Vegan for Fun Cookbook Review

Posted on Apr 20 2014 - 8:00am by Susan Bewley

Disclosure: I received these products for free to review. The opinions in my review are honest and my own.

Sometimes the hardest thing for any of us is finding the right balance of healthy and great tasting food. I have tried many vegetarian and vegan cookbooks over the years and I will freely admit, some of them were horrifying. I still remember spending over two hours on a dish that looked like mush and tasted even worse (and it looked just like the picture!). For this reason, I am always reluctant to try vegetarian and vegan cookbooks unless I see they are highly rated and have been tried out previously. Recently, I was approached to review Vegan for Fun, a very popular vegan cookbook from Germany. After reading some of was said online, however, I couldn’t wait to dig into my digital copy of this cookbook!

Vegan for Fun: What is It

Looking for a vegan cookbook that is filled with healthy recipes and designed for just about anyone? If so, we think you will love Vegan for Fun. This German cookbook has been taking the world by storm, with actors, star, and athletes all over the world adapting it to their own lifestyle and going vegan. Attilda Hildmann, after seeing his father die early of diet related issues, decided to change the way he lived by getting off the couch and changing his life. By switching to a vegan diet and exercising, he lost over 65 pounds, becoming healthier and finding he had more energy. He believes that vegan food should be delicious and appealing, using only the best ingredients to help us rethink how we view food. With a diet low in fat and cholesterol free, everyone can enjoy delicious meals without feeling guilty about using animal products and what we are putting in our bodies.

Vegan for Fun: Overall

As someone who isn’t vegan herself, I have to say that this cookbook sounds amazing. I can only think of two recipes in the entire cookbook I wouldn’t make, and that is due to my husband’s pure hatred of mushrooms (I will just make them when he isn’t home – hehe). All the recipes look appealing, use simple ingredients, and are very easy to make, making them perfect for just about any lifestyle. While the book is designed for vegans, it really is the perfect book for just about anyone who wants to add healthier meals to their weekly meal plan. Based on my own experience with this book, I am happy to give Vegan for Fun an A rating.

    I am a non-meat eater and trying hard to go vegan altogether. My husband, however, thinks that meat is a “necessity.” I so need some good recipes to prove him wrong and this sounds like a great resource for me – I’d love to win it!

    I’d love to win the book because I’m looking to incorporate more meat free meals into our life. I love looking at cookbooks to get new ideas for dinner. Thanks for the giveaway!

    I’ve been a non meat eater for 16 years, and I’m ready to go vegan. I just don’t know how to cut out cheese & sour cream. I do use soy sour cream when I can get it but few stores have it where I live, it’s a rural area and it’s at least 20 miles one way to any store that sells produce and soy products. Maybe this book could help me take the next step.

    Why would I like to win this great cookbook? Well, because being totally vegan has been my goal for a while now, but I never seem to be able to succeed 100% of the time. I grow a lot of my own veggies and love to cook, but I really need more FUN ideas!

    I have tried some vegan recipes both at home and at health food restaurants/cafes and I’m really intrigued by the lifestyle. I don’t think I could go 100% vegan but I’d like to incorporate more vegan food in my diet.
