    Though they have written two No 1 bestselling vegetarian cookbooks, David and Stephen Flynn, the twins behind the Happy Pear cafés and food business, know it can be challenging to juggle everything and still feel inspired! And being busy dads themselves they also know the pressure of getting delicious healthy meals on the table every day.

    So Recipes for Happiness is very close to their hearts. And it does what it says on the cover: it is crammed with recipes to make you happier - including a huge section of economical easy dinners that can be rustled up in 15 minutes (chickpea tikka masala, thai golden curry, one-pot creamy mushroom pasta); gorgeous hearty dishes (goulash, Greek summer stew, an ingenious one-pot lasagne that's cooked the hob); a selection of plant-based alternatives to family favourites (burgers, hotdogs, nuggets, kebabs), and irresistible treats (summer fruit bakewell tart, double choc brownie cake).

    For nearly 15 years David and Stephen's mantra has been Eat More Veg!. They have seen fads come and go and they know that what works - for themselves, their families and the thousands of people who eat the Happy Pear way. Cook from Recipes for Happiness and you too will definitely be well on the way to making your life healthier and happier!

Nearly twenty years ago David and Stephen Flynn, aka The Happy Pear twins, discovered the joys and benefits of a plant-based diet and embarked on a mission to encourage everyone to 'eat more veg'. Now, with fans like Russell Brand, Joe Wicks, Rangan Chatterjee and Fearne Cotton, sales of over quarter of a million copies of their three cookbooks, a social audience of nearly one million, bestselling vegan products throughout Ireland and the UK, and their original Happy Pear cafés still thriving in Ireland, David and Stephen Flynn's vision goes from strength to strength.
