I have a new book to explore and I'm pretty intrigued by it. If you haven't already guessed by the image above, it's Blissful Bites: Vegan Meals That Nourish Mind, Body, and Planet. Right out of the shoot, I'll tell you this book is for folks with a vigor for their veggies and get their groove on by eating super-fresh foods.
Top 5 reasons I dig this book
- Recipes are easy to read and most have mouthwatering photos.
- There's not one complicated recipe in the whole book.
- Comes with great information on pantry basics & tips to making nourishing food.
- LOVE all the information about ingredients that are new to me, but not hard to find.
- Recipes are organized by breakfast, appetizers, soup, salads & dressings, etc... and then the recipes within the categories are organized by the seasons. For example: Breakfast: Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, Anytime

There's more than 175 plant-based whole food recipes in Blissful Bites: Vegan Meals That Nourish Mind, Body, and Planet. Christy Morgan, along with the good people at Ben Bella Books, did a great job putting this appetizing cookbook together. I highly recommend it to my foodie friends that get excited about Asian inspired foods, and are in that place where they are learning to prepare more plant-based whole foods as much as they can get away with. ;D
