Description: Do you VB6? Since Mark Bittman published his groundbreaking diet, more and more health-conscious cooks have adopted the VB6 way of eating and are reaping the benefits of vegetable-based meals and snacks. Now he makes it easier than ever, with hundreds of new recipes designed to help you eat vegan before 6:00 p.m. -- and make VB6 your permanent style of eating.
Whether you call it flexitarian, part-time veganism, or vegetable-centric, the plant-based, real-food approach to eating introduced in Bittman's New York Times bestselling book VB6 has helped countless people regain their good health, control their weight, and forge a smarter, more ethical relationship with food. VB6 does away with the hard and fast rules, the calorie-counting, and the portion control of conventional diets; it's a regimen that is designed to be easy to adopt and stick to for a lifetime.
When Bittman committed to a vegan before 6:00 p.m. diet, he quickly realized that everything about it became easier if he cooked his own meals at home. In The VB6 Cookbook he makes this proposition more convenient than you could imagine. Drawing on a varied and enticing pantry of vegan staples strategically punctuated with "treat" foods (including meat and other animal products), he has created a versatile repertoire of recipes that make following his plan simple, satisfying, and sustainable.
Breakfasts, the most challenging meal of the day for some vegans, are well represented here, with a full range of hot cereals, whirl-and-go dairy-free smoothies, toast toppers, and brunch-worthy entrees. Lunches include hearty soups, sandwiches, beans, grains, and pastas to pack along wherever the day takes you, and more than a dozen snack recipes provide the perfect afternoon pick-me-up to banish the vending-machine cravings that can undo a day of eating well. Dinners are flexitarian, focusing on vegetable-forward meals that are augmented by a range of animal products for fullest flavor, satisfaction, and nutrient density. A chapter devoted entirely to "building blocks" -- make-ahead components you mix and match -- ensures that a flavorful and healthy meal is never more than a few minutes away.
If you've thought of trying a vegan diet but worry it's too monotonous or unfamiliar, or simply don't want to give up foods you love to eat, Bittman's vegan and flexitarian recipes will help you cook your way to a new, varied, and quite simply better way of eating you can really commit to...for life.
