The week GreenSmoothieGirl.com went live, the site had 200+ visitors daily, and that number grew rapidly. Those first readers’ requests were consistent: “Give us recipes!”
That prompted me to put together my family’s favorites that I continued to add to, which are in this collection.
Back in the days when I was eating the Standard American Diet like everyone else, my favorite recipe books were those “favorites” books that people often put together for fundraisers.
The average American family makes only about 10 favorite main dishes. But as my family shifted to a whole-food, 95% plant-based diet, those recipes were no longer appropriate. I had to find others.
In everything I do and teach, I hope to find ways of achieving good nutrition that are simple, affordable, delicious, and doable for everyone. My goal with every meal or snack is 60-80% raw, all whole foods, 95% or more plant foods.
This recipe collection is a means to that end. It’s my favorite recipes that I use over and over—those recipes that have helped us jump to a brave new world where we live greener, lower on the food chain, and more compassionately. Without spending a ton of time in the kitchen or breaking the bank.
I hope you enjoy my family’s favorites!
