Healthy Eating Philosophy: Healthy plant-based foods can be delicious, satisfying, and fun to make. Although I am a passionate vegan, I support and celebrate everyone’s food choices, as long as they are thoughtful and sincere. As a nutritionist and blogger, my ultimate goal is to help people love, celebrate, and make peace with the food on their plates.
Healthy Cooking Tip #1: Just start! Some of the best dishes any home cook can enjoy are the simple ones.
Biggest kitchen failure: I made a raw cream of broccoli soup which was terrible! I like sour food, but I took it too far and ended up with something so sour and salty that it was practically inedible.
What sets my blog apart: While incredibly health conscious, my blog is also moderate, sane, and reasonable. Many vegan and raw food resources are strict in their approach, advocating an all-or-nothing philosophy or adopting drastic cleanses, fasts, or elimination diets. I don’t give up my morning cup of coffee, I don’t skimp on indulgences, and I don’t believe in any food extremism. I believe in a scientific, evidence-based approach to nutrition and a gentle, open-minded, festive approach to food.
Five foods I always have on hand: Kale, avocado, bananas, medjool dates and tahini
Culinary idols: Deborah Madison and Mollie Katzen. Their food is so fresh, so simple and so versatile.
A cookbook every woman should have: Vegetarian cuisine for all by Deborah Madison. It’s a classic: clear, simple and full of plant-based dishes that will please everyone.
Favorite recipe: Five Ingredient Vegan Blackberry Coconut Ice Cream
