A NATIONAL BESTSELLER!
Trust in nature. Believe in balance. Eat the rainbow! Andrea Hannemann, aka Earthy Andy, presents a guide to plant-based eating that is simple, delicious, and fun.
INCLUDES A 30-DAY PLANT OVER PROCESSED CHALLENGE
Andrea Hannemann, known as Earthy Andy to her more than one million Instagram followers, believes that food is the fuel of life, and that consuming a nourishing, plant-based diet is the gateway to ultimate health. Andy’s mantra, “plant over processed,” embodies the way she eats and feeds her family of five in their home in Oahu, Hawaii.
But it wasn’t always this way. Andy was once addicted to sugar and convenience foods and suffering from a host of health issues that included IBS, Celiac disease, hypothyroidism, asthma, brain fog, and chronic fatigue. Fed up with spending time and money on specialists, supplements, and fad diets, she quit animal products and processed foods cold turkey, and embarked on a new way of eating that transformed her health and her body.
In Plant Over Processed, Andy invites readers to join her on a “30-Day Plant Over Processed Challenge” that will detox the body, followed by a long-term plan for going plant-based without giving up your favorite dishes. Packed with gorgeous photography and mouth-watering recipes—from smoothies and bliss bowls to plant-based comfort and decadent desserts—this life-changing guide takes you to the North Shore of Hawaii and back, showing you how easy it is to eat plant-based, wherever you are.
Earthy Andy blogger Hannemann offers a mix of detox challenges and inventive vegan recipes in her delightful debut. She writes of how she overcame chronic health issues including celiac disease, asthma, and hypothyroidism by going vegan, and though she doesn't provide scientific case studies to support her claims, she believes her diet was key to relieving her symptoms. To get started, she lays out a 30-day challenge to eliminate processed foods (which includes rules like "If you're hungry, eat!" and "Eat raw until dinner") and recommends consuming 80% of each day's calories from raw fruits and vegetables and 20% from cooked plant-based foods. The recipe chapter offers a tasty vegan ni oise salad, a nondairy coconut yogurt, a cauliflower chickpea masala, a pea smash (a twist on avocado toast), and raw chocolate mousse cake. Hannemann also gives readers a glimpse of her life via photos of her Oahu home and charming stories, such as about her move from Canada to Hawaii at 18 for college, where she quickly met and married her surfer husband. Vegan home cooks of all skill levels will want to take a look.
Loved this book so much! I went plant based in the past but didn’t stick to it. This book has given me the conviction to want to do it again and actually stick to it! The recipes seem so simple and delicious as well!
