HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.  

To start off the new year, I wanted to post some great vegan meals I made for two of my clients.



Sweet Potato and Kohlrabi Fritters



Vegan Curried Brussel Sprouts



Vegan Sautéed Yellow Squash with Red Peppers


The best thing I love about cooking vegan, is the chance to use vegetables as the main dish.  Let's face it, we all need to eat more vegetables.

This year I am challenging myself to eat two meatless meals a day.  Do you have a food New Year's resolution?  If so, post it!  

Thanks for reading!

Personal Chef Cook Day 04-07-2016

Sorry I have been away for so long, but my brother-in-law passed away.  Even though we knew it was coming, it is still hard to watch someone you love slip away from you.  We all have a very big hole in our heart, but leaning on each other has been our saving grace.

I was going to post the pictures of some wonderful food I made for a client and I went to get them off my phone and there was nothing there.  Can you believe I forgot to take pictures?!  Oh well, it happens.

So I did find some food pictures that I have never posted before. 


Gluten-Free Chicken Curry with Sweet Potatoes, 
Green Beans, Eggplant and Carrots


Pistachio-Crusted Pork Tenderloin with Plum Sauce



Gluten-Free Chicken Tetrazzini Casserole 

Sometimes it is a challenge to cook dairy-free, gluten-free and grain-free, but I love trying new ways to cook someone's favorite meal in a whole new way.

What have you had to replace in your diet?  What did you replace it with?  I would love to read your posts.
