The food we eat is a multi-dimensional aspect of our lives. Food provides us with the energy that enables us to grow and prosper. The act of preparing nutritious and compassionate meals is an art form in itself, and the nourishment we obtain promotes wellness within us. If you have ever prepared your own meals from scratch, with wholesome plant-based ingredients and an abundance of fresh produce, you likely understand that there is a marked difference between these foods and those that are processed and stacked on supermarket shelves.
The Gentle Chef is dedicated to breaking the reliance on commercially prepared and processed vegan foods as much as possible by providing detailed instructions for preparing delicious and nutritious meals that you and your whole family will enjoy. Vegan cooking is an adventure and I invite you to share the adventure with me...
