The Vegucation of Robin

“Generally, we’re not served veggies. But people like it. They will eat it if it’s put in front of them.”

Robin Quivers, in an interview with New Jersey Star-Ledger, on her vegan diet, cancer recovery and cookbook The Vegucation of Robin. If Quivers’ advice is true, then serving a dish like her Marrakesh-blend squash soup or Spicy roasted cauliflower with pimenton should bring a slew of returning fans to your kitchen and table.

Joe Yonan Eat Your Vegetables

Looking for a preview of Washington Post editor Joe Yonan‘s cookbook, Eat Your Vegetables, before purchasing?

Try a sample recipe from the collection created from the former meat-loving Texan and food critic that utilizes the flavors from around the globe.

Yonan travels to Egypt via the spice section of the grocery store in his recipe for Roasted Carrot, Green Bean and Coconut Salad.

Dukkah is a mixture of spices and nuts, often blended with olive oil and used as a dip for breads.

In Yonan’s recipe, it makes a crunchy topping for the salad much like breadcrumbs, nuts or crumbled hard cheeses do.

Joe Yonan Eat Your Vegetables

Washington Post food editor Joe Yonan not only made the decision to adopt a plant-based diet, he decided to put his journalism skills to good use and write a cookbook on it.

Eat Your Vegetables debuted this month, and it represents part of a bigger move that Yonan labeled “bold” for a major food critic–to both eat vegetarian and make it the focus of your column that reaches thousands, if not millions of people.

Bethenny Frankel

Bethenny Frankel has written a new book, Skinnygirl Solutions, that is filled with the same healthy eating and diet advice she’s dispensed for years.

This is the fifth book for the best-selling author and like many of her previous tips, suggestions and recipes, is a solution derived from putting plant-based foods in the formula.

Vegetarians are less likely to suffer from obesity and its associated diseases, so it’s no surprise Frankel’s guide to getting skinny warrants swapping a real burger for a veggie one.
