On Her Plate introduces us to a conscious way of thinking about the human and earth connection; What properties can be found in nature and how closely does the human body interact with them? What are we doing that counteracts the natural balance of our body and planet? We explain what vitamin and mineral deficiencies look and feel like; What makes up the human body and how do we properly replenish? Readers will learn from many perspectives: retired nurses, nutritionists, biology majors, personal trainers, and every day women. The authors explore exercise regimens, female hormonal issues, cancers, and dive into how our mindset, busyness, and confidence–or lack thereof, is steering our eating habits. This book shares real health experiences from women, paired with yummy, nutrient dense recipes that are familiar such as soups, pasta, and chocolate chip muffins. In an effort to reduce added hormones in the diet, no dairy, eggs, or animal byproducts were used, and gluten-free options are provided.
