Cookbooks vs. Pinterest? Which Do You Prefer for Organic, Vegan and Vegetarian Recipes?

It’s funny – every since starting this juice detox 19 days ago, all I can think about is food. At first I would find myself browsing my vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free and dessert recipe boards endlessly on Sunday mornings – completely torturing myself! But as time went by I found myself starting to pin more plant-based, healthy foods and less and less sweets! Small changes are good.

However, while I was browsing I looked up to see the vast array of colorful cookbooks on our media center. I began to wonder how the internet and websites such as Pinterest will shape the cookbook industry. The mister, who does the cooking in our household still uses several of his cookbooks on a weekly basis, but there are several that I purchased that hardly get used, because I find it much easier to catalog and access all of the recipes that I want to try on Pinterest.

So, I wondered what are your thoughts? Do you prefer a beautiful cookbook or Pinterest for recipes?

Last year, I compiled a list of 5 beautiful cookbooks that I was coveting – to be honest, I still would love to have these cookbooks, even though I am a Pinterest addict!

    Hmm, I guess I’ve become a PInterest girl, mostly out of convenience because I can look at my desk when I should be working. Shhhh. 🙂

    Hi Alyson,
    I agree, I find it to be more convenient too! Thanks for sharing.

    I must confess that I hate cooking and so does my hubby…that said, I do prefer a paper book because I hate having to either print the recipe or walk back and forth from the kitchen to the PC…LOL laziness trumps here
