"Registered Dietitian Sharon Palmer wrote a book that is much like a superfood: dense with the good stuff. The abundance of information in the first half is worth its weight in kale, then followed by 75 of the author’s own, family-tested recipes. This is a tome ideal for flexitarians and new vegans who are still learning.”

Palmer is welcoming to her readers as she provides solutions for eating in a more health-promoting way. I recommend this as a resource for anyone seeking a healthier diet.”
