Vegan 101: Eating Vegan and Low Fat

If you’ve been reading my blog for anytime at all you have probably figured something out. I’m a high-fat vegan. Yep, I am.  My good friend Lindsay, you know her as The Happy Herbivore, is not and let me tell you, she teases me about my high fat ways!  I bought Lindsay’s first cookbook, The Happy Herbivore Cookbook (and reviewed it), because, though I loves me some fat, I’m also pretty aware of the needs of my changing 40+ year old body. Moderation just might be key.

Lindsay’s recipes are accessible and delicious.  It was imperative for me to include her in the Vegan 101 series but I knew she was deep into writing and creating recipes for her second cookbook, Happy Herbivore Every Day.  So imagine my delight when she immediately said yes! I am so honored that Lindsay is offering you, and me, a glimpse into eating a lower-fat vegan diet.


Lindsay S. Nixon is a rising star in the culinary world, praised for her ability to use everyday ingredients to create healthy, low fat recipes that taste just as delicious as they are nutritious. Lindsay’s recipes have been featured in Vegetarian Times, Women’s Health Magazine and on The Huffington Post. Lindsay is also a consulting chef at La Samanna, a luxury resort and four-star restaurant in the French West Indies. You can learn more about Lindsay and sample some of her recipes at
