It is not hard to be inspired by the recipes and photographs. Just the thought of a new recipe that would bring a smile to the families face is enough for me.

The fragrance and texture of herbs and spices, the colors of ripe fruits and vegetables are very enticing... eating is a very sensual experience and the prep should be the foreplay. The combination of the right sweet to spicy or salty and moist paired with the right wine is a moment of delight. We all remember those memorable meals that we wish we could have again and again. Creating a plate of beautifully prepared eatables is a mood enhancer. The opportunity to cook for the love of it, is my happy zone.

Ever since I started a plant-based diet (wow, almost 4 years ago!), I've been inspired to cook foods that taste delicious AND make my body feel good. What a difference it has made! Would love to win the book--new cookbooks are invaluable for staying inspired in the kitchen at our house. :)

I am inspired by the thought of creating a dish that makes the tastebuds tingle that the whole family will enjoy when we have our family meals.

I've been trying to eat fresh, local, and organic whenever possible. Now I'm debating whether to go vegetarian so I'm on the lookout for good vegetarian cookbooks and this one looks great!!

I really like cooking for my parents, and I love the sense of accomplishment I feel when I can manage to make something that tastes sinfully delicious but is actually pretty healthy.

I am inspired by all the people who have led the way into a healthier choice when it comes to raw and cooked foods. Watching my husbands health improve by changing his diet and thought patterns about food have been an even bigger inspiration in my life!

I got interested in cooking as a teenager, if not sooner. After I went to college and had more opportunities to cook for myself, I started to learn more and branch out more on what I tried in the kitchen. For a couple years now I've been vegetarian, and vegan for almost a year. It's been a great opportunity to explore another way to cook and eat, and I'm so glad I did!

A number of health problems inspire me to maximize what is in my control, and what I eat is more in my control than many other factors. But, I love, love, love eating, so reinventing what I eat and having many options to cook will make sure that I am doing what I can for my health as well as my enjoyment.

EVERYTHING inspires me when it comes to cooking. I can get inspired during cooking and often don't know exactly what the finished product will be until I'm done. Cooking shows fire me up. Cookbooks definitely inspire me with mouth-watering recipes. I even read cookbooks in bed, but it makes me hungry!

I am inspired to feel my family healthy food to keep them healthy and I'm inspired to teach them how to eat well so that they carry it forward to their families when they are grown.

Making beautiful, healthy tasty meals inspires me. I particularly love Mexican food and love to create new dishes that take inspiration from this amazing cuisine.

Taste and control inspire me to cook. I love that I can make something delicious that is not tainted with GMOs and chemicals.

Really, just the smiles on my husband and daughter's faces when they are eating a meal inspires me! I love it when my daughter makes all of those little "mmmm" sounds as she eats!!

What inspires me is that the imagination and preparation in making a dish that is lovely, touchy and tasty. I love to cook more and more with the support from my wife and friends.

I cook because I want delicious AND nourishing food! When I cook things myself, I know exactly what's in my food and how it's made. It's empowering to take that into my own hands!

What inspires me and gets me cooking is the need to create, to feel comforted by the aromas of really good food that is kind to animals and the planet. I love to cook for friends and family and to show them that delicious food doesn't have to be meat, dairy or egg-based. Vegan dishes are a constant source of surprise and delight and I am always searching recipes to supplement my creative repetoire of Vegan dishes.

Healthy, local, fresh foods inspire me! I love exploring the farmer's market, and using my fresh picks as inspiration for unique new meals throughout the week :)

I get inspired to cook by cooking shows, magazines, in-store samples, and beautiful recipe pictures.
