Happy Herbivore Light & Lean has a vast amount of low calorie plant-based recipes (over 150) that are simple and healthy, yet fulfilling and delightful. Even though all of the recipes are 350 calories or less, they’re satisfactory and flavorful, nonetheless! I like how the top page of each recipe indicates when the recipe is gluten-free, budget-friendly, soy-free, quick, and/or fat-free. Light & Lean follows the same path as the other Happy Herbivore cookbooks – all recipes take 30 minutes or less to prepare without oils, processed foods, or artificial ingredients. If you’re not familiar with some of the ingredients, such as liquid smoke, nutritional yeast, black salt, or tempeh; there is a “Glossary of Ingredients” in the back of the book that explains what those ingredients are, used for, and where you can buy them.
