Our MessageToo many people think “Food Doesn’t Matter…. “
And so they continue to eat anything and everything, all the while poisoning themselves with high fat, calorie rich, nutrient poor foods, and wondering why they continue to get sick.
And even if we WERE to convince them that diet is important – they would think that “…as Vegans”… we deprive ourselves by somehow surviving on just tofu and sprouts.
My goal with this site and all my recipes is to prove them WRONG!
We eat a VARIETY of DELICIOUS foods – even COMFORT foods that we crave – and STILL get all the Vitamins, Minerals, and Nutrients we need from a Plant Based Diet.
You CAN eliminate the meat, and the oil, and the dairy, and the cheese and STILL have food that tastes AMAZING. We do it every day, and we do it without feeling DEPRIVED in the least.
Here at Brand New Vegan we’re changing things.
Not just the foods we eat, but attitudes as well. And when we can change THOSE…
We can change lives.
Won’t you join us?
“I’m from Texas and have been very disappointed with many of the vegan chili’s that I’ve tried. I made this recipe tonight and all I can say is…. This recipe is THE BOMB!! Nothing else need be said!!!”
“Chuck: My wife and I tried this amazing cheese sauce with some whole wheat rotini tonight. Honestly couldn’t resist it…so mac and cheesy without all the cheesy badness. Thanks for the great recipe!! I have shared it on my blog today!”
“This was AWESOME and the hubby claimed this as his favorite vegan meal with meat subs that we’ve tried since we went vegan 4 weeks ago!!! We are brand new vegans, and we will be back for more!”
“This Mac and “Cheese” is beyond delicious! There aren’t enough words to describe the fabulous mouthfeel and amazing taste! It’s cheesy and gooey…it’s a perfect replacement for real cheese. So amazingly delicious!”
“These are fantastic – hands down the best oven baked fries ever. I wouldn’t have believed how crispy they could be without oil until I tried them myself. I’ve had these 7 out of the past 9 days, and they just keep getting better every time (seriously, you’ve created a monster…). Loving your site – thank you!”
“Chuck, Your recipes have changed our lives for the better. Thank you for sharing. Your recipes make it easy for me to learn to cook. Honesty, I cannot thank you enough!”
