Book Review {+ Giveaway!} The Plant Based Journey by Lani Muelrath

Welcome to my latest book review post!  There’s nothing like being part of a blog tour for getting myself back up and writing again.  With so many recent curves in this little rollercoaster I call life, I have been doing just about everything but writing lately.

Lani Muelrath is a plant-based-living and aerobics professional who has had personal success with staying 100% animal-product free for many years.  In her book, The Plant Based Journey, she addresses the “whys” of overhauling one’s diet into vegan territory, right before digging into the “hows.”

If you’ve stopped by before, you probably know that I sprinkle in health/fitness tips here and there among my recipes.  This is because the world would obviously be a better place if chocolate and health were not mutually exclusive. 

I mean, have it all, why don’t you?  That’s not too much to ask.
