I love this cover. It is sharp and bright and feels fresh, vibrant, and alive! Just the message I want to communicate with this book.
The photos are by Hannah Kaminsky, and as many times as I've thanked you Hannah I'll do so again. Thank you for bringing your talent and heart to this project.
And, the theme of "Plant-Powered" runs throughout the book. These are nutritionally dense recipes, made with the vegan basics - whole grains and whole-grain products, beans, seeds, nuts, vegetables and fruits. Yes, there are sweets, but even these I've made with healthier options in mind, and no vegan substitutes (ie cream cheese, margarine). And, I've given you informational sections like your "Eating Your Greens", "Plant-Powered Lunchbox", and "Plant-Powered Pantry".
The back cover includes quotes from Julieanna Hever and Mark Reinfeld. Here they are:

This is a masterpiece of delicious ways to enjoy whole plant foods - including an entire tutorial on making green smoothies, a slew of rich optionally oil-free dressings, and a chapter of mouth-watering whole plant burgers." -Julieanna Hever, MS, RD, CPT, author of The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition
