The Everything Plant-Based Meal Prep Cookbook: 200 Easy, Make-Ahead Recipes Featuring Plant-Based Ingredients is easy to read and follow that focuses on recipes that are easy to plan, prep for, make-ahead to put in the fridge for the week, or frozen for future meals.

This is a great cookbook for anyone thinking or wanting to switch to more of a plant-based diet and is a little overwhelmed where to start. It’s great for anyone looking for recipes for those meatless days or for anyone who follows a

Cue the music because I am cooking up a storm. I am crazy about this book and can you blame me? This book is amazing and I love the recipes and the commentary. However I would have liked the book more if it had more pictures some of the recipes had no pictures and that depicts a cookbook in my opinion. I highly recommend it for anyone that wants to start or incorporate more plant based dishes. Huge thanks to the publisher for my ARC in exchange of an honest review

The Everything Plant-Based Meal Prep Cookbook by Diane K. Smith

200 Easy, Make-Ahead Recipes Featuring Plant-Based Ingredients

Long ago my mother told me that if a cookbook provides ONE recipe that you use over and over or that you make one time and want to repeat then it is well worth the money spent. This book has more than one recipe I would like to make, and I have a feeling some would be added to my list of repeated meals.

Before the book begins there is a note that all books in this series h

Diane's book is beautifully done and all the recipes are delicious but also healthy! I'm so happy to add this to my collection and know I'll be using many of these recipes more than once.

I really appreciate the way this book is organized. And it has just about everything. Condiments, mains, sides, breakfasts, lunches, appetizers ... there are a LOT of recipes here and loads of helpful information. Loaded Tahini-Spiced Potato Skins, Oil-Free Basil Pesto, Beet Hummus, Raspberry scone Muffins are j

I cannot wait to buy this cookbook! As someone who loves eating and planning, I can tell I’m going to get a lot of use from this book.

I’ve always wanted to meal prep, but it seems so overwhelming. This book gives you all the tools you need to get started. Not only is the book filled with healthy plant-based recipes that sound delicious, there’s also practical information on how to manage the actual meal prepping, storing, and reheating.

Whether you’re interested in making a lifestyle change, or
I adore reading through cookbooks and this one is a novelty for me. It focuses specifically on the benefits and the risks of a plant-only, based diet. The risk is vitamin B12 deficiency, that can be avoided if aware of the risk. The benefits are vast. The issue is, how feasible is this sort of diet within the confines of the routines of life? With the information and recipes located in this book, this appears to be a dietary change that is doable. There are delicious recipes throughout the book ...more

When life for the entire universe and planet turns on its end and like everyone else you "have nothing to do" while your place of work is closed and you are continuing to be in #COVID19 #socialisolation, superspeed readers like me can read 300+ pages/hour, so yes, I have read the book … and many more today.

I requested and received a temporary digital Advance Reader Copy of this book from #NetGalley, the publisher and the author in exchange for an honest review.

The Everything Plant-Based Meal Prep Cookbook is a tutorial and recipe guide for meal-prep developed for the whole food plant-based diet written by Diane K. Smith.

Wow! Such an amazing cookbook! I am overwhelmed by how good this book is. There are so many plant-based and vegan cookbooks out there, and as with cookbooks in general, you better check it out before you buy it. This one though I can thoroughly recommended to anyone! A lot of useful information, for example about organic food and different oils.

First there’s a short introduction to what plant-based means, what to eat, what to avoid, and why. Great information, to the point, and no nonsense. I am

The beginning of this book is packed with a lot of great information, for example how to cook without oil, why soy isn't bad for you, how to eat beans every day, what whole food sweeteners you should use, how to make seitan at home, as well as substitutions for things like eggs, dairy, etc. Then you get into the recipe section of the book which is quite large. I was really happy to see she didn't include many salad recipes (eating vegan is SO much more than just salad!) but she did include a lar ...more

FINALLY! Someone has finally decided to put a list of egg substitutes in a book!!! What took so long? As a fan of the plant based diet I love how this book is laid out and what information has been included in it. A metric conversion chart is extremely helpful especially for future reference.

I found myself essentially wanting to make every other recipe in this book which is always a good sign for me. I will probably be purchasing this as soon as it comes out.

You asked for it....everything plant based and part meal prep. The majority of the cookbook is recipes not exactly meal prep. Big assortment of plant based recipes but I would have liked more pictures.

What did I like? Some very helpful tidbits about cooking rice that I did not know about which made this an eye opener cookbook. Still I bookmarked a few recipes to try even though I’m not a strict vegan or plant based eater. I still like the occasional seafood or meat. I still have a weak spot for

With hundreds of recipes, the Everything Plant-based Meal Prep Cookbook has you covered. There are twenty-five salad recipes alone!

The book doesn’t waste a thing. Who knew that the water in a can of chickpeas had a name? Aguafaba. The Beet Hummus was innovative and tasty too!

I did feel that there wasn’t much meal prep advice in the Everything Plant-based Meal Prep Cookbook. Plus the recipes were mostly not for items that can be eaten in different forms (like a stew that can be used in a burrito

Thank you to NetGalley, Adams Media, and the author for this advanced reading copy. The opinions in this review are my own.
I really enjoyed this cookbook a lot! The recipes aren't overly complicated & are made with mostly common ingredients. I've read several cookbooks lately that claimed to be "plant-based" but had animal products, so THANK YOU for being truly plant based. I also really appreciated that the recipes are mostly whole foods based, and oil-free (I loathe vegan cookbooks that use co

Decent cookbook with an introduction to plant-based eating. Every recipe has nutritional information, which is a huge plus. Because of the title, I thought there would be more info about meal prepping, but it had some information in the beginning before it gets to the recipes. Very well organized. Not many photos. Many of the recipes use tofu or soy milk, which was a bit disappointing to me as I cannot eat those and would love to find more plant-based books out there without that, but overall of ...more

The recipes on this book are SO yummy and so easy to make it's unbelievable! I've been wanting to eat more plant-based for a while now and this is definitely an amazing resource. I really enjoyed the first part of the book and all the suggestions on how to replace not-plant-based-food such as eggs on recipes. The design of the book is enjoyable, everything is easy to read and I appreciate the little tab on every recipe with info about calories and stuff. Would definitely recommend to anyone who ...more
I received a copy of this book through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

This book was around 3.5 stars for me.

I enjoy cook books with pictures of the recipes and while there are plenty of recipes in this book it's lacking in photos. There's recipes for everything from smoothies to desserts making this a thorough cook book.

This book uses cashew cheese and other kinds of non-dairy cheeses that I'm not a fan of, it's a lot of adapting other recipes to be plant based instead of recipes th

A good, basic cookbook with many different kinds of recipes. All the recipes are healthy ones and they include calorie contents as well. Also there are good meal prep ideas and suggestions in the beginning of the book which are helpful in my opinion.

This would be especially a good cookbook for those who are taking on a plant based diet for health reasons and are trying to lose weight. However, there are many good recipes here for all people, I think, no matter what "diet" they are following.

This is a great Plant-based cookbook. There are so many recipes and it's a very well organized and clear book. Not all the recipes have photos but the ones that do have it are very beautiful. Every recipe have a per serving information box with info about calories, fat, carbs, fiber, sugar, sodium and protein and there are some tips as well.

The Shakti Witch
This is the perfect go to cookbook for anyone considering a plant based diet. Explanations and health benefits are clearly and concisely explained followed by 200 excellent recipes.

Recipes include breakfast, lunch and dinner. Along with sauces and desserts. Each recipe also has the accompanying nutritional information. A 2 week meal plan is also included.

A wonderful resource for those of the veggie persuasion or even those who just want to up their veggie intake.

Getting organised is a real chore for me, so this was a great way to get myself planning my meals and having things ready to go in the fridge and freezer.

Lots of helpful recipes for breakfasts, lunch, snacks, etc. With some sauce/dips to make the same meals taste that bit slightly different.

3/5 stars!

I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I liked that there is an introduction to what is a plant-based diet and definition of different terms. There are also some pictures of the final product from the recipes. I just wished all recipes have pictures with them.

A great cookbook! I want to get more vegetables into my daily diet and this cookbook shows how. The recipes are basic and can be made with foods already on hand. I recommend to anyone interested in starting a plant based diet or anyone just looking for new recipe options.
