Meatless Monday Book Roundup

August 7th, 2017


Meatless Monday is always happy to provide new tips and recipes on going meat-free. But we’re also happy to give great chefs and experts the chance to share their recipes and opinions! This week, Meatless Monday is putting five authors in the spotlight with new books that will help to make vegetarian cooking even more delicious and easy.

Love Thy Legumes by Sonali Suratkar

Legumes are known to be a great source of protein for people who want to replace meat in their meals, but there are even more benefits to eating them. Nutritionist and Johns Hopkins graduate Sonali Suratkar is using her first cookbook to celebrate legumes and educate people on how they may improve blood sugar, assist in weight loss, and ease the digestive system. She also describes how to prepare dried legumes so people can make the switch from the canned and processed versions. With tons of recipes and beautiful pictures, Suratkar is sure to entice any reader curious about one of the healthiest plant-based food varieties!


28-Day Plant-Powered Health Reboot by Jessica Jones, MS, RD, CDE and Wendy Lopez, MS, RD

If you’re thinking about giving your diet an overhaul, then the 28-Day Planet-Powered Health Reboot might be the cookbook for you! Written by Registered Dieticians Jessica Jones and Wendy Lopez of the blog Food Heaven Made Easy, this new cookbook has four weeks of breakfasts, lunches, and dinners that are all purely plant-based. Made with health – and not dieting – in mind, Jones and Lopez outline a completely customizable menu of meals that put the focus on “rebooting” the body with balanced meals without animal proteins. They even have a few sweets!


Vegan: The Cookbook by Jean-Christian Jury

We love this cookbook by Master Chef Jean-Christian Jury so much that we’re giving it an encore! After a health scare, Jury was inspired to share what he learned during his recovery – how to change his diet to include more plant-based, healthy foods. As the owner of several restaurants around the world, Jury knows global cuisine better than most. Vegan: The Cookbook includes 450 vegan recipes from several different countries such as France, Italy, India, and Papua New Guinea. Read more about it in our feature article from May!


Bowls of Goodness: Vibrant Vegetarian Recipes Full of Nourishment by Nina Olsson

Available (in the US) September 2017

Food blogger Nina Olsson is already well-known for her popular blog Nourish Atelier. Earlier this year, she released Bowls of Goodness in her native UK and this September it will arrive on our side of the pond! The book is a celebration of simple, delicious, and undeniably healthy meals in bowls, all of which are vegetarian. In addition to giving bowls a boost, Bowls of Goodness acknowledges the history of bowls tracing back to our most ancient human ancestors. And what better food to put in bowls than the healthiest, prettiest produce and grains?
