Here are two new books I am reading. I just picked them up today, and am excited to get reading!
The first one: “Main Street Vegan.” ….”OMG! HOW WEIRD!” I know, right? I really never thought I’d be exploring such a strange option! And I know it’s probably not that weird. But along our journey, one thing I did notice is how much better I felt super dosed up on vegetables. I noticed a difference when I ate too much meat (as in 2-3 servings per day). The day after I would feel slow and sluggish. I have already been beef and pork free for almost a year. I’m not sure if I could be 100% vegan ….(as I’m writing this I’m chowing down on some greek yogurt!) ….but adding in more vegan meals and using more plant based protein definitely sounds appetizing to me. Anyways, the book is about being an “everyday type vegan” not the one that eats tofu for Thanksgiving meals!
The second book I bought is called “Babycakes.” OHHHH, I am so excited to break into this book with my girls!!! Colorful photos of cookies, cakes, and cupcakes on every page has got the two of them (and me!) drooling! It’s a cookbook that is “vegan, (mostly) gluten-free, (mostly) sugar-free, recipes from New York’s most talked about bakery.” Using alternatives like applesauce instead of butter/oil, and alternative flours and sugars….sign me up! 🙂 I will keep you posted on any fun recipes me and my two mini bakers find.
