Book Review: The Plant-Based Journey by Lani Muelrath
The Plant-Based Diet is such a good book. I rarely start a book review with my conclusion, but just in case you don't read the whole review, I want you to know that this one is a winner.
The author, Lani Muelrath, has demonstrated a real feel for the needs of her readers. I know that it's not an easy task to transition to a plant-based diet. She has organized this book logically in a simple format that facilitates this transition while providing a wealth of scientific-based evidence on which to make your decisions as you travel this path.
Lani Muelrath does not intend your journey to be along a straight line. Rather, readers will come away with a more realistic notion that they should expect to take a few steps forward and a couple back during the transition. The importance of knowing realistically what to expect will help readers avoid abandoning their journey.
To give readers the information needed, she presents a keen understanding of some of the difficulties in going plant based and provides great suggestions on how to handle..
eating out (restaurants, eating at a friend's house, parties, etc.)
making the transition with children
eating while away from home
And what to do about…
exercise (what and how much)
revamping your pantry
grocery shopping, including shopping lists to get your new way of cooking/eating up and going
The beauty of this book is that Muelrath presents these topics as if speaking to the reader and offers suggestions in manageable bites. If you are transitioning to a plant-based diet or are on an on and off plant-based relationship, please take a look at The Plant-Based Journey. You won't regret it. It is helpful and comprehensive.
