This book is a kitchen counter staple! I love the aesthetic of this book—I couldn’t stop flipping through it to see all of her beautiful photos! Rachelle’s book is filled with plant-based recipes that turned this bland meal prep-er in to a lover of ZESTY cooking! Her “Feisty Red Curry Bowl” is life changing! Rachelle also shares her adventure for living her best life. Her story is relatable to all of us who have faced challenges & come out the other side stronger—she shares her tools for success. I highly recommend buying one for your favorite adventurer & one for yourself!
The best coffee table book ever! Stories from the heart, recipes from the palette, plus so much more.
It’s not just a recipe book.
Crisp and easy to read, this book really demonstrates a great life balance.

I haven’t had a chance to go through the whole book yet but from what I’ve seen and tasted so far, it’s great! I made my first zesty bowl last night – Thai and stop me – and it was delicious! Coming from someone who isn’t a huge fan of tofu, this is an even better compliment! The red curry made me forget all about the tofu and I really enjoyed the meal. Can’t wait to try some more tasty recipes from this killer book!

Stunning photography, honest and inspiring stories and many incredibly tasty recipes! Whether you are looking for your next energizing meal, need help with motivation or simply want to enjoy a gorgeous coffee-table book, Rachelle has you covered! Certainly one of those rare cook-books you just want to read through and smile as you plan your next meal…or your next mountain-bike ride. Great job Rachelle!

I’ve been making my way through the Zesty cookbook. Trying recipes and getting inspired along the way. Zesty life is much more than a cookbook, it’s a life book. I’m absolutely loving it!!
