Vegan Reset: The 28-Day Plan to Kickstart Your Healthy Lifestyle by Kim-Julie Hansen, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, US $24.99, Pp 304, September 2018, ISBN 978-1328454034

 

We are all looking for something new to eat. We want to eat something delicious – and healthy, if possible. Many of us have gone vegan but are looking for new and healthier vegan recipes. If you think you are one of such people, you need not go any further than Vegan Reset. Kim-Julie Hansen wrote this with people like you in mind. Kim-Julie Hansen says that Vegan Reset is about abundance, not restrictions. It’s about eating a large variety of fruits, vegetables, starches, legumes, herbs, nuts, seeds and spices that will give you the nutrients and energy you need. Kim-Julie Hansen gives you filling and nutrient-dense meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, plus snacks so you stay satisfied all day long. She says that it’s important to make sure you eat enough, which can be challenging if you’re used to restricting your portion sizes. The reason is that while many animal products are high in calorie and low in volume, plants tend to be the opposite — high in water content and volume but lower in calories — so you can eat more. It’s about giving your body what it needs and eating for your own well-being, not calorie counting. Some people, particularly those who new to vegan living, may find some recipes not palatable. Kim-Julie Hansen advises them to keep an open mind. She says that our taste buds sometimes need ten to fifteen days to get used to new tastes, so it may take a little time for you to adapt. Be patient and kind to yourself with yourself during the process. This good advice is probably good for all types of recipes – and not restricted to this cookbook only. The nutrient-filled delicious recipes include ‘Rasberry-Peanut Butter Shake’ for breakfast, ‘Cashew & Avocado Sandwich’ for lunch, ‘Rice Noodles with Veggies & Peanut Sauce’ for dinner. If you want a hot drink, you have many options such as ‘Turmeric Golden Milk.’ There are also many recipes for ice creams, milkshakes, dressings, dips & sauces and many more. There are a few vegan primers that are more welcoming and accessible. Whether you are already a vegetarian or are planning to switch over to a plant-based healthy diet – or simply eating a few more vegetarian meals – Vegan Reset will give you all of the inspiration you need. The book is beautiful with stunning photos with each recipe.

She is the popular blogger behind the brands Brussels Vegan (www.brusselsvegan.com), Best of Vegan (@bestofvegan), and Vegan Reset (www.veganreset.com). She became an ethical vegan in 2011 and, in 2013, started sharing her passion online to show people how easy it can be to adopt a vegan lifestyle. Originally from Brussels, Belgium, she now lives in New York City.
