Separated into seasonal recipes, this book gives you all the tools you need to eat healthy all year round.The Plant-Based Cookbook is a guide to delicious recipes for the growing movement of people that are consuming less and less meat in favor of consuming food that comes straight from the earth.

Food Facts are included throughout to explain all of the wonderful vitamins and nutrients in the fruits, vegetables, and seeds used to make these plant-based recipes. Every recipe is classified with a slew of dietary parameters for those who are looking to be gluten free, raw, sugar free, unprocessed, soy free, or grain free in addition to being vegan

By removing meat and most processed foods, a plant-based diet focuses on whole foods that are packed with nutrients and low in trans fats. This type of diet is ideal for body-builders or endurance athletes who need the carbohydrates in vegetables for energy more than the protein and trans fat of meat that builds muscle but can also slow them down. Plant based diets treat food like preventative medicine. By eating plant based meals consistently, studies have shown that people employing a plant based diet showed increases in energy, stronger memory as they aged, lower levels of obesity, lower rates of systemic inflammation in healthy participants, and lower rates of type-2 diabetes patients. Additionally, rates of heart disease were 22% lower in vegetarians. When you focus on only putting good food into your body, the clean-food detox is an excellent way to lose weight healthily and keep it off in a sustainable way.

Join the growing movement of healthy, plant-based living and see for yourself what all the fuss is about. Treat your body with the kindness it craves and adopt a plant-based diet!

Author Biography

Melissa Petitto, RD, was raised around an eclectic collection of food in Birmingham, Alabama. With two seemingly diverse cultures that center life around the kitchen, Petitto gained an early appreciation for food and its impact on a person’s life. Attending Johnson & Wales University, Melissa Petitto was afforded the opportunities of working for The Governor’s House Inn as the bed and breakfast chef and at Cooking Light magazine in the test kitchen. To enhance her skills and opportunities, she furthered her education at Emory University Hospitals with a dietetic internship. Upon passing her registered dietician’s exam, Petitto made the move to New York City to pursue her career goal of becoming a personal chef.
After twelve years in the city, Petitto recently made the move west, now calling Santa Barbara, California, home, and became the personal chef she had envisioned herself to be with an A-list clientele. In recent years, she has traveled to teach cooking classes and works at the Hilton Head Health Institute, a premier weight loss spa, where she lectures, presents food demonstrations, and consults with individual clients in attendance in addition to traveling to York, Maine, to teach classes at the well-known Stonewall Kitchen Cooking School.
Petitto is the author of Acai Super Berry CookbookAn Apple A Day, 30 Minute Paleo Meals, and Red Hot Sriracha. She collaborated with Hilaria Baldwin on The Living Clearly Method. Whether cooking dinner for an individual client or a dinner party of twenty-five, Melissa Petitto exudes the passion she feels for nutritious food and its role in a family’s life.
