looking for great fat free vegan recipes?

Mary and Heather McDougall
Rip Esselstyn of Engine 2
From Dr. McDougall's website
peanut butter cup smoothie 
 

As many of us try to clean up our diet and reduce or eliminate animal foods and added fats/oils we find ourselves cooking more than ever before.

Over the last 9 months I have been on this journey.

here are some of the websites that I go to frequently for recipes.

Often these will get me going in the right direction. I rarely make a recipe as written (ask my wife!). I am always adding this taking out that. As long as you aren't baking it usually works out.

Dr. McDougall's newsletter recipe archive-this is a huge resource of recipes. Some can be a tad bland so I may kick up some flavors here and these but there are some great recipes here.
Some of my favorite's are-
Layered Tex-Mex lasagna (its really more like enchiladas) Even though the sodium is too high we skip making our own sauce and use the no oil frontera red chile enchilada sauce. 3 pouches for this recipe.

Tofu Loaf-Tastes like meat loaf.
Mashed Potatoes-a staple.


FATFREE Recipe Collection-This is also a massive archive. I like to browse by category.

The Healthy Vegans-These guys are McDougallers and write a pretty good blog. Some of the recipes are hit or miss but absolutely worth checking out from time to time.


Engine 2 Diet- Rip Esselstyn's Plant Strong Movement. Great story about a firefighter fighting cholesterol and disease. Some good recipes and support as well.

Happy Herbivore-Lindsay Nixon's website and cook books are a great resource. Check out the peanut butter cup smoothie! 

Post Punk Kitchen-Isa Chandra Moskowitz's Blog. Appetite for Reduction is one of her many cook books. I like this one the best because it is focused on lower fat recipes.

Hope these links prove useful. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments section.

To Your Health,
