A Plant-Based Life: Your Complete Guide to Great Food, Radiant Health, Boundless Energy, and a Better Body
There is a lot of sound science out there to back up the healthfulness of a plant-based diet, but it is a huge challenge to transition from the “standard American diet” to one without meat, eggs, or milk. That’s where a book like A Plant-Based Life comes in. Author Micaela Cook Karlsen recognizes how daunting it might seem and understands that many need more than facts and recipes to stick with it, and her book provides a step-by-step action plan to help. Readers will be able to pinpoint what motivated them to go plant-based in the first place, they’ll get a solid education in what is (and isn’t) part of a plant-based diet, and they’ll get advice on how to build habits, create a supportive environment, and connect with other like-minded individuals. And, of course, there are pages of actual recipes to help you get started. Karlsen clearly knows the challenges and potential pitfalls of such a major life change, and the helpful, encouraging tone of this book is sure to help people who need a little boost.
