If you’ve ever struggled to find good vegan recipes, you’ll love Angela Liddon’s “Oh She Glows” cookbook. I put (Vegan) in brackets in the title of this post because I wanted you to know that this is a vegan cookbook but I also wanted to downplay the fact that is is a vegan cookbook. Why? Because when most people hear ‘vegan’, they think ‘yuck’ … and believe me, I’ve had my share of yucky vegan meals, but so far, the recipes I’ve tried from this cookbook were delicious!

I’m not vegan or vegetarian; however, I do think that many people would benefit from adding some HEALTHY vegetarian/vegan meals and snack into their diet – and I’m emphasizing the word healthy, because you can be an unhealthy vegan or vegetarian.

It takes thought and planning to prepare healthy, nutritionally balanced vegetarian or vegan meals. I’ve seen too many people go vegan or vegetarian by replacing foods such as healthy meats, eggs, poultry and dairy products with processed grain and starch products (e.g. cereals, crackers, bread, pasta) as well as other not-so-healthy substitutions (e.g. replacing butter with margarine, or honey with corn syrup) instead of healthy alternatives such as more fresh vegetables and fruits, legumes, healthy fats, and raw nuts and seeds.

I like to have several ‘meatless’ meals during the week, and the Oh She Glows cookbook is a great reference for inspiration.

You’ll find loads of yummy vegan breakfast, smoothies, appetizer, salad, soup, and entree ideas in this cookbook. For those of you who are my clients or have attended my workshops, you’ll know how to adjust some of the recipes to make them ‘Anna approved’.   :o)   Of course, the best Anna-approved recipes are the ones you’ll find in the recipe section of my website, although most are not vegan.
