With a growing number of vegetarians and vegans in the world, it naturally follows that the outpouring of vegan and nutritionally minded writers would continue to flow as well. Many of the newly minted Vegan Writers (though not necessarily newly vegan) like Jonathan Safran Foer, with his tome Eating Animals and Bob and Jenna Torres’ Vegan Freak collections as well as their undeniably hilarious radio program of the same name, provide readers and listeners with great bemusement and enchantment along with what is sometimes greatly needed in a non-vegetarian world: a friendly vegetarian voice.
One of the foremost vegetarian and vegan experts, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, is releasing a new cookbook titled, Color Me Vegan, in which the author provides a collection of fantastic animal-free and nutritionally dense recipes all colors of the rainbow. Beautiful plant-based fare can come to your family’s table at dinnertime (or at breakfast, lunch, or for desert) with one hundred and fifty new recipes. The fun behind this particular book is that the recipes are divided into sections in which meals are offered based on their color. Thematically, it seems a neat way of presenting a cookbook, but it is also nutritionally relevant. It has been scientifically proven that the brightest, most colorful foods on ones plate are often the healthiest and filled with the most phytonutrients.
The book will be released on October 28, 2010.
