"I absolutely love how Kim has made vegan cooking so simple and delicious.  This cookbook has me wanting to try my hand at every dish – YUM!"

“Leave it to Kim Barnouin to come up with the spiciest cookbook of the season; and we’re not just talking about taste. …Where Barnouin shines is in her easy to understand overview of problematic ingredients … her analysis of everything from global fish depletion to the truth on organic foods is actually well worthy of serious consideration and finally proves that eating healthy can actually be fun.”

Kirkus
"Barnouin gives home, beauty and style some loving in this sassy new guide.Using the same formula that made vegan opus Skinny Bitch a whirlwind success (along with the subsequent sequels), the author trains her focus on the eco-friendly household. True to her brand’s form, Barnouin’s latest dispenses disturbing information about the toxicity and overall evilness of standard household items. She warns of benzene in paint and furniture (a known carcinogen), BPA in plastics (which imitates estrogen in the body and causes myriad health problems), phthalates in nail polish (linked to cancer in lab animals) and many more. Part of the series’ appeal emerges from the author’s ability make hippie philosophies seem glamorous, and this installment is no different. She explores each topic with girly banter and a good dose of verbal lashing. Some of Barnouin’s mantras will be too hardcore for average readers, such as avoiding bleach as a cleaning product. And her advice to abandon wardrobe purchases consisting of polyester, non-organic cotton, leather, down, fur or fabric dyes will leave fashionistas with little to wear. Those wondering if any of their possessions are safe may find solace in the decidedly more mellow segments on gardening, recycling, essential oils and DIY facials. Ladies seeking an irreverent guide to an eco-friendly home will enjoy this fun primer."

“There are so many reasons to love author – and chef extraordinaire – Kim Barnouin. If writing the award-winning Skinny Bitch (with co-author Rory Freedman) wasn’t enough, now she’s gone and crafted my favorite cookbook to date. My copy is littered with tabs to remind me which mouthwatering recipes I want to return to stat. I appreciate how the book opens with practical tips and useful information, such as a list of The Dirty Dozen and The Clean Fifteen. She discusses buying seasonal, the eleven worst food additives on the market, and a few facts about the ever hot topic, soy. There’s an herb and spice chart loaded with info, as well as a recommended shopping list for the perfect pantry. Need I say more? Indeed, there’s more that could be said, but maybe you just buy it.”

Several recipes in the e-book version had errors in the ingredients...instead of the fraction being displayed (i.e. "1/3" or "2/3"), a "?" or a box were displayed. This made following the recipes very difficult. Tried changing the font on the iTouch app and the Windows PC version without success. Buy the paper version.

i read through the book and did not find anything worth cooking. I am a gourmet cook and cook all types of food and I was very disappointed. I would not recommend this book to any other vegetarians.

This book is absolutely hilarious! It is no nonsense, straight to the point, this is how it is, yet it also has the perfect amount of humor so that even though some of it may be disturbing you still find reasons to laugh. Definitely informative and yet it is brought about in a clear fashion. Definitely read if you are vegetarian/vegan or not!

very easy to understand and the recipes taste just as good as the meat alternatives. I have tried several recipes so far and they don't taste like diet food either

Useful, tasty, and easy to make recipes for every day living.

It's a cookbook that I have looked at, but not had time to experiment with yet. It's fun to look at and looks like the recipes will be good.

This is one of my favorite cookbooks. I tried many of its recipes and they are as delicious as they are healthy. The great thing is that you don't have to feel guilty after eating these meals. It is a great cookbook to have. I gave a copy to all my friends for Christmas and they all loved it.

Wonderful recipes with glorious color pictures that anyone can pull off. The best part about this book is the science behind it. Barnouin has really done her research and gives great information about foods that should be avoided if you're concerned with your health or the environment, and provides tasty alternatives.

Loved this! So informative- not JUST a collection of recipes! Tons of information on the why & how of things and even includes a list of pantry staples! Great pictures and descriptions for each recipe and I have loved every one I've tried! Highly recommended!

I agree with the other reviewer who says she does not acknowledge coconut oil (interesting, indeed). There's something else she leaves out as well, though I can't remember it since I haven't used the book in a few weeks (flaxseed?). As with all recipes, these are guidelines that can be modified as needed. I use whole wheat and ground flax a lot myself, plus I'm not vegan. There was still plenty of good recipes and excellent information on all the &^$# that seems to permeate food around here. I love her in-your-face narration and sense of humor as well. --and now I remember what it was. Coconut milk isn't in her section for non-dairy substitute, and as someone lactose intolerant, I switch between Silk soy and Blue Diamond almond and coconut-almond milk regularly (extra points for mentioning why you should NOT have too much soy in your diet!). It still has a ton of Vitamin E, and 50% more calcium than the almond milk itself. Yeah, there's a bit more fat, but you appreciate it more before your 1.5-mile walk to work in the morning when you're not as hungry soon afterwards =^)

This is a very good introduction to vegan recipes and I have tried a number of them with success. She totally ignores coconut oil, though, which is the healthiest oil to use. Also disappointed that she uses white flour because white flour only turns to sugar in your body; there is no nutritional value in it. I've worked the recipes around my needs with success.

Great recipes that taste good. Some of the ingredients are hard to find but worth looking for.
