Sweet Potato Soul

Authors : Jenne Claiborne - February 6, 2018

Sweet Potato Soul Book CoverJenné Claiborne grew up in Atlanta eating classic Soul Food--fluffy biscuits, smoky sausage, Nana's sweet potato pie--but thought she'd have to give all that up when she went vegan.  As a chef, she instead spent years tweaking and experimenting to infuse plant-based, life-giving, glow-worthy foods with the flavor and depth that feeds the soul.   The result? Her first cookbook, SWEET POTATO SOUL, offering 100 vegan recipes that riff on Southern cooking in surprising and delicious ways, beautifully illustrated with full-color photography. Jenné revives the long tradition of using fresh, local ingredients creatively in dishes like Coconut Collard Salad and Fried Cauliflower Chicken. She improvises new flavors in Peach Date BBQ Jackfruit Sliders and Sweet Potato-Tahini Cookies. She celebrates the plant-based roots of the cuisine in Bootylicious Gumbo and savory-sweet Georgia Watermelon & Peach Salad. And she updates classics with Jalapeño Hush Puppies, and her favorite, Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls.   Along the way, Jenné explores the narratives surrounding iconic and beloved soul food recipes, as well as their innate nutritional benefits--you've heard that dandelion, mustard, and turnip greens, okra, and black eyed peas are nutrition superstars, but here's how to make them super tasty, too.   From decadent pound cakes and ginger-kissed fruit cobblers to smokey collard greens, amazing crabcakes and the most comforting sweet potato pie you'll ever taste, these better-than-the-original takes on crave-worthy dishes are good for your health, heart, and soul.

Plant Based Diet

Authors : Millwood Media - March 19, 2012

Plant Based Diet Book CoverOne of the biggest problems in the diets of most people today is the fact that so much of our food consumption comes from processed meats and packaged foods.  Not only will this cause the body’s natural pH balance to shift, setting you up for problems, but it’s also going to cause you to place a high number of toxins in your body that will end up damaging your organs, causing blood sugar instability, and could even impact the way your brain functions.  By making the shift over to foods that are entirely natural, you eliminate the probability of these problems from ever occurring. If you’ve seen the outstanding documentary Forks Over Knives you know its premise that “most, if not all, of the degenerative diseases that afflict us can be controlled, or even reversed, by rejecting our present menu of animal-based and processed foods.” (If you haven’t seen the film and you’re contemplating a plant-based diet, it’s a must-watch. Rent it tonight).  The film gives an important overview of the 20-year China-Cornell-Oxford Project that led to findings that a number of diseases can be linked to the Western diet of processed and animal-based foods. Here are 101 of the best foods to be eating as part of your plant-based diet plan.
