"Color Me Vegan" by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau

Why eat color? That’s the cornerstone idea of this spectacular new book by Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, best-selling author of The Joy of Vegan Baking and The Vegan Table. A new study confirms that Americans are eating fewer vegetables than ever and as many as 50 percent of all Americans don’t eat a piece of fruit all day long. Why are we ignoring the advice of major health organizations, ancient wisdom, our moms and our own common sense? Colleen Patrick-Goudreau has a few ideas!

In COLOR ME VEGAN (Fair Winds Press, December 2010, $19.99, paperback with color photos),author and vegan extraordinaire Colleen Patrick-Goudreau brings an edible rainbow of plant-based cuisine to your kitchen table with 150 flavorful recipes designed to boost your health and perk up your palate.

With color as the guiding principle behind each section, Colleen shows vegetarians, vegans, and everyone in between exactly how phytonutrients—the most powerful, pigmented antioxidants on earth, found in everything from select fruits and vegetables, to grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds—can be expertly incorporated into your meals for the greatest nutritional punch. From the “Color Me Blue” chapter, for example, you’ll be treated to recipes such as:
Radicchio Fennel Salad with Caper Dressing
Chilled Blueberry Mango Soup
Lavender-Roasted Purple Onions
Eggplant with Dengaku (Sweet Miso) Sauce
Purple Plum Pie with Crumble Topping
From sensational starters and salads, to filling mains and sides, to crave-worthy desserts—in every color—the recipes in COLOR ME VEGAN are not just a feast for your stomach, but a feast for your eyes as well!

Maximize Your Nutrient Intake and Optimize Your Health by Eating Antioxidant-Rich, Fiber-Packed, Color-Intense Meals That Taste Great
