AMORE! Rich & Julie On Relationships — Plus Italian Cuisine 2.0

By April 19, 2018May 23rd, 2019No Comments

“It’s an amazing opportunity when you develop the ability to observe yourself.”

Julie Piatt

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

Think again.

Today I sit down with Julie Piatt — mi amore in life, parenting, and service — for a two-part podcast.

First up is everything you need to know about our brand new, super awesome cookbook & lifestyle guide, The Plantpower Way: Italia: Delicious Vegan Recipes from the Italian Countryside* — hitting bookstores everywhere next week.

Shifting gears, Julie and I then turn our attention on relationships. It’s a look into how we’ve maintained our 20-year partnership in life and work, and what can be mined from our experience to deepen intimacy with your amore.



Inspired by our annual retreats in Tuscany, our follow up to The Plantpower Way* 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, then it would mean a great deal to Julie and me if you would entrust us with a pre-order purchase from Amazon*, Barnes & Noble*, Target* or your favorite independent bookseller.

Pick one up for yourself. For a relative in need. Or in anticipation of your friend’s impending birthday.

To sweeten the pot, we’re giving away a spot to one lucky female to our upcoming (sold out) Tuscany retreat — valued at $5,000! — May 19-24, 2018. For rules and to enter, click here.

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.

Peace + Plants,
