In this episode, we interview Dustin Harder, author of several vegan cookbooks and host of the Keep On Cookin' podcast. Finding a good cookbook (or two or three or ten) is a fantastic entryway into the plant-based lifestyle. And yet this kind of gold (a great cookbook) can be difficult to find.
Be the first to know when we release new podcast episodes and get insider content, information, stories, and inspiration from Toni and Michelle!
We're so excited to welcome Dustin Harder, aka The Vegan Roadie, onto The Plant-Powered People Podcast and to chat all about vegan cookbooks! The good, the bad, the delicious, the inspiring, the empowering foodie wins, and the totally nasty and disheartening cookbook fails.
Be sure to check out Dustin's Keep On Cookin' podcast where he chats with vegan cookbook authors about their experience, favorite recipes, and love of plant-based food.
