I love traveling around the world, but now that I have a child and full time job in Cambridge, MA, those desires are on hold. The way I "travel" is sensory now: I love cooking different ethnic dishes to get out of my comfort zone and experience the thrill of discovery once again.

I'm most inspired by the weather, and I'm sure I'm not alone. Right now in Seattle it's rainy and cold, so I've got chili and roasted veggies on my mind.

ONE OF MY FAVORITE RECEIPIES IS A FRENCH TYPE TOAST. I USE ITALIAN BREAD CUT IN 1" SLICES, SIX EGGS, 1 CUP OF BROWN SUGAR, ABOUT 3 ox OF GRAN MANGE. PLACE THE SUGAR IN BOTTOM OF PIREX 9 X 16 DISH, PLACE BREAD OVER AND THEN POUR THE MIXTURE OF (beaten) EGGS-LIQUOR-1/2 CUP OF HALF-HALF OVER BREAD. REFRIGERATE OVER NIGHT. HEAT OVEN 350 COOK IN OVEN FOR 35-40 MINUTES. ENJOY!!

I'm fascinated by the concept that we can move away from Western traditional ideas of "curing" ourselves by looking at what we consume every day. That's why I've been moving more towards organic, sustainable, non-processed foods. Besides being more satisfying than a lot of foods that are packaged and processed they are better for us. My challenge is what to make, how to mix up the ingredients to keep from being bored? What to do with items I like but don't have a lot of recipes for (hello Kale!). i think your book sounds like a great reference for looking at food in a new way! Thank you!

Nothing better to inspire me than to recreate recipes and see the joy on my freinds & family's faces as they enjpy eating them as much as I do recreating them.

I'm incredibly inspired by learning to make plant-based recipes as the joy of making food that will truly nourish people, taste fantastic and of course help animals to experience life as they were intended to, will hopefully inspire others to do the same. I want to be an example of how wonderful a compassionate lifestyle is.

The fresh sights and smells of cooking from scratch inspire me every time. Cutting a purple cabbage in half reveals a beautiful, bright patter of leavers. Chopping the parsley, mint and onions for tabbouleh salad is a rollercoaster of fresh scents!

Sharing a meal with friends and family inspires me. Being snowed in inspires me to cook. Seasonal fresh ingredients inspire me to cook. Reading cookbooks inspire me to cook.

Energy inspires me. Feeling energetic throughout the day, every day is my goal. Just recently I had to stop eating gluten and dairy products. I'm slowly adjusting to that. It's been a couple of weeks and I can feel a difference in my energy levels. Yes! I love to cook, because I love to eat good food. It's that simple.

Seeing my formerly meat and cheese lovin' Wisconsin-native husband absolutely LOVE our plant-based meals inspires me to keep cooking! And as a result, we are able to enjoy so many other things in life together - health, outdoor adventures, and much more!

hosting get togethers are what inspire me to cook because my kids don't appreciate it when I do it for them.

Fresh ingredients without wheat flour are top of my list right now. I love shared recipes to try out before buying a book.

I love to cook when I get an unexpected day off. Then I don't have all the other responsbilities and cooking becomes fun again.

I get inspired to cook when I pick up my CSA share from a neighbor. I like how it narrows down my ingredient choices (much less than standing in the produce dept., and then I have to be creative with those more limited options in the bag.

I am inspired to cook a plant based diet by the love of my wife and children. It is one way to express your love for your family as well as your concern for their health and for the environment.

I love to cook, and what really inspires me is finding recipes that not only taste amazing - but contribute to a healthy body and lifestyle. Although I have been a vegetarian since 1994, I have never quite been able to go 'full vegan', so this cookbook sounds ideal to get me started on the right track. .
