“This book is for anyone whose philosophy is that dieting shouldn’t mean restricting yourself to eating small portions of bland vegetables, side salads or relying on diet shakes…Isa shows that, with the right ideas and inspiration, diet food can be quick, imaginative and tasty.”
“[Moskowitz] begins with information on vegan nutrition and shares under-400-calorie recipes that are packed with flavor. Those new to a low-fat vegan diet may be surprised by satisfying meals such as OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings, Chipotle Lentil Burgers with Sweet Potato Fries, Mac & Trees (macaroni, cheese, and broccoli), and Chili Verde con Papas. Best-selling author Moskowitz is sure to create demand.”

The Vegan, UK, March 2011
“If you’re aiming to lose weight, or just eat healthily, but still enjoy food, this is the book for you.”
Bust, April/May 2011
“Bursting with inventive, flavorful techniques for lightening up comfort-food favorites and for making plants pop in new and exciting ways.”
“The perfect book for that picky vegetarian who is determined to eat healthy and maybe even lose some weight.”

January Magazine (Canada), 12/20/10
“As with previous Moskowitz books, one thing not sacrificed is flavor. She plays with Asian, Mediterranean, Indian and Latin cuisine with her recipes in ways that make you feel like you’re not losing taste by cutting out fat.”
BBC Good Food (UK), February 2011
“This is a vegan diet book, but forget your preconceptions and look at the food. Isa is an amazing cook—her recipes are delicious and written for people who want to lose weight, but not their enjoyment of food. She uses spices cleverly to make you forget you’re eating low fat and ups the grain and veg content to keep you satisfied. Isa reworks favorites making them lighter and healthier. Her book is worth buying for the salad dressings alone.”
Washington Post, 1/19/11
Hudson Valley News,
“For those in the vegan community who are also health conscious, Moskowitz has delivered the goods on a plate too irresistible to deny. Isa Chandra Moskowitz is the best friend we’re all looking for: she writes in a way we understand, a language that is easily understood and humorous. She is also the cook we want for our healthy lives and families. She gets it. She gets that we don’t want to give up taste and satisfaction for healthy living…From funky hummus creative ideas to ‘OMG Oven-Baked Onion Rings,’ from sides to satisfying full entrée ideas, Moskowitz turns your vegan kitchen upside down, shakes out the fat, and replaces it with novel and tasty ideas to keep your mind interested and your tongue happy you tried something new…Vegan or omnivore, you will find something to rave about and savor in Appetite for Reduction.”
VegNews, February 2011
“From the grand dame of vegan cookbooks, Appetite doesn’t leave you hungry…From salads that satisfy like meals to hearty pasta dishes to every vegetable imaginable, Appetite doesn’t miss a beat…Unlike other diet books, Appetite isn’t about dropping 20 pounds in a weekend; it’s about eating healthfully in a way that can lead to weight loss without resorting to drastic measures—measures which Moskowitz assures are guaranteed to pile pounds right back on.”
“If you're suffering through the fourth day of some weird diet, you might want to pick up a copy of this book and make yourself something good to eat.”
San Francisco Book Review, 1/10/11
Vegetarian Times’, November/December 2010
“Offers 125 recipes for low-fat, plant-based dishes that don’t skimp on flavor.”
Vegetarian Living (UK), December 2010
“Jam-packed with mouth-watering vegan recipes that are low in fat and light on calories…[Moskowitz’s] recipes are visual and gastronomic delights, which inspire the reader to try new things and cook outside of their comfort zone, while never underestimating the beauty of the familiar.”
“[Isa Moskowitz is] the queen of the vegans.”

I own many cookbooks, but hers are the ones I use most. I feel like she has really WORKED to get those recipes right, making sure each detail is perfect, unlike many other chefs I know who just sort of put cookbooks together without reading a recipe twice. Isa's not just writing cookbooks for paychecks, she's on a mission: to show the world that vegan food is amazing. And I, for one, am convinced.
We have enjoyed many recipes from this book, but my highlights are the pad thai salad, grilled portobellos, pasta con broccoli, marinara sauce, eggplant and chickpea curry, Moroccan chickpea and zucchini stew; delicious! I usually adjust the seasoning in most recipes I get from cookbooks, but not with these! Adventurous palates will be very pleased: as much attention has been put into making these dishes taste amazing as it has been put into making them healthy. The very precise nutritional info for each recipe is great, and the ingredients are generally very easy to get your hands on, even if the meal ends up tasting exotic. There are also plenty of tips for variations, clever ways to use leftovers, and combining recipes to create stunning meals. I refer to this book constantly when low on culinary inspiration, and I wouldn't go without it.
I highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys a delicious home-cooked meal, but especially to people looking for low-fat recipe ideas, or to omnivores looking to use more vegetables and meat-free alternative in their cooking routines. Also check out her book "Vegan with a Vengeance".
I love all the little symbols and tips that go along with the recipes, so you can know exactly how long to expect the prep and cook time to take, and can get a quick nutritional profile of each meal.
Plus, Isa's writing style is just plain fun and makes for an enjoyable read through each recipe!
I'd highly recommend this book for anyone looking for delicious, plant-based meals that will please vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike.
Many, very good and FLAVORFUL vegan recipes!
Won my mother over with the Irish Seitan Stew!
Isa Chandra Moskowitz is the best vegan author-out there-in my opinion.
