Over the last decade, Americans have become increasingly aware of the health benefits of eating whole foods. But while we're all looking to reduce our reliance on processed foods and eat fewer animal products, one thing has been missing: a cookbook that makes it easy and affordable (not to mention, delicious) to live a plant-based lifestyle.
Enter celebrity chef and health crusader Rocco Dispirito. He knows firsthand that a plant-based diet can deliver real results for weight loss and overall health, and he's on a mission to make healthy eating accessible to everyone once and for all. In Rocco's Healthy and Delicious, he offers more than 250 recipes featuring wholesome dishes that use fresh, local, organic ingredients.

All of these recipes are plant-based, and most importantly: delicious.
