Description
Robin Quivers's New York Times–bestselling vegan cookbook, filled with more than ninety recipes Known for her levelheaded, deadpan comebacks to Howard Stern's often outrageous banter, Robin Quivers is a force of nature. Yet few people know about her struggles with food—especially the high-fat, high-sugar, high-cholesterol, highly addictive foods that doomed many of her relatives to obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Sick and tired of being sick and tired, she knew it was time to stop her slow slide into bad health. Quivers took a stand in her personal nutrition battle and emerged victorious thanks to a plant-based diet. On her sometimes rocky, though endearingly hysterical, path to newfound health, Quivers discovered the power of the produce aisle in changing her body and her mindset. By filling up on soul-quenching, cell-loving vegetables instead of damaging animal products and processed foods, Quivers left behind the injuries, aches, and pains that had plagued her for twenty years. Charting her inspiring road to wellness, The Vegucation of Robin describes her transformation inside and out, and, including ninety of her favorite vegan recipes, she encourages readers to join her in putting their health first. With her signature humor and wit, Quivers builds an undeniable case that the key to living the life you've always wanted lies not with your doctor but in your refrigerator. Putting a new face on the pro-veggie movement, Quivers will dazzle readers who want to look good, feel good, and have fun doing it.

      • content:

        April 1, 2013

        Radio personality Quivers, Howard Stern's longtime cohost, was a serial Master Cleanse detoxer before she adopted a vegan diet. Her routine was to cleanse for 21 days, eat whatever she wanted for a while, then return to the Master Cleanse detox. She eventually discovered that the solution to her health woes lay in adhering to a vegan lifestyle that made her feel great. While much of the first half of the book is anecdotal, Quivers details the health problems connected with consuming meat, processed foods, and sugar, and she includes a healthy dose of skepticism of physicians and prescription medication. Encouraging readers to start their "vegucation" with a detox followed by an all plant-based diet, she offers recipes in the latter half of the book that focus on vegetables, soups, salads, grains, and sweets. Unfortunately, recipes don't include nutrient analyses. VERDICT Conversational and funny, this book may inspire fans to try a juice fast or a vegan diet. The recipes feature fresh produce and aren't loaded with tofu or meat-substitute products, which may appeal to readers who might be turned off from veganism by unfamiliar ingredients.--Pauline Baughman, Multnomah Cty. Lib., Portland, OR
