It is no secret, I am a meal prepper. I have little time (or patience) during the work week to prepare healthy choices, so I cook on the weekends and have as much as possible ready to go, including freezing leftovers for meals later. I am a vegetarian eating many vegan meals, and it can be difficult to find healthy options when I am out and about, which further requires preparation on my part. Like everyone, I get tired of the same old foods.

Vegan Yack Attack on the Go is a life saver. It inclu

Now this is a useful and inspiring book for vegan breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks that you can take with you 'on the go', whether you're off to school, work, camping, or elsewhere. Instead of just focussing on boring vegan food that no one with any tastebuds would want to eat - as CAN be the case with vegan cookbooks (though increasingly less so these days), this cookbook manages to be engaging and offer recipes that look like they'd be bursting with f

Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! YES!

Sobon makes achieving a more plant-based diet much easier to do with the release of Vegan Yack Attack on the Go!

The new release is an instant success on how to prepare healthy vegan food that you can whip up in a jif and eat or save for later that day by following Sobon's handy advice with his on-the-move tips on how to pack, wrap or stack it up for easy transport. Yes. I have been waiting for a book like this to come along and it is finally here. I am not vegan, but I t
if you are a new vegan, buy this book. It’s full of recipes that you’ll enjoy at home or at work, at school, anywhere really. Nearly every recipe is pictured, so you’ll know what it’s supposed to look like if, like me, you like to see it before you make it.

I received an e-copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I have long been an advocate of eating simply with fresh, colorful, natural and nutritious ingredients. Most of my meals are already vegetarian, and I feel the positive difference in my body. I am now interested in going a step further into vegan and hopefully my husband will embrace it as well. This recipe collection is a good place to start and begins my first attempt to do just that. I don’t know how many recipes there are in total but there are a lot of them. I am inspired.

One of the most interested vegan cookbooks i have seen so far.

Lots of new recipe ideas, great mixture of different flavours and textures as wells wonderful ideas on how to prep, transport and keep the meals fresh!

This book really keeps all the promises it gives in the title!

And on top of that the recipes are very easy to follow along and turn out great so far (i have not tried every single one of them of course, but those i did try turned out great!)

This is one of the most “accessible” vegan books I gave come across. The recipes require ingredients that are bought at your local supermarket and, quite frankly, they looked delicious. I am happy to have added several recipes to my repertoire.
The first chapter of this book presents you with the usual things you find in a cookbook intro. It describes what tools you’ll need. It also describes the vegan diet in general. And finally it explains what it means when it uses terms like gluten-free, soy free, portable, sugar free, make ahead, etc. I find their extended list of labels extra useful as it seems most books just tag recipes as vegetarian, vegan, or what allergens it’s free off. The extra categories help you find something that’s f ...more

Some of the things I LOVE about this book: There are bulk cooking recipes, 30 minute recipes and lunch box recipes!  As a busy mom who tries to eat healthy, I appreciate being able to make food ahead of time or quickly.  

My daughters and I tried the Recovery Smoothie which is like a decadent chocolate milkshake and soooo good and creamy and delicious!  I also made the Lentil Balls with Zesty Rice and my husband said to put it in the rotation!  My daughter is dying to make the Pumpkin Maple Donut

Vegan Yack Attack On The Go by Jackie Sobon

With seven years of experience cooking, eating and sharing recipes on her blog, Vegan Yack Attack, this author has presented recipes that are creative and tasty sounding. There is information related to pantry staples, cooking utensils and storage containers as well as tips and tricks to make cooking easier. Some of the recipes sounded intriguing but then I would see ingredients that I don’t stock in my pantry and wonder if I will be able to find them i

I absolutely love this book. It's full of inventive, yet easily accessible vegan recipes.

The introduction and helpful tips at the beginning of the book are great for new vegans or inexperienced cooks. I couldn't agree more with the comments the author made about why she went vegan, and I felt like I could relate to her journey so much as it seems so similar to my own.

The recipes in the book are not anything I haven't seen before, but there are some great ideas and twists on tried and tested reci

3.5 stars from me. So, my family is not vegan. We have eaten a vegan diet in the past, and I like to mix up our meals to make sure we’re getting enough veggies and don’t get stuck in a rut, so I often check out vegan and vegetarian cookbooks. This one has some good ideas, but I have to be honest that none of them screamed MAKE ME!! when reading through it. But that’s ok - not every cookbook is for everybody. I think this cookbook is more of a workhorse for the actual vegan - some great ideas and ...more

Wow! There are so many unique recipes in here! I look through a lot of cookbooks and most are the same dishes over and over again. Not so with "Vegan Yack Attack on the Go"! There are so many things in here I want to make right away.

I'm very impressed with the recipes, the photos (I counted only 4 recipes without a photo), and the layout. She clearly labels each recipe with important distinctions like "nut-free"and "30 minutes or

If you're a vegan and frequently on the go, it can be hard to eat well while still maintaining your plant-based lifestyle. You need options you can make in advance, take with you, or prepare quickly and easily once you get home.

If you’re a vegan, and especially an American vegan, chances are you have heard of Vegan Yack Attack. Maybe you’re a fan of Jackie Sobon’s excellent blog, or perhaps you already own her first book, “Vegan Bowl Attack!” Possibly, you follow her column in VegNews magazine. As a food photographer, she has also illustrated some of my favorite cookbooks, like “NYC Vegan” and “Superfoods 24/7.” Many readers value illustrated recipes, and as we say in German, ‘das Auge isst mit’ (‘the eye eats, as well ...more

A vegan recipe book where I can get most of the ingredients at the supermarket? Really? Really!

I like this book so much, so many wonderful recipes I want to try out. It's probably the first cook book I've wanted to flag nearly every page of.

Vegan Yack Attack on the Go! is an exciting new vegan cookbook with creative recipe ideas. Sobon created this book to give readers “a wide variety of meals that are fun, tasty, and quick to pull together”. Included are sections on pantry basics and appliances, which are pretty run of the mill, preceding the recipes. The recipes are split into seven chapters:

I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review.

As an introduction, I am mostly paleo in my dietary philosophy though not dogmatic.
Healthiness and novelty are the primary concerns for me when judging cookbooks.
In my opinion, this is an above average cookbook although not impressive enough to weigh in against my favorites.

This book covers a pretty wide gamut of recipes, though none of them are mind blowing conceptually if you've collected a shelf of cookbooks. Illustrations are b

This cookbook focused on quick, portable, vegan (no meat, dairy, eggs) snacks and meals. There were just over 100 recipes, and most of the recipes were less than 30 minutes (or 10 minutes) to make. The author used things like store-bought "vegan cheese" or "vegan yogurt," probably to save time and effort. She even used a gluten-based meat substitute in some of the recipes. While she did indicate if a recipe was safe for people with certain allergies, she did use soy products in a number of recip ...more

OMG! This cookbook has a recipe for vegan pierogi! It gets all the stars for that recipe only, but actually this is one of the best cookbooks I found and read and browsed and took notes from in a while!

Featuring recipes from simple to super complicated, savory to sweet, to basics that you can keep in the kitchen for weeks. It does not matter if it's vegan or not, this cookbook simply has a balance that it is hard to achieve in

I am no where near a Vegan, as a matter of fact I am pretty far from being one. I do love my fruits and vegetables though. I honestly believe that you can find some of the best tasting fruit and vegetable recipes in vegan cookbooks.

As I was going through this book I found so many recipes I cannot wait to set on the table for my family. The book is broken down into sections. Breakfast, prep aheads, bulk and more. The best thing about these recipes are they are all quick recipes.

This Vegan cookbook is fantastic! The recipes sound delicious and I am so excited to try them out!

While a few seem to use store bought vegan "fake" products, like cheese, most do not and have actual recipes for foods like bacon and cheese that use vegan foods to substitute in. Since I'm a mom of young children and we don't have extra to spend on expensive vegan free specialty foods, I love that they have easy do it yourself recip

This is a colourful and inspiring book full of recipes, well laid out, under the headings: breakfasts; food to prepare ahead; lunch box ideas; meals in thirty minutes or less; bulk cooking; food on the move and make your own staples. As a non-vegan I still found the recipes, with their accompanying photos, very tempting with lots of variety. It's worth noting that a few of the recipes require a food processor, a pressure cooker, a waffle maker or a blender and these may not be readily available ...more

Every recipe looks delicious and I want to eat everything. Veganism is broken down into easy to understand information, nothing too overwhelming and no info dumps. This could be a fantastic book for those looking to eat more plant-based meals even if they don't wish to be totally vegan. Jackie focuses on not using too many ingredients, creating recipes that aren't too time consuming or complex, and most importantly making food that tastes good and is filling. So many vegan cookbooks are very sam ...more

I found the recipes in this book to be interesting; there were many flavor combos that I would honestly never think to try, but it got me out of my comfort zone with meat-free cooking. (I'm vegetarian, not vegan). There weren't a ton of ingredients for each recipe, which is great, and the ingredients weren't hard to find, which seems to happen too much in vegan cooking.

I made the BBQ Tempeh Wrap, Smoky Parmesan Popcorn, and Chia Seed Pudding. I'm looking forward to making more recipes from this
