I have always been passionate about feeding my family the best foods, but as a busy working mom with three kids, cooking can be overwhelming. I know that fast food and frozen options are not the solution. I wrote Pure Food to inspire people to get back in the kitchen. Cooking doesn’t have to be hard or time-consuming. It can be simple, therapeutic and rewarding too!
The 120 plant-based recipes in Pure Food are modern, healthier versions of my Midwestern favorites passed down from my grandma and mom. I talk about how to cook with alternatives to processed sugars, dairy and flours, and I’ve created recipes that use unique and interesting ingredients like amaranth, coconut flour, tapioca, and turmeric. I’ve included some of my personal tips for cleaning your kitchen and lifestyle – from drying your own herbs to eliminating chemical cleaners.
I’m so excited that the dream of creating my own cookbook has become a reality and I can’t wait to share my journey with you and your family – Veronica- See more at: http://thepurebar.com/pure-food-cookbook/#sthash.YNF9Sths.dpuf
The recipes are printed on attractive green-highlighted pages, while the photographs of some of the recipes can be found in the center portion of the book. I was disappointed that there were not more pictures.
I was drawn to this book because of the authors food company. The author, Veronica Bosgraaf, is the founder of the Pure Bar, organic nut bars and fruit snacks. The beautiful cover of this paperback cookbook is so appealing.If you want to eat clean, whole foods this is the cookbook is for you! It is beautifully laid out with recipes each month using seasonal ingredients. Each recipe is simple, easy to follow and the final product is something I would order at a restaurant. It is full of personality and tips and tricks for everyday healthy living and eating. I look forward to using this book!
