Exciting news guys: Institute for Integrative Nutrition just released a cookbook and it's only 99 cents on Amazon now through Friday, February 19th!
In The Integrative Nutrition Cookbook, Joshua Rosenthal provides 80+ simple recipes for health and happiness, spanning multiple dietary restrictions and preferences from vegan to grain-free.
Joshua Rosenthal, founder and director of IIN (and author of the book) explains why this book is special:
You might be wondering... “I have so many cookbooks. Why do I need this one?”
I’ve spent 30 years in the nutrition world, and noticed one major challenge: recipe books often over-complicate.
Cooking has been glamorized on TV with shows like Chopped, Iron Chef, and Cutthroat Kitchen. But just because you’ve never cooked “sous vide” salmon or learned to “chiffonade” basil doesn’t mean that you can’t make delicious, wholesome meals that will make you feel nourished and satisfied.
We’ve all tried a “15-minute recipe” only to have it take an hour. And don’t get me started on how many pots and pans some recipes require!
You’re not alone – this happens all the time.
So let me help you un-complicate cooking once and for all!

The February 2016 guided group 21 Day Vegan Soup Challenge experience starts tomorrow! Below are my selections of soup recipes. I'll be cooking these over the next three weeks. I hope you'll try a few. They're all easy enough to make on a weeknight even if you don't have a lot of cooking experience.

Vegan soups make it easy to stay hydrated and eat more veggies-- two things that are hard to do in winter months. Plus, since you can make a big pot of soup using inexpensive, (mostly) unprocessed whole foods, vegan soups can help you to save money on groceries and take out while you spend less time cooking.

I love vegan soup so much I created the 21 Day Vegan Soup Challenge. Every February I lead a group though the challenge. You can also do the challenge on your own at any time of the year. (Click here for details and registration.)
The first day of the 2016 guided group challenge is Sunday, February 7, 2016. The last day of the guided group challenge is Saturday, February 27, 2016.
Here are recipes I featured during last year's challenge. They were selected because they all include nutrient-dense whole foods. Many also include orange root veggies, healthy fats, and protein-- three important factors in reducing cravings for unhealthy sweets.
