5 Plant-Based Cookbooks to Buy TODAY

I love plants, and I love eating them, so I buy plant-based cookbooks. A lot. Sometimes I don’t even make any recipes from them, I just like to look at the pictures and drool.

(I might have a problem.)

But the following 5 books are books that I use all the time to create great and inventive plant-based meals for myself and my family. I strongly suggest you search them up on Amazon, take a look inside if that feature is available, and then buy them.

(Because you’ll want to after glancing at the food photography. Wow.)

The Blender Girl Cookbook

The Blender Girl

Let me begin by stating that good people create amazing cookbooks. Tess Masters is a lovely woman, whose heart and soul can be found living in bliss at the bottom of a Vitamix.

Full of creative, gorgeous recipes that taste as incredible as they look, this book encourages the intake of vegan nutrients by way of uber nutritious smoothies, sorbets, sauces, soups, and more.

Oh She Glows

oh she glows

I know—this one’s a goodie that everyone owns by now, right? But if you’re one of the few that don’t own it, you should.

Written by Angela Liddon, who’s also the food photographer, this book packs insane nutrients and incredible enthusiasm for plant-based foods into every single page. I like the U.S. cover better than the Canadian one, and was disappointed to have been delivered the latter, but beggars can’t be choosers—and I was begging for this book.

My New Roots

my new roots

This lovely book has the most beautiful photographs. Honestly. Any plant-based cookbook that includes edible flowers in their recipes get a giant thumbs up from me. It’s so pretty, I want to display it on a shelf in my living room, but my husband won’t let me.

Seriously.

Thug Kitchen

Thug Kitchen

I’m not going to lie: I bought this book because of the persistent profanity. Who expects to open a cookbook and read “Slowly whisk in the milk so that shit doesn’t get all lumpy. SLOWLY, MOTHERFUCKER.” (Page 23.)

It had me at “Pay. Fucking. Attention.” (Page xiv.) Or “Eat like you give a fuck.” (Cover.)

So I paid attention, and loved the book. The recipes are simple and delicious and ridiculously entertaining to follow. I think I’ve purchased about 8 copies as gifts, alone. If you or someone you know loves to peruse plant-based cookbooks, this one’s highly recommended if only for the shock factor. (Which it won’t be, because the recipes are truly delicious.)

Vegetarian Comfort Foods

Vegetarian Comfort Foods

Yep—I’m unapologetically plugging my own work. Officially being released on August 4, this labour of love consists of over 75 plant-based recipes that are designed to be kind to your digestive tract. A follow-up to my first book, Happy Healthy Gut, Vegetarian Comfort Foods provides recipes, meal plans, and tons of insight about how to care for a touchy bowel.

If you or anyone that you know suffers from stomach disorders such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome), Crohn’s disease, colitis, and diverticulitis, this plant-based cookbook can help.

The Sprouted Kitchen Bowl and Spoon

Bowl and Spoon

Part of the Sprouted Kitchen series by Sara Forte, this book looks like it’s right up my alley. It’s plant-based, inventive, creative and earthy home-cooking.

LOVE.

Ummm…you’re welcome! xo

 

Kris Carr's Crazy, Sexy, Cancer

crazy sexy cancer

I read Crazy, Sexy, Diet by this woman years ago, and thought it was SOOOO inspirational. But before that book was this one, and the accompanying documentary. Below is the 8 minute trailer, and it’s well worth a watch.

Kris Carr was diagnosed with stage 4 terminal cancer, and stopped the disease it its tracks by going on a journey of yoga, spirituality and adopting a plant-based diet. Buddah has been quoted as saying “Every human being is the author of his own health or disease.”

Watch and see if you agree. xo
