Reclaim your Taste Buds

If you’re contemplating eating mostly or entirely plant based this year, you’ve no doubt wondered: Will I just be eating bland fiber bombs all the time?

Eric Adams, a Brooklyn-based politician and author, has been there. “Before I became plant based, I never would have believed that eating this way would satisfy me,” he writes in his new book, <Healthy at Last>. “I used to think that a good meal meant lots of sugar, salt, and fat. I had no idea what vegetables and fruits truly tasted like because what few I ate were drowned in sauces and oil. This is one of the most surprising benefits of a plant-based diet: You get your taste buds back!”

The following recipes, curated by Adams and reprinted from Healthy at Last, show exactly what he means.
