Mark Reinfeld has amassed an amazingly informative book in Healing the Vegan Way. Anyone interested in a vegan lifestyle would benefit from this comprehensive book filled with insight, ideas, and, of course, recipes. The book opens with five chapters on various topics centered on healing. For example, the health benefits of raw whole foods and detailed meal plans. Part two contains 200 recipes in the typical recipe book categories like pantry basics, snacks, breakfast, salads, soups, main dishes, and desserts.
Pages often contain multiple recipes, text boxes with chef’s tips and tricks and an icon if the recipe is oil-free, gluten free, 95% raw, and/or a template recipe. A template recipe is a recipe that provides a basis for many variations. Recipes list yield, introductory paragraph, ingredients, and numbered steps. Variations, if any, are detailed at the end of the recipe, as well as, nutritional facts. There are a few color photos in the middle of the book and it closes with a detailed nutrient reference guide, additional resources and an index. Healing the Vegan Way is a must-read for anyone interested in a vegan diet. It provides ample information to be successful in one’s quest for optimal health and wellness that is focused on vegan eating. Although the pages are cluttered with too much information, at times, and would be better served with more color photos closer to the actual recipe, this is a worthwhile book to add to one’s healthy cooking library.
