Roz Purcell shows us how to make super simple, tasty vegan dishes from her new cookbook
Roz Purcell is making women around the word feel confident one stretch mark at a time.
The former model is one of the first Irish Instagrammers to post honest pictures of her body and tackle her own unfiltered body issues, while inspiring all of us to do the same.
Of course, nourishing your body is the most important way you can possibly care for it – and Roz has that covered, too.
Her latest cookbook, No Fuss Vegan, is filled with, you guessed it, easy to make plant-based meals. I went along to chat with the health guru and try my hand at cooking a few of tasty new recipes.
This is Roz's third book and this time around she has decided to focus solely on vegan meals in response to what her followers were asking for. Although not fully vegan herself Roz does follow a mostly plant-based diet with, she says, the odd egg from her family's hens when she's at home. And she does have a little dairy here and there in the form of chocolate – she is only human!
There are 100 new recipes in the book which she's spent the last three years putting together, from breakfasts to desserts. Most of the dishes are handy enough to put together, using ingredients that you'll find in your cupboard.
Aside from releasing her new book, Roz also keeps herself busy by travelling and working out. In recent times she set up The Hike Life Community, where she encourages people to join her on different hikes in different locations around Ireland.
For 2020, The Hike Life is back due to popular demand here in Ireland, and she also plans on bringing them over to the UK for her outdoorsy fans over there.
When I went to visit her at home we cooked (well, I watched) two recipes from No Fuss Vegan: shortbread cookies and a courgette and chickpea soup. Both were cooked in under 20 minutes, with readily available ingredients and easy to follow instructions. Have a look at the video below, and for more video stories follow us on Instagram.
