Kim Campbell Proves That Taste and Health Can Be Best Friends
The power of a whole foods, plant-based diet to transform health is compelling. But even with ample demonstration of this effectiveness, people may be reluctant to move to an eating plan with unappealing food.
This is where The PlantPure Nation Cookbook comes in. Filled with over 150 delicious plant-based recipes, as well as stunning photos that will make you want to drop everything and run to the kitchen to prepare the recipe that looks like you most need it now, this cookbook will have just about everyone happy to chow down on plant-based meals.
Author Kim Campbell generously shares her discoveries from 25 years of cooking plant-based meals, much of that time also as a busy working mom. Her recipes are family-friendly, affordable, and appealing to those new to plant-based eating, as well as to those who have been thriving on whole food, plant-based choices for decades. Eating enjoyment is in no way sacrificed to keep out extracted oils and animal foods. The book's style is friendly and readable with clear instructions.
The PlantPure Nation Cookbook contains a wide variety of recipe flavors from around the world, including old favorites such as Mexican, Mediterranean, and Thai, as well as more unfamiliar choices, such as Ethiopian Stew. What all the recipes have in common is that they are prepared with whole foods: vegetables, fruits, beans, potatoes, whole grains, herbs, and spices. Nuts and seeds add texture and flavor in some of the recipes. The only processed ingredient you'll find is small amounts of sweetener in the desserts (hey, it's dessert!).
This cookbook is the official companion to the eye-opening documentary PlantPure Nation. This book is sprinkled with mini-essays about PlantPure Nation - the making of the film, the reality stars, the urgent need to revolutionize how Americans eat, and how to take health and farms back from agribusiness.
I was happy to be able to talk with Kim Campbell and ask her about the fascinating process of creating recipes. "I started cooking when I was 6 or 7 years old, " Kim shared.
