    Many “single serve” or “meals for 2” recipies. Love this book!, November 24, 2013

    I got this yesterday and I have already read this whole book. I have the first 3 books and love them. This one is no different in that I love it too! Thank you Lindsay! This book has MANY single serve or recipes for 2. This is both good and bad. Many people I talk to say they want to try eating healthier but there spouse/children are not willing to try. This might be the perfect book for you! But since my husband is a body builder and my 3 kids are on board for Plant Based Meals … I will be tripling recipes to try these yummy creations. 🙂 This morning I made Ruby Chocolate Muffins for the family – instant hit! I think next to try is the Thai Crunch salad and the Tempeh Bacon for tomorrow morning with Pumpkin Pancakes! If you are new to Plant Based eating … this book is made with many ingredients you will likely already have in your pantry, if not your local grocery store should have them. Most meals are easy to prepare 30 mins of less. (this is great news for busy family’s!) I definitely recommend this book.

    Loving Light and Lean!!, December 4, 2013

    I have all of Happy Herbivore’s cookbooks, but this may be my favorite! Like all of Lindsay’s cookbooks, this is a plant based, no oil, low fat, quick-meals cookbook. The twist with this one is that it’s geared to folks who might want to lose weight or achieve certain calorie targets, although the food is healthy and delicious even if you aren’t. All of the meals are ginormous and filling and low calorie, even more so than her other books, which still had a lot of lean in them!

    Things I love in general about this book:
    * Lindsay has a very positive, relatable writing style. It’s like talking to a friend.
    * The look of the book is very bright and clean, with great graphics and color and tons of high quality photos. It is a very pretty cookbook.
    * All the recipes have calorie counts, nutritional details, and WW points if you need them.
    * I LOVE LOVE LOVE the part at the beginning where she lists which recipes are in certain calorie ranges. You can see this on the Amazon preview. It is nice because you can do your own meal planning! If you know you want a certain calorie target, you can pick things from each category to make your meal plans.
    * I love the recipe categories: breakfasts, baked goods, bowls and wraps (great section!), soups/stews, pastas, burgers, sandwiches/tacos, snacks, and desserts.
    * New snack category is awesome! I can’t wait to tuck into these recipes. For appetizers, this is perfect.
    * I love the drink section. Some warm drinks, some cool, some cocktails. It’s a nice touch from HHA and I hope it continues.
    * The Lean section is a great touch. The exercises are well thought out and photographed, and provide inspiration and several great ideas for how to incorporate exercise into your daily life. I’m glad the Lean section is there, but am also glad it’s not as big as the recipe section! 
    * Lindsay has recipes to use up ingredients you may have had to purchase for other recipes. For example, she has at least four (maybe more) recipes with canned pumpkin, so you won’t be left with a cup of random pumpkin and no idea what to do with it. And she often calls out where you could use the leftovers, like with the Skinny Puttanesca and Skinny Cheater Pad Thai which both use spaghetti squash.
    * I love the pictures of Lindsay hiking and snowboarding at the beginning and end of the book. It’s inspiring. I felt like, “I want to go there, too! It’s an adventure.”

    My only not-serious complaint is that Lindsay is so prolific with her writing that I can’t keep up. I’m still trying new things from “Happy Herbivore Abroad”!

    The first recipe I made after the cookbook arrived was a cocktail. The “Dublin” was awesome! Very fast and easy, with a super delicious chocolate/coffee flavor. Yummy. I know there are some comments on the alcohol drinks, but there are FOUR alcohol drinks in the cookbook and one is a super light spritzer with only a ¼ cup of wine in the whole thing. I know some people don’t imbibe, but it’s easy enough to just skip those four recipes if that’s you. It’s not like the book is a booze-fest. I appreciate the practical aspect of being provided with some low calorie, delicious cocktails because many people drink, and most doctors, including our whole foods, plant based doctors, support moderate alcohol intake.

    Something else that I know is important to many people is that there are no faux meats or cheeses in the book. Several recipes for DIY cheeses are included (Nacho Cheese, Cheese Ball!!, Cheese Spread, Parmesan), but nothing pre-made. I personally don’t mind using the occasional amount of faux meat/cheese but it takes a lot more skill to craft recipes that don’t rely on ready made things like that. Lindsay is also mindful of dietary needs. There are many soy-free and gluten-free recipes, and she always offers suggestions for modifications to make other recipes soy or gluten free. She uses beans and lentils much more than tofu, tempeh, and seitan/gluten; while I love all the veggie foods, I know beans are the best for filling me up! So I like that fiber punch.

    Other recipes I have made (besides the awesome Dublin):
    * Spinach Love Wrap: Refreshing and unusual – super filling and so low in calories you can eat two huge wraps!
    * Pumpkin Pancakes: Amazing and easy. Very fluffy and delicious.
    * Oatmeal 300: I LOVE this section. Lindsay gives a bunch of options for jazzing up oatmeal and they are all delicious combos and many rely on a banana or applesauce as a sweetener.
    * Breakfast Tacos: Incredible idea, and SO FILLING! I was full until 1pm after having two of these for breakfast. Perfect morning meal.
    * Pumpkin Chili: Super hearty and filling. Definitely try this one! It’s unusual and delicious.
    * Deviled “Eggs”: Game changer!! So simple and tasty and CUTE. Everyone will love these. They aren’t weird, even my omni…

    Lindsay Nixon hit another one out of the ball park with this book, just as she did the other three. I am astonished that she continues to come up with new and amazing recipes that are such a hit! It was fantastic to get this book before Thanksgiving as I was able to put it into use and get great reviews! I made the ruby chocolate muffins, which 5 year old Bella pronounced “Better than Delicious. They’re Great-licious!” The Lentil Joes are also amazing. And putting a delicious serving in a 100 calorie sandwich round gives an amazing, satisfying 231 calorie lunch! How great is that? And the Skinny Puttanesca? Oh. My. Word. One of the most delicious meals I’ve ever tasted. I’m looking forward to trying every recipe in this book and I’m sure I will continue to love the results!
