About the CookbookWith the guidance of professional plant-based chef Bailey Ruskus, chef, holistic nutrition, and health coach and founder of Chef Bai, adopting a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle is full of fun and flavor thanks to her new book, Cook. Heal. Go Vegan! (August 17, 2021; $22.99; Page Street Publishing, Co.) With Chef Bai's guidance, readers will learn how to make easy, nutrient-dense dishes while inviting purpose and intention into every meal.

Consider this collection a gateway into the colorful and delicious plant kingdom. Each recipe is designed to teach core culinary techniques, so readers can become confident and creative in the kitchen. Comforting classics -- think pizza, falafel, tacos, and curry -- get a vibrant vegan makeover, ensuring tasty alternatives for any craving. Savor Spaghetti Alfredo in an indulgent sauce; experience better-than-takeout Miso-Mushroom Ramen, low in sodium but big on umami; or dig into a chocolate-studded oatmeal cookie, packed with good-for-you ingredients. Fridge staples are made healthier and cheaper with essentials like Not Your Mama's Salted Butter, Herbed Creamy Feta, and Cashew-Hemp Milk. To encourage holistic healing from the inside out, most of Baily's recipes are gluten-free and all are free of refined sugars. Whether it's a quick garden bowl or slow-simmered chili, these dishes are fuss-free and seriously nourishing. Let Baily lead the way to embracing Earth's abundance, cooking consciously and feeling better than ever.
