- somehow I believe if we lived next door, I would become a nuisance to you! Everyone knows if they even whisper the word "nutrition" or "recipe", I come running with my say. LOL.
I have a list of tons more I reference (books, authors, blogs, etc) but I won't overwhelm everyone. However, there is one more person I would recommend if you like YouTube videos. Dillon Holmes from Well Your World
. He has long (60min) Q&A's or short (10-ish min) of quick recipes or quick sound bites on health. I really enjoy him.
I will say when I started eating exclusively whole plants, I was overwhelmed because traditional recipes used an ingredient list 20 line items long, used an obscure ingredient I could never find, or used an ingredient I would never use again. The 3 I recommended (Chef AJ, Dillon Holmes, Jane & Ann Esselstyn
) all teach how you can make anything, using any plant ingredient, in any quantity, substitute as needed, and it be quick. Even "experiments" or "fails" are pretty dang good! And it can all be so fast once you get the hang of it.
Quite frankly, I am a bit mad I didn't find this way of eating decades ago since it is so much easier, faster and yummier. And it healed my insane gut issues I had for decades and tremendously helped my puffy joints (I am just a fluid collector in my joints, especially when I travel and would have to get fluid removed after each trip). Not to mention allergies, asthma, fatigue, etc etc etc.
If you are going to binge watch this weekend, I would start with "Chef AJ: From Fat Vegan to Skinny B!tch". She doesn't talk about recipes in it, but does tell her story and it explains where she comes from and why she is the way she is now.
Can't help it, I have to add for binge-watchers: Also recommend YT videos from Alan Goldhamer, Doug Lisle, John McDougall, Caldwell Esselstyn. Various different health topics depending on what you are looking for.
