☀️ Join us for Sonoran Sunshine, a rejuvenating 6-night nutrition & lifestyle medicine retreat

From a creative team that includes the producer and writer of Forks Over Knives, the documentary film PlantPure Nation captures the inspiring story of plant-based nutrition’s impact on a small town in the rural South and the effort to bring about historic political change. As the film’s official companion cookbook, The PlantPure Nation Cookbook brings this powerful, science-based approach to nutrition from the big screen to your kitchen with some of the same mouthwatering recipes that kick-started the revolution, promoting the health benefits of a whole food, plant-based diet. Recipes are reprinted from The PlantPure Nation Cookbook by arrangement with BenBella Books. Copyright © 2015, Kim Campbell.
