The Starch-Plus Diet a great book created by Will Kriski, as a follow up to his first book The Potato Strong Recipe Guide. Will (you may know him just as Potato Strong) has been an excellent resource for us here at Plant-Smart Living, and this book is an extension of the knowledge he has passed on to us as we have come to know each other through email, Facebook, and phone conversations. As a result of this, of course there is some bias in my "review" of his book, but let me just say that I make an effort to only recommend products I personally enjoy and get something out of, and The Starch-Plus Diet is one of those things!
We started Plant-Smart Living in 2015, and early into our exploration of social media and other people living a plant-based lifestyle and talking about it online, we stumbled upon Potato Strong. I was immediately interested in what it meant to be "potato strong," and could quickly tell that Will was discussing some things close to my own lifestyle as a result of our shared appreciation for Dr. McDougall's The Starch Solution. While that book has been very influential for myself and Will, it has only served as a starting point by which we have developed our own takes on what it means to live a plant-based lifestyle.
I am very excited to share with you my first vegan book review, and more importantly, a book that is near and dear to my heart as it has greatly shaped my own plant-based journey. The information presented in The Starch Solution has literally changed and saved my life. These are not words I use lightly.
