Vegan Cookbook of the week…”Quick and Easy..”

Hello my beautiful blog family. How have you been this past week? I have been “Naturalee Happee”and I hope you have been just as happy.😊

This week’s cookbook is..

“Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food” by: #Alicia C. Simpson. If you read my first post on “the vegan cookbook of the week”, then you know what my “criterias” are for choosing a book to review.

This book has great photographs, but there are only a few and they are in the middle of the book. πŸ˜•This was disappointing for me because I need photos alongside of the recipe. Nevertheless, I still found this to be a good cookbook. If you are thinking of “transitioning” to more Vegan meals for your family to enjoy together, I would definitely suggest this book. Just this morning I made this one..

I substituted the all purpose flour for Flaxseed Meal and still enjoyed this recipe. The pancakes were light, fluffy, delicious, healthy, and best of all..VEGAN! 😊

This book is wonderfully written and Ms.Simpson has everything you can think of (Veganized). She has Smoothies, Breakfast & Soups, Main Courses, Side Dishes, Sauces & Dips, and Desserts! Looks good doesn’t it?

Hmmm. I might be making this one tonight! Lmbo! πŸ‘Œ

This book gets 4 stars out of 5.🌟🌟🌟🌟.

If you find this book, or own this book..share your favorite recipe down below. Tell us how YOUR family reacted to the switch, or if they didn’t notice, share that too! I can’t wait to hear from you!

I hope you enjoyed this review. I have a #Youtube video to make now. Subscribe, Rate, & Share. Until next week..Stay Happee and Stay Healthy! 😎

Book of the week…Vegetarian! 😦

Hello my beautiful blog family! Thank you for the follows and shares. This week I decided to go back. Why? A conversation I had with a co-worker yesterday made me decide to take it back to where I began. This week I chose this book..

“Total Health for you and your family The Vegetarian Way” is a book written by Virginia & Mark Messina, PhD. I purchased this book way back in 2000. It was old even then. Hmmm. I think I found it either at a bookstore, or at Goodwill.(Yes, I am an adult nerd) 😝

Now, I’m not promoting or doing a “review” of this book like I do my other picks. This book does NOT have beautiful photography or all of the “bells & whistles”. What it DOES have is wonderful information not only for you, but for your family, and for the children if you have any. It is a great book to have in your library. Here is a peek at the table of contents…

See what I mean? Every question you’ve ever had on why consuming meat is not the best thing for your digestive system, all answered right here! Don’t sleep on “old books”. Sometimes, they are better at having information that was presented and shut out way before you were born! Which is exactly why I prefer my books versus kindle. Not throwing shade on those devices, I just like to hold my book in my hands. 😁

I have a Vegetarian/Vegan playlist on youtube on transitioning from meat.(NaturaleeHappee on Youtube). I also have Vegetarian fun, quick recipes in the archives of this wordpress.

Oh, and don’t forget to check out these documentaries in your spare time…

Am I trying to “convert” you? No. I’m only sharing information that I encountered since 2000. If you feel a need to try a healthier lifestyle, the info is yours for the taking. If not, that’s ok too. I hope you enjoyed my pick of the week. Don’t forget to subscribe & share. Until next week…”Stay Happee, and Stay Healthy”. πŸ˜‰

Vegan cookbook of the week…Lindsay Nixon in..

Hello my beautiful blog family and fellow Goddesses! I hope you all had a wonderful week. Today is a truly beautiful sunny dayβ˜€, get out and enjoy it! 

This week my vegan cookbook pick is “Everyday Happy Herbivore” by Lindsay S. Nixon.

This book has BEAUTIFUL photography to go along with the recipes and you know I LOVE πŸ’œ photography! I even have a pin board on photography on my Pinterest. 😎

This book is also wonderfully written, has great low-fat recipes, and great seasonings. Sometimes I still “tweek” it with my own seasonings, but for the most part, the recipes are good “as is”.

So which recipe did I like the most? Actually, I liked too many to name out of this one book alone! This one was one I made recently…

I didn’t add the lemon juice to mine, but everything else was “on point”. It was GOOD!

My 5 stars! 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟. When you get this book, or if you already have it..feel free to share your favorite recipe down below! Tag me on Twitter & Instagram(EmpressLegacy). I can’t wait to see what  you make! 😁

Until next time, stay happee… Be Naturalee Happee! 🌷

Vegan Cookbook of the week…by Melisser Elliot

Hello my beautiful blog family! I hope everyone is well today. Thank you so much for reading, commenting, and sharing my blogs.

This week I chose this book to share with you.

“The Vegan Girl’s Guide To Life”, has got to be one of my FAVORITE books! πŸ‘ŒThe photography is awesome! (See my blog on what i look for to do a review). I also like the  feel of this book. I know it sounds strange, but whatever she used for the cover made it really soft. Seriously, for the first time in a review(and I’ve done tons on my youtube @NaturaleeHappee), I am encouraging you to  feel this book! Lol. 

Okay, so besides the feel of the book, I also loved the recipes! My very first recipe from this book was this one..

I LOVE πŸ’œ banana bread! As you can see from the picture, I “tweaked” it to my taste. I’m sure you will enjoy this too.

Aaaah, but this book is not like the rest! Not like the others at all. This book is an A-Z book! Yes! The recipes are only part  of the book.

I love this book because it helps readers transition  ALL aspects of their life into veganism. This lovely author showcases businesses in her book as well as bloggers! You can find everything you need in this one book from foods, to clothes, shoes, cosmetics, soaps, books, and more! 100% VEGAN!!! In the back of the book, everything is categorized for easy Google search.

I literally saw a “glow” on this book when I was first trying veganism! Well, ok. Maybe it was the sun from outside shining in the bookstore window, but still.. I loved it from day 1. 😁

If you make this recipe or purchase this book, TAG ME! If you already have this book, comment belowπŸ‘‡! I love to hear my subbies point of view on things.

I hope you enjoyed this post. Like, Follow, & Share. Until next time, stay Happee & stay healthy! 😎

Vegan cookbook Of The Week.

Vegan Yum Yum, written by Lauren Ulm. What are MY thoughts on this book?

Hello my beautiful blog family! How is everyone doing? Chime in because I really want to know. πŸ˜€ I am doing great myself. I’ve decided to “review” a vegan book a week. Congratulations.. you are now a part of this new weekly installment. Thank you for joining me. Thank you for liking, commenting, and sharing! You are awesome!

You might be thinking..ok.what is the criteria for her in choosing which book to review? Here it is…

1. It must be Vegan or Vegetarian ( preferably Vegan).

2.If it’s a cookbook, I MUST have enough pictures along with the recipe so that I can gauge whether or not what I prepare even remotely looks like it is correct!

3. The book must be good! Does it hold my attention? Is it interesting? Does it entice me to want to “try”?

4. The book or video does NOT have to be by someone known “worldwide”. I’ve seen some of the best things produced by the ” local” person or average Jane.

Now that you know what I look for, without further delay…Vegan Yum Yum!

#Vegan Yum Yum has ALL of the qualities that I look for in order to do a review. If any of you have been following me 3 or 4 years ago, or have read(in my archives here), then you remember that this book was used in my very first Vegan Thanksgiving. I made this side dish recipe…

The smudge on the bottom is proof that I have used this recipe for more than just Thanksgiving! Lmbo! 

The book in general has wonderful photography, clear instructions, and encourages me to at least ” try” something new before I place judgement. Kudos to Ms. Lauren! πŸ™ŒWell done!

My vote is a definite 5 stars.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Make sure you go check out this cookbook, ESPECIALLY if you’re like me and love to see pictures to help you out.(No offense, some people are just more visual).

If you get this book or already own this book, share your recipes and share YOUR thoughts. I’m sure we would love to hear other people’s point of view.

I hope you enjoyed not only my review, but this recipe I just shared above. Let me see how yours turns out. Tag me here, or on Twitter at Empress Legacy which is my business name.

Until next week. Be happy, be healthy! I am Naturalee Happee. πŸ˜€
