New Happy Herbivore Cookbook

Well, Lindsay Nixon, author and creator of the Happy Herbivore is getting ready to release her fourth book:  Happy Herbivore Light & Lean: Over 150 Low-Calorie Recipes with Workout Plans for Looking and Feeling Great.

According to Amazon:

With easy, no-fuss recipes, the bestselling Happy Herbivore cookbooks show how easy, affordable, and delicious eating healthy can be. Now, in her latest cookbook, Happy Herbivore chef Lindsay S. Nixon provides recipes that put a special emphasis on weight-loss and a set of exercises that, like her recipes, are quick, easy, and produce great results.

Like all Happy Herbivore cookbooks, Happy Herbivore Light & Lean contains filling, flavorful, plant-based recipes that take 30 minutes or less to prepare. But this time, Nixon takes healthy to an all-new level, with low-calorie, satisfying meals that will help you achieve your weight-loss goals—and without deprivation.

True to its title, Happy Herbivore Light & Lean also includes “recipes” for your body with basic workouts, plus tips and tricks that will inspire you to move more for a trimmer, more-toned you. As always, Happy Herbivore Light & Lean recipes are free from oils, processed foods, and diet chemicals such as artificial sweeteners.

Happy Herbivore Light & Lean keeps it healthy, keeps it simple, and keeps it delicious.

In the meantime, I had the chance to ask Lindsay Nixon a few questions about her upcoming cookbook:

Okay, this is your 4th cookbook, right?  What made you decide to write this one?

I was contractually obligated 😉

Though in all fairness I signed up for a total of 6 books freely. I had (still have) a lot of ideas. I’m one of those people who likes a challenge… a goal to work toward. My fans and supporters are also incredibly motivating. Everything I do, I do for them.

How is it different from your last four cookbooks?

Every book is different—they each have their own theme (and their own personality). This book focuses on lower calorie recipes and incorporates exercise. It’s a whole body cookbook. I love it!

How do you manage to come up with some many unique and yummy recipes?

I treat it like a job. When I’m writing a book I spend 8-10 hours in the kitchen every day trying new things. I’ll often grab an ingredient, say a red pepper, and think, “okay… what can I do with this?”

Is there a 5th cookbook in the works?

Yep. I’m writing it now 🙂
