Power Vegan
Plant-Fueled Nutrition for Maximum Health and Fitness
Rea Frey

"Power Vegan's three core eating princles are the no-nonsense path to health. The sweet and savory recipes are satisfying for plant eatters and steak lovers alike. And the creative exercises are sure to add inspiration to your fitness routine." --Dawn Jackson Blatner, RD, author of The Flexitarian Diet

It's no surprise that what you eat is directly correlated to how you feel. Food is the fuel that powers our body, and everyone wants more energy and vitality. What is surprising, however, is that we rarely pay attention to how we feel after we eat, despite a cultural obsession with what we eat. Even when we do notice how that heavy lunch made us tired all afternoon, we rarely put a plan in place that prevents us from going down that same path the next day.

Power Vegan is a guide to finding the foods that will truly power our daily lives. Rea Frey explains the reasoning behind how eating a more plant-based diet will fuel our efforts to achieve this aim. Whether readers want to eat better, get fit, or train like an athlete, Power Vegan offers ideas to personalize a balanced approach to a healthier lifestyle.

The idea behind power eating is nothing like a fad diet. It's about incorporating foods into your life that you like, that make you feel good, that are easy to prepare, and that are not too expensive. The book is filled with useful information about plant-based foods and their effects on your health and fitness, as well as fitness and training tips and easy 30-minutes-or-less recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, and snacks. Whether your goal is gaining energy, building muscle, or simply feeling and functioning better, Power Vegan will provide you with tools to get healthy and avoid all-too-common eating pitfalls. Power eating is not about being tied to the gym or the kitchen, but rather about fitting in the health concepts everyone needs to employ in their lives, while ditching the rest of the diet and exercise "noise" that people are bombarded with every day.

Author Rea Frey says there is no "one size fits all" mentality to diet, exercise, and finding the balance between the two. She emphasizes experimentation and willingness to determine personal preferences. This is at the center of Power Vegan: a book focused on the individual reader that helps him or her avoid the herd mentality. Power Vegan is an antidote to all of the misinformation, over-saturation, and complication about food and diet promulgated by everyone from the media to your next-door neighbors. Get lean and go green the easy way.
