I’ve been cooking and posting almost exclusively about cookbooks for the last two months, and have especially loved immersing myself in so many other diverse and unique points of views and cooking styles and writing about them. So when the kind folks over at FSB Associates sent me a copy of the newly released The Forks Over Knives Plan: A 4-Week Meal-By-Meal Makeover, I was more than happy to continue along on that theme into this month.
Vegans are vegans for a variety of reasons, but I eat this way for reasons that are purely ethical—the health benefits are just a bonus. But sometimes I get into a rut, and eat too much processed food, not enough vegetables or skip meals altogether, especially when I’m busy or stressed. That’s why books like The Forks Over Knives Plan are not only useful to me, but also to anyone who needs a clear and simple plan for getting their diet back on track.
Written by Doctors Alona Pulde and Matthew Lederman, this plan focuses on hearty comfort foods that don’t involve portion control or measuring single nutrients. Week One focuses on breakfast, Week Two on lunch, Week Three on dinner, ending on Week Four, which offers tips on how to successfully maintain the diet.
Included are 100 recipes that embrace whole- and plant-based food, and are packed with freshness, color and simplicity. I tried the plan’s South-of-the-Border Pizza, which uses enchilada sauce in place of traditional tomato sauce, black beans, red pepper, creamy avocado and fresh cilantro. This recipe is a good representation of the book and recipes within it—it’s simple, accessible, colorful and easy.
Because I love the concept of this book as well as this recipe, I’m excited that FSB has kindly offered to give away one copy of this beautiful hardcover cookbook to one reader through this post!

Have your seen the forks over knives online cooking course? 3 mos! I took it, is amazing!!!
I would so love to own a copy of that book, although I may be too late! I'm really struggling right now with a favorite quick and easy recipe. I get home at night and am just not motivated. I guess I would use an old throwback to non-vegan days. Brown rice and black beans mixed with cumin and garlic. Put into a tortilla, smothered with salsa, rolled and baked until warm and crunchy.
i just found your blog via a series of clicks and i'm already smitten with the photos, i can't wait to look around some more. a number of years ago i concocted a soup from what i had just lying around the kitchen, a spicy red lentil soup that has become my go to for lunch when i'm home alone since i'm the only one in the house who likes lentils.
I love kale and northern beans with garlic and olive oil!
