The health and weight loss benefits of the flexitarian lifestyle-eating primarily vegetarian foods while still allowing everyday consumption of high-quality animal products such as grass-fed meat and fish-are also explored. Fresh ideas and recipes for today's food tastes range from elaborate to simple, including a mix of upscale comfort foods, ethnic cuisine, and gourmet meals for just about any occasion and any time of day.

What might surprise readers is how inviting the text is simply by the ease at which it can be applied to anyone's life. The Larsons open this lovely resource with a primer which explains why "whole food" living is the only way to achieve ideal health. They help individuals learn to set the foundation for making every bite count; what it means to be a "flexitarian" by eating vegetarian part-time; learning to spot the fake and phony processed foods; feeling satisfied by curing food cravings and hunger pangs; and relishing those pure indulgences that might be better for you than you think. Completely delicious in every way, readers will be eager to experiment with Ivy's recipes that come served with helpful tags that detail the prep time and complexity level of each one. Ivy presents countless meal options for any type of meal whether it be family casual or formal entertaining. This cookbook is a keeper...for life, every healthy day of it.
