Vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz shares her collection of plant-based and low-calorie meals that are full of flavor and totally satisfying.

This is not your mother's low-fat cookbook. It has no foolish tricks, no bizarre concoctions, no chemicals, no frozen fake anything! Appetite for Reduction means cooking with real food, for real life. (Skimpy portions need not apply.)

In Appetite for Reduction, bestselling author and vegan chef Isa Chandra Moskowitz shares 125 delectable, nutritionally-balanced recipes for the foods you crave--lasagna, tacos, barbecue, curries, stews, and much more--that's all:
  • Only 200 to 400 calories per serving
  • Plant-based and packed with nutrients
  • Low in saturated fat and sugar; high in fiber
  • Drop-dead delicious

You'll also find lots of gluten-free and soy-free options. The best part? Dinner can be on the table in less than 30 minutes. So ditch those diet shakes. Skip that lemonade cleanse. And fight for your right to eat something satisfying! Now you can look better, feel better, and have more energy while eating the food (and portions) you deserve.
