Do you ever get back from a delicious vacation and need to atone for it? When I do, I like to grab vegan or paleo books off my shelf. I know! They’re totally different approaches, but we’re omnivores – foodivores… Anyway, I have good luck with both. When I’m in the mood for vegan, I love to grab this outstanding vegan foodie book,Vegan for Everybody: Foolproof Plant-Based Recipes for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and In-Between!
