“Whether you’re cooking from these bright, cheery, and delicious recipes or listening to the OPP podcast, Jessica makes vegetables shine and is an upbeat companion to have in your kitchen.” (Terry Walters, bestselling author of Clean Food)
“The most approachable book on plant-based eating that I’ve seen in a very long time. Jess’s realness and humor pour from every page, and the recipes are inspiring and delicious. This is a true guide to transitioning to a plant-based diet without dogma, but celebration! High five, Jess.” (Sarah Britton, author of My New Roots and Naturally Nourished)
“One Part Plant makes the compelling case for eating one plant-based meal per day. But after seeing Jessica’s mouth-watering recipes, one may not be enough. I’ll be giving this book to everyone I love.” (Andie Mitchell, author of the New York Times bestseller It Was Me All Along and Eating in the Middle: A Mostly Wholesome Cookbook)
From the Back Cover
We hear the advice all the time: eat more plants. But most of us ignore it. Jessica Murnane used to be one of those people. A few short years ago, her diet consisted of three major food groups: Sour Patch Kids, Diet Coke, and whatever Lean Cuisine contained the most cheese. But when her endometriosis, a chronic and painful condition, left her desperate for help, she overhauled her diet and focused on eating whole, plant-based foods—real foods. Within months, she began to feel like herself again.
With a unique style and a playful tone, Jessica shares what she’s learned on her way to eating real. She won’t ask you to change your diet radically or adhere to a strict eating philosophy—just to commit to eating one plant-based meal each day. That’s it.
Jessica keeps it simple and, most important, delicious—with 100 allergy-friendly recipes like Creamy Mushroom Lasagna, Easy Vegetable Curry Bowls, Triple Berry Skillet Cobbler, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. One Part Plant gives you the tools you need to easily and deliciously make plants the star of your plate—no matter how much junk food occupies it now.

I only have one small criticism. On pg. 9 in the intro, the author explains that it was a compliment when another woman told her that she liked her recipes because she was a "real woman," and not super thin. I think this kind of talk is negative. You just cannot be body positive about yourself while putting down other body types. Super thin women are "real women" too. I'm a big girl and I believe all body types are great.
When the book arrived, I found it aesthetically beautiful and loved that Jessica weaved story throughout her book. The pantry essentials section really helped me to identify some healthier alternatives to my existing pantry staples, several of which I've already incorporated as regularly stocked items. Then, there's the recipes. Besides being fantastic, they are very approachable, with a reasonable number of ingredients and limited prep time.
A few of my favorite recipes are Crunchy Chunky Granola; White Bean Buffalo Hummus; Za'Atar Swirl Bread; Roasted Carrots with Pesto; Quinoa Taco Salad; Black-Eyed Peas and Greens; and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. I've made most of these several times. My husband, whose preferences are certainly not plant-based, has enjoyed these meals and even has a few favorites of his own.
One of the things that I love about Jessica's approach is her willingness to share what's worked for her, in hopes that it may help others. Without pushing her lifestyle on anyone else or making proclamations of the health outcomes of a plant-based diet, she simply invites you to make room for some plant-based meals into your life each week by offering an accessible path forward.
I have certainly benefited from finding ways to incorporate more plants into my meals. Through Jessica's podcast, One Part Podcast, she has inspired me to find ways to not only manage my endometriosis symptoms, but to exert greater influence on my health overall through lifestyle changes. This podcast has led me to find other inspirational individuals whose cookbooks or blogs I've added to my collection, which are helping to guide me along my journey and keeping it interesting.

This book follows the momentum of eating one plant-based meal a day. It's very non-prescriptive and allows individuals to eat based on how the body feels. I like that along with drool worth recipes and high quality photos, it has great anecdotes on what it was like to change a diet, how to inspire others around you, how to order plant-based at a restaurant and how much to season with salt. I laughed reading a lot of her recipes with her down to earth banter and Drake references. The fact that it is almost out of stock in it's first week of publication should also give you an idea of how wildly popular it will become!
I found this book because I fell in love with Jessica's podcast, One Part Podcast, and it was at a time when I really needed some education, support, and inspiration for changing my eating habits to accommodate having an autoimmune disease. When I got the book, I sat down with a cuppa tea and read the entire thing, cover to cover, and while I did that I thought of a friend of mine who would love this book so the only time I put it down was to order another copy and send it to my friend. This is so much more than a cookbook, and you don't have to have an autoimmune disease to love it either.
