Details: Product Description Veteran cooking instructor Cathy Fisher guides you in preparing delicious meals made from the most health-promoting ingredients on the planet! Her recipes call for 100% plant foods: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, and contain no animal-derived ingredients: meat (beef, pork, fowl, fish, seafood), eggs, honey, or dairy products (cow's milk, cream, butter, cheese, yogurt). They are also gluten-free and "SOS-free" (made with no added salt, oil, or sugar). 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, 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. Review "Cathy Fisher is a very talented chef who has been helping people at the McDougall Program for many years to regain their lost health. Her recipes are delicious and easy to prepare, and we highly recommend that you prominently place Straight Up Food in your cookbook library." --John McDougall, M.D. and Mary McDougall, best-selling authors and co-founders of the McDougall Program "The specialty of nutrition has been misunderstood for far too long. The future of health care worldwide requires a better understanding of a whole-food, plant-based diet and its enormous nutritional benefits. In making a transition to this dietary lifestyle, one of the biggest challenges is learning how to cook healthy food. Toward this end, I recommend Cathy Fisher's excellent cookbook, Straight Up Food." --T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Jacob Gould Sherman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry Cornell University; co-author of the best-selling books, The China Study and Whole "I love it! Plant-based, whole-food-focused, and no added sugar, oil, or salt--who knew healthy eating could be so easy and delicious!?" --Michael Greger, M.D., F.A.C.L.M., creator of and author of How Not to Die "Cathy is unique in her ability to do what few other chefs are able to do: produce recipes that combine simplicity with great taste, and can meet the guidelines of whole-food, plant-based eating without any added salt, oil or sugar. Her recipes are a true gift to everyone who follows this way of living. I call her work 'elegant simplicity.'" --Jeff Novick, M.S., R.D.N. "TrueNorth Health Center has been teaching patients to eat an exclusively plant-food diet free of added salt, oil, and sugar for over 30 years. During this time the greatest challenge that our patients have faced is how to sustain the results they achieve through diet and fasting at TrueNorth once they return home. Cathy Fisher has helped solve this problem. Even the most resistant to dietary change will love her flavorful food and easy-to-follow recipes. This book can help save your life and the lives of the people you love." --Dr. Alan Goldhamer, founder of TrueNorth Health Center and co-author of The Pleasure Trap.
