One Part Plant

A Simple Guide to Eating Real, One Meal at a Time

Jessica MurnaneForeword by Lena Dunham

Book

We hear the advice all the time: eat more plants. But most of us ignore it. Jessica Murnane used to be one of those people. A few short years ago, her diet consisted of three major food groups: Sour Patch Kids, Diet Coke, and whatever Lean Cuisine contained the most cheese. But when her endometriosis, a chronic and painful condition, left her desperate for help, she overhauled her diet and focused on eating whole, plant-based foods—real foods. Within months, she began to feel like herself again.

With a unique style and a playful tone, Jessica shares what she’s learned on her way to eating real. She won’t ask you to change your diet radically or adhere to a strict eating philosophy—just to commit to eating one plant-based meal each day. That’s it.

Jessica keeps it simple and, most important, delicious—with 100 allergy-friendly recipes like Creamy Mushroom Lasagna, Easy Vegetable Curry Bowls, Triple Berry Skillet Cobbler, and Chocolate Chunk Cookies. One Part Plant gives you the tools you need to easily and deliciously make plants the star of your plate—no matter how much junk food occupies it now.
