Being a vegan does not necessarily mean you are eating healthy food. Marketers want you to believe that if they put the word "vegan" on their package, it is automatically healthy. Nothing could be further from the truth. Fast-food fries and a soda are vegan. That is why it is important to understand the difference between good food and bad food. Whole-food plant-based eating is good for you. It is instinctive, based on fruits, vegetables, legumes, nuts, and whole grains. Common sense, and scientific studies, tell us that these foods should compose most of our diets for good health and longevity.

Many vegan cookbooks are filled with unhealthful, often complicated recipes that not only dont include much in the way of whole food but also contain piles of fat, salt, and sugar in one form or another. In contrast, this book offers recipes and tips on how to incorporate these foods into your everyday diet. It is meant for the beginner as well as experienced vegans wishing to expand their food repertoire. It also includes shopping advice, and tips on how to keep it up in social settings and outings, no matter how un-vegan your hometown may be.

For ease and speed, each recipe has two sections: the Essentials and Extra Detail. The Essentials serves as a minimum reminder of what you need to know to put the recipe together. The Extra Detail section gives expanded advice to follow the first time you make the recipe. Each recipe has a photo, so you have an idea of what the finished product should look like. The photos are not super glitzy, but do show what the food really looks like.

"Convenience is king in this cookbook, and most of the recipes are easy to prepare, even for novice cooks." -Kirkus Reviews. May 1, 2020
