January VegCookbook: Appetite for Reduction

A big thanks to everyone who responded to my post on Have Fun, Do Good, VegCookbook Club 2012: Wanna Join?

Based on your comments, Facebook messages, emails, and tweets, your choice for our January VegCookbook is Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes by Isa Chandra Moskowitz!

I’ve created the VegCookbook Club for anyone who would like to eat less meat and animal products.

You can join for a variety of reasons:
• Environmental
• Animal rights
• Health
• A creative cooking challenge
• To be part of a cooking community
• To have fun!

How the VegCookbook Club works:
• Each month I’ll select a vegetarian, or vegan cookbook for us to cook from together.
• Each Meatless Monday I’ll post about recipes that I tried from the cookbook.
• In the comments of my post, you’ll share the recipes you made from that month’s cookbook, and let everyone know how they turned out. You can leave a comment, or a link to your own blog post.
• We’ll ask questions (e.g. What the heck is nutritional yeast?).
• We’ll add photos of what we made to the VegCookbook Flickr group.
• We’ll tweet about our VegCooking with the hashtag #vegcookbookclub
• On the last Meatless Monday of the month, I’ll do a round up post with some of your comments, blog posts, photos, and tweets, and announce the next month’s VegCookbook.

My hope is that the VegCookbook Club will:
• Be a fun and creative community
• Provide inspiration, support and motivation for us to eat less animal products
• Encourage us to cook more often for ourselves, our family, friends and community

If you have any questions, or suggestions, feel free to email me at britt AT brittbravo DOT com, or connect with me on Twitter at @BBravo or on Facebook.

Happy VegCooking!

  1. I would be grateful if folks could also post about whether the recipes are low in fat, which many, but not all, vegetarian recipes are. Thanks!

  2. Nice to see you here, Celeste! Because our January cookbook has the subtitle, 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes, this batch of recipes should all be low-fat.

  3. I just ordered the cookbook, Britt. Thanks for the live link to Amazon. And this will be really a wonderful way to connect to others who enjoy a meatless lifestyle. I’m very excited. Debra

  4. Happy New Year, Debra! So glad you’re going to be a part of this group!
