Recipes for regular people who love great food by "a humorist and cookbook author whose recipes really work." To create her very best recipes for Beat This!, a cult favorite and a hilarious book full of seriously delicious recipes, Ann’s formula was simple: "Double the chocolate and add bacon." But when she decided to go vegan, what in the world was she going to put in her pound cake—buttons? For a while, her kitchen resembled a molecular gastronomy lab. After a hellish incident with seitan, she made a decision: No more foods that made her hungry for her former life. No recipe would make the cut in her new life unless her husband liked it enough to beg for second helpings. More than 100 Hodgman-family-tested recipes later, Vegan Food for the Rest of Us was born, full of brilliantly original culinary discoveries, honest and funny writing, and yes, the very, very best recipes.
For those who practice veganism--eating neither meat nor other animal products, such as fish, milk and milk products, eggs, and honey--here is a simple, realistic cook- and recipe dessert book for busy parents, those new to a vegan diet, people with egg or dairy allergies, folks watching their cholesterol, and traditional foodies who would consider going vegan if only it weren’t so intimidating. Kyle Domer (aka Vegan Vegrant) says: "This is a party on paper! These recipes take the hassle out of guilt-free dessert decadence." Reginald Beck (Fearless Bread) states: "It lives up to its title by providing REAL dessert classics with a vegan attitude. Maltese and Wright set the standard for vegan dessert recipes, from their heavenly spice cake to their decadent peanut butter S’mores cheesecake." Victor J. Banis (The Pot Thickens) adds: "These two published authors prove themselves as adept with pots as they are with plots. Here, they conjure my favorite course—dessert—with mouth-watering vegan panache." Well-known author A.B. Gayle notes: "GET-REAL VEGAN DESSERTS isn’t just for vegans but for friends and relatives of vegans who hesitate to invite, not knowing what to feed. Apart from its great recipes, the book provides invaluable information on acceptable ingredients and how to access them." Cookbook writer Bonnie Clark says: "I never dreamed there could be such a variety of decadent and delicious vegan desserts as offered up by Wright and Maltese by way of these mouth-watering recipes that so shamelessly seduce even a die-hard meat-eater like me!"

Author: Liana Krissoff
With recent nationwide health initiatives, we all know that vegetables need to be the main focus of our diet. The number of vegetarians and vegans in the United States is growing every year, and, even for the omnivorous, cooking and eating more vegetables is the new normal. Vegetarian for a New Generation celebrates modern-day vegetable cookery with dishes that are fresh, uncomplicated, flavor-packed, and, as it happens, entirely gluten free. Author Liana Krissoff draws on global food traditions, offering new takes on classics like caponata, lesser-known creations like poha (a breakfast rice and vegetable dish) and shrubs (drinking vinegars), and more contemporary ideas like grilled collards, roasted shallot salad, and carrot marmalade. With 175 delicious recipes, Vegetarian for a New Generation makes eating more vegetables a pleasure.

This classic cookbook offers more than an authentic cuisine - it proffers a way of life based on compassion for all living things. For veganism is grounded in the simple truth that primary food - fresh fruit and vegetables, grains, seeds, nuts, pulses and so on - is not only healthier, but ecologically, ethically and spiritually superior to the mass-produced fodder of agri-business and factory farming. But gourmets will also find delights here among over 200 recipes ranging from the everyday to the celebratory. For this updated edition, Gordon Baskerville and Alan Wakeman have conjured up more than a dozen new recipes, improved some of the original ones and thoroughly revised and updated the information sections.
Attempts by people to enact their political beliefs in their daily lives have become commonplace in contemporary US culture, in spheres ranging from shopping habits to romantic attachments. This groundbreaking book examines how collective social movements have cultivated individual practices of "lifestyle politics" as part of their strategies of resistance, and the tensions they must navigate in doing so. Drawing on feminism and other movements that claim that “the personal is political,” the book explores how radical anarchist activists position their own lifestyles within projects of resistance. Various lifestyle practices, from consumption to personal style to sexual relationships, are studied to address how identity and cultural practices can be used as tools of political dissent. An accessible and provocative text, Lifestyle Politics and Radical Activism blends theory with empirical materials to highlight issues that are important not only to anarchists, but also to anyone struggling for social change. This unique analysis will contribute to the development of anarchist theory and practice and will appeal to anyone interested in political activism and social movements.
The book is a memoir of how a skeptical, fast-talking New Yorker became Thich Nhat Hanh's editor, turned forty, realized she was aging, and slowly and reluctantly started to absorb mindfulness practice and grow up. Scenes with Thich Nhat Hanh and the author’s two vividly exuberant older parents, illustrate how the author adapts mindfulness techniques for the busyness of her life, without losing her edge. With honest and vivid stories about dealing with difficult relationships with family members, death, illness, vanity, exhaustion, and creating a safety net of joy, the author explores and offers guidance for three key mindfulness practices: Knowing When You're Available and When You're Not; Full-Attachment Living; and Interbeing (Other People are Not a Hobby). This book is designed for adults who are new to mindfulness practice, Buddhism, curious skeptics, people familiar with the practice who want a personal story, and those interested in memoir.
Despite the Western diet high in meat and dairy products, much of the rest of the world has traditionally followed a primarily or entirely vegetarian diet. Tragically, there has been a dramatic transition in the latter as world meat production has increased about 10 times the world population growth rate in just a few decades. I have witnessed the transition to a diet high in animal products in places as beautiful as Micronesia and sub-Saharan Africa, where diseases such as diabetes and heart disease have just begun to rear their ugly heads. This grave trend also multiplies the devastating consequences for the environment worldwide and for the countless billions of animals killed each year for food-10 billion land animals and 10 billion sea animals in the United States alone. Many of us wonder what steps we can take to make a difference in the world. Here, the answer is simple. Following a vegan diet is the first and foremost step to improve the condition of the environment, human health, and the lives of animals. Around the World Vegan Style tells you how and why. Hope Ferdowsian, M.D., M.P.H. In Around the World Vegan Style, Nancy Robinson unites all people of the globe through a single common bond- the love of delicious food!

The journey to worldwide taste delights starts here! Michael Klaper, M.D. Author: Vegan Nutrition: Pure and Simple Nancy Robinson's cookbook could not come at a better time. The whole world is beginning to realize that animal agriculture-a major source of water pollution and deforestation-is one of the biggest culprits in global warming. The 2007 United Nations report shows that farmed animals are a top contributor to today's serious environmental problems, including greenhouse gases. The global increase in meat consumption also causes rates of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and other diet-related illnesses to soar. If we're going to reverse the damage we've done to our health and the environment, we have to begin now. Around the World Vegan Style is a step in that direction. Patrice Green, M.D., J.D. Assistant Professor, University of Maryland School of Medicine Faculty Member, Union Memorial Hospital Internal Medicine Fellow, American College of Legal Medicine There is just food and the land to grow that food. If we can all just realize this simple fact for one moment, and stop fighting over the land that holds the roots that support the tree that bears the fruit that feeds the child, then maybe, just maybe...peace. Around the World Vegan Style is more than a cookbook. Nancy Robinson shares how the vegan lifestyle embraces all facets of just food for all life. George Eisman, Registered Dietition, Teacher, and Clinician Author, The Most Noble Diet I'm delighted to recommend Around the World Vegan Style. Nancy Robinson's cooking is out of this world.
