But this is more than just a cookbook—it’s a treasure chest that will help you build health-promoting habits and recipes of your own for a lifetime.

Available on Amazon and wherever books are sold. Be sure to check your local bookstore.




Pantry to Plate

Heather Crosby loves a good recipe, but most of the time, she simply cooks pantry-to-plate style. It’s an approach that takes stock of what you have on hand and what you’re in the mood for—and then, you improvise!

For example: Do you have some veggies, a protein, a binder, and some herbs and spices for flavor? Mix it up and you’ll have veggie burgers . . . no recipe required.

In this one-of-a-kind cookbook, Heather shares:
30 ingenious recipe templates to help you freestyle plant-packed, gluten-free meals and snacks on the fly: Breakfast Cookies, Bites & Tots, Tacos & Wraps, Hand Pies, and more.

Plus, 100 delicious recipes that show the templates in action, from Maple-Spiced Pear & Toasted Pecan Parfait (based on the Coconut Yogurt template) to Pesto Chickpea & Quinoa Scramble (based on the Scrambles template).

Available on Amazon and wherever books are sold. Be sure to check your local bookstore.
