My inspiration is my celiac disease...in most instances if I want to eat something, I have to make it myself!

The weather and the changing of the seasons inspires me and gets me cooking. This weekend I'll be doing a stew in honor of the cooler temperatures.

I've followed Chris Carr for a while now. I'm stoked she has a new recipe book out. What I find great about her approach to food is it is good for you and there is awesome variety. And I get to shop at Wholefood Maui to get the ingredients!

What gets me cooking is the fact that only homemade can you control what you eat. This is paramount for vegans and anyone who wants to eat healthy and break the processed food cycle.

I love reasonably simple recipes where I don't have to weigh the ingredients and that contain ingredients that are both adult and child palate friendly and that contain many ingredients I already have in my pantry. We love baked good recipes that contain cinnamon and fruit flavors in our family. Chocolate is yummy but since it is addictive we don't use it in a lot of recipes. Meal recipes are wonderful when they utilize the oven or a skillet and call for real ingredients. I don't like recipes that call for a lot of processed ingredients. Recipes can be simple and still be delicious. :)

Keeping my family healthy and able to prepare whole foods reducing their need to rely on prepared - processed foods inspires me to cook.

I read Crazy Sexy Diet and it really inspired me to think about how my health is so closely tied to what I eat. My health gets and keeps me cooking.

I am so excited about this cookbook. I have been eating a plant based diet for 3 years and have never felt better. I'm excited for all these new recipes. :)

Fresh, seasonal produce inspires me to get in the kitchen and take advantage of the things that aren't available all year long!

During my early childhood I overindulged in all the bad stuff. My nightly forte included the typical chicken dippers with a side of microwave rice, most likely followed by copious amounts of ice cream. While I admit every child is obviously okay to have a sweet tooth, I soon found myself obese and a target for all bullies. To top it off I was home educated, so they had two things to hone in on. I lost all the weight through an eating disorder at the young age of 13, but I soon found myself back to binging on calorific products and although this time I was still pretty skinny, I was unbelievably unhealthy. At the age of 17 I started touring the country with my current band, and things went from bad to worse, I had a year of see-sawing from eating nothing to filling myself with fast food after gigs. I realised I needed to shape my diet up and start taking my life seriously, the only way I knew how to eat was either to eat unhealthy or to eat nothing at all. This was when I found my love for natural whole foods, changing my body both inside and out, I felt better then ever. I'm continuing my journey through healthy eating as a 19-year-old male and loving the benefits of eating clean food, with 5-7 meals a day and vigorous exercise 5 times a week. I'm at a physically peak that my peers from younger years would never of believed possible. To top this off I have taken my healthy remedies home to my parents, over the past month I have cooked all their meals and helped them drop 4 stone each. I love making people smile with the feeling they are eating something healthy but at the same time delightfully tasty. exploring new flavours, mainly based on colourful and nutritious vegetables and in particular spicy foods (to boost that metabolism!) is a great feeling to me, and I'd love to try some of your healthy recipes to go along with it! :)

I want to be inspired when I cook for my family and reading the above recipe sure has done that! Now I would love my Whole family to enjoy this too when they come, as my house seems to be the hub of all festive occasions! I love to eat healthy as I would love to have this book to see the smiles on my family faces when they eat ;~) Wish we had a Whole Foods closer to me!

Lately Pinterest has been inspiring me to cook. There are so many great recipes, ideas and I love seeing the finished product! Having a 1 year old has inspired me to cook healthier cause I want him to have the best nutrition possible.

What inspires me and gets me cooking? A beautifully written cookbook that is free of animal ingredients, written with love and compassion, that I can share with my friends. I love showing carnists how great vegan food tastes.
