Happy Herbivore Abroad Giveaway, enter to win

Well, the time has come for my first giveaway to be featured. 

**Update: I received  a copy of HHA and in order to do this giveaway justice, I will be doing a small review next week. The giveaway is now extended until 14 December. Remember, all you have to do is leave a comment for a chance to win! **

Happy Herbivore Abroad is Lindsay Nixon's third cookbook and I could not be happier to giveaway a copy right here. Vegan or not, this book will become something you grad for time and again. So, enter to win a copy.

Below is an interview I had with Lindsay on her new book and inspiration.

All you have to do is leave a comment below and I will choose the winner 14 December. 


1) What was your favorite city you visited and was it plant-based friendly?
 I'm not sure that I have a favorite -- I guess it would depend on what I was looking for... a city that I loved, and happened to have a lot of vegan options, or the city with the best vegan fare, but was not necessarily a city I loved, etc. 

2) What was the most plant-friendly city you visited?
I think this too depends on what you're looking for. Berlin, for example, has an all-vegan supermarket, which you can't really beat, but then there were other cities -- and countries, that on the whole, I found to be more plant-friendly than Berlin. Due to the nature of Italian cuisine, it was a breeze being plant-based in Italy. I also had some of the best vegan food in my life in other parts of Germany (like Hamburg), even though the city itself wasn't as plant-friendly as other cities I visited...  
3) How was this book different in writing than your other two?
It's very personal. In addition to the international "theme" I've included stories of my travel and life. 
4) Did you encounter any different ingredients on your travels that you incorporated in your new cookbook?
I don't like to use foreign or exotic ingredients in my cookbooks -- I try to focus on everyday ingredients we all have in our pantry.  
5) If you had to live on 1 food for a year, what would it be and why?
Potatoes. They're so versatile.

I had a hard time being plant-based in Italy! I think it's because I didn't know what to look for since I was a newbie vegetarian and ended up eating bread and egg dishes.
