Book Review: The Part-Time Vegan
I received the Part-Time Vegan by Cherise Grifoni from booksneeze.com, first of many I hope!!
I love the layout of this book. Cherise does a great job introducing the benefits of being vegan without trying to convert anyone. I was shocked in the first chapter in her use of the word "hell". The recipes are split into different categories of dips and appetizers, breakfasts, salad dressings, salads, soups, rice, pasta, and more. Each recipe is broken into 4 different categories: protein, fiber, quick and flex. It includes the number of servings, the recipe, a description of the dish. Recipes include tips for making the dish and the most helpful part as a non-vegan was "the skinny on" various foods!!! This section describes the ingredient, what it tastes like and what it can be used for.
There are 11 dinner meal plans, including appetizer and dessert! These recipes are easy and delicious!! Even the desserts are very easy to make!
I was a little disappointed though by 2 factors, there are no pictures and there are no nutritional facts for the recipes!!! All in all though, this is a great little cookbook for anyone who is interested in trying to eat healthier and cut out some meat in your diet. :o)
