Thoughtful Thursdays: Blissful Bites by Christy Morgan

Blissful Bites by Christy Morgan is a book that kicked me in the pants.  It is a sweet reminder that Daiya Cheese and Tofutti Cream Cheese, while they are vegan, should not be main ingredients in 2 out of my 3 meals per day! 

Reminding me that good food grows out of the ground, and tastes good (delicious, actually) exactly how mother nature intended it.

Each chapter in this beautifully photographed book is broken up into seasons, which makes it fantastically easy to find recipes that use foods that are naturally in season.  Which, in turn, makes it easier to cook with locally grown ingredients.

I recommend this book to any vegan, or health conscious cook.  The recipes are clean, easy to follow and full of flavor, even though onions and garlic are missing from the whole shebang!

Yaahh! I have had this book on hold for me at work foreverrr but haven't even bought it yet, so sad! I think after all the MoFo decadence, this will be a perfect, clean treat.

Nice. Eating with the seasons in mind is the way to go. I thinks it's the best for us too.
