Let food be thy medicine. Learn how changing your diet from animal-based to plant-based can help eliminate or control diseases like cancer and diabetes, and then put it into practice by following our easy plant-based recipes.
Orange Cranberry SconesThis recipe was inspired by the orange cranberry scones they offer at Starbucks. They were one of my mom's favorite desserts there, until she found the recipe and was able to make them at home. She passed the recipe along to me and I was able to make it plant-based to enjoy. These scones are a great sweet treat because the whole batch only contains 7 teaspoons of sugar. That's almost less than ½ a teaspoon per scone, and that's a whole lot less than your average dessert. The glaze adds a little bit more sugar, but it is always optional.
Vegan Biscuits (KFC Style)Prior to switching to a plant-based diet, I grew up eating KFC. My favorite were the biscuits. I felt that I wanted to create a vegan version of this childhood favorite. There’s something about a warm, flaky, buttery biscuit that is so satisfying, especially during the holidays. Even if you’ve never had KFC biscuits, these are the perfect biscuits to have if you are looking to make biscuits and gravy. These are also great for breakfast sandwiches.
Surprise CookiesBecause these cookies are made without refined flour, they are much healthier than other recipes since they have much more fiber and a good amount of protein. However, since they are sweetened, it is recommended that diabetics consume them in very moderate amounts and as part of a program to eliminate insulin resistance.
Baked TostonesTostones (also known as patacones, tachinos, fried or sliced) are undoubtedly very delicious. However, because it is traditionally a fried dish, it contains high calories and fat. Fortunately, instead of frying, you can bake, which makes them a much healthier option.
Black Bean EnchiladasEnchiladas are one of the most recognized dishes of Mexican cuisine. Its preparation includes the use of some hot sauce, and it is usually stuffed with beef or chicken, and cheese. This version is lighter and healthier since no ingredients of animal origin or oil are used. However, they retain their traditional flavor.
Green Baked FalafelFalafel is a highly appreciated dish in the Middle East. It's typically made of chickpea or bean balls or croquettes that are fried and served with tahini sauce, hummus or pita bread. For a healthier version, this falafel is baked instead fried, and has green leafy vegetables for more nutrition.
Shepherd’s PieThis is a traditional dish in many countries in Latin America as well in other places. The original version almost always has beef, therefore, contains lots of bad cholesterol. By using chickpeas and vegetables, this vegetarian version provides plenty of protein and fiber, as well as excellent taste and texture.
Coconut Layer CakeThere’s nothing more special than a layer cake. While all cakes have their merit, layer cakes almost always mean that a lot of work and thought was put into this baked good. They require not only the mastering of baking a cake, but also the to bake, frost, stack, and frost. And when it comes to coconut cake, they’re worth the effort every time. Coconut cake not only satisfies your need for something sweet and cake-like, but they also give you a taste of the tropics. And this ones does the tropics proud.
