Do not purchase this book unless you are prepared to admit that plant-based eating is simple, affordable and just as tasty as any other way of eating. It doesn’t cost a fortune (neither of them could do it if it did), it doesn’t require hours in the kitchen (neither of them could do it if it did), you don’t need any special gadgets (although Calie does love an air fryer), you won’t lose muscle or lack protein (Nic got bigger) and you can still have abs. To the kids or partner looking over your shoulder right now with skepticism...relax...just because you’re going to find more plants on your plate doesn’t mean you have to give up animal products or your favorite treats. This book is all about balance and finding your path to looking and - more important - feeling your absolute best! Cheers! About the Author Nic Heffernan is a business owner, former athlete and a recovering meat and carb addict turned plant-based. He spent most of his life playing and coaching soccer, which kept him fit on the outside, but his eating habits caught up with him and his insides resulting in 8 surgeries. Since becoming Plant-Based, Nic has seen a complete transformation in both his mental and physical health. Despite his private nature, he decided to share his story to inspire men (and women) who know they can feel better, but just don't know how to start. His successful transformation to plant-based eating had everything to do with his no bullshit attitude and little to do with any special cooking skills, gadgets or nutrition knowledge. He simply made a decision and learned as he went. Nic's vision for the first cookbook is to show people it's possible to ease into a plant-based lifestyle even if you want to continue eating some meat.
