Marcela Benson’s Love, Peace, and Vegetables: Recipes for Conscious Living is an enticing, appetizing, and visually appealing cookbook that promotes healthy eating and the healing properties of a well-structured meal. This is a collection of 150 recipes that are conceived from the heart with the intent to provide healthier alternatives to the common meals we have been accustomed to consuming. Benson has mastered the craft of low-glycemic cuisine through her understanding of Live-Food preparation that brings us to a profound understanding of the vegan lifestyle. The book begins with the story of the author’s personal life and struggles, and how it led her to discover the merits of a healthy diet. Moreover, the book also shows you how to willingly choose the path toward positive change and adapt transformational steps to health according to your own pace.
With her devotion to Live-Food and veganism, Marcela Benson is revolutionizing the cookbook industry with recipes that are not only honest but are prepared with love as seen through her artistic and scientific details. Having a sweet tooth, I particularly enjoyed preparing two of her Live-Food desserts—the vanilla thumbprint cookies and spice chocolate cream pie. The preparation of these recipes feels like a sacred act in itself. Try the recipes for yourself and you realize that you are experiencing the fusion of science, art, and love through eating. Love, Peace, and Vegetables is an indispensable reference for any culinary scholars, chefs, homemakers, and even food critics, as it strongly weighs in on recognizing the role of food in our holistic view of the human body. Reassuring and easy to follow, this is the cookbook to consider for healthy appetite and pleasure.
