Brendan Brazier was talking about nutrient density years ago, and finally it's becoming a more well-known concept! He takes it further with this more focused cookbook, discussing nutrient density and it's affect on people, why it matters, and how it links to greater concepts, like the environmental toll of food production on the earth. Brazier dives into nutrition and it's relationship to health of the person and the planet, citing examples that are easy to understand and surprising.
The next section of the book is dedicated to the nutrient dense whole foods recipes that will make your health thrive. Breakfasts, salads, soups, sides, spreads, dips, sauces, dressings, main dishes, veggies, snacks, energy bars & gels, and finally - desserts! Included are favorite recipes from well-known vegan restaurants, plus a list of Brazier's favorite restaurants and cafes, and citations for all studies referenced in the book.
