Last month, I was super happy to receive a review copy of the Forks Over Knives Family: Every Parent’s Guide to Raising Healthy, Happy Kids on a Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet by
The Forks Over Knives (FOK) Family is not just a cookbook, but also a sort of primer for transitioning your family to the plant-based diet. Drs. Pulde and Lederman are the two family medicine doctors that appeared in the Forks Over Knives movie. They use the plant-based diet with their patients to improve their health, and they’ve had great results!
Primer for Transitioning Your Family to a Plant-Based Diet
The book begins with an overview of plant-based eating and living and then moves into the different stages of family life from a plant-based perspective. I love that the book discusses plant-based eating during pregnancy (including Dr. Pulde’s personal experiences)– it’s often hard to find sound information on this subject!
FOK Family then covers the first years of a child’s life and how to encourage healthy eating behavior and later how to help the whole family make the transition to plant-based eating. I enjoyed that they also included information on maintaining a plant-based diet while traveling and eating out– an area where many people can feel challenged!
Lots of Delicious Recipes!
There are SO many delicious recipes included in this book, and they are broken down into the following categories:
- breakfast items
- snacks, wraps, roll-ups and burgers
- side dishes
- soups and stews
- baked and stuffed
- pasta and noodles
- amazing grains
- quick and easy
- dips, spreads, sauces and dressings
A few of our favorite recipes include the Mexican bowls and the minestrone soup! I have just started testing out the recipes, and I can’t wait to share more that we love. If you are considering switching to a plant-based diet or already embrace it, this is a great book to give you recipe inspiration and helpful info for the whole family!
