Plant-Powered Families

Eating vegan does not have to be all beans and tofu.  It is surprisingly easy to get the whole family enjoying wonderful vegan meals together.  Plant-Powered Families by Dreena Burton is an amazing way to eat vegan everyday.
Veteran cookbook author Dreena Burton shows a whole foods, plant-based diet can be easy, delicious, and healthy for your entire family. In Plant-Powered Families, Burton shares over 100 whole-food, vegan recipes—tested and approved by her own three children. With tips for handling challenges that come with every age and stage—from toddler to teen years —Plant-Powered Families is a perfect reference for parents raising “weegans” or families looking to transition to a vegan diet.Burton shares advice and solutions from her own experience for everything from pleasing picky eaters and stocking a vegan pantry to packing school lunches and dealing with challenging social situations.Plant-Powered Families also includes nutritionist-approved references for dietary concerns that will ensure a smooth and successful transition for your own plant-powered family!

I was super-excited when I got this book.  The recipes are easy to follow, healthy and most importantly they taste wonderful.  The Chickpea Salad is not only a great way to pack some protein into a sandwich for lunch, I use it on a bed of lettuce to spice up a boring salad.  Shipshape Joes' are fun, tasty alternative to the Sloppy Joes we all ate and loved.  I actually like this healthy version even better.  For sweet tooths, there are plenty of great recipes (we are huge fans of the Fudgesicles made with cashew butter).  I find myself grabbing this every day and both my body and my taste buds have not looked back.  Added bonus: my skin and hair suddenly feel amazing....coincidence?  I think not!
