I’m so excited to be announcing the publication of my new book, California Vegan, on March 15, 2021! Check out my chat on what California plant-based eating is all about, and how you can be inspired by this easy, light, fresh, globally-inspired, absolutely delicious eating style no matter where you live.

“Sharon Palmer reflects what California represents in many peoples’ imaginations – she’s bright, vibrant, friendly, and adapatable to the various seismic shifting we’re all challenged with. Sharon’s early lifetime experience among an archetypal blue zone community, plus her constant quest to keep up with the latest research, makes her a valued food and nutrition expert for all things plant-based.”
