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!

Bucket List
I awoke in the wee hours this morning, from a dream about my parents. Both passed in the last few years; my dad in 2008 and my mom in 2010. They were the dearest people in my life; teachers, guides, providers, cheerleaders and guardians of my heart and soul. Although I know that they are safe and so

Living in Your God-ness
There are some people who come into our lives at a point in time when we are entering a new way of being. They plant seeds and are not necessarily a regular part of our days. Kind of like music in the background that puts a smile on your face when you hear it. Such has been the case with my friend
