There is a better way to protect our health, the planet, and the creatures that share our world—one that is inspiring and delicious. Love the Foods That Love You Back: Clean, Healthy, Vegan Recipes for Everyone, by food writer and advocate Cathy Katin-Grazzini, guides cooks through the delicious, nourishing power of plant-based foods across more than ninety recipes without oil, salt, meat, dairy, or sugar. Plants provide all the nutrients we require to repair and sustain the gut microbiome, to quell systemic inflammation, and neutralize free-radical damage—all root causes of chronic illness.

This book is for the food curious and people who like to cook as well as for home cooks who want to reinvigorate their repertoires and uncover the healing properties of food. One thing that Katin-Grazzini guarantees is that her recipes are sure to be crowd pleasers whether you’re an herbivore, carnivore, or omnivore. Offering tried-and-true advice for setting up for success, stocking a pantry, and mastering the building block recipes, she also serves up such tasty, global-inspired fare as Curly Tzatziki Salad, Pulled Barbecue Jackfruit, Early Spring Miso Soup, Pasta alla Puttanesca, and a Savory Torte with New Potatoes, Tomatoes, and Snap Beans.

Gorgeously rendered and uniquely flavorful, this cookbook presents a sustainable path forward to meet today’s daunting health, environmental, and ethical challenges one dish at a time.

Cathy Katin-Grazzini is Food Editor for VEGWORLD Magazine, and manages her blog, Cathy’s Kitchen Prescription, where she shares her latest recipes and guidance on sustainable, healthy, vegan cooking, nutrition, and lifestyle.

Certified in Plant-Based Nutrition from the T. Colin Campbell Center for Nutrition Studies at Cornell, she went on to complete professional culinary training at Rouxbe Cooking School. Katin-Grazzini is a member of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM) and trained as a PCRM Food for Life instructor. She and her husband Giordano Katin-Grazzini, who photographed this cookbook, live in Ridgefield, Connecticut.  Check out Cathy's awesome website: will be selling copies after the talk.  A portion of the proceeds go to Wilton Library.
