The book is conveniently divided into Snacks & Appetizers, Breakfast, Lunch & Brunch, Main Meals, Sides, and Sweets & Treats so you’ll be able to find recipes to suit your cravings at any time of the day. The author, Catherine Gill, is a self-proclaimed “Dirty Vegan”, meaning she eats vegan, but not always “clean” as she still enjoys the rich, indulgent foods that clean eating would exclude. In her book, she talks about her journey of finding plant alternatives to meat and dairy products while growing up in an Italian family that used mostly animal products in their hearty, delicious home cooking. Her book is a wonderful marriage of comfort food that will satisfy you made with alternatives that will still keep your recipes free from animal products.
