I'm a sucker for plant-based cook books and information. Since I'm not a "true" vegan and am not a Seventh Day Adventist I have not moral or religous grounds on which to stand to eat in clean manner. What helps me, though, is reading good books on plant-based eating and new cookbooks to help expand my thinking when it comes to food.
I recently picked up Thrive (the cook book) and Forks Over Knives. Both are okay and I will definitely spend some additional time with the recipes. Like using a veggie peeler to make zucchini ribbons in place of pasta --- brilliant. Having additional salad dressing recipes are helpful too. Not trying to sound too prideful but I believe the things that I cook are better than much of what is out there and simpler. Some things are just too complicated and the ingredients are too obscure. If I can't buy it from Meijer I really don't want it.
I want people to live long, healthy lives. I want heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and ED to be a thing of the past. Most people are rushed, time is compressed and they don't want to spend an hour discussing odd-ball foods with a snooty person at a health food store. We simply want to toss some stuff in our car and get out with as little damage as possible to our wallets. It can be done. I want to help. I guess I could be the Blue Collar Vegan. Or I could make it sound better by calling it bourgeois...Anyway.
Look for some tips, tricks, and help when it comes to reversing the curse and living life to its full.
