Bravelute's Plateau Collection

My eating patterns have changed. My "rules" for what I think I SHOULD eat for long term health have changed. My "tastes" have changed. I STILL like tasty treats. Sometimes those still have a little of those "unhealthy" aspects to them. But usually, I opt for healthy, delicious recipes.

Holiday Whole Grains

Cookbook creator says: This has become my favorite "goto." I vary the fruits and nuts. I recently baked the rice with a cinnamon stick in the baking dish. I like it for a meal, side, orsnack. Add Greek Yogurt and honey for a delicious rice pudding. I've used apples, celery and raisins and left off the nuts. Delish!!

Cookbook creator says: Now, I might substitute coconut oil, though it's not AA. I have also fallen in love with my roasted garlic. It would definitely be a great substitution for fresh garlic. You might find me serving it on top of red quinoa or Lundberg Wehani Rice.

Nutty Cherry Pita Pizza
(no ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Still a favorite today. I don't change much about it, though I have switched to Chobani Yogurt or Trader Joes Yogurt because of the lack of chemical additives--only skim milk and 5 bacillus cultures added after pasteurization.

Cookbook creator says: Absolutely love this recipe, I even double the onions. I now put it on green salad, no dressing needed. I spread it on sprouted grain bread or put it in a pita pocket.

Cookbook creator says: Now I like to create 2 or 3 layered salads at a time in quart mason jars. They keep for 3 days very well in the refrigerator, and I only have the prep mess once.

Quinoa Burgers
Very Good 4.7/5
(7 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Now, I use this as the jumping off point, and might switch the grain, veg or add beans and other spices. But instead of frying, I bake in muffin cups and freeze after they have cooled. Eat like that with veggies or fruit, or crumble into a salad or a tomato sauce. Easy time saver!!

Sue's Salad in a Jar #1
(no ratings)

Cookbook creator says: Jar 1, 2, & 3 will stay fresh at least 3 days. Double up for 2 people or make your own variations with fresh and cooked things you have already prepped in your refrigerator. I make them on prep day and have lunch ready for a few days. Instant fast food!!

Beet Greens with Pine Nuts
Very Good 4.0/5
(4 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: For 64 years I had never touched beet green. Well I had never touched fresh beets either. So now my menus include cooked beet greens and swiss chard. I've even gotten creative with spinach (I had eaten it cooked and raw, however) So I now collect recipes like this and also for Kale chips!!

Roasted Garlic and Olive Oil

Cookbook creator says: This one show the shift. Now I would change out the soy crumbles because there are too many chemicals used in the processing. I'd use lentils or soya granules, or even dried soybeans which i would cook in a crock pot.

Vegan Autumn Sweet Carrots with Walnuts
Very Good 4.8/5
(6 ratings)

Cookbook creator says: My need for a makeover shows another shift: I'd need to use REAL Maple Syrup, or none. I''ve learned I'd be very happy with this recipe with NO syrup or sweetener at all. But I'd definitely opt fot real maple syrup. It's anti-angiogenic.

Very Good 4.2/5

Cookbook creator says: An easy way to make mealtime prep go fast. Bake the grains on prep day and divide and refrigerate or freeze for use in stir fries, breakfast bowls, casseroles, or grain bowls. No not a brain bowl, like a rice bowl. In fact, these will be delicious anywhere you used to use rice.
