The Sexy Vegan

 

Do cookbooks come any better than this?  Imagine a guide to healthy eating that would juice you up, slim you down, help save the eco-system AND enliven your sex life? The Sexy Vegan Cookbook: Extraordinary Food From An Ordinary Dude  just may be able to do all of these things. Written by Brian L. Patton whose playful Youtube videos are funny, delicious and informative, this 239 page culinary composition is bound to thrill your tastebuds.

He opens the book by by acknowledging his parents for conceiving him, his girlfriend for being his taste tester, and Chef Lou  who hosted a cable access cooking show, where he made a simple to replicate pasta dish  for inspring him to become a cook.  Along the way, he gleaned recipes for creating healthy, nutritious meals that also served to heal the planet . Citing  reasons to become vegan, including a substantial weight loss for himself, Brian is a consciousness educator as well as chef. Just so’s you know…vegans consume no animal products, so the recipes subsitute ingredients that have the same consistency as their critter counterparts. A friend who is vegan has said that he won’t eat anything that “has a face, a butt or once had parents.”

Lest you imagine that eating vegan style is boring, Brian will disavow you of that belief with recipes that bear monikers such as The Real Man’s Quiche, Bourbon Tempeh Sliders, The Green Goblin (ice cream), and alcohol infused drinks with titles such as The Knucklehead, The Get Busy and The Arnold Bomber. Being a tee-totaler myself, I might attempt these drinks ’virgin’ .

As I perused the book, I will ask my son who is the cook in the family to explore these recipes in particular:

New England Blam Chowder pg 62

The Beany Tahini Burger pg 114

Barbecue Ribz With Smoky Elbows and Cheese pg 136

The Luigi Pizza pg 162

Peanut Sauce pg 204

Dive into decadent delight with this book!

Pity Party
I had to giggle when I saw this meme, created by Theresa Byrne, another contributor to The Good Men Project,  since it was sucked right out of my spinning mind. Many's the time I have petulantly pouted about the way life events were unfolding. I have stomped and stormed, raved and raged (interna

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,
