Beautiful photos of food that is as good for my body as it looks inspire me to get in the kitchen and create. That french toast looks amazing!

There is nothing I love more than a visit to the farmers market and seein what great food you can create from what you find there. I feel good about what I'm eating, and what I feed others, both because you can taste the freshness and it makes you feel good to support local farms and business. I invite some friends over to share in the food goodness, and all is well with the world!

The challenge of making favorite foods in new, healthier ways inspires me to find new recipes and try new techniques. My new favorite is making a "cream" sauce with cashews and soy milk! Thanks for highlighting a great book!

As a personal trainer I am constantly finding new ways to eat healthy - hands down the best way is always cooking for yourself. I am always looking for new recipes to try out to give to all of my clients, as food and nutrition work alongside exercise. You cannot have one without the other and so I educate myself, tweek recipes here and there and share them with everyone I know. My friends are always coming to me for the latest, tastiest and of course healthiest meals.

After learning about the horrible and irresponsible treatment of animals in middle school I decided to become a vegetarian. This was not as popular of a way of thinking back then and frankly most people including my family thought I was nuts but my fiercely stubborn, animal loving heart didn't let anyone stop me! Life, however; has many seasons. During some of these seasons cooking or even eating right became difficult & so I have been on again off again vegetarian or pescetarian my whole life. Interestingly, my daughter also became a veggie for the 1st time in 7th grade (all on her own accord). My problem is never having been taught how to cook as a vegetarian properly. That, as we all know leads to GI problems and weight issues. I don't want my daughter to give up her beliefs on how to eat just because eating healthy "isn't convienant" & fall into the same on again off again trap I did. So, I'd love to learn to cook healthy WITH her!

The opportunity to feed others, at any level inspires & energizes me. To do so in a sustainable & life giving way is my highest priority.

Rainy days and childhood memories inspire me. I use those days to play around with moms recipes and turn them into my own. Then of course, I get even more inspired when I get to cook those for my friends

Fresh organic produce and meat inspires me. I love taking a few ingredients and turning it into a wonderfully complex meal that is in no way processed. In this day in age finding quality food in restaurants is a daunting task, I like knowing that when I cook I can leave out all the harmful ingredients.

I love sharing food and feeding others nutritious and delicious meals with my cooking. Plus the satisfaction of feeling good after eating something both tasty & healthy is also another reason to get cooking instead of eating out. Excited to check out some new recipes from Crazy Sexy Kitchen!

At first I started cooking to save money when I became a stay at home mom. Then my husband started a low carb diet so I really enjoy making new recipes that we both enjoy and creating my own recipes. He's lost 58 pounds and I am still scouring cookbooks and blogs to try new recipes! I love cooking now!

I've always loved cooking. It's a lifetime passion of mine, even as a little kid. When I would watch tv, I would get so excited about the cooking channel. More excited than watching cartoons. I would sit and watch cooking shows all day.

To me cooking is taking a trip without leaving your house. You can visit different countries and cultures and learn so much .

After sitting at my 67-year-old's mom side in the hospital last week as she recovered from her second heart attack and stent placement, I became inspired to help her and my family improve their health by moving to a plant-based diet!! This book is just what the doctor (should have) ordered :-)

Sharing healthy, delicious and often surprising meals and enlightening non vegan friends and family inspires me to get cooking!

A stressful week calls for good, clean food on the weekend. I usually prep the week in advance on the weekend, making large quantities for the upcoming week as well as those meals that take a little extra time. Also having friends over is inspiration to go the extra mile :)

Each week when we go to the market or get our big box of local veggies, I am inspired to create something new. There is nothing like having a big pile of fresh, colorful veggies to inspire me to find ways to cook them in new ways for my boys and husband. I love the challenge of making things that my 2-year-old and 7-year old will eat with us. Not always easy (or successful), but I will keep trying!
