As y’all know, I’ve pretty successfully adopted a *mostly* plant-based diet and have eliminated eating animals and things that come from animals (you know; is a mother, had a mother, has a face, etc). I say mostly because as I’ve shared before, sometimes cake happens.
I check off each day on my calendar and today marks 234, so almost 8 months. I’ve made it through dinners out, parties, birthdays, bar-b-ques, camping on the lake and a 10 day trip to Hawaii.
Dining out is tricky so we eat in more than we used to. And since my family won’t eat rice and beans for 4 nights in a row like I will, I cook. But even a plant-based eater can get in a rut so I have begun to expand my repertoire.
And I like recipes that don’t require hours in the kitchen. Here are a few new sites that I’m checking out.
- The Buddhist Chef (https://www.thebuddhistchef.com/) – A classically trained chef who specializes in vegan and cruelty-free recipes & cooking.
- BOSH! (https://www.bosh.tv/) – 100% plant-based and vegan. Recipes are visually stunning and available to cooks of any level.
- Minimalist Baker (https://minimalistbaker.com/recipes/vegan/) – Recipes that have 10 ingredients or less and take 30 minutes or less to prepare.
- Pamela Salzman, Ktichen Matters & Recipes (https://pamelasalzman.com/) – She’s a certified holistic health counselor and teaches natural foods cooking classes. **Not vegetarian or plant-based but I’ve modified a few recipes with success..
