“Deceptively easy and delicious recipes here[in The China Study Cookbook]. Macaroni and squash is a winner. Cauliflower Alfredo is also a multi-purpose winner. I like it as a pizza sauce as well as a pasta sauce. The chocolate pie crust is outstanding as is the simple pumpkin and the [un]cheesecake. Who knew that no-added-fat, vegan, whole-food,plant-based could be so easy and so yummy?” – D.N. Willett, Amazon

“I read and purchase many cookbooks, but this one [The China Study Cookbook] is very different. I read each page, admired the photos and loved every recipe. The ingredients are easy to find, substitutes are mentioned and I’m anxious to put down the book and start cooking. I know my picky eaters will enjoy each recipe. The Author LeAnne Campbell includes her family which gives it a personal touch. It’s more than a table of contents, recipes, and an index. It’s a book I want in my kitchen.” – M. Reed, Amazon

“Loved the cookbook [The China Study Cookbook]. Lots of WFPB recipes. So far l have made 9 of the recipes and all were delicious. The accompanying pictures were very helpful.” – Kathleen Grossius, Amazon
