Glow from the inside out with fabulous vegan recipes from the creator of the award-winning blog  Oh She Glows

 

 

A self-trained chef and food photographer, Angela Liddon has spent years perfecting the art of plant-based cooking, creating inventive and delicious recipes that have brought her devoted fans from all over the world. After struggling for a decade with an eating disorder, Angela vowed to change her diet - and her life - once and for all. She traded the low-calorie, processed food she'd been living on for whole, nutrient-packed vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, and more. The result? Her energy soared, she healed her relationship with food, and she got her glow back, both inside and out. Eager to share her realization that the food we put into our bodies has a huge impact on how we look and feel each day, Angela started a blog, Oh She Glows , which is now an internet sensation and one of the most popular vegan recipe blogs on the web.

 

This is Angela's long-awaited debut cookbook, with a treasure trove of more than a hundred mouth-watering, wholesome recipes - from revamped classics that even meat-eaters will love, to fresh and inventive dishes - all packed with flavor. From rich and hearty entrees like the Crowd Pleasing Tex Mex Casserole and 15-Minute Creamy Avocado Pasta to decadent desserts such as Chilled Chocolate Espresso Torte with Hazelnut Crust and Angela's famous Glo Bakery Glo Bars, there is something for everyone. The Oh She Glows Cookbook also includes recipes free of common food allergens - with more than ninety gluten-free recipes - and many recipes free of soy, nuts, sugar, and grains, too!

 

Whether you are a vegan, "vegan-curious," or you simply want to eat delicious food that just happens to be healthy, this cookbook is a must-have for anyone who longs to eat well, feel great, and simply glow!

If I were to rate just the end result, I would give this book 5 stars. The recipes were very tasty, however, I found the instructions could have been more succinct and better laid out. I also wasn't a huge fan of the lengthy stories before each recipe. I understand that she is a blogger first, but the stories could have been shortened. I'm glad to see the second book is better laid out in both these regards.

Hands down the best cookbook I have. This is my go to cookbook when I need a healthy, delicious recipe to satisfy everyone. I can't wait for her second book to come out!

I make the Green Monster Smoothie everyday for breakfast. Never get sick of it!

This is a really fun, beautifully constructed book full of colourful photographs and delicious recipes. The recipes are accessible (i.e. don't require exotic ingredients) and are appealing to every taste, vegan or not. I also tried some of the recipes and my husband and I both liked them...and he's usually a meat and potatoes kind of guy. The sweet potatoes in the enchiladas recipe really look like pieces of chicken!

I'm not a vegetarian, but I quite enjoyed this book. I made half a dozen of the recipes, and found several of them were really good, including the tex-mex casserole, the lentil cauliflower soup, and the curried vegetables.
It would be helpful if there was nutritional information included with each of the recipes (calories, protein, fat, etc).

Torontonian Angela Liddon's healthy, inspirational, vegan blog, "Oh She Glows" has become overwhelmingly popular and so successful that Avery Publishing asked Liddon to release a cookbook. In said book, the author includes over 100 wholesome, plant-based recipes and over 25 updates on reader favorites from the blog. The cookbook also contains many allergy-friendly recipes: over 90 gluten-free ones and many free of soy, nuts and sugar. Liddon packs her meals with veggies, fruit, whole grains, beans, legumes, nuts and seeds and uses neither artificial substitutes nor processed imitation products, setting her book apart from many other vegan cookbooks. Along with the delectable recipes, Liddon herself has provided the stunning, full-colour photos, one for each recipe.

From “Life-Affirming Warm Nacho Dip” to “Luxurious Tomato-Basil Pasta,” “Marinated Balsamic, Maple and Garlic Tempeh” and even “Pumpkin-Maple Pie with Baked Oat Crust,” Most recipes prove easy to tackle and can be adjusted based on personal preferences.

Perhaps the back cover best summarizes the "Oh She Glows Cookbook": "this cookbook is a must-have for anyone who longs to eat well, feel great, and simply glow!
