HHTV: Happy Herbivore TV

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

Category: News

The Happy Herbivore Cookbook is quickly coming to a close. I'm busy editing, finishing up the last couple of recipes and taking photos (which is hard!) -- my poor blog and website have been completely neglected but I'll make it up to you soon, I promise!

In the meantime, I have started another exciting adventure -- my very own cooking show! I lovingly call it HHTV ("Happy Herbivore TV") but the technical name is Happy Herbivore Live. Every day at lunchtime (12:30 EST) I invite my webcam into my kitchen, cook up one of my recipes and chat with my audience. My broadcasts are unscripted and completely unrehersed which can sure make things interesting!

If you can't tune in when I'm LIVE, no worries -- you can watch the show again later at your leisure. Please feel free to send in any questions you want answered or request any recipes you'd like to be demonstrated on the show! happyherbivore at gmail dot come or hit me up via twitter! @happyherbivore!

Winner Announced: e-cookbooks Giveaway

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

Thank you to everyone who participated. Some of the comments really touched my heart! Now that I see how much interest there is in winning these e-cookbooks, I plan to hold another e-cookbook giveaway, so if you didn't win, be sure to keep your eyes peeled!

You can also signup for the Newsletter; I always give subscribers a heads up about upcoming contests and giveaways. Plus as a subscriber, you're automatically entered into every giveaway and sometimes that makes you eligible for two or more entries!

To pick the winners, I randomly assigned everyone a number (newsletter subscribers and entries via comment) and let random.org do the rest! Subscriber winners, you should have already received an email from me. Now for the winner from the blog.... 

Congrats JoshH345! "Looking forward to the Vegan Cooking shows and e-cookbook!"

In case you're wondering what Josh is talking about, I've started Happy Herbivore TV, a LIVE cooking show with healthy, wholesome, low fat vegan food! Every weekday (*schedule permitting) I'm cooking LIVE from my humble kitchen at lunchtime (12:30 EST). I also answer questions submitted to me via email and the Facebook Fan Page or through the show's chatrooms.

If you can't tune in LIVE with us, you can watch the recorded video at your leisure. I hope you join us today or some day this week!



As you know, I've authored four e-cookbooks: Sneak Peak, Pudge-Free Holidays, Backyard Vegan & the Best of Happy Herbivore. A few of the recipes will be featured in my upcoming cookbook but not all of them. Since the e-cookbooks will only be for sale for a limited time, I'm giving away a couple of copies of Happy Herbivore readers! 

Here's how to win all four of my e-cookbooks:


  1. Leave a comment below (with a valid email address); I'll pick one lucky commentor.
  2. Sign up for the Happy Herbivore newsletter, two subscribers will be picked.


I'll be picking winners on Monday, January 11, 2010!

Best of 2009

Category: Holiday

I can't believe another year has come and gone. 2009 has been a very exciting year for Happy Herbivore (and me). I returned to New York from California in July. In October, Happy Herbivore celebrated it's second birthday and in December, I celebrated my third veganniversary. Best of all I found a terrifc publisher in November and the Happy Herbivore Cookbook is on it's way! I just wrapped up the 190th recipe, so it's almost done!

Other note worthy achievements include Happy Herbivore recipes being featured three times on Meatless Monday and having four original recipes published in the January issue of Vegetarian Times (still in stores!).

Although I posted more than 30 new recipes on Happy Herbivore in 2009, some are always bigger hits than others. Here are the top 10 most popular fat-free recipes on Happy Herbivore in 2009!

1. Apple-Cinnamon Coffee Cake

2. Black Bean Brownies

3. Instant Vegan Alfredo

4. She-Crab Soup

5. Eggnog

6. Pumpkin-Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

7. Cinnamon Buns

8. Cheesecake

9. Mock Tuna

10. Hippe Loaf

Here's to 2010 being another great year filled with health, happiness and peace!
