Chef Del Sroufe

Chef Del Sroufe

Meet Del Sroufe, a plant-based diet celebrity, renowned chef, and author of several popular plant-based cookbooks. Chef Del admits he was a "junk food vegan" and speaks candidly of how easy it was to become morbidly obese since his diet was based on high-fat, high-calorie vegan junk food. Chef Del's weight eventually topped the scales at 475 pounds. Eating a vegan diet was not enough. Without question, those consuming a vegan diet based on high-fat, calorie-concentrated, highly-refined, low-nutrient foods can easily become overweight and increase the risk of developing a serious illness. When Chef Del eliminated his high-fat, high-calorie vegan junk foods and replaced them with calorie-dilute, nutrient-rich, whole plant foods, he lost over 200 pounds!

Chef Del Sroufe's Three Cookbooks
Words that describe Chef Del's recipes would certainly include DELICIOUS, CREATIVE and ENTICING! It has been said that people eat with their eyes, and Chef Del's recipes certainly satisfy on all levels. It is rare that a first-time author makes it onto the New York Times Best Sellers list, let alone stay there for 37 weeks. Yet this is exactly what happened when Chef Del's first cookbook, Forks Over Knives - The Cookbook, catapulted him into the limelight.

In his second cookbook, Chef Del's Better than Vegan, Chef Del shares his personal story about how losing weight and keeping it off was a constant struggle. His explains how he lost over 200 pounds and offers advice and recipes to help others make the transition to a diet that supports optimal health. The book is full of humor, which really helps to keep his audience engaged. The fact that his recipes are so delicious keeps us coming back for more, time and again.

Like the title states, the recipes in his third cookbook, The China Study Quick & Easy Cookbook, focuses on being quick and easy! All three cookbooks are available on Chef Del's personal website as a packaged and autographed deal. Consider getting all three as an autographed bundle to hold onto a piece of plant-based nutrition history!
