Vegan, SOS-Free Diet Fit for a Foodie: New Cookbook Shows You How

I recently received a paperback copy of this wonderful recipe book Bravo! Health Promoting Meals from the TrueNorth Kitchen, the plant-based, SOS-Free (sugar, oil, and salt free) cookbook by Dr. Alan Goldhamer, founder of TrueNorth Health Center in Santa Rosa, California, and Chef Ramses Bravo, TrueNorth’s Executive Chef.

Humans are hardwired to crave high-calorie, salty, fatty foods to increase our chances of survival. But that ancient gene does us no good nowadays—in fact it shortens our lives and makes us sick and overweight. Adjusting to healthier, clean way of eating is a detox that can take weeks or even months, but the food you do eat can be worthy of a five star restaurant. Chef Ramses Bravo shows you how to avoid all of these toxins and makes it easy and delicious.

Through his vegan cuisine, Ramses—who has worked in numerous hotels and restaurants over his 14-year career, including a position as executive chef for the renowned Kenwood Inn and Spa in Sonoma County—has helped thousands of people heal from diabetes, high-cholesterol, and other chronic illnesses. Bravo! features nearly 100 of his very best, most healthful plant-based SOS recipes (sugar, oil, and salt free), along with two weeks of menu plans for people who want to transform their lives. Using his love for food and a good challenge, Ramses has cultivated a menu fit for a Manhattan food critic—plus, he’s become the leanest chef he knows.

The recipes that Chef Bravo has developed do more than please palates. At TrueNorth, and now through this cookbook, they also serve as the foundatio of dietary rebirth for people who want to transform their health. There are lots of great recipes, including photos in the book. It's complete book I can always refer to since it covers meals such as breakfast, entrees, desserts, soups, and more. This has helped me to eat more healthier and reduce the sugar, oil, and especially salt in our family's diet.
