From the Publisher

Vegetarian Times’, November/December 2010
“Offers 125 recipes for low-fat, plant-based dishes that don’t skimp on flavor.”

Vegetarian Living (UK), December 2010
“Jam-packed with mouth-watering vegan recipes that are low in fat and light on calories…[Moskowitz’s] recipes are visual and gastronomic delights, which inspire the reader to try new things and cook outside of their comfort zone, while never underestimating the beauty of the familiar.” 

ThisDishisVeg.com, 12/8/10
“[Isa Moskowitz is] the queen of the vegans.”
 

PortlandPress Herald, 12/15/10
“A snappy cookbook that embraces whole plant foods without a sugary snack in sight. Those avoiding gluten or soy will appreciate the numerous gluten-free and soy-free recipes, and everyone is sure to learn something from the preparation and nutrition tips [Moskowitz] sprinkles throughout the book. Best of all, her recipes for goodies such as OMG Oven-Banked Onion Rings, Tamarind BBQ Tempeh & Sweet Potatoes, and Chipotle Lentil Burgers will make even dedicated carnivores appreciate the pleasures of plant-based meals.”

The results are tasty dishes with no guilt attached.”
 
LeslieLovesVeggies.com, 12/23/10
“Contains 125 fabulous recipes that are quick to make and most take 30 minutes or less to prepare. These tasty dishes are easy on the budget and are made with real food for real people. Nothing bizarre, no outlandish over the top ingredients, just good for ya, low fat, delish vegan food! Oh and the portions are real, too! None of these ridiculous tiny serving sizes to get the low calorie counts. These are real servings folks!”
 
Examiner.com, 12/20/10
“Moskowitz is a proven advisor you want to have in the vegan kitchen with you, consistently creating recipes that are at once accessinle to the home cook and impressive enough to show off to those you want to, well, impress. Appetite for Reduction…will knock your socks off, just in time for a great Christmas gift for omnivores or vegans alike and strengthen some of those New Year’s resolutions…Easy-to-follow directions, well-organized chapters, [and] gorgeous art direction and helpful tips…The icons that designate quick-to-prepare, gluten- and soy-free recpies make this cookbook especially user-friendly…Appetite for Reduction casts its culinary net wide…The recipes span the globe and include rare treats calorie-conscious diners usually don’t get to enjoy…Appetite for Reduction gives lots of creative, easy and tasty opportunities to eat healthfully…A very worthwhile edition to anyone’s cookbook collection.”
 
GreenWala.com, 12/27/10
“[Moskowitz] has done a lot for dispelling the myth that vegan food equals rabbit food or that it’s not satisfying…The tone is conversational and often humorous and the book is not just about leaner recipes. Appetite refers also to environmental impact, animal cruelty, and your bank account.”

VegNews, February 2011
“From the grand dame of vegan cookbooks, Appetite doesn’t leave you hungry…From salads that satisfy like meals to hearty pasta dishes to every vegetable imaginable, Appetite doesn’t miss a beat…Unlike other diet books, Appetite isn’t about dropping 20 pounds in a weekend; it’s about eating healthfully in a way that can lead to weight loss without resorting to drastic measures—measures which Moskowitz assures are guaranteed to pile pounds right back on.”

EatDrinkBetter.com, 12/30/10

EatDrinkBetter.com, 12/31/10

WomanAroundTown.com, 12/20/10
“Crammed full of good advice as well as tasty recipes.”
 
GoDairyFree.org, 1/4/11
“[Moskowitz’s] latest cookbook could be one of her greatest yet…Anyone who has already inhaled a lifetime's worth of vegan sweets and processed foods, or who is interested in the vegan diet for health reasons, will probably love Appetite for Reduction.”
 
TreeHugger.com, 1/4/11
“If you're suffering through the fourth day of some weird diet, you might want to pick up a copy of this book and make yourself something good to eat.”
 
New YorkDaily News, 1/9/11
“[Moskowitz is] the queen of vegan cooking”

San Francisco Book Review
, 1/10/11

“Moskowitz has singlehandedly revolutionized vegan cooking…Appetite is brimming not only with recipes, but also detailed nutritional information useful to everyone, but especially important to those who seek essential vitamins and nutrients from nontraditional (non-animal) sources. But if you’re worried about typical bland diet food, have no fear: This is an Isa Chandra Moskowitz cookbook after all. While all recipes are between 200 and 400 calories per serving, each is loaded with delicious, vibrant flavor.”

Long Island
Press, 1/7/11
“Contains 125 delectable, nutritionally-balanced recipes for the foods you crave—lasagna, tacos, barbecue, curries, stews, and much more—and it’s all only 200 to 400 calories per serving, plant-based and packed with nutrients, low in saturated fat and sugar; high in fiber and, well, delicious.”

South
CoastInsider, January 2011
“Moskowitz is the best and most creative of all the chefs working with plant based foods…This is not your mother’s low-fat cookbook.”

InfoDad.com, 1/13/11

 “It moves along like a well-oiled machine, starting with salads and continuing with side dishes, beans (a mainstay of this type of cooking), tofu and tempeh, soups, stews and more...It contains solid information and a variety of recipes that vegans will find tasty.”

BBC Good Food
(UK), February 2011
“This is a vegan diet book, but forget your preconceptions and look at the food. Isa is an amazing cook—her recipes are delicious and written for people who want to lose weight, but not their enjoyment of food. She uses spices cleverly to make you forget you’re eating low fat and ups the grain and veg content to keep you satisfied. Isa reworks favorites making them lighter and healthier. Her book is worth buying for the salad dressings alone.”
 
Natural Health, February 2011
“[A] great read!...Moskowitz—a tireless crusader against the perception that meatless, dairy-free meals taste like cardboard—proves low-fat can be delicious. While offering plenty of tips for novice vegans, Moskowitz’s recipes are interesting and flavorful enough to delight seasoned meatless mavens, too.”

Washington
Post, 1/19/11
“Surprisingly creamy and hearty, this vegan soup [Cauliflower Pesto Soup] is elegant enough to serve as a first course at any dinner party.”

Hudson
ValleyNews,
“If you’re not vegan, but simply don’t like meat very much, you’ll find many tasty recipes here.”

January Magazine
(Canada), 12/20/10
Appetite for Reduction is all about real food for real people, really easily…What’s not to like?...Spend a lot of time eating from the recipes in this book and you will get smaller.”

 
Living Without, 1/25/11
“[The] tortilla soup has a light tomato broth and simple yet assertive seasoning. Stirring crushed tortilla chips into the soup as it cooks gives it a full-bodied texture.”
 
PortlandOregonian, 1/25/11
“Leave it to innovative cookbook author Isa Chandra Moskowitz, the co-author of Veganomicon, to come up with a collection of 125 low-fat recipes that won't have you leaving the table hungry…Moskowitz's writing style is accessible and fun, and she demystifies ingredients like tempeh and tofu…Every recipe has detailed nutritional analysis, including vitamin content, something too many diet cookbooks don't bother with.”
 
The Hippo, 1/20/11
“As with previous Moskowitz books, one thing not sacrificed is flavor. She plays with Asian, Mediterranean, Indian and Latin cuisine with her recipes in ways that make you feel like you’re not losing taste by cutting out fat.”
 

Library Journal, 2/15/11
“[Moskowitz] begins with information on vegan nutrition and shares ­under-400-calorie recipes that are packed with flavor. Those new to a low-fat vegan diet may be surprised by satisfying meals such as OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings, Chipotle Lentil Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries, Mac & Trees (macaroni, cheese, and broccoli), and Chili Verde con Papas. Best-selling author Moskowitz is sure to create demand.”

SFoodie blog, 2/11/11
“Queen Vegan Bee Isa Chandra Moskowitz…is pretty much the best and her new book, Appetite for Reduction, is truly excellent.”

All Shook Down blog, 2/11/11

“Isa Chandra Moskowitz is a rock star in the vegan world…and has co-authored and authored five books on the subject, including the definitive roundup Veganomicon. This Saturday she'll discuss her brand new, equally groundbreaking cookbook Appetite for Reduction.”

The Vegan
, UK, March 2011
“If you’re aiming to lose weight, or just eat healthily, but still enjoy food, this is the book for you.”
 
MidwestBook Review, February 2011“Shows that healthy cooking can be lively and varied…Any vegan cook needs this inspiring, unique title.”

 
Living Without, April/May 2011
“This new book…is a winner for losers—weight losers, that is…Moskowitz offers delicious dishes that fill you up…There’s no scrimping on nutrients or culinary creativity…Welcome to low-fat meals that are satisfying and mouthwatering, too.”

Deseret
News, 3/9/11
Appetite for Reduction blows the idea of bland salads out of the water…[Moskowitz’s] recipes are inviting [and] sound delicious…[Her] directions are so easy to follow and she gives great food handling tips along the way.”

Portland
Oregonian, 3/7/11
“Moskowitz is one of the most-prolific and readable vegan cookbook authors out there. She co-authored Veganomicon, which is practically the Bible for newbie vegan cooks, and her other titles have shown how vegan cookies, cupcakes and breakfast treats can be decadent and rich.”
 
The Vegetarian, UK, Spring 2011
“This book is for anyone whose philosophy is that dieting shouldn’t mean restricting yourself to eating small portions of bland vegetables, side salads or relying on diet shakes…Isa shows that, with the right ideas and inspiration, diet food can be quick, imaginative and tasty.”
 
ForeWord Reviews, March/April 2011“Hearty, low-fat vegan fare is complemented by a veteran cookbook author's considerable gift for gab in this winning collection...With this selection in hand, serious cooks with high standards can feel confident inviting over their finicky foodie friends.”

Bust, April/May 2011
“Bursting with inventive, flavorful techniques for lightening up comfort-food favorites and for making plants pop in new and exciting ways.”

“Talk of the Town,” WTVF–CBS Nashville, 3/1/11
“The perfect book for that picky vegetarian who is determined to eat healthy and maybe even lose some weight.”
 
Chatelaine.com, 4/12/11“[This book] won't appeal only to people who don't eat animal products…[Moskowitz’s] ingredients are fresh, but they're also accessible: veggies, common spices, beans and rice are frequently used here. As an added bonus, the lack of meat and processed meat and dairy alternatives makes most of this book great for chefs on a budget. And most importantly, this food is tasty.”


ElevateDifference.com, 4/15/11
“For those in the vegan community who are also health conscious, Moskowitz has delivered the goods on a plate too irresistible to deny. Isa Chandra Moskowitz is the best friend we’re all looking for: she writes in a way we understand, a language that is easily understood and humorous. She is also the cook we want for our healthy lives and families. She gets it. She gets that we don’t want to give up taste and satisfaction for healthy living…From funky hummus creative ideas to ‘OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings,’ from sides to satisfying full entrée ideas, Moskowitz turns your vegan kitchen upside down, shakes out the fat, and replaces it with novel and tasty ideas to keep your mind interested and your tongue happy you tried something new…Vegan or omnivore, you will find something to rave about an savor in Appetite for Reduction.”
 
Curled Up with a Good Book, 5/29/11Appetite for Reduction not only provides extremely diverse and relatively easy recipes using a huge range of plant-based food; it is an enlightening, entertaining must-have cookbook for vegans, experimental vegans, and even the carnivore chef. Highly Recommended.”

Vegetarian Journal, Vol. XXX, no. 3
“Features 125 recipes that are low in calories but rank high for substance and creativity…Helpful hints are found throughout…Gorgeous color photos.”

Taste for Life magazine, August 2011
“Moskowitz’s 125 vegan recipes are nutritious and fun to cook.”

Bust, October/November 2011
“[A] vegan cookbook author with a tremendous following.”

EntertainmentRealm.com, 1/18/12Appetite for Reduction features conversational language, side bar tips (cooking/shopping/basic food information), nutritional guides, nutritional tips and simple yet tasty recipes.”

VegNews, November/December 2012

    Excellent vegan cookbook!!

    As a Minnesotan, I usually find that most vegan cookbook require ingredients that are simply not available in my area. Ms. Moskowitz has supplied us with a cookbook which is filled with recipes that doesn't require a two hour expedition to find ingredients!! ( and there was much rejoicing) I have found these recipes easy to follow and you have a great vegan meal in under an hour!! My favorites so far are Potato and Spinach curry, Moroccan chickpeas and zucchini, and mushroom tibs. "Appetite for Reductions" is a great cookbook that has helped me to eat and feel better. As most of the ingredients are inexpensive this has also been great way to try different foods while waiting for winter to finally to go away!! I strongly recommend!

    My family and I love this cookbook! My favorite recipe is "Hottie Black-Eyed Peas and Greens", amazing flavor! We have made this recipe at least 3 times already! I can't say enough about this book. I also loved reading the beginning about the author, she is a riot!

    Love it!!

    I have the paper copy because i got it before i got my nook. This is an amazing cookbook with a large variety of recipes. I just about collect vegan cookbooks and this is one of my many favorites. The apple-butternut squash soup in this book is to die for!! I would also suggest the happy herbivore, vegan cookies invade your cookie jar, vegan with a vengence and vegan yum yum. You wont have to worry about overly complicated ingredients in this book, a lot of the ingredients can easily be found at your neighborhood grocer. Not to mention Makowitz is quite the funny woman in her "cookbook commentary" a must have for vegans who love variety.

    Easy, delicious and hilarious!

    A friend of ours lent us this cookbook when we introduced a vegan diet into our home. We immediately purchased our own copy. The author is entertaining throughout the whole book and really gets you excited about trying out new vegan menus. Nothing too exotic - just scrumptious, unique recipes. We especially recommend the Hoisin Mustard Tofu!

    It's a

    This is a great book for a beginner vegetarian as that's where I am. The recipes give so much variety and everything has been DELICIOUS. Of all the books I bought to introduce me to this diet, this is the one I keep using. Useful tips are given for substitutions in recipes which expand ones knowledge of how to cook vegetarian. It also gives nutritional info about all the recipes which is interesting.

    Decent - not great

    This book is not as good as Isa's other books (e.g., Vegan With A Vengeance Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar, Vegan Cupcakes take over the World, etc...). We LOVE Isa's other books. Just so you know, we typically follow a very lowfat, vegan diet (e.g., McDougall). In this book, the recipes are fat and calorie reduced (yes!), the techniques are great, and the recipes are easy to follow. However, the dishes seem to be missing the excellent flavors that Isa incorporated into her other works. My husband and I think the recipes I've made from Appetite for Reduction are not bad - just not great.

    Even if you aren't vegan. . .

    I am not a vegan or a vegetarian, but in an effort to change up my diet and cooking a bit I decided to try this book. I was familiar with the author from her other cookbooks and so when I saw this and instantly saw several recipes of interest, I opted to invest in a copy. So glad I did! Isa uses ingredients that are easily accessible overall, affordable, tasty, and seemingly healthy. So far I have tried 3 recipes and each one has been a hit. Highly recommend the black bean, zucchini, and olive tacos. So good!

    Another classic from Ms Moskowitz

    I own other vegan cookbooks by Isa Chandra Moskowitz, but I held off buying Appetite for Reduction, thinking that I wasn't particularly interested in low-fat vegan meals as I already eat a healthy diet full of vegetables. After hearing so many good things about this book, I bought it and I am so glad I did. Everything I have made so far has been fantastic. Most of Isa's recipes are from ingredients that you can buy just about anywhere and the recipes themselves are easy to follow and always turn out great. It has excellent recipes for salads and homemade dressings. Everyone I've ever made any of Isa's recipes for, has given rave reviews (and I'm the only vegan, they are nearly always omnis). A definite must for your cookbook collection!

    Delicious Variety of Vegan Recipes!!

    As a vegan it is hard to find cookbooks that offer a good variety of recipes. I usually find myself eating the same thing and craving my old food. This cookbook is AMAZING and each recipe is so satisfying, flavorful, filling, and low fat! The ingredients are very easy to find and inexpensive. No crazy vegan substitutes here! Not to mention the recipes are vegan and DELICIOUS!! I made the Potato and Spinach Curry tonight and my non vegan boyfriend loved it! I love being able to eat Indian food without feeling guilty about it.

    Buy this NOW!!!

    Watch out for the chili powder!

    What otherwise would have been a delicious mole with black beans turned out WAY too hot! Should have gone with my instinct and held back on the amazing amount called for in the recipe. Recommend you add the chili powder last, gradually--and taste as you go.

    Outstanding Cookbook

    My husband and I have been vegetarians for the last 30 years and turned vegan about 10 years ago. Ms. Moskowitz's books are the BEST vegan cookbooks available (no, I'm not her friend and do not know her) but I love all of Isa's cookbooks. This one is great for those of us who need to watch our weight. The recipes are delicious and do not require an all day commitment; most of these recipes only take about 30 minutes. Husband loves them too.
