Overview

Power Vegan is a guide to finding the foods that will truly power our daily lives and explains the reasoning behind how eating a more plant-based diet will achieve this aim. Whether readers want to eat better, get fit, or train like an athlete, Power Vegan contains the personalized, balanced approach to a healthier lifestyle. The idea behind power eating is not a fad diet. It's about incorporating foods into your life that you like, make you feel good, are easy to prepare, and are not too expensive. The book is filled not only with tips, but easy 30-minutes-or-less recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts, and snacks. Whether the goal is gaining energy, building muscle, or simply feeling and functioning better, Power Vegan will provide the tools to get healthy and avoid all-too-common pitfalls. Power eating is not about being tied to the gym or the kitchen, but rather about fitting in the health concepts everyone needs while ditching the rest of the diet and exercise "noise" that people are bombarded with every day.

    I found Rea Frey's book to be so inspiring and in less than one

    I found Rea Frey's book to be so inspiring and in less than one week's time, it has become my favorite summer read.  It is now my "go to" book for quick, uncomplicated answers before preparing a meal or heading to the grocery store.
    Unlike others I've read, this book is not a lecture on what not to eat, but in fact, just the opposite.  She simply meets you 'where you are' and offers suggestions on what can be added to your diet to make it a more healthy option.  And her recipes are easy and delicious!
    Rea Frey's book is appropriate for anyone who is looking to improve their lifestyle through diet and fitness. Regardless of your food preferences, have fun with this book and explore.  You won't be disappointed.
