New Cookbook is Truly Healthy for All Diets

Local Certified Health Coach, Elizabeth Thomson, has written The Truly Healthy Vegetarian Cookbook, containing more than 100 easy and delicious vegetarian recipes that are actually healthy. The cookbook includes flexible recipe modifications for a variety of diets, such as dairy-free, nut-free, gluten-free, vegan and more.

      Thomson didn’t always follow the healthy vegetarian lifestyle that she espouses today. Like many Americans, Thomson once believed that going meatless was healthy enough. Without much cooking experience, she relied on convenience meals like mac n’ cheese, French fries and pizza—all of which can be vegetarian, but not very nutritious.

      The voice of the popular blog I Heart Vegetables has reformed her unhealthy eating habits and with The Truly Healthy Vegetarian Cookbook, helps readers do the same. With wholesome vegetarian recipes that offer variety and simplicity, this vegetarian cookbook will prove that going beyond pasta, white rice and meat substitutes is easier and more delicious than we thought.
