One of the challenges of being on this diet is finding salad dressings that do not contain oil. Adding even more to that challenge, is finding an Italian Dressing that does not include oil. This simple recipe basically uses cornstarch and water (thickened on the stove) in place of oil. The thickened cornstarch and water can be used in other recipes in place of oil also. Here's the Italian Dressing recipe.
On a completely different topic, as I talk to more and more people advocating for a change I like to give examples of people who've had success. There are some people in my personal life who've started doing this diet but I haven't gotten around to getting their story posted. Additionally, I'm not a doctor so I don't have the luxury of meeting daily with patients and scientifically tracking their progress. Sooo, I decided to share some of the success stories of people I've come across as I've done my plant based diet research. Whether it's for inspiration or you want proof, check out some of the stories on my Success Stories page.
I'm always looking for fun snack food that fits the diet so that when I get the munchies I have something healthy to eat. I know these onion rings don't look healthy but they are.....no oil, no grease....just baked and yummy. Dip them in your favorite sauce and enjoy! Check out the recipe!
The breading for these can be used on many things. I've used them on potato wedges and I no others have tried the breading on zucchini and mushrooms also.
The recipe is adapted from the Isa Chandra Moskowitz recipe book called, "Appetite for Reduction". She likes to use oil to saute things but I found that in almost every recipe, you can eliminate the oil and the recipe still works just fine!
