"While she's an actress with a PhD in neuroscience, at the end of the day Mayim Bialik is a mom, one who knows what it's like to be a busy parent with little time to spend in the kitchen. She shares the concerns of parents everywhere: when it comes to nutrition and feeding your family, you want healthy meals, but also food that everyone can enjoy, and a balanced lifestyle that's inexpensive and fuss-free. Not only does this book shares more than 100 easy plant-based recipes, but Mayim has also teamed up with pediatrician Jay Gordon to offer: basic nutritional information about a plant-based diet; the real deal on raising kids on a plant-based diet (myths and misperceptions, debunked); vegan family essentials (including a list of what to always keep in the pantry); tips and strategies for easy meal planning and healthy eating out."--Page four of cover.

This is a good book for new vegans. Very basic which is what you need when starting the plant-based journey.

I love mayim so I was sad that I really wasn’t impressed with her vegan cookbook. There’s not much that’s different. Maybe 2 recipes tops and an awful lot of the book is what I would actually classify as vegan junk food. Bummer...

Another customer requested this book so I thought I would try it out.

The recipes were all good but the bread chapter was most interesting. I think the pumpkin bread would be one to try.

It's just so basic and nothing that hasn't been seen a million times before. I was expecting more.

I guess it could be helpful for beginners...

But as the other commenter said on the egg substitute issue. There are so many that could be used and not all work in each recipe. More direction would have been helpful.

Though I disagree on the vegan substitutes. Sometimes, vegan options for those things are nice. But really, a vegan mac and cheese that just states vegan cheese, flour, milk, and macaroni is highly disappointing.
