Blissful Bites: Vegan Meals That Nourish Mind, Body, and Planet

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

  1. Recipes are easy to read and most have mouthwatering photos.
  2. There's not one complicated recipe in the whole book.
  3. Comes with great information on pantry basics & tips to making nourishing food.
  4. LOVE all the information about ingredients that are new to me, but not hard to find.
  5. 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
