From the Publisher
While she's an actress with a PhD in neuroscience, at the end of the day Mayim Bialik is a mom, one who knows what it's like to be a busy parent with little time to spend in the kitchen. She shares the concerns of parents everywhere: when it comes to nutrition and feeding your family, you want healthy meals, but also food that everyonekids and parentscan enjoy, and a balanced lifestyle that's inexpensive and fuss-free. Not only does Mayim's Vegan Table
share more than 100 easy plant-based recipes for dishes that are as good to eat as they are good for you, but Mayim has also teamed up with pediatrician Jay Gordon to offer:
- Basic nutritional information about a plant-based diet
- The real deal on raising kids on a plant-based diet (myths and misperceptions, debunked)
- Vegan family essentials (including a list of what to always keep in the pantry)
- Tips and strategies for easy meal planning and healthy eating out
And, of course, the food: you'll find recipes for Mayim's favorite breakfasts, snacks, lunches, dinners, and desserts, including kid-approved meals like build-your-own tacos and mac n cheez, Mediterranean and Asian-inspired salads that parents will love, comfort-food classics like kugel and matzoh ball soup, and many more.
