What' your favorite cookbook?

#1 Postby VegHead » Mon Jul 17, 2006 8:40 am

I noticed many vegan cookbooks are loaded with sugar and white starches. What's up with that?

I will start

My favourite Vegan Cooking book is ''Vegan Planet'', they have 400 recipes, and the recipes are so easy.. seriously, every vegan should buy their copy of this book. i recommend. =)

I also have ''Vegan World Fusion Cousine'' it's a outstanding book, but 90% of the recipes there are not ''everyday-easy-simple-to-prepare'' recipes, it's a great book though, but not for making 'everyday' food.

I've enjoyed the recipes from Stepaniak's Vegan Sourcebook.

I like vegan with a vengence and of course vegan cupcakes take over the world purely for the pics and the fact that cupcakes are fab :)

Does anyone know of a vegan cookbook that gives the total calorie count? Meal planners?

Thanx

Don't bother counting calories...its only worth doing if your eating lousy food. The Thrive Diet is a great book because it has lots of recipes and a 12 week meal plan...if not that though pretty much any organic/health purposed vegan cookbook will be good so long as you don't eat the same thing over and over again. If you mix things up you'll be fine.

I LOVE Vegan with a Vengence. I just received my copy of Thrive and went shopping today for the recipes for the first week of the 12 weeks. I will start tomorrow! Also my roommate (a meateater) is going vegan with the Thrive plan (as a trial, but I suspect she will like how she feels going vegan and perhaps it will be more than a trial!)

Hi everyone,

Thanks for the reccommendations. I think I'll try that Thrive first & see how it goes. I agree w/veganpotter, you gotta mix it up or you'll get bored. I suppose it's like anything. You can eat only but so much brown rice & tofu...lol, lol
