I’m on CBS 17 talking about my new book, Mostly Plant-Based and some easy budget-friendly plant-based eating tips.
When clients begin working with me, they often have the misconception that following a healthy diet means a higher price tag. When you do things right, this is not true. Purchasing mostly plant- based whole-food ingredients like produce, grains, legumes, nuts, and seeds while limiting animal products and eliminating processed foods is bound to save you money month after month. I teach you how to shop smart for a mostly plant-based diet. Additionally, because you get sick less often when you follow a mostly plant-based diet and you’re warding off chronic disease, your healthcare costs will ultimately be lower.
This book contains 100 recipes that require only 10 ingredients or less saving you time AND money. In today’s busy world and economy, the majority my clients and audience are looking for healthy tasty meals that are cost effective and don’t require spending hours in the kitchen. While nutrition is my life as a dietitian, that is not the reality for my health-minded audience where food and nutrition is usually an afterthought to their work and family life. These simple recipes allow you to eat for heath, energy, weight management and disease prevention and more while allowing you to spend the majority of your energy on the things that matter most to you. The recipes in this book offer infinite customization options to include or exclude animal foods with over 20 recipes that include 6+ variations (for a total of 170+ recipes!) ie. Overnight Breakfast – 12 ways (YES, 12), Salad Jars 6 ways, No Bread Sandwiches 3 ways & more.
Imagine your favorite health magazine that you grab at the airport kiosk before a flight – that is what this book is but a timeless version that you will refer to time and time again. Between the easy to follow 21-day meal plan, grocery shopping guide, 100 recipes with ingredient icons, and useful charts to simplify cooking like ‘build an all-day energy smoothie’ and ‘build a sheet pan meal’, this book makes nutrition and healthy eating FUN. I wanted to create a book that you’ll actually find useful in your day to day life instead of collecting dust on a shelf after flipping through it once. This book is exactly that. Between the helpful charts, simple staple recipes, and grocery shopping guide, it will earn a spot in your kitchen.
Mostly Plant-Based is a sustainable, realistic way of eating for LIFE that effortless supports health, energy, weight management, and more and does away with extreme dieting. As a registered dietitian, I recognize there is a need for a realistic diet that is actually sustainable in today’s food world that supports what people are looking to address like disease prevention, energy and weight loss and management. This is it.
This book is more than a cookbook, the first 5 chapters dig into the evidence-based benefits of eating MOSTLY plant-based including energy, disease prevention, weight loss/management, hair/skin/nail health, immunity, longevity, & so much more. Even though there are 100 recipes in this book (and over 170+ when counting variations), I am extremely proud of the first half of this book which digs into the science of mostly plant-based in a way that is easy to understand.
