Vegan Pressure Cooking

Say goodbye to long cooking and preparation times. With a pressure cooker, you can cook filling, nutritious meals in under an hour and with little mess or cleanup. It's not only delicious, but easy too! With Vegan Pressure Cooking, you'll learn all of the ins and outs of pressure cooking--including why there's no need to be scared of trying something new! From choosing a pressure cooker that suits you best to understanding the ingredients that are perfect for pressure cooking - including beans, grains, hearty vegetables, and more.

Vegan for Her

Vegan for Her, a blueprint for optimal health and wellness at any age, will show you how to: lower your risk for breast cancer and heart disease; manage conditions like arthritis and migraines; diminish PMS and cramps; build strong bones for life; enhance fertility; make an easy transition to a vegan diet; and incorporate principles of both fashion and compassion into your home and wardrobe.

Here in Colorado it’s been hot, hot, hot and I have been enjoying a lot more smoothies – filled with fresh seasonal fruit and lots of ice –  in the morning to try to beat the heat. So I couldn’t have been more thrilled to receive a copy of my friend Tess Masters‘ new book The Blender Girl Smoothies a few weeks ago.

Blender Girl Smoothies

About the book:

The Blender Girl’s incredible, next-level recipes and tips not only make it easy to be healthy, but will change the way you think about smoothies. While blended beverages are all the rage, Tess Masters, author of The Blender Girl, is doing something wildly different in the space. Hailed as “taste sensations” by The Today Show (Australia), Tess takes smoothies to a whole new degree of blending.

The Blender Girl Smoothies has 100 innovative, delicious, and nutrient dense combinations that make eating fruits and vegetables accessible and fun. Using herbs, spices, greens, oils, and superfoods to create dimensional drinks, these combinations will take you on a flavor journey like any textured dish.

With three optional boosters to ramp up nutrition and/or flavor, Tess makes it easy to find your perfect blend. Tired of making the same boring smoothie every day or chugging experimental concoctions with your nose plugged? Suffer no more! After testing thousands of combinations, Tess has developed a set of strategies for making healthy smoothies that look gorgeous, taste amazing, and offer big nutritional bang-for-your-buck. She then shares her top smoothie tips as well as a comprehensive pantry of ingredients helping readers select and pair flavors to make their own amazing blends.

Each recipe has icons flagging health goals or dietary preferences with smoothies that are low-fat, low-carb, high protein, alkaline, anti-inflammatory, gluten-free, nut-free, vegan, paleo, unsweetened, great for weight loss, detox, and more. Whether you want something light and fruity, clean and green, exotic, or desserty, this incredible collection has something that will rock your world. Try the Happy Hydration, Hangover Helper, Rosemary Melonade, Mystical Mango, Green Mojito, Red Velvet Cake, Sleep Spell, and Tastes-Like-Ice-Cream Kale.

With the author and publisher’s permission, I’m sharing this delightfully refreshing recipe for Rosemary Melonade. Enjoy!
