The world at large is moving more and more towards a plant-based diet and a vegan way of life. As a long time vegan, this makes my heart sing with joy. The vanguard of modern nutrition now agrees that plant-based diets are not only better for our health but are far superior to animal-based diets.  My joy is to be able to share my work with so many who come to learn the basics of cooking and eating a delicious array of dishes.  They are in awe of the absolute delicious tastes and variations that they are introduced to at my cooking classes and workshops.

Nutrition has become a field dominated by confusion as conflicting theories struggle for domination in the popular press.The interesting fact is that there is very little disagreement regarding healthy nutrition outside of vested interests and the food industry.

Live Below the Line Recipes (website) is an innovative awareness and fundraising campaign that challenges people to live on £1 a day for 5 days for all their food and drink. The idea is to provide a glimpse of what it’s like to live in extreme poverty, and to gain an understanding of the heart-breaking decisions some of the world’s poorest people face everyday.

Bill Tara has managed to combine all the issues that affect what we eat. He talks about the influence of medicine, politics, and nutritional mythologies, as well as how our diet affects the environment, social justice, and the mind and body connection. Most importantly, for me, is how he connects the dots in a way that is ethically consistent and points to a better future for all life on the planet.

In the past several months there have been a number of scientific reports released regarding the benefits of a “plant-based” diet. The response from those in the vegetarian, pescatarian, flexitarian, reducetarian (my favourite is semi-vegan) and even some macrobiotic folks has been resounding. The phrases, “finally” and “about time” and “we were right” were quick to pump up the idea that something big was afoot. Really?

Soups and broths have been a regular feature in cooking since before historical records. In fact, one of the oldest books in Chinese medicine is Dr. Yi Yins Soup Classic.[1] In the West we can look to Hippocrates, the Father of Western medicine. He was fond of recommending barley soup to his patients. What we know is that when a person is ill, they may find it easier to drink a restorative soup than eat a full meal. Soups have been used for many reasons.

Our Vegan Advocacy Work Back in the time of Copernicus, most would have thought it impossible if you said that you were going to convince everyone that the Earth revolved around the Sun, rather than the other way around, but it did eventually happen!  So, the past teaches us to have hope for the future. In our 90 years combined teaching Bill and I have high hope we can all come together and make a better world, a VEGAN WORLDwhere humans and non-humans alike live in harmony. Success can only be achieved through education, understanding and ultimately action.

For over fifty years I have watched dietary fads come and go. Usually, they are simply a way of selling books with wild claims. Sometimes they revolve around a new “superfood” or ingredient with supposed magical ingredients, and sometimes they are simply permission to carry on with a specific bad habit. The Carnivore, Ketogenic, Paleo or Dukan diets are examples of the former.
