Pumpkin & Kumara Soup

Pumpkin & Kumara Soup It’s definitely winter right now, and winter means time for soups, flannel sheets, hot water bottles, and other keeping warm measures. This is my first ever recipe that I successfully converted to whole foods plant-based. It comes from...

Plant-based Kids

Plant-based Kids A plant-based way of eating works well for everyone. I’m often asked about possible exceptions to this, the most common after athletes (which has been covered a little already when I wrote about protein) being kids. There’s an oft-cited statement from...

Plant-based for the Planet 3: Water, Climate Change, and Oceans

Plant-based for the Planet 3: Water, Climate Change, and Oceans We’ve already talked about the impact of livestock required for our current eating choices on our planet. There are many other reasons why a plant-based way of eating is best for the environment and...

Plant-based for the Planet 2: Other Information and Livestock

Plant-based for the Planet 2: Other Information and Livestock In the last post, which I actually haven’t put up until I’ve done this post anyhow, I wrote about how eating whole foods from plants is THE THING you can be/have to be doing for the planet right now....

Plant-based for the Planet 1: Thoughts on Making a Difference

Plant-based for the Planet 1: Thoughts on Making a Difference Despite considering myself an environmentalist (most people do, actually), I have to admit that I had very little knowledge about the environmental impact of my food choices. Would it have made me change...

Why Energy is Not Equal

Why Energy is Not Equal Yesterday I wrote about the energy density of foods, this was specifically how much energy (e.g. calories) each different food has per weight unit (e.g. pound) of that food. This matters because when we eat one of the triggers for us to stop...

Energy Density

Energy Density Perhaps the most useful idea I learned from Jeff Novick at the McDougall Program was the energy density of foods. This helps us to understand why we can essentially eat as much whole food from plants as we like and still lose weight or keep it healthy....

Spicy Kumara Burgers

Spicy Kumara Burgers So this is one of my most used recipes. My last year of medical school I went to California and spent some time with the McDougall Program, and at True North. I started out at True North, and a couple of my favourite patients there were brothers...

The Next Big Thing In Medicine: Part 3

The Next Big Thing In Medicine: Part 3 Obviously a whole foods plant-based way of eating is something anyone with any of the illnesses or medical conditions we discussed last time should consider. The list of conditions it can help with is truly immense, and more...

Making Skillet Beer Chili Mac from Thug Kitchen 101

Making Skillet Beer Chili Mac from Thug Kitchen 101 I’d been looking forward to making this one ever since I first opened the Thug Kitchen 101 cookbook. ‘Skillet Beer Chili Mac’ on page 87 combines my all-time favourite things: pasta, Mexican, and beer. It also...

Plant-based and Nutrition 3: Protein

Plant-based and Nutrition 3: Protein Protein. I almost completely forgot about protein. Which is fitting really, because that’s exactly what I recommend that you do too. Protein is so over-rated. Today I’ll probably just focus mostly on the nutritional aspects, rather...

Mexican Black Beans

Mexican Black Beans Alright! Time for a recipe. Unless you count the veggie stock that was included in the less-successful making of Chickpea Biryani post. Actually what happened just now was that I really wanted to make a fly-looking mac and ‘cheese’ recipe for Thug...
