When deciding to follow the Nutritarian Lifestyle for the longhaul, I knew I was going to have to cook more and find recipes I and my family really liked. So began the experimenting. I use many of Dr. Fuhrman's recipes to start off with or as inspirationa and made adjustments as I went to suit the tastes of our family. Here are some of the best so far!
Desserts are number 1
In order the stick to any diet, there was must be dessert that is 100% on the diet and guilt free and not only won't sabatoge results, but will help you get them. I don't feel like I'm on a diet or sacrificing anything when I get to eat dessert, too. So some of the first recipes I tried were desserts. My family's favorite so far?
Peanut Butter Cookies!
I have an affinity to PB cookies & they have always been my favorite, so I was skeptical about making these from lentils. The verdict?
Amazing! So much like the real thing and they are super soft. I think I might even try crunchy peanut butter sometime in them - I think that would be great!

How to get in more greens
I also wanted my family to get in more greens like Kale and my kids are not much salad eaters... So, I've found 2 things they like a Fruit and Greens Smoothie where the Kale or Spinach is hidden my the taste of the fruit and, believe it or not, Baked Kale Chips. The kale chips are seasoned with just a little oregano & garlic powder and are nice and crunchy.

Favorites, Nutritarian Style
Lastly, I needed to find a way to make my family's favorites, Nutritarian style. I do simple spaghetti marinara with soybean pasta which is really good! They don't really know the difference and I think it tastes better than whole wheat pasta. Sometimes I will also add in chopped veggies like spinach, zucchini, or carrots. But I also wanted to find a way to make a big Lasagna they would like. So I went on a search to find out how to make the ricotta out of tofu and the sauce more nutritarian friendly. My youngest son thinks I nailed it :-).
