For the past few years I've been on a bit of a food discovery journey. Reading lots of different books, watching documentaries and soaking up every bit of information I can get my hands on. One recent read, The Kind Diet by Alicia Silverstone, has opened my eyes to some great new foods and recipes.
Alicia is Vegan and while I understand the thought of giving up meat and dairy can sound blasphemous to some, Alicia shares information in her book that will help you make healthier food choices regardless if you live Vegan or not.
My motivation in purchasing this book was to discover new recipes to feed Audrey (who has dairy sensitivities) without neglecting her the nutrients that dairy offers. In reading, I also found myself learning even more about the power of foods like beans, whole grains like brown rice and quinoa, and alternatives to recipes that call for butter + chocolate chips.
There are some wonderful recipes that you must try. So far, we're especially loving the Hearty Pinto Bean Stew pg 170 + Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups pg. 183. And look at those cupcakes! Can't wait to try those.
What about you? Have you read The Kind Diet? If so, what did you think?
