Blue Moon Vegetarian: Reflections, Recipes,and Advice for a Plant-Based Diet is part memoir, part cookbook, and part health-and-nutrition how-to, and chronicles Kentucky-born former nurse Paula Marie Coomer as she and her fiancé go vegetarian—and ultimately vegan—while also planning a mid-life wedding, adopting a pound hound, and remodeling their two-story Victorian. Writing with honesty, humor, and sometimes despair, Coomer tells the story of two people alternately thriving and suffering as they adjust to a new way of eating, living, and loving. With advice from a former public health professional and over fifty original, tried-and-true, plant-based recipes, this thought-provoking bookk is perfect for anyone concerned about their own health, the health of their loved ones, and the health of our planet.
From the back cover:
“Blue Moon Vegetarian is a book that will feed all the essential parts of you: your body, your
mind, your soul. It’s a love story, a health journal, a cookbook, a lyrical memoir–the perfect
recipe for anyone who desires to live a deliciously examined life.”
