Straight Up Food: Delicious and Easy Plant-based Cooking without Salt, Oil or Sugar
You really want to enjoy all the great benefits associated with a whole-food plant-based no-oil lifestyle. So, you decided to hop on board the 'healthy vegan train'.
While you may be seeing the positive effects of consuming 100% plant-based foods for your health, you may not enjoy eating the same limited repertoire daily.
Meals like a plain green salad with a side of frozen vegetables will not be satisfying as daily fare.
Like everybody else, vegans also want to please their taste buds with a variety of delicious meals and at the same time stay healthy by eating a well-balanced diet.
This is where the cookbook Straight Up Food shines by offering plenty of healthy recipes that taste amazing and are easy to make.

These are dishes that most of us have been eating all of our lives--they've just been given a makeover! Although Cathy emphasizes whole foods instead of overly processed foods, flavor is not sacrificed: her recipes simply call for more healthful sources of sodium (salt), richness (fat), and sweetness (sugar).
This is not a complicated gourmet cookbook to be admired on the bookshelf, but rather a "let's make really good food so we can feel and look really good" cookbook filled with recipes you will make on a regular basis, like: potato salad, pesto pasta, minestrone soup, ranch dressing, and carrot cake.
Cathy Fisher is the creator of the recipe blog StraightUpFood.com, and teaches cooking classes at TrueNorth Health Center and the McDougall Program, both located in Santa Rosa, California. Cathy has thrived on a plant-based diet since 1999.
