With alternatives to cow’s milk and dairy products becoming more and more popular, authors Dr Aparna Prinja and Shital Shah bring their debut book Plant Milk Power, a book which celebrates the benefits of fitting plant milk-based recipes into your daily routine.
Started by their shared passion of promoting healthy lifestyles, the two authors have collaborated to produce nearly 50 recipes of alternative milk goodness, to be enjoyed by everyone as a nutritious start to the day. From almond milks to pistachio milks to pumpkin seed smoothies to fruit compotes, the book offers a massive range of dairy-free alternative recipes that are both nutritious and flavoursome.
Using entirely organic, fresh and vitamin-packed ingredients, this book shows how we can do away with the mainstream manufactured and sugar ridden breakfast cereals and foods to which we have become so accustomed, and shows how milk alternatives are not only for vegans or people with food intolerances and allergies, but for everyone who wants to improve their lifestyle and adopt a healthier diet.
With an extensive chapter detailing the nutritional value of all of the ingredients used in the book and the specifics of food allergies and intolerances, the book not only provides healthy recipes to have at your fingertips but proves how alternative and plant milks are truly better for your wellbeing, dispelling any misconceptions that they are not as good for you as cow’s milk. The book also has a very useful resource section which means you can go and find out even more information on healthy food, allergens and intolerances and has a handy list of suppliers who sell the more rare ingredients featured, so you can easily kick-start your plant milk journey.
Unlike many fad diets and lifestyle changes that seem impossible to carry out, the authors show how the move to alternative milk is very achievable as each recipe is made by blending the ingredients together using either a trusty NutriBullet or Vitamix. This means that even those with very busy lifestyles and careers can quickly and easily feel fuelled up to carry out the rest of the day.
Plant Milk Power truly makes its mark in the ever growing world of alternative diets and healthy living cook books, and shows how the move to plant milk can and should be adopted by everyone and anyone to improve their health and as Dr Aparna and Shital aptly say ‘to nourish your soul.’
