W e admit it: The phrase "bikini body" is a little groan-inducing and we're just not talking about all the sit-ups you might feel compelled to do to get a swimsuit-ready figure. Cheesy terminology aside, the fact is that a lot of people are trying to slim down for summer right now, both to look better in their two pieces or trunks and to have more stamina for activities like swimming. The former was coauthored by journalist Robin Aronson and food writer Melissa Clark who has written numerous books with and about chefs, and whose articles and recipes have appeared in many publications, including The New York Times and right here on Epicurious. The latter was written by Erica Gragg and Melissa Perlman, owners and founders of Amansala spa in Tulum on the Mexican Riviera—the book is based on the spa's popular body-makeover program and has a fitness plan, plus 80 Asian- and Mexican-inspired recipes.

Plant-based diets have been linked to a number of health benefits, including reducing your risk of heart disease, certain cancers, obesity, diabetes and cognitive decline.

Eating a plant-based or vegan diet is also beneficial for the environment, for animal welfare, world hunger, water scarcity and more!
