about

Founded by Johns Hopkins University, the "Meatless Monday" campaign counts among its fans Michael Pollan, Sheryl Crow, and Paul McCartney. From Baltimore Public Schools to the city of Ghent, Belgium, the eat-less-meat buzz is spreading worldwide.

With reports about the ill effects of consuming too much meat--for us, and for the environment--The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook speaks directly to lifelong meat lovers who know it's time for a change but need an accessible and nonthreatening guide to wave them into the kitchen and get them started.

Written by a fellow meat-lover who can relate to the challenges of dietary change, The Meat Lover's Meatless Cookbook dishes up fifty-two tasty and satisfying meatless menus--one per week--that mirror the do-able, incremental approach recommended by environmental and medical communities.


A graduate of the Institute of Culinary Education, Seattle-based Kim O'Donnel blogs at True/Slant and chats on Culinate.com. She has written for the Washington Post, Real Simple, and Huffington Post.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid collection of meatless recipes that will inspire! Written specifically for carnivores looking to integrate more plant-based meals into their diets, this book celebrates dietary diversity and meat in moderation. The overall tone is warm and not in the least intimidating, the author guiding you through each recipe in an encouraging manner. The recipes are substantial enough to satisfy meat eaters, the book designed as a collection of 52 menus (one for each week of the year) based on seasonal eating. In my opinion the lack of photographs is unfortunate, as I prefer visual inspiration when tackling new frontiers with my palate. It’s a comfort thing; wanting photographic reassurances that I’m doing it ‘right’.

Editorial Reviews

“With Kim’s recipes, meatless is scrumptious…she delivers [recipes] with a welcome sense of humour while demystifying vegetarian cooking…Author Kim O’Donnel has a light hearted, honest approach for the meat alternative cooking newbie rather than preaching to a choir of the converted, though either reader will find her book a welcome garnish to their culinary repertoire, small or large as it may be.” Seattle Weekly’s “Cooking the Books” blog, 11/10/10“Full of recipes for hearty and flavorful meals that give you the satisfying texture and complex layers of flavors that are missing from many vegetarian dishes that just omit the meat…[The] convivial tone makes it feel like Kim is in the kitchen with you, sharing her favorite tips and tricks.” Treehugger.com, 11/9/10“This is an excellent book for people who are trying to eat less meat in their diet, especially those who may be having a hard time achieving that goal. It's also a wonderful book for people who are already vegetarian, with lots of variety.” TheHealthyVoyager.com, 11/8/10
