Colleen Patrick-Goudreau released her latest book called The 30-Day Vegan Challenge. If you've considered trying nutritious and delicious vegan options and need some great coaching ideas, this is the book for you! I've written about Colleen many times over the years (see article/video), and she has been a great inspiration to me since I saw her speak in Washington DC. I was happy to learn she's in the San Francisco Bay Area and took her Holiday vegan cooking lessons and bought her Joy of Vegan Baking and Vegan Table books.
I appreciate gourmet (and satisfying) vegan cuisine, and Colleen inspired me and members of my family including midwest residents who tried her Roasted Brussels Sprouts with Caramelized Onions & Toasted Pistachios Entree, and we were all raving about it for days!
Her new book includes practical themes including: weekly menu ideas for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, celebrating the holidays, finding harmony in a mixed household, eating out, finding abundant food options while traveling, choosing plant-based milks, B12: a bacteria-based (not meat-based) vitamin, eating healthfully affordably, and stocking a healthful vegan kitchen. Here's a video of Colleen describing her book.
btw - I heard about Tempeh (a slightly fermented soy and grain product high in protein and calcium) via Colleen a few years ago and here's a video of her making Tempeh-Bacon. She states: it's a "delicious tempeh bacon that is full of familiar saltiness, smokiness, and flavor but devoid of saturated fat, dietary cholesterol, and animal suffering. It's a win-win!"
I'm sure my Gratitude Gourmet readers are/will be inspired by Colleen and her latest book: 30-Day Vegan Challenge.
