Recommendations? Vegetarian Cook Book with Nutrition Information?
My friend is graduating from college with a degree in nutrition. I wanted to get her a great vegetarian cookbook. I had a few in mind, but it seems she wants something that has the nutrition information printed next to the recipe. Does anybody have any recommendations?
Non-veg cookbooks are good too, as long as they aren't too meat-centric.
Diana Shaw's "The Essential Vegetarian Cookbook" has nutritional info for each recipe, along with a great index of fruits, vegetables, and staple products listed with their nutritional content and methods for prepping and cooking. I'm a part-time vegetarian but this cookbook is a staple in my kitchen.
The Romantic Vegetarian by Judith Sharlin,, R.D.
Yummy recipes, not low calorie, for special occasions. I believe the nutritional breakdown is in the back of the book. Lovingly calculated by hand in 1984—before all the nutritional tools on the Internet.
Thank you for these suggestions. I went through so many beautiful cookbooks at the bookstore, and none of them had nutritional information. The only ones that did were cookbooks for disease-related diets and weight-loss. I thought maybe I would have to give up on getting one. The bookstore guy actually handed me a cookbook for IBS. I was thinking...are you crazy? That would be an awesome graduation present to give, especially since the graduate does not suffer--as far as I know--from Irritable Bowell Syndrome. Maybe he didn't know what "IBS" stands for?
I'll look up all these books online! If you have any more suggestions, I would love to hear them.
