Plant-based Inspiration

Back in 2009, when I first started dipping my toes into plant-based eating, there wasn't a lot of vegan meal inspiration out there. I was blindly navigating the course, trying to make towering plates of vegetables appealing (...my love for veggies runs deep, but I needed some innovation). Few people were vegan (or at least it felt that way) and I was figuring out how to make this way of eating exciting on my own.

Over the last 8 years, the plant-based community has grown exponentially and made themselves known. Now with plenty of people on the 'scene', luckily, we have endless dinner ideas to make appetizing meals that will nourish our families.

I've compiled a list of my favorite cookbooks; some vegan, some not (read my stance on 'mostly' here). I hope they bring inspiration to your tables, proving that healthy, often plant-based, eating does not need to be boring.
