In keeping with Andrew's healthful outlook on life and wellness, Andrew's Healthy Veggies Made Delicious Cookbook offers a unique collection of natural, wholesome and delicious vegetable recipes, all of which have special meaning to Andrew, himself. 45 Easy-to-Follow Recipes.
As a result of a multitude of requests, and following the exceptionally positive response to our first cookbook (Andrew's Favorite Soups for Wellness and Weight-loss), Andrew and I have collaborated on a new cookbook designed to make it even easier for all of us to eat well. We answer the most common question we both receive: How can eating healthy be more enjoyable? This book responds by focusing on the foods that all of us know we should eat, but all of us consistently avoid eating because we never learned how to enjoy eating them. Today, I eat a diet rich in vegetables, but it was not always that way. Being raised in Paris, France came with its own set of traditional dietary challenges. Every meal seemed to come with abundance of bread, butter, potatoes and cream-based sauces. Clearly, I would have been better served by being raised in the South of France where the healthy Mediterranean diet has its roots, but we all inherit the diet of our upbringing. And in order to achieve my best health, I would need to overcome the traditional eating habits of a typically Parisian family. Ironically, I have now adopted a more Mediterranean (and Asian) style of eating where vegetables are prepared with healthy spices and herbs to replace the nonnutritious calories of a more Parisian (and American) traditional diet. It was not easy to leave behind those old Parisian ways, but once I learned how to prepare things differently, I not only enjoyed, but preferred the flavor and textures of the healthier foods I prepared. Plus I always would feel better after having eaten them. And once you try just a few of the recipes in this book, I am confident that you will feel the same way. Basically, my goal with this book is to help everyone discover what a pleasure it is both to prepare and eat extremely healthy vegetables like kale, collard greens, Swiss chard, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, asparagus and more. These are by far the healthiest of foods, but for most Americans (and even Parisians) only rarely consumed. As Andrew always reminds me, it is impossible to overstate the impact of what we eat (both good and bad) on the current and future state of our health. This easy-to-follow cookbook is intended to provide an opportunity to transform our lives by making foods that protect our health a delicious and normal part of our daily routine. Bon Appétit! Muriel

Received cookbook a couple of days ago and going thru recipes now. I have made 5 or 6 dishes and all have been outstanding! I give each dish a 10. Great taste and very nutritious. Can't wait to make other dishes. Even my husband is enjoying these. And, they don't take long at all so no standing in the kitchen for 2 hours! Love Muriel's talent. Keep up the great work.

Best veggie cookbook
Love this cookbook. Made almost all of the recipes, just excellent, easy to do, great to make as a big casserole, & keep in refrigerator all week! Some of the recipes were okay to freeze & take out for later. Love the pages, the spiral, all the little things that are so important to someone who loves to cook. This book makes it so much easier to stay on a healthy eating plan. Thank you!

Just received your beautiful book and love it. My daughter and her family are vegan and I eat mostly veggies and fruit and finding new, interesting ways to use them is difficult. The book is beautifully done and I can hardly wait to try the recipes. Having the pictures of the finished dishes is wonderful. Have just ordered your soup cookbook for myself and the bundle of both books for my daughter and can hardly wait until they come. May be ordering more for gifts later.
