One Part Plant : A Simple Guide to Eating Real, One Meal at a Time (Hardcover) (Jessica Murnane)
about this item
Plant-based lifestyle blogger Jessica Murnane shares how she healed her body through food and offers more than 100 recipes and tips to show how others can easily—and deliciously—transition to a healthier lifestyle starting with just one plant-based meal a week.
A few short years ago, Jessica Murnane’s diet consisted of three major food groups: Sour Patch Kids, Diet Coke, and whatever Lean Cuisine had cheese. Then she became extremely ill with endometriosis—a painful chronic condition that affects reproductive health. To avoid the invasive surgery her doctors advised, she radically changed her diet. Following a friend’s suggestion, she eliminated meat, dairy, gluten, sugar, packaged foods, and alcohol—everything she loved. Within two weeks, something amazing happened: the pain from her endometriosis lessened dramatically.
But while her new diet had given her back her health, it didn’t allow for much fun. Jessica began spending hours in her kitchen, creating and testing new recipes that allowed her to enjoy healthier versions of tacos, cupcakes, ice cream, and other favorite foods—which she then posted to her blog. In One Part Plant, she shares what she’s learned on her journey to health, one plant at a time, offering 100 recipes for savory dishes, sweet treats, smoothies and tonics, fermented foods, and healthy snacks—all allergy friendly and dairy-free, gluten-free, and refined-sugar free.
Jessica makes it simple for anyone to enjoy the benefits of a plant-based lifestyle by starting out small: just one plant-based ingredient, and then one plant-based meal, at a time. And of course, she also makes it delicious, with recipes such as Easy Coconut Vegetable Curry; Butternut Squash and Cumin Lentil Tacos; Jalapeno Corn Bread; Double Chocolate Chia Pudding Cupcakes; Blueberry Skillet Cobbler; Chocolate Hazelnut Crispies; and Zucchini Bread Cookies with Pecans.
With pantry swaps, detailed recipe instructions, and unique and stylish full-color photography, One Part Plant is an inspiring and educational introduction to plant-based eating.
