Thank you for joining the Plant-Based Cooking community and for deciding to take control of your health, as well as that of the planet and animals. You’ll find lots of helpful articles on how to start a plant-based diet, plus healthy and delicious plant-based vegan recipes.
If you’ve figured out that eating a plant-based diet is one of the best ways to gain optimum health and you’re already prepping, cooking and eating that way, good for you! You’re ready to check out my plant-based recipes.
WHAT DO YOU WANT?
However, if you want to bring back health and vitality to your life so you worry less, lose weight, stop cravings, heal, be in control, and live a long and healthy life but feel stuck, you’re in the right place.
I feel your struggle because I’ve been there, too.
WHAT’S THE VILLAIN?
There’s temptation everywhere. Every day you’re confronted with unhealthy images and tempting food encouraging you to eat the wrong things. Not only that, there are confusing messages about what’s a healthy diet. No wonder you’re frustrated!
YOUR EXTERNAL PROBLEM
After years of falling prey to this, you may have gained weight, have heart disease, diabetes, or an inflammatory condition. Or you just don’t have the vim and vigor you once had and don’t know how to change. No wonder you’re scared and uncertain about the future.
YOUR INTERNAL PROBLEM
Not only that, you may feel like it’s too hard to figure this out and you just want to give up and go back to your old ways. You might feel out of control or just plain ol’ discouraged after many attempts to do it right. Or, perhaps you feel like a loser with no willpower.
It’s not your fault!
THE WAY IT SHOULD BE
I say that it shouldn’t be this way. You shouldn’t have to resist temptation from places that nature never intended us to experience. You shouldn’t have to struggle to eat right. Unfortunately, in our modern-day environment, our genetic tools are running amuck and causing us to not only overeat but to eat the wrong foods.
Instead, you should feel satisfied with the plant-based foods that nature provides and what science says is the optimal way to eat for health and longevity.

FOOD: What to Eat
All of the plant-based doctors recommend eating an abundance of FRESH FRUITS and VEGETABLES, LEGUMES, WHOLE GRAINS, but NO DAIRY or EGGS and VERY LITTLE or NO MEAT or PROCESSED OIL.
What each doctor recommends, however, does vary a bit. Some, notably Dr. John McDougall and Dr. Caldwell Eselystyn, recommend eating no added oil, nuts or avocados while Dr. Joel Fuhrman recommends eating 1-2 ounces of nuts and seeds per day, and the addition of avocado and a higher amount of non-starchy vegetables.
I most closely follow Dr. Fuhrman’s nutritarian diet and you’ll find that reflected in the recipes. I don’t recommend added oil, fat, or sugar. Some of the recipes have maple syrup or date sugar.
