Sharon Palmer - Plant-Powered for Life

A cookbook-slash-handbook to help anybody make plant-powered eating a habit and enjoy lasting, vibrant health-the fun way!

Researchers agree: The best foods for health are whole-plant foods. But for veg-curious omnivores and junk-food vegans alike, it's not easy to move away from the standard American diet toward eating more vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and other minimally processed plants.

In Plant-Powered for Life ($18.95), Sharon Palmer, RD, presents a straightforward, delicious way to meet the challenge. She urges readers to set a personal goal and take one step closer to it every week. Each chapter-from "Aim for at least 6 servings of veggies" to "Give sprouted grains a try"-includes a call to action, a clear, concise explanation, and two to three globally inspired recipes, which cover every meal, course, and season.

With this guide, anyone can forge new habits, cook great food, and enjoy a healthy plant-powered life-one tasty step at a time.
 
Sharon Palmer, RD, is a registered dietitian, editor of the award-winning health newsletter Environmental Nutrition, and a nationally recognized nutrition expert who has personally impacted thousands of people’s lives through her writing and clinical work. She lives outside of Los Angeles with her husband and two sons.
