From Our Bookshelf

You can find an endless amount of recipes on the internet.  Pinterest and blogs are my favorite places to browse for new ideas. There are so many healthy and tasty dishes to choose from!  

Here are several cookbooks that we use on a weekly basis.  You can always tell which ones get used the most by the amount of ingredients splashed on the pages!

Chloe's cookbooks are the ones mostly used from our library.  Every recipe is delicious and
easy to make.  You can serve any of these dishes to a non-vegan and they will be sure to love them!

Gwyneth Paltrow has been taking a lot of heat from the media lately, specifically because of the cost of the high quality ingredients she uses.  But you can't beat the ease, flavor and nutritional values of her recipes.  They are not all plant-based, but all are very healthy. 

"The PlantPower Way" is much more than a cookbook, it is a lifestyle information manual created as a coffee-table conversation piece.  It's full of great photos and nutritional information. 

From the infamous NYC plant-based restaurant, the recipes in this cookbook are incredible.
Candle 79 sets the bar for vegan fine dining.  The next time you're in NYC,
 you must experience this for yourself.  

The Tropical Vegan Kitchen reminds me of my surfing days in the islands.  I didn't realize at the time
that all the good food I enjoyed was actually plant-based.  Now I can find recipes that give me the taste of the Caribbean, like pigeon peas and rice with pineapple!

Thug Kitchen speaks for itself!  Please be advised if you are offended by so called "foul" language, this book isn't for you.  If not, it's an entertaining read, the recipes are easy, and they contain a lot nutritional information.

Skinny Bitch was one of the first books that Kris read that changed her look on a healthy lifestyle.
It has so much information, and is a great book to read if you're wanting to make a change in your life.  It's full of "tough-love" language and is obviously geared towards women, but hey, I've read it!  With any luck, I'll get Skinny Bastard for Father's Day! 

For all those who are fans of  "Whale Wars", Cookin Up A Storm is book filled with recipes that are prepared on board their vessels while at sea for months at a time.  Plus it has an inside look at life on the sea protecting our oceans and its inhabitants.

For some of the best treats you've ever tasted, Isa Chandra Moskowitz from NYC's Post Punk Kitchen cooking show comes up with some delicious treats in her books, Vegan Cupcakes Take Over The World and Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar.

So there you have it, a short list of where we get some of our most loved recipes.
Now get in the kitchen and make something healthy to eat!

Have great week.
Be kind.
