With the guidance of professional plant-based chef Bailey Ruskus, adopting a whole-food, plant-based lifestyle is full of fun and flavor. Learn to make easy, nutrient-dense dishes you’ll want again and again, while inviting purpose and intention into every meal.

Consider this collection a gateway into the colorful and delicious plant kingdom. Each recipe is designed to teach core culinary techniques, so you can become confident and creative in the kitchen. Comforting classics—think pizza, falafel, tacos and curry—get a vibrant vegan makeover, ensuring tasty alternatives for any craving. Savor Spaghetti Alfredo in an indulgent sauce that won’t weigh you down; experience better-than-takeout Miso-Mushroom Ramen, low in sodium but big on umami; or dig into a chocolate-studded oatmeal cookie, packed with good-for-you ingredients. Fridge staples are made healthier and cheaper with essentials like Not Your Mama’s Salted Butter, Herbed Creamy Feta and Cashew-Hemp Milk. To encourage holistic healing from the inside out, most of Bailey’s recipes are gluten-free and all are free of refined sugars.

Whether it’s a quick garden bowl or slow-simmered chili, these dishes are fuss-free and seriously nourishing. Let Bailey lead the way as you embrace Earth’s abundance, cook consciously and feel better than ever.
