Happy Herbivore Light & Lean

• •

With easy, no-fuss recipes, the bestselling Happy Herbivore cookbooks show how easy, affordable, and delicious eating healthy can be. Now, in her latest cookbook, Happy Herbivore chef Lindsay S. Nixon provides recipes that put a special emphasis on weight-loss and a set of exercises that, like her recipes, are quick, easy, and produce great results.

Like all Happy Herbivore cookbooks, Happy Herbivore Light & Lean contains filling, flavorful, plant-based recipes that take 30 minutes or less to prepare. But this time, Nixon takes healthy to an all-new level, with low-calorie, satisfying meals that will help you achieve your weight-loss goals—and without deprivation.

True to its title, Happy Herbivore Light & Lean also includes “recipes” for your body with basic workouts, plus tips and tricks that will inspire you to move more for a trimmer, more-toned you. As always, Happy Herbivore Light & Lean recipes are free from oils, processed foods, and diet chemicals such as artificial sweeteners.

Happy Herbivore Light & Lean keeps it healthy, keeps it simple, and keeps it delicious.


This is an absolute must-have cookbook, and I highly recommend it, for multiple reasons.

First, it’s gorgeous. The colors are beautiful, the photos are amazing, even the paper is nice.

Second, I’ve found these recipes overall to be basically infallible. Though I clearly haven’t made all of the recipes in the cookbook, everyone I tried has come together nicely without a hitch.

Third, the concept is so useful, and the recipes really hold true: I can see every single one of the recipes fitting into my weeknight routine (and being a vast improvement). I also really appreciate the way the recipes are written in an easy, instructional style.

While I can’t say that I am a vegan, I have been trying to eat more plant-based meals, and this book had really helped due to the wealth of information in addition to the more than 100 recipes, and I think it’s a vital addition to any kitchen.
