One of the hardest things about starting to eat healthy is hanging out with all the dumb motherf*ckers who don’t give a f*ck about what they eat. It’s one thing to get people cooking well for themselves at home but that all falls apart as soon as they have to spend the holidays with their sh*thead brother or go the office party and try desperately to fill up on baby carrots. So many people fall off the healthy-eating wagon this way, give up and never get started again. Thug Kitchen Party Grub Guide is the go-to collection of recipes that you can bring to any occasion—like a BBQ, potluck, fancy dinner party or beer pong tournament—without anyone wondering who the f*ck is on a diet at the party. And yeah, there will be plenty of drinks and cocktails because we all know the best way to save money is by drinking at home. From small appetizers like deviled chickpea bites to giant potluck crowd-pleasers like Mexican lasagna, the focus on tasty grub with affordable easy-to-find ingredients that anyone will fall in love with long before they realize they just ate a bunch of healthy vegan food. Thug Kitchen helpfully adds random, on-the-cheap decorating and plating advice—and yes, red Solo cups will be f*cking everywhere.

In Rodale's Basic Organic Gardening, general garden-building skills (from "Do I need to dig?" to "Where do I dig?") and specific techniques (from "How do I plant a seed?" to "How much should I water?") are presented in growing-season order--from garden planning and planting to growing and harvesting. Many other need-to-know topics like soil, compost, seeds, pest control, and weeds are explained in simple language to ensure success, even on a small scale, on the first try. More than 100 common garden terms are defined, and Smart Starts sidebars offer doable projects to build confidence and enthusiasm for expanding a garden when a gardener is ready. A flower, vegetable, and herb finder highlights easy care plants with good track records. Plus, there are no-dig garden methods, simple garden layouts, and tips and hints inspired by the most popular pageviews on OrganicGardening.com. With a "no question is unwelcome" approach, a troubleshooting section lessens frustrations and encourages experimentation. Rodale's Basic Organic Gardening is everything a beginning gardener (or one who's new to gardening organically) needs to get growing and keep a garden going strong all season.
