More than 100 big, bold, sock-you-sideways plant-based vegan recipes from the breakout star of The Game Changers, chef Charity Morgan. When private celebrity chef Charity Morgan's husband, former NFL linebacker Derrick Morgan, decided to go vegan, she was skeptical. But after Derrick noticed results--more energy, increased stamina, better sleep--and his teammates noticed how good his home-cooked meals looked, many of them asked Charity to cook for them too. Before she knew it, she was delivering meals for nearly two dozen NFL players, and soon enough, Charity and her two ever-so-active elementary school-aged children went vegan too. She hasn't looked back.

Using oyster mushrooms to stand in for chicken thighs, ground walnuts instead of pork, and cashew cream instead of heavy cream and cheese sauces, Charity proves that vegan food can be healthy, fun, filling, and highly flavorful--
