By March 18, 2018May 23rd, 2019No Comments


“The Plantpower Way: Italia is a great example of how we live life as Italians both here, and in Italy. These recipes are indulgent, but made with integrity and a healthful, plant-based twist, certain to keep your friends and family happy, fulfilled, and grateful for nourishing food and company.”

Award-winning chef Rocco DiSpirito

Do you think a healthy vegan lifestyle means giving up your favorite creamy pastas and cheesy pizzas?

Think again.

The product of several years of experimentation, Julie and I are absolutely thrilled to finally announce the impending release of our brand new, super awesome cookbook & lifestyle guide — The Plantpower Way: Italia: Delicious Vegan Recipes from the Italian Countryside*.

The book hits booksellers everywhere April 24, 2018 but is currently available for pre-order now on Amazon*, Barnes & Noble & Target.

If you enjoyed our first cookbook, The Plantpower Way*, I promise you’re in for a treat with this follow up primer. Next-level across the board, this hardcover gem — inspired by our annual retreats in Tuscany — pays homage to Italy’s rich food history with an extraordinary collection of 125 delicious, nutritious and entirely plant-based Italian recipes animated by the country’s most popular and time-honored dishes. Filled with fresh vegan takes on Italian staples, inventive new recipes, and stunning photographs of the Italian countryside, this book — we call it Italian 2.0 — is our celebration of Italy’s most delicious flavors and will show everyone a fresh, beautiful, and healthful side to Italian cooking.

This book is a labor of love. It’s a family affair. It’s a book you’ll use daily. A book you will give as a gift and proudly display on your coffee table for friends to peruse.

But most of all, it’s a book that could change your life.

And we simply cannot wait to finally share it with you.

Pre-order sales are super important to the books ultimate viability, as they heavily influence retail purchaser demand and visibility. So if this sounds like a book for you (if you are reading this then I suspect it is), then it would mean a great deal to Julie and me if you would entrust us with a pre-order purchase*. Pick one up for yourself. For a relative in need. Or in anticipation of your friend’s impending birthday.


Now to sweeten the pot.

In celebration of female empowerment — this extraordinary cultural moment we are currently experiencing, Julie came up with an incredible idea: How amazing would it be to gift one woman a spot at our upcoming (sold-out) Our Plantpower World Italia retreat?

A stroke of genius.

Valued at over $5,000, we decided to award one female winner (sorry guys) to join us and 35 other high-vibe peeps in Tuscany this Spring —  May 19-26, 2018 — for a transformative, once-in-a-lifetime week of incredible plant-based cuisine, yoga, meditation, exploration, trail running, tea ceremony and workshop intensives at the truly magical location known as Borgo Iesolana.

The spot includes accommodation (female shared room), all programming and meals (winner is responsible for her own flights, ground transport, and mandatory travel insurance).

TO ENTER: Review the information & rules in the PRE-ORDER SWEEPSTAKES window below and complete the form. Contest is only open through April 24, so jump on it now.

As an added bonus, all entrants will also receive a download link to the first chapter of the brand new, revised and updated version of Finding Ultra (which hits stores later this week — but more on that book later).

To close, understand that greater health is always within your grasp.

So take our hand.

And make the leap.

Because there is a better way. It’s called The Plantpower Way.

Good luck and hope to see you in Tuscany this May!

Peace + Plants,
