8 Cookbooks you need in your life right now, as we all cook more at home.

Everyone’s been cooking at home a lot more lately, which means a reliance on Pinterest and cookbooks. Lucky for you, we’re sharing the cookbooks that we’ve been relying on lately.

Vegan on a Budget

by Olivia Biermann (aka Liv B) | $29.95 CAD

We love the simplicity of this book. Often in the plant-based community you can feel pressure to make everything from scratch. This book is proof why you don’t. It’s okay to buy store-bought non-dairy cheeses, mock meats and anything else that makes your plant-based cooking easy. This book is filled with easy-to-make, delicious plant-based recipes perfect for everyone.
