The Truly Healthy Vegetarian Cookbook review & giveaway

Hello there friends!
What a month April has been! It began on a pretty smooth note but then got a bit rocky.  Between several deaths in the family/close friends, a bout of food poisoning, flare up of an injury, teaching more classes, some travel and helping friends deal with some major life changes, I have hardly had time to spend time at home, let along getting creative in the kitchen.  We have eating out a little more than typical for us, and there have been a few nights where it was cereal or toast for dinner.  Not the end of the world, but def not how we want to do very often for our desired eating plan.

Thankfully I was recently sent a preview of an AMAZING new cookbook, The Truly Healthy Vegetarian Cookbook by the one and only Liz Thompson from the I Heart Vegtables blog.

Liz and I have connected over the years through blogging and social media.  She is super sweet and always posts fantastic recipes.  When she told me about the cookbook I was so thrilled for her.  She has put her heart and soul into this book and it shows!

Over the past year my husband and I have gone more towards plant based eating.  I have always been more of a non-meat eater but it was a really big change for the Hubs! (And I am so proud of him for deciding to do that for his own health)!  When I showed him the cookbook he was so impressed by the beautiful pictures and could not wait to try some of the recipes.

I love how the cookbook is laid out.  The first chapter zeroes in on some nutrition information (SO vital in my opinion) as well as some basics about cooking.  I love that Liz is not assuming that everyone would know what to in the kitchen.  She really breaks information down in a way that anyone can understand it! I have been cooking for almost 30 years and I even learned a few things simply by reading the first chapter!

And the pictures! Oh they are oh so beautiful! The front cover is just the tip of the iceberg of the drool worthy photography scattered throughout the book!

The rest of the book is broken down into categories- basics, breakfasts (my FAV), snacks & sides, substantial salads, soups & stews, wraps, sandwiches & burgers, roasted & baked dinners, noodles, rice & pasta, and desserts.  The cookbook finishes off with several other categories of helpful information.  It is not just full of amazing recipes, but also information to keep you safe in the kitchen and truly healthy with nutrition information.  The cookbook is golden information and recipes all packed into one beautiful book!

A few of the recipes I am most excited about are the Brussels sprouts chips, Thai quinoa salad, pumpkin almond flour muffins, cauliflower-potato soup, black bean enchiladas, bell pepper nachos and chocolate avocado cookies! My mouth is already watering just thinking of thee recipes and more!

The cookbook comes out May 1st but you can pre-order from Amazon (and it is on sale right now)! And 1 lucky reader is going to win a free copy!

    Liz is awesome! I would love to win this but think I’ll be buying my own copy if I don’t. That cauliflower-potato soup sounds yummy.

    Thank you so much for sharing my cookbook!! And that’s exciting that your husband has been trying to eat more of a plant-based diet. I know it can feel like a big change, so hopefully, some of the recipes in the book can help! 🙂
