Kathy Hester

Kathy Hester develops vegan recipes that make it easier to get a nutritious dinner on the table night after night. She is passionate about teaching people how to eat better with less effort and without spending a fortune. Kathy went meatless back in 1983 when it was hard to find tofu and tempeh, much less modern-day luxuries like vegan marshmallows and a range of non-dairy milks.

Kathy spends her free time transforming her front yard into a veggie garden, entertaining (vegan fondue anyone?), writing her blog, Healthy Slow Cooking, and developing delicious meatless recipes that even picky eaters and omnivores love. If you've been wanting to get more greens, whole grains, and vegan protein sources into your diet you'll definitely want to learn Kathy's innovative methods for fitting healthy, whole foods into your busy schedule.

With her love of slow cookers it’s no surprise her first book is The Vegan Slow Cooker: Simply Set It and Go with 150 Recipes for Intensely Flavorful, Fuss-Free Fare Everyone (Vegan or Not!) Will Devour.

"This book might just revolutionize vegan cooking! Kathy Hester's recipes are ridiculously fast and easy, unbelievably delicious, and believe it or not—cheap. Bravo, Kathy!"
–Kathy Freston, New York Times best-selling author of Veganist

Kathy Hester lives in Durham, North Carolina, with her two cats (that would rather not live together), a cute dog with a belly-rubbing addiction, her very own picky eater, and more slow cookers than any one person should own.

    Whole Grains for the Whole Family

    Whole grains is a buzz word but it’s around for good reason, because whole grains really are better for you. Most grains are processed from their original form.

    Add a Nutritional Boost to Your Pasta Dishes

    There are so many types of pasta available it’s easy to get confused. For me, it’s most important that I get a 100% whole grain pasta. If you’re gluten-free you can look for brown rice pasta instead of regular rice pasta to get in your fair share of whole grain too.
