About PlantBased

Here at PB HQ, we believe that cooking delicious, vegan food should be easy. Whether you’re holding a Saturday night get together with friends, or you’re looking for a budget-friendly, midweek meal that will please the kids, we want you to be inundated with choice. That’s why we’re proud to introduce a new layout to PlantBased magazine, to make it quick and easy to find the recipe you’re after. We’ve still packed in your favourite features, such as Dr Greger’s articles on his most recent breakthroughs, and reports from Viva! Health, but we’ve rearranged our exclusive plant-based recipes into five categories: breakfast and brunch, lunchtime meals, midweek favourites, something for the weekend, and sweet treats. This month, we'd recommend trying our Sweet Potato Pancakes (p38), Cajun Steak and Rice (p62) and Piña Colada Panna Cottas (p101) – we promise you won’t regret it! On page 18, we look at how the food we eat can affect how we feel based on our dosha. Are you a vata, pitta or kapha? Try our fun quiz (p20) to see what your dominant dosha is, and how you can adapt your diet to suit your body type. Likewise, we celebrate Organic September on page 12, as we look at how eating a pesticide-free diet can benefit not only your health, but the environment, too. Enjoy the issue!
