Hungering for change? Then consider a diet of whole foods that are plant based. In her new book, A Plant-Based Life, Miceaela Cook Karlsen will take you there, step by step.

Karlsen shares that readers can arrive at a peaceful and successful place with eating and diet, just as she has. She addresses myriad nutritional concerns coupled with the common emotional baggage that prevents or hinders the changing of eating habits. She highlights the very quantifiable benefits of eating whole, plant-based foods that yield improved overall health and less illness, particularly cancer, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes.

A Plant-Base Life contains 100 plant-based recipes Karlsen has collected from her heroes, mentors, and friends, all of whom inspired her to adopt her new way of life. Her recipes range from homemade granola bars and cookies to smoothies, appetizers, soups, pizza, vegetable dishes, and desserts, including three weeks of meal plans as a starter kit. Karlsen includes a wealth of information beyond her own book, listing numerous resources such as social media, websites, additional reading, retreats, and residential programs that all support and encourage a plant-based diet to enlighten every reader.
