If you are ready to start creating a more healthy lifestyle then you need to read my favorite plant-based diet cookbook list. My list is continually growing because I’m a little old school in that I love sitting down with a book in my hand browsing through and marking all the delicious looking recipes I want to try.
Today it is simple to hop on Pinterest and search for a great plant-based diet recipe however there is something special about holding a physical cookbook, learning the story behind the recipe and getting to know the author’s story. It amazes me the variety of ways people have come to choose a plant-based diet for their lifestyle. Many are due to a disease in their body, some just wanted to feel better and others realized they were going to be sick if they did not make a lifestyle change.
Plant-Based Diet Favorite Cookbooks
An Instant Pot has become my new favorite kitchen appliance. It creates meals super quick compared to stove top or oven cooking. I also like how it seals in flavors to create delicious meals.
So when I saw The Ultimate Vegan Cookbook For Your Instant Pot by Kathy Hester it magically jumped into my cart. She does a great job at the beginning of the book teaching you how to use an Instant Pot if you are a beginner and then starts you out with five easy recipes to get you comfortable with the Instant Pot.
She then shares quick and easy homemade staples to save you money and then gives you chapters on beans, whole grains, vegetables, comforting one-pot meals, layered meals and of course Instant Pot desserts.
