Okay everyone, I am SO excited to share this post with you!
Just take a look at what I had for lunch today...
Yes, I snapped this photo, and yes, it was as delicious at it looks...
Now take a look at what I had for dessert...
It was still warm... Oh. My. Yummness!
And the recipes, you ask? Well, they are from Mayim Bialik. She's a fellow Jewish Homeschooling mom (you can read an interview she did on Jewish Homeschooling here), a neuroscientist and the author of my new favorite cookbook, Mayim's Vegan Table. The dishes above are the Teriyaki Tofu (page 140) Sweet and Sour Cabbage Salad (page 85) and Cocoa Brownies (page 182).
Oh, she is also an Emmy-nominated actress and stars on the CBS show The Big Bang Theory. You can read more about her here.
But first and foremost, she is a mom to 2 boys who she has raised entirely vegan. Now, me personally, I am not a vegan. I was a pescatarian (don't eat any animals but fish) for 6 months once, when I was pregnant and could not handle meat or chicken, and I can honestly say that I have never felt better in my life then those 6 months.
What I really love about Mayim's Vegan Table is that it is a cookbook filled with healthy foods that we actually eat, and just happen to be vegan. We're talking Latkes, Sufganiyot, Hamantaschen and Challah. There are all sorts of yummy breads and really healthy and delicious looking dinners that I think my picky kids will actually eat. I'm also so excited to try out all the pareve dips and salads for Shabbos.
Mayim's book is not here to tell you to become a vegan. She's showing you how you can take foods that you already love and make it vegan and delicious at the same time.
