Dr. Don talks live with Dreena Burton; Plant-Powered Families

Dr. Don talks live with Dreena Burton; Plant-Powered Families

Wednesday July 8th, 2015 Vegan food has come a long way in the past decade. The once ubiquitous dry, packaged veggie burger is no longer the poster child for an animal-free diet. It has evolved into a creative, sophisticated cuisine touted by the likes of Food & Wine magazine. Long at the fore of vegan blogging and cooking, Dreena Burton has been known for making healthy taste delicious. Let Them Eat Vegan! distills more than fifteen years of recipe development that emphasize unrefined, less-processed ingredients–no white flour or white sugar, but instead whole-grain flours, natural sweeteners, raw foods, and plenty of beans ’n greens. There’s no relying on meat analogues here, either–just hearty, healthy food that looks and tastes great. As the mother of three young girls, Burton always keeps their nutrition–and taste buds–in mind. From the simplest comfort foods like Warm “Vegveeta” Cheese Sauce to the more sophisticated Anise-and Coriander-Infused Orange Lentil Soup, these recipes will delight and inspire even the pickiest eaters and provide lifelong vegans with the innovative, wholesome recipes they’ve always wanted.

Dustin Rudolph, The Plant Based Pharmacist: The Empty Medicine Cabinet

Dustin Rudolph, The Plant Based Pharmacist: The Empty Medicine Cabinet

Wednesday, June 24, 2015 Dustin is a pharmacist who prefers plants to pills. His transformation began in February 2009 with a routine visit to his podiatrist. The more he researched plant-based nutrition, the more he saw its accuracy shining through in his experiences. First, there were all the devastating chronic diseases that his family suffered with from their meat, dairy, and egg diet. Dustin himself, although young and relatively healthy, had migraine headaches and weighed about 10 pounds more than he wanted to. Second, he though about his patients, and how they don’t get better from drugs. They just come back for more medications. Its took Dustin about a year to become completely plant based. Dustin now enjoys a whole foods, plant-based diet with vegetables, legumes, fruits, grains, and nuts. He’s lost the weight, headaches, and chance of disease. He is the author of : The Empty Medicine Cabinet: The Pharmacist’s Guide to theHidden Danger of Drugs and the Healing Powers of Food. Check out his blog: http://www.pursueahealthyyou.blogspot.com/or website: http://www.PursueAHealthyYou.com for useful information.

Kris Holechek-Peters

  Friday, March 21st, 2014. Hi, I’m Kris Holechek Peters and I am the author of six cookbooks. I am a vegan bak­ing fool cur­rently resid­ing in St. Paul, MN.   When I’m not bak­ing, I’m read­ing, prac­tic­ing yoga, writ­ing or spend­ing time with my fam­ily. Things I like include: peanut but­ter and choco­late, kit­ten tum­mies and British tele­vi­sion. I have been bak­ing since the first moment I was allowed into the kitchen. My great-grandmother and my aunt were my foodie role mod­els grow­ing up and I learned count­less lessons from them in the kitchen, both in rela­tion­ship to the prepa­ra­tion of food and about food as com­mu­nion. Our fam­ily life revolved around some­one put­ter­ing around in the kitchen while every­one else sat around, chat­ting, laugh­ing and sam­pling the cook’s inventions. I believe in the impor­tance of food to both fam­ily and cul­ture, which is why cre­at­ing mind-blowing vegan cui­sine, specif­i­cally bak­ing, has been so impor­tant to me. When we sit down with oth­ers and share food, a bond is formed. And if that food is lack­lus­ter, well, that’s just down­right sad. Amaz­ing vegan food is not only pos­si­ble, it’s easy! Deli­cious food trans­forms skep­tics from think­ing, “Vegan cook­ies? Yuck, what’s in those? That’s gross.” to “Heck, these are great! What else you got?” I believe that no lifestyle or food intol­er­ance should keep peo­ple from hav­ing famil­iar treats nor should it keep them from shar­ing their treats with those around them. My end goal is to make things deli­cious, from scratch, and so authen­tic that no one can tell it’s “dif­fer­ent”. How­ever, mixed in there are plenty of healthy baked goods and reg­u­lar foods to tie you over until the next spe­cial occa­sion when you bust out all of the fat and sugar.
