RECIPE WEDNESDAY: Sort of ….


Cooking, or even creating, hasn’t been on my agenda the past few days. I’ve been living on basic salads, cooked beans, and fruit. Why? Weather changes still mean migraine headaches for me and the Houston area has had (and is still having) some significant weather changes. Migraines also mean nausea for me…I don’t eat a lot, or think of food a lot, as a result.

Because I don’t have a recipe today, I thought I’d provide a few links for some great resources for recipes. Here are some of my favorites!

Susan Voisin runs Fat Free Vegan. She has some amazing recipes(!) and they’re all (or, almost all, at least) oil-free and salt-free vegan. Like me, Susan follows Dr. Fuhrman’s Eat to Live plan. I’m sure you’ll find something here to whet your appetite!

And then there’s Lindsay S. Nixon’s, Happy Herbivore. Lindsay is the author of two of my favorite cookbooks, The Happy Herbivore and Everyday Happy Herbivore, with more cookbooks on the way. Her recipes follow Dr. John McDougall’s plan, which, like Dr. Fuhrman’s, is plant-based and oil-free and salt-free; the difference is really in the use of bread products and starchy vegetables. I love Lindsay’s Enchilada Sauce. Check out some of her recipes here:

Angela has some delicious vegan recipes on her site. Some may require modification or adapting for the “nutritarian,” but they’re worth it. Be sure to read Angela’s story in her “About” section.

For treats, Katie’s healthy desserts are to die for. Try her amazing (in taste and in simplicity) Fudge Babies. And if you go to her “About” page, you can sign up to receive email notifications of new recipes. (You’ll want to do that, especially with holidays looming on the horizon!)

Of course, no list would be complete without Chef A.J. She’s author of  Unprocessed which offers some incredible “nutritarian” recipes that even meat-eaters will love. Her book also tells the story of her health journey.  (A new cookbook will be appearing soon.) Chef A.J. and dietitian, Julianna Hever, join forces for this You Tube series.

A standby for me is the magazine, Vegetarian Times. All of the recipes are vegetarian with many being vegan or easily adapted to vegan. Almost all of them have to be adapted for the “nutritarian” cook, but many are worth it.

I think that’s enough links for one day! More will be coming on other Wednesdays when I don’t have a recipe ready. Have fun exploring!
