Week of Healthy Cookbooks: Happy Herbivore Abroad


Happy Herbivore Abroad

For the next few posts, I will be discussing and reviewing healthy cookbook/healthy eating books.  I love cookbooks – doesn’t matter if it’s old, new, or cut out clippings, but I love recipes, and when they are healthy — even better!  Today is going to focus on Lindsay Nixon’s Happy Herbivore Abroad book.  I’ve already discussed her The Happy Herbivore and Everyday Herbivore cookbooks (which are up there in greatest cookbooks for a healthy vegan in my opinion), and this one follows suite (as I was expecting coming from Lindsay).

Happy Herbivore Abroad

This book has over 125 recipes for healthy, low-fat, easy to prepare foods from around the world.  Love American food, but love trying out different types of food and experimenting with the different flavors and ingredients that other countries use for cooking.  But what I really love about this book is that the recipes are actually very simple and don’t use very hard-to-find ingredients.

I went to the desserts section first, naturally, and make the anise cookies.  Yum!  Then I went back to the page I dogeared – the German Lentil Stew.  This one’s so good!  And even more awesome, is that Lindsay actually has a video showing how to make this healthy and tasty stew!

You’ll definitely want to check out her book.  With 4.8 stars out of 399 reviews on Amazon and over 135 recipes, there’s nothing not to love.  Plus, you can take a peak inside the book with 23 recipes to whet your appetite!

Here’s the recipe that I LOVE!

  1. Oh goodness, we have to pick just one?! I love Italian, Japanese, Indian…I can keep going. Each one is great!

  2. I love Mexican food!

  3. I have such a difficult time choosing, but Indian would have to be #1 and that would probably be the top choice for all 3 of us (my husband, our daughter, and me). We love dosa!!

  4. My favorite is my heritage — Italian food! But so many others! probably Thai and Indian next…

  5. So tough to choose, but I think my ultimate favorite would be Italian inspirations… love bread and tomato sauce! Thanks for this giveaway!!

  6. I love falafel!
