This book is the real deal. When they say that eating healthy does not have to be over-complicated or too time intensive, this book offers the ability to do just that – eat healthy without breaking the bank or investing all your free time doing so. I also really appreciate the *Shop Smart, Prep Smart, Cook Smart Tips sections that explain everything from buying and storing produce or how to cut and peel ginger to get the most antioxidants which live just below the skin. So great. At first I did not think I would use the pages that encourage me to write down variations to recipes. But I found myself jotting down how I turned her quesadilla recipe into a salad with whole wheat pasta. Although I’m not vegan, this is a great book to own so that I can easily incorporate as many meatless plant-based meals as I can into my life. Great ideas and nutritional guidance. Great recipes. Great cookbook!
