Did you know there are more than 16 million people in the U.S. who are vegan or follow a mostly vegan lifestyle? If you’re part of this growing health-conscious movement-or even if you’re not but simply want to eat more plant-based meals-a new cookbook can help you create portable vegan recipes that are full of fresh flavors and easy on your wallet. Vegan On the Go: Fast, Easy, Affordable-Anytime, Anywhere by Jérome Eckmeier and Daniela Lais (DK Publishing) features recipes made with easy-to-find ingredients that are designed to go anyplace, including lunches, snacks, salads, main dishes, and desserts. Here’s a sample recipe to try: Chia and Almond Pizza. This unexpected combination (which is also gluten-free) was an instant hit at the Better Nutrition office.
