    The highest praise I can give a library-loan cookbook: I decided to buy myself a copy. It is just THAT good that I don't want to live without my own copy! Morgan has a great sense - she has a macrobiotic vegan training, and her recipes reflect this with hig-quality ingredients. I made three recipes (usually my quota in order to rate a book) and all turned out great. The real people pleaser was her cole slaw recipe - and I plan to make more this summer for cookouts.

One thing that impressed me and really set this book apart was her WHOLE section devoted to sea vegetables. I was smitten. I love seaweed like nobody's business, and she provided some great recipes for the wakame, arame, kombu, dulse, and nori in my stash. Can't wait to try more!

    I have to say that while I am giving this book 3 ½ stars, I did find many 5 star worthy recipes in the book. I found many recipes enticing and might borrow this book again, and try several/many of them. And as I wrote and reviewed the book, I felt compelled to up my original official rating from 3 stars to 4 stars because of the information and some recipes, and then back to 3 stars because of the absence of onions and especially garlic. They’re not in these recipes. Of course, I’d usually add t I have to say that while I am giving this book 3 ½ stars, I did find many 5 star worthy recipes in the book. I found many recipes enticing and might borrow this book again, and try several/many of them. And as I wrote and reviewed the book, I felt compelled to up my original official rating from 3 stars to 4 stars because of the information and some recipes, and then back to 3 stars because of the absence of onions and especially garlic. They’re not in these recipes. Of course, I’d usually add them. With tweaking, I’d like these recipes more, though some I’d make as they’re presented. The bliss word drove me a bit nuts. Bliss this and blissful that. Some will like this. I could have done without it. Once again, for my tastes, there is included too much vinegar, coconut, and sea veggies. This is a macrobiotic vegan cookbook and while I’ve enjoyed plenty of macrobiotic meals, and sometimes seek them out, I don’t follow a macrobiotic diet. So I saw tomatoes and some other verboten foods improving some of the recipes, once again just my opinion. But plenty of the recipes looked delicious to me as is. Aside from the bliss/blissful words issue, there is some wonderful information in this book. The text at the beginning of the sections and the recipes and elsewhere, well all of it is helpful, especially the instructions & tips. There are some entertaining quotes throughout the book. Not every recipe has an accompanying photograph, but many of them do, and the photos are wonderful. The recipes are divided by the four seasons and a fifth anytime section; this is for each recipe section. Each recipe has these applicable icons: raw, gluten-free, soy-free, low or no oil, less than 45 minutes, and then chef favorite and fan favorite. I love the various suggested menus, the daily meals ones and the special occasion and specific eaters ones too. Everything is in printed in lower case letters. table of contents: foreword by Kim Barnouin first things first finding your bliss how to read this cookbook the icons creating the ideal kitchen space and pantry pantry basics the tools tips for getting started basic cooking and cutting techniques prepping station the recipes breakfast and brunch for champions appetizers and soups for every occasion not-your-average fresh salads and dressings delectable vegetable sides whole grains and carbs do a body good sea vegetables, huh? compassionate proteins healthier desserts you crave more sample menus resources acknowledgments index metric conversions Here are the recipes I most want to make. The ones with an * in front of them are the ones most likely to inspire me to borrow this book at least one more time. from breakfast & brunch of champions: *kamut crêpes and *lemon crème sauce; pineapple cornbread muffins; mixed berry couscous surprise; orange-pumpkin ginger french toast; *pumpkin spice pancakes; *roasted sweet and yukon potatoes; southwest tofu scramble from appetizers and soups for every occasion: *hearty lentil soup; sweet carrot-ginger bisque; easy guacamole; chilled corn bisque; curried sweet potato and carrot soup; citrus herb cashew crudités; *azuki bean and japanese pumpkin soup from not-your-average fresh salads and dressings: sweet pumpkin dressing from delectable vegetable sides: african collard stir-fry; lemon-roasted asparagus; pumpkin with apricot-ginger glaze; *root fries; lemon-roasted beets, brussels, and yams from whole grains and carbs do a body good: *simple lemon-scented basmati rice; *millet mashed “potatoes”; macro “mac and cheeze”; *sage-infused polenta fries; wild harvest pilaf from sea vegetables, huh?: NONE of them. I’m a huge vegetable lover. When I was a child I loved all but three vegetables and as a young adult I grew to enjoy and/or love them too. But I never tried sea veggies until I was well into adulthood, and I simply don’t like them. I can tolerate a small amount of kombu in certain soups, but that’s about it, so this (short) section is not my personal cup of tea. from compassionate proteins: ***millet black bean burgers; laotian tofu larb; * baked oil-free falafel with tzatziki sauce; *blissful two-bean harvest chili; macro mole enchiladas; * pan-fried tofu with carrot-ginger sauce from healthier desserts you crave: heavenly raw chocolate mousse; *pumpkin hot chocolate; chewy trail mix bars; velvety chocolate mousse with berry sauce and toasted walnuts I do think this is an excellent cookbook and I think that most who are interested in vegan and/or macrobiotic recipes are likely to enjoy it. Back to 4 stars?! Oh, I need ½ stars!

    Yum, yum, yum. If you're looking to make your vegan diet even healthier, then make sure you check out Christy Morgan's Blissful Bites: Vegan Meals that Nourish Mind, Body, and Planet. Divided into chapters by the type of food or time of day and further divided by the seasons, this book is a colourful and positively appetizing look at vegan food, which won't leave you feeling unsatisfied. While you can always take a bite of one recipes either out of season, or by slightly modifying the recipe to Yum, yum, yum.

While you can always take a bite of one recipes either out of season, or by slightly modifying the recipe to feature seasonal veggies, I love Christy's approach, which is vegan macrobiotic, and was thrilled to find not only a selection of recipes that include sea veggies, like nori, arame, wakame, dulse, and kombe, but also an entire chapter on various seaweed-rich recipes that can be enjoyed any time of year. So far, everything I've tried has been truly delicious, and I can't wait to try even more of the recipes.

    Someone needs to write The Cynical Snob's Macrobiotic Cookbook. Until then I'll have to keep reading books that use the word 'bliss' too much. --Greens with basil pecan sauce were bright and flavorful. --Blissed Caesar dressing didn't taste anything like its namesake but did taste good on salad greens with pistachios, oranges, and garden arugula.

(Left out the vinegar, though, since the lemon added plenty of acid.) --Blackened Caesar tempeh wraps with sprouts, shaved carrot, arugula, and avocado tasted good and felt nourishing. The dressing flavor dominates, so really you can't taste the tempeh, but that's just fine.

    Love this one. Worth five stars for the magical raw tacos alone. And also for the springtime kale salad. YUM.

    Refreshingly creative easy homecooked vegan food. A nifty combo of some macrobiotic and raw plant-based principles and other tasty bits and pieces... Fresh food with flair! Food in each chapter is sorted seasonally, which is brilliant and needs to be a feature of ALL recipe books.

    All the recipes I've tried out of this book thus far have been tasty and not too complex or unrealistic for a home-cook in a hurry. I love that the recipes are broken up by seasons and the emphasis is on fresh, unprocessed ingredients (e.g. no faux meats, or pre-made ingredients). I also like that there's a fair number of raw style recipes mixed throughout. The photographs are plentiful and appealing (which is actually really important in a cookbook, to me at least).

    Many of the recipes in the book sounded great...if I had a personal cook and access to a really good health food store. To me it was similiar toThe Kind Diet: A Simple Guide to Feeling Great, Losing Weight, and Saving the Planet, in that many of the recipes had too many ingredients, too many difficult-to-find ingredients, or would take too long to make. Not to mention that my family wouldn't eat them. Many of the recipes in the book sounded great...if I had a personal cook and access to a really good health food store.

    I like how the sections are subdivided by season. A lot of too-fancy-for-me recipes, but also a number of ideas that look good. I should check this out again when I have a bit more cooking time.

    Some of the ingredients are unique and not ones I typically use which made it less likely for me to make a lot of these recipes. I am also not vegan.

    Great pictures and interesting recipes. I loved the easy cheezy broccoli soup, and it even satisfied the two decidedly non-vegan guests. Would like to try some of the sea vegetable recipes too.
