NUTRITION INFORMATION

I do not have nutritional information for the recipes, my focus is on quality of ingredients over macros.  The calorie concept was created by lighting food on fire - the longer it takes for a food to burn, the higher the calorie content.  In theory this makes some sense, but our bodies do not assimilate foods the way fire consumes them.  In general I keep food combinations in line with optimum digestion to prevent bloating & discomfort.  If you experience any discomfort after eating, I can not stress enough how important a food sensitivities test is.  Everlywell makes a fantastic do from home kit that costs a fraction of what the ALCAT costs.

I am not a doctor, but based on my research and experience with diabetic customers: Most are good as they are.   The majority are low glycemic - like dates or monkfruit.  The recipes using maple syrup can be substituted with a maple flavored monkfruit syrup or date syrup to avoid insulin reactions.  Maple is healthier than sucrose, but if your diabetes is not under control, avoid it to be safe.

The recipes are 100% plant based, no dairy. Some do have oil, I do not use refined oils, it’s olive, avocado and coconut oil.

INGREDIENTS

There is ZERO soy, it’s an endocrine disrupter - sure the Japanese consume “large” quantities and are healthy, but theirs is not GMO, and the majority is fermented.

Yes!

It is not exclusively raw, there are some raw recipes.  The focus was on foodgasmic plantbased foods not a specific niche in the vegan world.

They sure are!

It’s predominantly nut free.  You can substitute with a different flour where I say almond, or use seeds instead.

No the ingredients are not processed.  Some recipes include sea salt, which can be omitted if you’re on a no salt diet.  Some recipes do have avocado, olive or coconut oil.  There are no processed sugars.  I use dates, maple, honey or monkfruit when sweetening is needed.

Some could be made oil-free, some can not (would be impossible to make the pain au chocolat without oil — I use coconut, but butter substitutes can be used as well).

“Nutritional Flakes” and “Nutritional Yeast Flakes” are one and the same. The yellow flakes kind of look like fish food, and they’re packed with an umami flavor punch. Think of it like a natural, healthy MSG. It’s also dairy-free, though it has some cheese-y undertones to it.

I hear you on that! Only one recipe has a mimicking meat - the burger, you can always substitute with a mushroom or your own patty (I love black bean/sweet potato). This book was intended to appeal to a wide variety of people and bring more plants to their table, for that reason I made the burger as easy & friendly as possible.

DIGITAL SERVICES

Not yet, but we are planning an ebook edition this spring!

GENERAL

You can do some in the instant pot/crock pot - soups & recipes like the fried rice would do well in those.

The recipes were made for simplicity. Even cooks who are just beginning in the kitchen will be able to handle every recipe. No culinary school experience required!

Just the basics—pots, pans, a good knife for chopping and slicing, and measuring cups and spoons.

QUESTIONS FOR THE AUTHOR

For a meal, I’d do a small salad as a side, preferably after the rest to fill up on top, some heartier veggies like roasted or baked sweet potatoes, sautéed mushrooms and/or roasted carrots, then maybe a zucchini noodle pasta to feel more indulgent.
