Holistic nutritionist and highly-regarded blogger Sarah Britton presents a refreshing, straight-forward approach to balancing mind, body, and spirit through a diet made up of whole foods.
     Sarah Britton's approach to plant-based cuisine is about satisfaction--foods that satiate on a physical, emotional, and spiritual level. Based on her knowledge of nutrition and her love of cooking, Sarah Britton crafts recipes made from organic vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, lentils, nuts, and seeds. She explains how a diet based on whole foods allows the body to regulate itself, eliminating the need to count calories. My New Roots draws on the enormous appeal of Sarah Britton's blog, which strikes the perfect balance between healthy and delicious food. She is a "whole food lover," a cook who makes simple accessible plant-based meals that are a pleasure to eat and a joy to make. This book takes its cues from the rhythms of the earth, showcasing 100 seasonal recipes. Sarah simmers thinly sliced celery root until it mimics pasta for Butternut Squash Lasagna, and whips up easy raw chocolate to make homemade chocolate-nut butter candy cups. Her recipes are not about sacrifice, deprivation, or labels--they are about enjoying delicious food that's also good for you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favourite cookbook This book is my absolute favourite. It is the book that ignited my passion for cooking healthy vegan food. Every recipe turned out great - and most pages include a nutritional fun-fact about a specific ingredient included in the recipe. I love that it is organized based on what is in season, and I love how much I have learned about food. There are a couple of mistakes to watch out for though - a couple of the recipes will say vegan when they are in fact not vegan (including Ghee for example, which is made of butter) - easy fix though!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The Seasons on your Plate. My favorite thing about the New Roots cookbooks are the mouth watering photos, feel of the pages, type of paper used, matte finish....The cover drew me in as always. The book is divided into 5 chapters and seasons using ingredients in abundance during those seasons. There is even a chart for dry beans, growing sprouts and stocking your pantry. The instructtions are clear and easy to follow with nothing taking more than 45 mmminutes. Great inspirational cookbook. #plumreview

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as good as the blog recipes Many of the recipes call for hard to find ingredients. However, it is a beautiful book to flip through.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! As an avid follower and fan of Sarah Britton's blog and Instagram page, I was thrilled when she released a cookbook. I purchased the book a few months ago, and honestly, it does not disappoint! Much like her blog, not only are the recipes mouth-watering to read and beautifully presented with photos, they are informative, well-written, simple to follow and delicious. A definite must-have for anyone who loves to cook, and enjoys eating good and healthy food.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it Lately we've been requesting cook books from Random House Canada (See Juicing and Salad Love) and we are so in love with every single one we receive. Random House sure knows how to pick the books and package them beautifully, interior and exterior wise. This specific post will be about My New Roots by Sarah Britton which was released recently. Sarah Britton is actually dubbed as the "Queen bee of the health blogs" and this book was inspired by her very popular blog. This book contains 100 plant based recipes and I can vouch that even though her ingredients are used by us everyday, her recipes turn them into something more delicious and unique. The book is divided into seasons, with summer split into early and late summer. I love how cook books are dividing their books in this way. Only one recipe was tried from this book but like I said, it was delicious The final product looked identical to the one in the photo and it was easy to replicate. it is mostly made from lentils and itself on its own is so fulfilling even though it is technically just lentil soup. We just added a bit of friend onion garnish on top, but that was optional. I love the rustic feel of this recipe and I will definitely be doing this recipe again in the future. All the recipes are very healthy and there are many options such as vegetarian, vegan, and even gluten free options. I really want to try out the dessert section because there are some mouth watering ones I've tabbed for later. Also, my whole family loved this dish.
