Cooking is meditative for me. A time to reflect.Read More
I found this book at the Half Price Book store some years ago. The artwork for some particular reason called to me. Attractive, yet somewhat amateurish in contrast to other publications, the lotus flower on the cover suggested to that there was powerful and life giving information inside and despite clearly not having the backing of a major publishing house, I knew the book was published in earnest.
Instinctively I felt it would be a good purchase.
Without fail, upon opening the book, page after page contained information about essential fatty acids, the impact of food on your health and pages of vegan recipes that seemed not only unique but also flavorful and nutritious, doing the best to apply the principles set forth in the book. There are no pictures but the information makes up for anything that comes by way of visual gratification.
The cookbook is almost medicinal in the approach as many of the recipes if not all are aimed at assisting in health, prevention of some ailment or another. In fact, within the opening pages the author states plainly that people with family histories of cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and more definitely need to read the book. As well as those with existing medical conditions.
In addition to the recipes, there is plenty in terms of digestive health, information on enzymes, suggestions to help transition from the Standard American Diet to one that is healthier and answers to questions the reader might have. However, most of the book, which is 240 pages, is recipes, so rest assured that despite the philosophy and educational portion of the book, which is brief but intense, for the most part this is one restorative vegan cookbook with tons of recipes that can stand on their own or serve as the foundation for personal classics.
However, do not expect to find vegan cheesecake in here.

With more juicing comes loads of juice pulp and who wants to toss away the healthy pulp? Not me! I am the one that uses kale and collard stems in juices and cooks the greens and stalk of cauliflower instead of throwing in the trash. So, it is only natural that I would find use for my juice pulp and indeed there are many uses.
I call this juice simple green because it has only two ingredients, kale and apple. Ok, technically three because a little water is added as well. Once I said the words “simple green” I immediately went back to the days when we started using Simple Green cleaning products. Back when green, non-toxic cleaners were not mainstream.
