Quick and Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Food

Just because you've adopted a vegan diet doesn't mean it is a healthy diet. If you've been vegging it up with plant-based junk food, you're not doing your health any favors. Try Alicia Simpson's Quick and Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Food to deliciously and

Just because you're following a vegan diet does not mean that the nutritional values of your meals has significantly improved. Just as with a non-veg diet, it is all too easy to get lured into a junk food trap where you're eating foods that are high in sugar, high in fat, high in calories, and low in nutrients. Though these nutritionally-devoid meals may satisfy your hunger for comfort food and temporarily curb your junk food cravings, they are not a long-term solution for your health nor your vegan diet. Alicia Simpson, author of Quick and Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Food, can certainly relate -- and she wants you to succeed in overhauling your diet so it benefits your health and she wants you to love the food you're eating.

Alicia Simpson is a master at vegan comfort food

Before her most recent vegan cookbook, Atlanta-based Simpson authored Quick and Easy Vegan Comfort Food and Quick and Easy Vegan Celebrations. She loves soul food that is crave-worthy but also conscience-friendly and good for you. If you want it all -- delicious, filling, cruelty-free, crave-curbing, and healthy -- the vegan expert has you covered. In Quick and Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Food, Simpson delivers 150 vegan recipes ranging from breakfast (Rise and Dine) to dinner (The Main Event) that spans across different cuisines. Get ready to dig into Baked Hush Puppies, Chik'n Pot Pie, Carolina BBQ Sammich, Kung Pao Tofu, Mexican Hot Cocoa and more!

Simpson doesn't just share her favorite low-cal vegan recipes, she provides nutritional information for each dish and lists daily menus that have 1,400 to 2,000 calories, making it easy for vegans to pick and choose the comfort food recipes that will best suit their diet and/or weight loss goals. And don't worry if you have a super sweet tooth -- Simpson has a Sinful Sweets chapter in her book that will weaken your knees with low-cal vegan desserts including Butter Pecan Ice Cream, Strawberry Shortcakes with Balsamic Syrup, Moon Dusted Donuts, and Ooey Gooeys.

The Quick and Easy Low-Cal Vegan Comfort Food cookbook also has a healthy vegan drinks section. We love sipping on this: Pumpkin Seed Milk.
