JustBloggs, who would get three e-books if I had any say or that even made sense as a prize:

P ecans are the best
E asy on the almonds
C ashews beat the rest
A lmonds are to die for
N uts to you and me!
S’ all I can say

When Paul contacted me about giving away some copies of his e-book, I was a little nervous. I never want to give away something to you guys that I wouldn’t be 100% excited to get myself, and self-published e-books can be…not good. Luckily for me and you, all you have to do is go over to the site and you will see a clean, fancy layout with beautiful photos, humor, and links to many positive reviews. Anyone who knows me knows that I have a lot of vegan cookbooks and i’m not shy about saying what I do and don’t like the books I buy to have.

Eat Awesome is more of a really nice zine that a book (and ya’ll know I love zines so I mean that positively), there are only about 20 recipes and the recipes are loose with the directions and measurements (which is fine by me since I will do anything to avoid washing a measuring spoon, that’s what I have eyeballs for). There’s also a decent-sized FAQ in the front, along with some pantry staple suggestions. At the end of the book there are over a dozen meal suggestions, or really short recipes (this is in addition to the other twenty). There’s also a zombie reference and a picture of a nut sack (for soaking nuts, you pervs), what more could you want? If you want some super-fancy-pants photos, you also get those. Win/win/win! If you want to check out some of the photos and one of the recipes, they’re right on the front page.

Overall, you can tell that a lot of effort and love went into making this book. It’s focused on using whole foods and is gluten-free, so if that sounds like a good deal to you, keep reading!

Today’s giveaway will please a lot of people because it’s international! If you can download and open a .pdf file, you can win. Woo! We have ten copies of Eat Awesome to give away. Simply comment here, telling me what your favorite nut is (keep it clean, kids) and I will pick ten winners tomorrow at 5 pm.

    MACADAMIA

  2. Jewellee says:

    Cashew..so versatile.

  3. I heart macadamia nuts! I also love pecans, cashews, hazelnuts, and walnuts. I don’t thumb my nose at almonds either. Nuts rock!

  4. Irene says:

    Pistaccio

  8. Christine M. Hansen says:

    Almonds!

  9. Deanna Aliano says:

    I simply love cashews, so much so that I worry that I will become allergic because I eat so many! They’re simply divine to make into cashew milk, and the cashew cheeses are, hands down, the best.

  10. Natalie says:

    Toasted Almonds ARE THE BEST! oh my husband loves BBQ Roasted Cashews (if you wanted to know! :)

  11. Danielle says:

    Almonds!

  13. just checked out the pictures – super pretty! <3

  14. Almonds!! I love them raw, roasted, sprouted and I love soaking them and making almond “cheese”. I love them with fruit, on salads, in wraps, in pasta pretty much in EVERYTHING.

  15. Taylor says:

    Probably walnuts, toasted and put on pumpkin oatmeal!

  16. Krys says:

    Cashews. To quote Ms Moskowitz “always be soaking”

  17. sammy gill says:

    PS – Home made almond milk is super lush xx

    Almonds!!! Not only are they a crunchy snack and topping, but now they are milk and ice cream and cheese, too!!!!

  20. Sara says:

    Pecans! I’ve loved them ever since I had my first pecan pie.

  21. I love roasted chestnuts! They’re only available during Thanksgiving/Xmas time but they are worth the wait. I love the taste and texture. One of my most memorable experiences was when I went to NYC during Xmas time and bought roasted chestnuts from the street vendors in the cold. They melted away the cold and kept me warm as I was walking through the city. They were worth the 5 bucks I paid.

  22. Abby says:

    Almonds! I loves me some almond milk.

    I love macadamia nuts! They’re so crunchy and delicious and great in cookies of course!

  31. Angela says:

    Macadamia nuts – soooo decadent!

  32. Kayla says:

    Hmm. So many great choices. I’m going to have to say the peanut( even though it’s technically a legume) because I’m obsessed with peanut butter!

  33. Alex says:

    It’s between almonds and cashews depending on my mood

  34. PECANS!!! I am originally from Louisiana and there the pecan is used in a variety of ways. I love the combination of sweet potatoes casserole with candied pecans. Grind the pecans to then make a coating for tofu or seitan. Then sauté or bake. There’s pecan pralines. Praline and cream ice cream (of which both can be made vegan). Pecans in rice. Pecan pie, turtles. In salads. There are endless possibilities. Oh pecan butter that you can use to make cookies, a sauce for noodles, and a dipping sauce. What a lovely nut!

    I started eating them in high school (WAY back when Star Wars first came out….do the math…)
    And would eat them instead of meat. Cause my mom would always make steak (um, no, I don’t like…..)

    I ate them while I studied too! And now as an oldester…..(do the math), I eat them when I’m reading on my Kindle….. Have a good one! <3 Gaileee

    For cooking and creating dishes: definitely cashews! But for just eatin’ : toasted pecans!

    Any and all! – but for this one choice … I gotta say almond. Just starting out with this new vegan lifestyle and trying to learn new ways to cook and eat… It is not going as easy as I had hoped. This book might be the inspiration to keep me on track.

  59. Josiane says:

    I love nuts, pretty much all of them, and they all get to be called my favorites, each for a specific reason. If I had to pick one now, I’d say pistachios, but not any old ones, no… After spending time in Iran, I’ve become quite picky when it comes to pistachios, and only fresh Iranian pistachios will do!

  60. Nicola says:

  102. Theresa says:

    Hard to pick just one! I’ll say almonds.

  103. Looks like it is a pretty popular choice, but I love cashews. Great on their own by the handful, wonderful in curries, great as a butter, milk, cheese base, and on and on and on. Yum.

  104. maggie says:

    my favourite nut is cashew since i use it often for the base of cheesecakes :) yuuum

  105. Michelle says:

    (read top down)

  111. Leslie P. says:

    Cashew for sure! Mmmm….

  112. Susan Kelley says:

    Pecans. In oatmeal and on just about any dessert. They just have the best flavor.

    Hazelnuts from Freddy Guy (in Oregon) are a revelation. They just have so much flavor.

    Macadamia and cashew tie for third. And I’m one of those weirdos who really digs Brazil nuts. Yum.

  113. greta says:

    Cashews. I love the rich flavor and texture.

  114. Anneh says:

    right now, I’m loving peanut…specifically, in butter form. A little spoonful is the best snack just before bed when you are hungry but not that hungry.

  115. Jenn Pleban says:

    Not sure how to narrow it down to one, but I can tell you I DO love pecans, almonds, macadamias, pistachios, walnuts, cashews.. heck’s I LOVE ‘EM ALL! I recently bought raw pili nuts- not yet tried, but am excited to see what they are like!

    Pecans are my absolute favorite, but I prolly eat more almonds than any other nut.

  117. Monica says:

    Brazil nuts rule the world!

  118. Macadamia, for sure! But I’m having second thoughts after my friend informed me this morning that a cup of macadamias = 987 calories! Eeek! He uses a whole cup in his prized vegan Chex Mix. Oh well.

  119. Christie says:

    I love pistachios – salted and fragrant, such a complex wonderful flavour and a fabulous colour.

  120. Mary Hindle says:

    Cashews! I just went vegan and they are a lifesave for providing me with cheesy sauces and mayos. Yay!

    Cashew- so versatile and love the ” cheese” it makes! Would love the cookbook in Canada!

  122. Gail says:

    I would say pecans.

  123. Karen says:

    it’s a toss up between almonds and cashews, both are versatile, nutritious, and delicious
