Plant Power Bowls

Plant Power Bowls is the debut cookbook of Real + Vibrant founder Sapana Chandra. After healing herself from chronic illness, Sapana launched Real + Vibrant in 2016, a growing food blog where she teaches her audience how to cook simple, delicious, mostly plant-based meals. 

Recipes in Plant Power Bowls are arranged seasonally so you can make the most of your area’s local bounty and eat fresh throughout the year. There’s an entire chapter dedicated to sweet treats, including several coconut-milk-based ice creams.

The cookbook contains nutritionally sound and simple plant-based power bowls to boost your energy and fuel your body. A photograph is featured for each one of the 70 vegan recipes. It’s perfect for both beginners starting from the ground up and experienced cooks looking for new ideas. There’s something for everyone!
