How to Eat More Plants – Book Review

Before I get into the details of the book, I would like to point out that the recipes are not vegan but only plant-based. The title may be a little misleading. But the author also explains what plant-based means to her.

“How to Eat More Plants. Transform Your Health with 30 Plant-Based Foods per Week (and Why It’s Easier Than You Think)” by Dr. Megan Rossi is a guidebook and plan for those who want to change their diet.

The book is informative and educative. The author incorporates a lot of knowledge and facts, and she does it in a friendly way. It is like a compendium of a plant-based diet and health-related information.

The first part explains what Plant-Based Eating means. The author talks about the gut and the importance of fiber. And why it is necessary to go plant-based. What are the benefits of a plant-based diet?
She incorporates “Plant Points” as a way to eat more plants. Each plant counts as one point. There are plans and ideas for weekly meals.

The second part of the book contains recipes. A lot of them call for eggs. I think you could substitute them with egg substitutes in most of the recipes. You will find ideas for breakfast, treats, lunches, dinners, and much more. Dinner recipes often call for fish or chicken, or another kind of meat.

I am vegan, so the recipes aren’t aimed at me. I may try some recipes that are vegan or when it is easy to substitute non-vegan ingredients.

I found the first part of the book very useful. I am sure I will be going back to it often.

Thank you The Experiment for a review copy of this book.
