Cookbook Review: Happy Herbivore

by Anjali Sareen on March 7, 2012

The plant-strong diet is slowly but surely gaining momentum all over the world and one of the biggest silent contributors to this process is cookbooks. Everyone loves to eat, right? Well, if you don’t now, you surely will by the time you’re through with Lindsay S. Nixon’s “The Happy Herbivore”.

This cookbook not only has an abundance of plant-strong recipes, but also contains recipes with tastes from all over the world. Some highlights include No-Huevos Rancheros (p. 23), a traditional Mexican breakfast dish and Chana Palak Masala (p. 77), an Indian vegetable dish consisting of chickpeas, spinach, and spices. Even better – all the recipes are easy to make, use basic, easy-to-find ingredients, and are delicious!

Even with these great recipes, the Happy Herbivore cookbook still has something extra special: all the recipes are made with no added fat (such as oil) or refined sugar. CNN recently did an hour long special on the prevention of heart attacks and reversal of heart disease (read more about it here), and in it, noted that renowned plant-based physician Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn advocates a complete ban on any kind of oil, which adds only empty calories and no nutrition to your diet. Lindsay Nixon has taken this advice in stride and created a book filled with not only delicious, but also heart-healthy recipes.
