Take It From Me: Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

May 1, 2012

Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters Review & GIVEAWAY (closed)

I have been dying to share my review for the Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters cookbook I received!  It's not everyday that you come across a cookbook with so many great recipes that are easy to make and healthy for you!  Even though I am not a vegetarian, I have been trying so hard this year to get myself and my family on a healthier track.  Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters is perfect for anyone wanting to live a healthy lifestyle--no matter what their circumstance may be!
I have to first tell you that I actually have some personal connections to this particular cookbook.  I met the author of Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters, Miriam Barton, a few years back in Utah when we became neighbors.  I had reservations about the vegetarian lifestyle, but Miriam quickly shot down any previous notions I had as she explained her medical struggles with a rare blood disorder and her ambitions to create a healthier lifestyle and boost her immune system.  However, I was COMPLETELY sold on good tasting vegetarian food.  I am a food lover and thought it was impossible to feel completely satisfied with a meal without meat.  That all changed as time after time, I personally got to experience Miriam's cooking and her delicious, filling, nutritious meals!  You could say I was almost like a guinea pig for some of her recipes (which I was more than happy to do!).  I was the perfect candidate because of my lack of knowledge and experience with vegetarian cooking.
Now, with her Meatless Meals for Meat Eaters cookbook in tow, even though I have now moved states, I will always have her great influences.  Honestly, the cookbook is wonderful!  I still have yet to make every recipe in it, but each one I try is a pleasant surprise and often goes on the "let's make this again" list for my family.  Belive it or not, I look forward to the meals days when I don't have to touch the gross raw meats and watch in awe as I see a wide spread of ingredients transform into a beautiful feast!  And, just so you have a little preview as what is in this book, here are some of my favorite recipes I've made so far: Minestrone Soup, Vegetarian Chili, Baked Macaroni and Cheese, Broccoli Cheddar Quiche, Spinach and Ricotta Stuffed Shells, Garden Fajitas, Cream Cheese Wontons, Seven Vegetable Coconut Curry, all of the awesome salads, oh and the smoothies too! (I told you this book was amazing!)

  5. I would love to win this! I've been trying to cook meatless for about a year now (after I saw the movie Forks Over Knives) and it is often hard to find yummy recipes, this book looks like it contains a lot of those! I'd like to try the mushroom quesadillas that I saw on her blog.

  25. I would love to try the vegetable enchiladas. I LOVE enchiladas and have been wondering how to make them with less meat. The smoothies also look really good. I am a little worried about all the simple carbs, though, that are in some of the dishes. I'm sensitive to sugars and simple carbs, especially when I'm pregnant. Looking forward to trying out all the bean recipes, as well.
