Appetite for Reduction is a low fat vegan cookbook written by bestselling author and vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz. She says the recipes in the vegan cookbook were created after she was diagnosed with PCOS and realized she needed to change her diet. Those health-promoting changes included reducing her intake of fat and emphasizing more whole food based meals.
Moskowitz asserts that healthy cooking doesn’t have to mean deprivation and the 125 vegan recipes included in the book are designed to taste great and trim the waistline. They were also created with the busy weeknight chef in mind, with most of the recipes ready in under 30 minutes.
All of the recipes in this cookbook are vegan, low in fat and high in fiber. Whole foods form the basis of the recipes so foods such as vegetables, fruits, whole grains and legumes are emphasized.
Each recipe contains 200 to 400 calories per serving but because the meals are high in fiber and volume the portion sizes are satisfying. The vegan recipes include nutritional information, which makes it easy for meal planning if you are keeping track of your caloric intake.
Many of the vegan recipes take less than thirty minutes to prepare and the ones that don’t will give you plenty of downtime so that you can be involved in other tasks while your meal is cooking. There are also options for dieters with food allergies and intolerances to foods such as wheat, gluten and soy.
The vegan recipes are divided into several chapters:
Fruit, vegetables, chickpeas, black beans, lentils, edamame, tofu, tempeh, quinoa, cous cous, pasta, noodles, polenta, brown rice, almonds, peanuts, avocado, sunflower sprouts, toasted sesame oil, soy sauce, balsamic vinegar, mustard, agave syrup, herbs and spices.
