Diagnosed with prediabetes in 2011, chef Petusevsky (The Whole Foods Market Cookbook) dramatically changed his lifestyle, committing to regular exercise and a mostly vegetarian diet. Appealing to several classifications of "-tarians" (vegetarians, flexitarians, fruitarians, and vegans), he explains how to stock a vegetarian pantry and cook foods that have helped him manage his condition. Organized by course (e.g., soups, raw and ready salads, on the side), creative recipes such as autumn skillet paella and twice-cooked sweet potato croquettes (baked, not fried) emphasize flavor over health benefits. Each recipe lists serving sizes, exchange values, and nutrition information. VERDICT Petusevsky's latest title can help readers find flavorful vegetarian recipes that suit their dietary needs.
