"Celebrate the Vegetarian Diet & Lifestyle"   


"As a young teenager dealing with environmental illness, who was seeking answers about how to “get well”, I came to realize that the food I had been eating was not healthy for my body, because its production was toxic to the earth’s terrestrial body. I made a gradual transition to a plant-based diet and never looked back! Not only did my health improve, I learned that I could use my pots, pans, and eating utensils to protect the health of the planet and all living things, too!” -Candia Lea Cole

In my book (offered in segmented chapters), I share my journey with environmental illness, which inspired me to explore the path of vegetarianism. You’ll learn about the vegetarian meals that I taught myself how to prepare, which helped to restore my health and develop a healthy relationship with my body, the earth, my kitchen, and my culinary tools. 

Eye-Opening Info 

You'll also learn about the rich history of vegetarian food ways, and gain some very eye-opening insights about the Original 12 Food Groups and the political influences that narrowed them down to four food groups, in order to support the financial interests of big Agriculture.
