What’s Included

Buffy’s story

Learn about Buffy’s personal health journey – from an eating disorder and Graves’ autoimmune disease, to a full health recovery, to now a qualified Naturopath, Nutritionist, and Medical Herbalist, the founder of Australasia’s largest plant-based food blog, and proud owner of the most popular recipe website in New Zealand.

What is plant-based?

Vegan hotdogs, raw juices, or tofu – what exactly is plant-based? Buffy answers this, and guides you definitively to what plant-based foods you should be choosing.

Prepping your pantry

What you need, and what you don’t. Nothing extravagant or expensive here – just simple everyday ingredients. Buffy additionally provides you with a printable Pantry Staples Shopping List to take to the store (download it below).

Simple swaps

Cheese, milk, eggs, bacon – we all love them. So Buffy provides a simple one pager for how you can replace your favourite flavours with healthier plant-based whole food alternatives (download it below).

Recipes

Over 100 beautifully photographed recipes, in three simple sections – Savoury, Sweet, and Staples, sauces and sprinkles. Everything you need to cover you from mid-week breakfasts and dinners, to weekend desserts.

It’s not all about the sweets too, Buffy has specifically crafted this book to focus heavily on recipes you’ll actually make for lunch and dinner. There are a few special occasion options, but most are focussed on what you can make and eat every day.

44% of the book recipes are savoury, 26% are staples, and 30% are sweet (and many of these sweet recipes are in fact breakfasts and morning teas, not desserts). 10 of the recipes are old favourites from the blog which have been fully revamped (and are no longer available on the blog), while the remaining 90 are brand new.
