Acclaimed and bestselling vegan author and creator of VegKitchen.com, Nava Atlas, delivers a beautiful must-have guide to transform your kitchen, plate, and life with the best nature has to offer, with more than 150 delicious and versatile plant-based recipes for every day of the year. Eating vegan doesn’t have to be about sacrifice and substitutions. With Plant Power, Nava Atlas celebrates the bounty of natural foods and teaches everyone—from committed vegans to those who just want more plants in their diet—how to implement a plant-based approach to their lives—easily, practically, and joyfully, every day.
Illustrated with 75 gorgeous color photographs (by Hannah Kaminsky) throughout, Plant Power focuses on the basics, from setting up a plant-powered pantry and fridge to choosing the best fresh foods for each season and streamlining daily meal preparation. Whether it’s a stir-fry using leftover veggies in the crisper, a fajita dinner to please different taste buds, yummy hummus wraps, or a pot of chili to savor on a cold winter evening, Plant Power takes the challenge out of meal-planning and makes it fun. Each of the fresh and flavor-packed recipes is easy to make and customizable, with tips on variations from turning up the heat and mixing up ingredients, to kid-friendly, gluten-free, and seasonal options. “By savoring and being grateful for the abundance of whole foods, a powerful message is conveyed,” Nava writes. “This is what we choose to eat; this is sustainable. And best of all, eating this way makes the world a better and more compassionate place.”
“Knowing Nava Atlas through this beautiful and practical book is like having a best friend who can cook. She understands natural foods and demystifies them completely. She welcomes you to the amazing world of plant-based dining, whether you’re a bit veg-curious or a full-fledged vegan. And she ensures that you’ll dine divinely, whether you love being in the kitchen or simply need to make dinner in, ideally, no time.”
