No Bacon! No Eggs! No Apple Pie? is a collection of recipes from the kitchen of Cougar Mountain Therapy Center as they have evolved over the past two decades. As the title suggests, these recipes use no meat, no dairy, and no gluten.
In this spring cookbook, you will find thirty-one delicious recipes, one for every day of the month. There is an emphasis on seasonal eating and using locally grown vegetables and fruit as much as possible. You can enjoy a whole season of clean eating with these simple-to-prepare healthy meals.
Recipes include some less common ingredients such as teff, goji berries, adzuki beans, black beluga lentils, chia seeds, miso, arugula, and bok choy. These recipes help you bring out the flavors of your food with herbs, spices, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and unrefined oils. As you enjoy these recipes, you will reeducate your taste buds to become accustomed to the taste of real food.
If you are looking for a better way to nourish yourself, if you are facing health challenges or food intolerances, or if you simply realize that you need to be kinder to your body and don’t know where to begin, this cookbook is for you. It will serve as your guide to making the shifts you need—however small—one day and one season at a time.
