Happy Herbivore: Light & Lean

by Lindsay S. Nixon (BenBella)

Eating healthy is damn hard. Preparation, shopping, the effort required to do more than call for pizza every night---harder still if you're vegetarian or vegan and not quite sure where to start. This is where popular blogger and recipe conjurer Lindsay S. Nixon comes in. Her new cookbook, hot on the heels of three other similarly inspired recipe collections (Everyday Happy Herbivore, Happy Herbivore Abroad and the original Happy Herbivore Cookbook) takes her ethos of easily prepared (30 minutes or less, yo, that's less time than an episode of Parenthood), processed food and chemical-free, tasty vegan meals and adds a low-calorie cap and at-home exercises to jump start your lagging new year's resolutions. From a spaghetti squash puttanesca to blueberry-lemon muffins and an insanely delicious chipotle chili---everything I've tried so far has been a hit with fellow vegetarians and meat-eaters alike. Don't let lack of know-how stop you from churning out impressive meals by the truck-full (unless you're following one of the included meal plans).
