    Dreena Burton Explains How To "Let Them Eat Vegan"

    in Vegetarian

    When you make your own food from scratch, it is not only more economic but it helps you to connect with your food, where it comes from and who is growing it. The more that people choose to shop consciously, the better it is for the environment. Only when people understand the devastation caused by factory farms operating in a monoculture environment will they understand just how devastating the impact. That is why more and more people are making the transition to veganism. Plant based diets are not only more humane, they are healthier! In Dreena Burtons Let Them Eat Vegan: 200 Deliciously Satisfying Plant-Strong Recipes for the Whole Family you will find a myriad of easy to make, delectable recipes ranging from soups and burgers to wraps and ice cream!

    Have Fun Preparing Meals at Home with Nava Atlas

    in Health

    It's hard to argue with a plant-based diet when it benefits our waistline, wallet, and the well-being of our planet. Bestselling vegan cookbook author, Nava Atlas, joins us to share her most popular recipes, plant-based kitchen tips and the ultimate time-savers for vegans from her new book, “Plant Power.” As the founder of VegKitchen.com, the leading web resource for vegans and vegetarians alike, she busts the myth that cooking vegan meals is more complicated and less flavorful. 


    The relationship between health and food is not a new idea. As Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said in 460 BC, "Let food be thy medicine." Armed with the belief that a plant-based diet is essential to our well-being, Nava shares fun, flavorful recipes like Asian favorites and tortilla specialties.


    While you don’t have to know how to whip up a 5-course meal from scratch at a moment’s notice, Nava will share her solution to the dinner dilemma meal planning.  (You’ll probably also learn that cooking can be pretty joyful, too!) No longer only for those with unlimited free time, Nava gives us easy make-ahead tips to help you eat well even on your busiest days.


    Aside from the scrumptious recipes Nava will share, what is ultimately important is the overall message: it is time to begin to be more mindful of what, why and how you are eating for your health and well-being.
