Basic Recipe Guidelines

-100% plant-based (no added animal products, including dairy or egg)

-“Whole foods”, which can be cooked, and don’t need to be served raw (i.e. brown rice instead of white rice, whole grain bread and pasta, fruit instead of jam, etc.)

-Foods can be minimally processed, such as tofu, whole grain pasta, Wasa crackers, and Ezekiel bread, but these should be limited to no more than 25% of the entire plate.

-Avoid added salt, sugar, oil, or artificial sweeteners

-Use herbs and spices without salt (Mrs. Dash, etc.)

-Added sweeteners can be:

    o   Date paste / dried fruit / apple sauce / etc. 

    o   Honey

    o   Maple syrup

    o   Cinnamon and other herbs and spices can help provide a sense of sweetness

    o   Please avoid agave and stevia


You can keep a variety of foods ready to go in your pantry, to include:

  • Fresh fruits and vegetable
  • Dried, frozen and canned (low sodium when possible) beans, peas and lentils
  • Whole grains (oatmeal, brown rice, etc.)
  • Nuts and seeds
