Before Tabitha Brown was one of the most popular personalities in the world, sharing her delicious vegan home cooking and compassionate wisdom with millions of followers across social media, she was an aspiring actress who in 2016 began struggling with undiagnosed chronic autoimmune pain. Her condition made her believe she wouldn’t live to see forty--until she started listening to what her soul and her body truly needed. Now, in this life-changing book, Tabitha shares the wisdom she gained from her own journey, showing readers how to make a life for themselves that is rooted in nonjudgmental kindness and love, both for themselves and for others.
Tabitha grounds her lessons in stories about her own life, career, faith, and family in this funny, down-to-earth book, built around the catchphrases that her fans know and love, including:
Hello There!: Why hope, joy, and clarity are so very needed
That’s Your Business: Defining yourself, and being okay with that
Have the Most Amazing Day . . . : Choosing joy and living with intention
But Don’t Go Messin’ Up No One Else’s: Learning to walk in kindness even when the world doesn’t feel kind
Like So, Like That: Living life without measurement
Very Good: Living in peace and creating good from the bad
Rich with personal stories and inspirational quotes, and sprinkled with a few easy vegan recipes, Feeding the Soul is a book to share--and to return to when you want to feel seen, loved, and heard.

“When Brown—dubbed “America’s Mom”—isn’t posting adorable videos that show her dancing with excitement over vegan garlic-parm croutons, she’s being cast in some of Hollywood’s biggest series (such as Showtime’s The Chi) and being invited onto top talk shows (from Ellen to The Drew Barrymore Show). And though Tinseltown can’t seem to get enough of this Southern belle, it’s Brown’s groundedness and unrelenting commitment to being her authentic self that points to why she is so damn beloved.” — VegNews
