Peas and Thank You Book Review

With our family eating less meat, and Kovas going vegan, I found Peas and Thank You - Simple Meatless Meals the Whole Family Will Love by Sarah Matheny, a great addition to my cookbooks.  With healthy vegan twists on old favorites, lots of pictures (of the food and Mama Pea's family) and funny stories, it was fun to read and try out new recipes.  I focused on Meatless Monday dinner ideas (Thai Crunch Salad and Lentil Enchiladas were two of our favorites) but have plenty of pages marked to test out soon.  From smoothies and breakfast to dinner and desserts and helpful tips, it's a great book for families thinking about going vegan or just eating less meat.

Peas and Thank You
"Peas and Thank You is a collection of recipes and stories from a mainstream family eating a not-so-mainstream diet. It’s filled with healthy and delicious versions of foods weʼve all grown up enjoying, but with a Mama Pea twist—no meat, lots of fresh ingredients and plenty of nutrition for growing Peas. From wholesome breakfasts to mouth-watering desserts, thereʼs plenty here to satisfy the pickiest Peas in your life. Itʼs easier than ever to whip up crowd- pleasing meals that will have the whole family asking for, “more, Peas.”
