Veggie Teens

Elyse May, the 16 year-old author of Veggie Teens: A Cookbook and Guide for Teenage Vegetarians, became a vegetarian when she was 12 years old. No one else in Elyse’s immediate family is vegetarian but they supported her decision fully. Her mom, Michelle May MD, a family doctor and mindful eating expert, helped her figure out how to eat to stay healthy. Her dad Owen, a chef, taught her how to make vegetarian foods that her whole family loves, including her older brother Tyler. Together they developed Veggie Teens to help other teenagers learn how to cook delicious, nutritious vegetarian foods too.
Elyse provides family friendly recipes to The Kids Cook Monday website.
