Travis J. Henry became a vegetarian in 1992. When he subsequently began to study all aspects of diet and nutrition, he was even more convinced that becoming a vegetarian had been the right decision. Several major studies have proven that serum cholesterol and even mortality rates of vegetarians are lower than the average omnivore. It was Travis’s experimentation in creating delicious vegetarian dishes that led to co-writing a cookbook with his mother, Carla L. Henry, the co-author of Souper Skinny Soups,
also by Pelican. The result is Vegetarians in the Fast Lane,
almost 200 delicious recipes designed for preparation in 30 minutes or less.
Eating nutritionally in an active life-style can be difficult, whether one is a vegetarian, semi-vegetarian, or just health minded. This cookbook is a guide to having a heathier life-style in general, without having to invest an unnecessary amount of time.
