Need some help with your New Year’s resolutions? Try the 'Natural Vegan Kitchen'

How are your resolutions going? If you’re anything like the majority of the population, all the pledges you made for a healthier lifestyle in 2012 are a distant memory just a week or so into the New Year. But help is at hand from Christine Waltermyer and her fabulous book The Natural Vegan Kitchen.

Choc full of deliciousness, from breakfasts to desserts, Christine takes you by the hand and guides you through everything you need to know to put you on the road to natural cooking. And she knows what she’s talking about. Founder of the Natural Kitchen Cooking School in New Jersey, teacher of cooking classes for the Physicians Committee forResponsible Medicine Cancer Project, and co teacher (with Michio Kushi) at the Kripala Center for Yoga and Health in Mass., she brings her knowledge and understanding of whole food cooking to you in an easy to follow format that anyone can follow.

Every recipe has nutritional information for calorie counting, gluten free recipes are clearly marked and at the back of the book is a glossary in case you come across any foods that are new to you. Rounding out the book is a handy suppliers list and suggested further reading if you want to keep those healthy eating resolutions going a little longer. This book is a joy to own (my copy is already looking tatty – a good sign if you ask me), and is a great addition to my already heaving cookbook shelf. Buy it, you won’t be sorry!
