I wrote another cookbook!!!
I’ve hinted at the fact that I was writing another cookbook, but I haven’t been able to give you any of the specifics. Well, now I can. It’s the Flexitarian Cookbook for Beginners: Quick and Easy Recipes for Plant-Based Meals.
A flexitarian diet is how I like to eat. I eat mostly vegetarian but not all the time. A flexitarian diet allows for mixing it up a bit with meat, fish, and dairy.
In this cookbook you’ll find 75 plant-based recipes with “flex tips” that teach you how to add in meat, fish, or dairy for those days when you don’t want to be completely vegan.
I feel like this is the perfect sequel to my Big Book of Mediterranean Diet Cooking. A Mediterranean diet is a flexitarian diet, although not all flexitarian diets are necessarily Mediterranean.
I absolutely love the cover (pictured above). It shows my Vegetable Kebabs with the flex option of adding chicken, as you can see on the right two skewers. I think this cover is so mouthwateringly beautiful. So many colors. I can taste the veggies in my mind’s eye.
The first chapter is all about the flexitarian lifestyle, its health benefits, and tips on how to stock your kitchen. Two weekly meal plans are included with shopping lists. One focuses on “flexing” with poultry and seafood. The other shows you how to incorporate dairy and eggs.
A flexitarian diet focuses on plant-based protein sources. Not only does this way of eating help prevent illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, it also helps with weight management.
Another bonus is that a flexitarian lifestyle is also beneficial for the planet. Our current food system is having a major negative impact on climate change. We spend so many of our natural resources growing food to feed animals that we then eat. If we ate more plant-based meals, we could make a significant positive impact on our planet.
If you’ve ever been interested in eating vegetarian or vegan, my flexitarian cookbook can get you started in the right direction. You can significantly improve your health and the health of our planet by adding more plant-based meals to your cooking repertoire.
The Flexitarian Cookbook for Beginners officially goes on sale April 5, 2022, and it’s available for pre-order now. Here’s a link to the Amazon product page if you want to check it out.
