Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

These days people "go vegan" for all kinds of reasons: ethical, ecological, weight reduction, diabetes control, heart health. Dr. Neal Barnard's Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook helps you get there by combing 125 animal-product recipes with menus, medical advice, tips for newbies, and inspiring stories from people who have made the switch successfully. A starter kit that works.

From the Publisher

VegNews, December 2010
“Favorite Vegan MD”
 
Library Journal, 5/21/10
“A terrific lifestyle guide for anyone wishing to lose weight, cut cholesterol, and reverse the symptoms of type 2 diabetes. After they detail the science behind a low-fat vegan diet, the authors include tons of simple, healthful breakfast, lunch, and dinner recipes for a variety of palates…Recipes are short and contain detailed information on calories, saturated fat, and vitamins and minerals…A good complement to Donna Klein’s Vegan Italiano and The Mediterranean Vegan Kitchen, this is recommended for vegetarians and those looking to expand their diabetic cookbook collection.”

Blogcritics.org , 6/17/10
“This man is seriously into nutrition. But what about taste? Barnard and Webb’s recipes are especially appealing to those who are not fans of TVP (texturized vegetable protein)…The first fifty pages of The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook serve as a primer on vegan cooking, the health-benefits of a vegan diet, and nutrition…For the appetizer lover, there are plenty of spreads and finger foods…Ethnic dishes, main dishes, soups, desserts—there’s plenty to tempt you…Bottom Line: Would I buy The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook? With vegetarians and vegans in my family, I need it on my kitchen bookshelf, but—let’s face it—there are plenty of offerings that everyone, regardless of diet, can enjoy.”
 

VegNews, July/Aug 2010
“For those just getting started on a plant-based diet, Neal Barnard, MD, and Robyn Webb offer the ultimate start-up guide…Eye-opening facts help give those on the fence a final push, and first-hand testimonials are sure to inspire change…All dishes are simple, low fat, and yummy…Once you’re on the road to a healthy, plant-based lifestyle, it’s the perfect volume to pass on to a friend.”
 
BergenRecord, 6/28/10
“Showcase[s] the merits of a vegan diet. Most dishes are simple, many with fewer than 10 ingredients and three steps, making it ideal for novices.”
 
Bookviews, July 2010
“There’s plenty of diversity among the recipes that include green chile and oyster mushroom crepes, sweet potato soup, and even snacks. All recipes are low in fat. If you’re new to the vegan lifestyle, this book will appear intriguing.”
 

Treehugger.com (discussing the Sun Dried Tomato Spread pg 162), 6/30/10
“This sun-dried tomato spread is so creamy, people might think it has mayonnaise in it, but the secret is silken tofu…This is a great spread to have on hand. It’s delicious as a base for a grilled vegetable sandwich, or you can spread it on a bagel instead of cream cheese and it’s quite satisfying.”
 

Tucson Citizen, 7/14/10
“[Barnard’s] 125 recipes stress convenience, versatility, and taste…Whether your goal is take the plunge and go vegan or you just want to eliminate some meats from your diet and substitute more healthy alternatives, this cookbook will be helpful.”
 
San Francisco Book Review, 7/12/10
“I can’t help but be thrilled by receiving a good vegan cookbook to review…It’s vegan in every sense of the word, but I love that the emphasis is on eating a well-balanced, whole foods diet, rather than creating poor substitutions of everyone’s meat-filled favorites…Another thing I love about this book is that the author, Neal Barnard, MD, is promoting a vegan diet for scientifically sound reasons—reasons that are thoroughly explained in the first few chapters…Let The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook serve as a reminder to you all that cooking vegan does not have to be a daunting idea!  This book is full of good meal ideas that are healthy, delicious, and remarkably simple to make.”
 
Foodista.com, 7/12/10
“Make[s] it easier than ever for those willing to take the plunge to assemble healthy, delicious vegan meals…This is a great book for those who aren’t big on tofu or other texturized vegetable protein—Dr. Barnard and Webb focus on vegetables and yummy carbs such as rice or polenta to round out meals. This is a great addition to any cook’s bookshelf, regardless of diet.”
 
GoDairyFree.org
“Features all-occasion recipes that use familiar ingredients and require minimal effort.”
 

The Hippo, 7/15/10

“A nice place to turn for some general vegan-diet information…The recipes are straightforward and cover a lot of comfort foods…that can help you transition from foods you may be eating to a meat-and-dairy-free lifestyle.”

SacramentoBook Review, 7/23/10
“The science is explained fully in an undeniable way, complete with testimonials, and tips are given to help readers transition…Most [recipes] are simple and quick to make, containing ingredients found in any grocery store.  The dishes themselves sound delicious; any foodie inclined toward eating healthy will surely find themselves drooling in anticipation…This one is definitely recommended.”

“Talk of the Town” (WTVF), 7/26/10
“How can any dish taste great without cheese? You would be surprised and delighted with the offerings from authors Barnard and Webb.”
 

HealthyVoyager.com, 8/2/10 “I was over the moon when I received [Dr. Barnard’s] cookbook. Teamed up with nutritionist Robyn Webb, these 2 knock it out of the park! What is great about this cookbook is that it isn’t just recipes. It explains the benefits of a plant based diet as well as covering how the recipes in the book will assist you in reaching optimal health…Just looking at the ingredients and the variety of dishes is enough to get your salivary glands going…You can’t go wrong with The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook!”

MidwestBook Review, August 2010
“Any library strong in vegan cookbooks must have [this]…It packs in over a hundred easy recipes and pairs them with color photos and explanations from a noted physician who explains the basics of a vegan diet and its health benefits. The dishes are based on ordinary ingredients and take no time…Any vegan collections must add this!”

Curled Up With A Good Book, September 2010
“Deliver[s] pages and pages of vegan recipes…Most of them are a snap to make…All of them are yummy enough that I’d gladly eat them every day…For those who are curious about a vegan diet but aren’t ready to go at it full tilt, this is the book to start with…For those who want to improve their health, Barnard’s advice and information is invaluable.”
 
Vegetarians in Paradise
“Barnard presents information on the efficacy of a vegan diet that is grounded on extensive research…An excellent guidebook for anyone embarking on a journey to a healthier lifestyle.”
 

Metapsychology Online Reviews, 3/31/11 “A great addition to a vegan's cookbook collection…[It] calls for very few specialized vegan ingredients…making the dietary changes less of a strenuous job for the novice or aspiring vegan…Definitely a good source for vegan neophytes, as well as for lifelong vegans, who can also probably use it as an instrument to expand their recipe repertoire.”

    "Cool" Cooking.

    A favorable review: educational and informative. The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook by Neal Barnard, MD and nutritionist Robyn Webb has some nice vegan recipes that are worth trying. The "Did You Know?" space in the recipes offers some great information. For example, one says "studies show that 1/2 teaspoon (0.5 g) of ginger taken daily helps prevent seasickness, start a few days before you embark"; another says, "the word lentil comes from Latin, referring to its lenslike shape"; *packed with iron, protein, fiber, vitamins, and minerals lentils are a popular dietary staple in many countries; also it says, "the word paella is derived from the Latin word patella, which means "pan," paella is commonly cooked in a shallow pan and is traditionally eaten straight from the patella. You can find paella cooking pans at your local specialty cooking store." Some of the information you will also find on Dr. Neal's DVD about diabetes. Add a little flavor to your vegan diet by trying some of these recipes. Enjoy!

    love this book

    I have never bought a cook book before and I am not a vegan. Mostly I just get recipes from family and friends. I am halfway through this book. Cooking and eating every recipe and I love it. I find cooking in a slightly different way produces not only healthy meals but great tasting and interesting foods.

    Yum!

    This is a great collection of recipes, whether you are vegan or not! I am not, but try to eat vegan meals frequently, because of all the health benefits. I have tried 4 or 5 of the recipes so far, and all have been winners. Very glad I purchased this!

    Recipes Too Large

    I read this book thoroghly to learn how to be a vegan, but I needed basic principles so I could make up my own recipes and plan my own meals. Recipes given are much too large fo one person. I enjoyed the information given as far as it went.
