The Happy Herbivore Cookbook!


Vegan Chocolate Cupcakes - almost fat free!
 Just when you thought you couldn't eat a single more piece of food after the holidays, a cookbook comes out that dares you to get back into the fray of the kitchen. And often, that spells disaster for your New Year's resolutions, but if you've decided to work on cutting down on the meat and fat in your diet or are even going (or are) all-out vegan and just want to feel healthier, this time there's a book for you. I was fortunate enough to be a tester for Lindsay (AKA Happy Herbivore) as she was writing her first ever print cookbook (congrats, Lindsay!) and if the food I made was any indication of the rest of the book's goodies I can bet I'll be in the kitchen for some time after I get my hands on a copy. One of the best things about it (especially after this glorious season of excess) is that the recipes are all very low-fat or fat free, without sacrificing flavour or nutrition. It's a great balance between the cook and nutritionist in me!
Yum! Apple Spice Cake

The only downside is that I, like everyone else, have to wait for it!! You can pre-order it on Amazon so you can get it ASAP after it's released on the 25th of January, and it should be in stores around then too (at least in the US, I'm not too sure about Canadian release dates). Stop by the HH site and say hi, and check out all our delicious tester photos on Flickr for some awesome vegan foodie pRon!
