Available at many libraries, this book features the interesting story of how a group of firefighters in Texas decided to try plant-based eating in order to improve their health. The results may surprise you, and the book contains a treasure trove of healthy, easy-to-make, plant-based recipes. In the March meetings, we will focus on Chapters 5-7 and the recipes, although people should feel free to discuss any aspect of the book.
