Fantastic news! Ms. Lindsay Nixon's NEW Cookbook is out!!! The EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE!!! Special RECIPE preview!!!

I literally just left a patient's hospital room where I was counselling him on the health potentials of a plant-based diet and came back to my office, only to hear the best news! 

I'm VERY excited to share that my FAVORITE chef, Lindsay Nixon, has just put out her NEW COOKBOOK:  THE EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE!!  I had already given the patient the information on her first cookbook (The Happy Herbivore Cookbook), but it looks like after I finish this post--I'm going to head back in there and give him the information on how to get THE EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE! as well! Not only is her food super healthy, but it also is delicious--this is why I share about her to my patients! If they cook her meals, I know they'll stick to the lifestyle changes I recommend!

Now you all know how I raved about Ms. Nixon's culinary and nutritional talents in my previous posts: here and here so I of course can't wait to get the new cookbook.  She has been kind enough to share one of the recipes from THE EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE! with me to provide all of you with a "taste" (so to speak) of what we can look forward to in this new effort!  Check the end of this post for the recipe for a fantastic looking Sweet Potato Dal!!  YUMMMMMMMM!!  And you can BUY her new cookbook, The Everyday Happy Herbivore, on Amazon by clicking HERE

A little background on Ms. Nixon from her impressive press kit:
"Lindsay S. Nixon is a rising star in the culinary world, praised for her ability to use everyday ingredients to create healthy, low fat recipes that taste just as delicious as they are nutritious. Lindsay's recipes have been featured in Vegetarian Times, Women's Health Magazine and on The Huffington Post. Lindsay is also a consulting chef at La Samanna, a luxury resort and four-star restaurant in the French West Indies. You can learn more about Lindsay and sample some of her recipes at

After vegan chef Lindsay S. Nixon wrapped up her popular cookbook The Happy Herbivore Cookbook last year, she went back to her kitchen in her new home of St. Maarten. Island living encouraged Nixon to come up with simpler fare, which led to a follow-up cookbook focusing on recipes that bring tasty back to quick-and-easy.

Now, in Nixon's much-anticipated follow-up cookbook, THE EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE!!  , readers will see, once again, that just because plant-based eating is optimal for health, it doesn't have to also be expensive or time-consuming.

THE EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE!!  includes more than 175 doable recipes--recipes that are so quick and easy, you could cook three healthy meals from scratch every day like Nixon does.

Each of Nixon's recipes are made with wholesome, easy-to-find, fresh ingredients and include no added fats. With additional notes indicating recipes that are ideal for preparing ahead of time and those you can whip up with just a few dollars, THE EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE!!   will be the must-have cookbook for anyone desiring a healthier, happier menu!"


Sweet Potato Dal |
serves 2

This soup is Dal-icious! It’s so flavorful you’ll want seconds. and thirds!

1 small sweet potato, skinned
1 small onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
red pepper flakes
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/4 tsp garam masala, plus extra
1 cup vegetable broth, plus extra
1/2 cup red lentils
4 cups spinach, or more
Dice sweet potato into small ½-inch cubes, and set aside. Line a medium pot with a thin layer of water and saute onions and garlic for a minute. Add a pinch or two red pepper flakes and continue to cook until all the water has cooked off. Add turmeric, ¼ tsp garam masala and stir to coat. Add 1 cup broth, uncooked lentils, and bring to a boil. Once boiling reduce to low, cover, and simmer for a few minutes, about 5. Add sweet potatoes, bring to a boil again and reduce to low and simmer, until lentils are fully cooked (they expand and the sauce thickens), about 5 minutes more. Check periodically to see if you need additional broth (I tend to add an extra ½ cup but it can vary). Once lentils are cooked and sweet potatoes are fork tender, taste, adding more garam masala as desired (I like to add another ¼ tsp but some blends are stronger than others). Add spinach, continuing to stir until spinach cooks down and softens. Add salt to taste and serve.
