My New Roots is the ultimate guide to revitalizing one’s health and palate, one delicious recipe at a time: no fad diets or gimmicks here.

Not long ago I reviewed Pure Food by Veronica Bosgraaf, and while I definitely enjoyed that book, My New Roots has everything that Pure Food lacked. The suggested retail price difference between the two books is $10. That’s not bad considering what you get. First of all the embossed hard cover is stunning. The use of the end papers was brilliant and eco-friendly. There are beautiful pictures on almost every page versus the 8 pages I got in Pure Food. My New Roots also features a techniques section that is super helpful, especially for those unfamiliar with ingredients. It also has a “Stocking the Pantry” section. This plant-based recipe book is broken down my seasons (Spring, Early Summer, Late Summer, Autumn, Winter) so you’re eating in the rhythm of the seasons. Each recipe uses symbols that indicate if a recipe is vegan, gluten-free, planning ahead, or an 8hr.+ preparation time – it’s another lovely addition. This one is sure to sit proudly on my shelf as I begin my journey to become vegetarian and eat a more plant based diet. I recommend this book to anyone and everyone who enjoys cooking and exploring with food.
