"Be a plant-based woman warrior" by Jane Esselstyn & Ann Esselstyn... (book review)

Be a plan-based woman warrior: live fierce, stay bold, eat delicious

by Jane Esselstyn & Ann Esselstyn

Paperback, 320 pages, 12 Chapters

I am absolutely in love with the Esselstyn family cookbook! Their plant-based lifestyle has been going strong for three generations, and it's all thanks to Ann Esselstyn's creative recipes that are completely dairy and meat-free. I was so inspired to learn that Ann started making these amazing meals over thirty years ago, after her husband's research showed how diet can reverse disease. Her daughter Jane is equally passionate about the plant-based lifestyle and together, they have become incredible advocates for it, reaching thousands through their books and YouTube channel.
What's even more amazing is that Ann and Jane are both in incredible health, despite being 86 and 56 years old, respectively. They spend their days hiking, doing yoga, gardening, cooking, and spreading the message that diet is the key to living a happy, strong, and disease-free life. Their cookbook, Be a Plant-Based Woman Warrior, is a testament to this legacy and an inspiration to women everywhere to take control of their own health.

The cookbook is filled with over 125 delicious and nutritious recipes that are perfect for busy women (and not only women!) on the go. From Apple Flax Flapjacks to Black Ramen Bowls, to Portabella Sliders with Green Goddess Sauce, to Mint Chip Outta Sight Brownies, there's something for everyone. And for those who may be skeptical about vegetable-focused meals, there are big-flavored dinners like Sweet Potato and Cashew Ricotta Lasagna and Plant-Based Pad Thai that are sure to tempt even the most reluctant eaters. My personal favourite are all those salad dressings - taking the mix of fresh veggies into another level!

What I enjoy most about this cookbook is that it's not just about the food, it's about the joy and energy that comes from living a plant-based lifestyle. The Esselstyn family table is a place where plants and happiness are at the center, and this cookbook brings that energy to life. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to improve their health and embrace a delicious plant-based diet!

I paid for this book myself and was not reimbursed for this review in any way at all. The above opinion is purely my own.
