“Allison’s first cookbook is fresh and fabulous! I was bowled over by the mouthwatering photos and flavor combinations. The cauliflower hazelnut pilaf alone is worth the price of the book!” —Greta Podleski, bestselling author of Looneyspoons
“Whole Bowls makes healthy food crave-able! It marries the concept of comfort food with healthy eating and shows in the most tantalizing way that the two don’t have to be mutually exclusive.” —Chelsea Allen, RD, creator of Chelsea’s Healthy Kitchen
“All of the best nutrition advice in the world is of little use if you don’t know how to feed yourself well. Allison effortlessly takes one of my favorite things—a comforting bowl of veg and grains—up a whole bunch of notches (hello, hazelnut dukkah!). Whole Bowls will show you just how insanely delicious a plant-centered life can be!” —Desiree Nielsen, RD, author of UnJunk Your Diet
