Plant Based Eating

A little over a month ago I recommitted myself to stricter healthy eating in a bid to feel better. I've tried (and failed) at plans like Dr Mcdougall's maximum weight loss and Engine 2. The thing is, I think the reason I didn't keep these up was because I was being too strict with myself. It's really hard to stay motivated and excited about something when you feel deprived. The second difference is I now have lots more cookbooks with suitable recipes and experience cooking in this style - I've never been that excited by the food in Dr Mcdougall's own books as they have no pictures!

My favorite cookbooks at the moment are; Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease, The Forks Over Knives Cookbook, The Low Fat Vegan and Happy Herbivore Holidays and Gatherings (in fact I love all the Happy Herbivore books!).

Here is a taster of some of the food Ive been eating recently - I have plenty of tasty recipes I've come up with to share with you in upcoming blog posts!

Soy Free Breakfast Scramble (mashed potato instead of tofu)

Mashed Potatoes with Everyday Mushroom Gravy (from Happy Herbivore)

Hearty Bean Soup with Mashed Squash

Home Made 'Hash Brown' Potatoes
