My favorite cookbook is “The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook.” This book is chalk full of tasty whole foods recipes and teaches you the importance of eating a heavily plant based diet. There is no understating the phrase “food is medicine.” The recipes are gluten free, dairy free, egg free, guilt free and finally – not flavor free!! For those of us with allergies, food sensitivities, diabetes or numerous other health ailments; this book is a blessing. The other insanely cool part about this book is the way they so clearly and concisely break down the foods and the how and why each food benefits your health.
Make just a few of these recipes and you quickly come to realize that the authors (Alissa Segersten and Tom Malterre) took the time to build, test and refine the recipes by having their children and friends test each revision. The result is a collection of completely “eatable” meals! I think it is an especially interesting and impressive feat in that recipes in this genre are typically mundane or flavorless.
They have a great website
Here are a couple of my favorites:
Recipe for Kale sauté … I just realized this is two kale recipes in a row. I love kale and promise to move on from it!
Cheers to good health!
