Flip Shelton radiates energy and it comes through in her food. If it's true that we are what we eat, I think most of us could do with a bit more of what Flip eats on a regular basis.

My new cook book - VEG IN - is OUT NOW!
Veg In is crammed with simple, healthy, vegetarian alternatives to your favourite takeaway meals. The 100 recipes in this book were inspired by my favourite international dishes.
Veg In includes an abundance of recipes for delicious dips and drinks, scrumptious side dishes, exotic main course and dreamy desserts. No need for a passport or a drive in the car. Take your tastebuds around the world on a gastronomic journey without leaving your front door!
This is takeaway - DIY style. We often think we can't be bothered or it's quicker to get a takeaway but with some very simple planning and a few essential ingredients in the pantry, cooking these recipes is not only easy but empowering. What's more - there are no mysterious ingredients - you know what you are eating!
Veg In is divided into ten chapters - Indian, Greek, Chinese, Japanese, Malaysian, Middle Eastern, Mexican, Pizza, Spuds and Burgers. And the best vegetarian dishes from these cultures and cuisines are the focus. It also provides suggestions for themed dinners and kid's parties - all very achievable, healthy and economical.
Colorful photographs and quirky illustrations complement the irresistible recipes.
