Amazon.comBarnes & NobleIndieBound

Kathy Freston wasn't born a vegan. The bestselling author and renowned wellness expert actually grew up on chicken-fried steak and cheesy grits. Not until her thirties did she embrace the lifestyle of a veganist -- someone who eats a plant-based diet not just for their own personal well-being, but for the whole web of benefits it brings to our ecosystem and beyond.

Now Kathy shows you how easy it is to gradually move toward a whole foods, plant-based lifestyle, to heal your body and start making the world a more livable place. It's about leaning into a healthy lifestyle simply by tweaking our very favorite meals so they are delicious and nutritious versions of the things we already love.

Step by step, the impact is incredible. Effortless weight loss, greatly lowered risk of (and even reversal of) major diseases such as cancer and diabetes, reducing your carbon footprint, feeding the global poor, spiritual awakening -- these are just a few of the profound changes that can be achieved through a gentle switch in food choices. Filled with compelling facts and Q&As with leading medical researchers, this optimistic and illuminating book will change the way you eat forever. No less delicious, still hearty and satisfying -- just better for you and for all.
