Don’t Kale Me! by Jacquelyn Son is a must-own cookbook for those who want to transition to a plant-based diet, as well as those who have been vegan for years.
I first noticed Jacquelyn on Instagram. She is a fitness coach and personal trainer, and I love her pineapple logo. Wouldn’t you want to work out with Jacquelyn?
I was really excited when she contacted me and asked me to review her new recipe eBook. It contains over 50 recipes that are easy to follow and don’t require a laundry list of ingredients.
The chapters include Breakfast; Smoothies & Drinks; Salads; Sauces, Dressing, Dips; Snacks; Oil-Free Stir Fries; Soups & Stews; Rice; Pasta; and “Sweet Thangs”.
What I like the most about Don’t Kale Me! is the recipes are for dishes that I want to eat every day.
Baked Yam Fries are a healthy snack.
Quinoa Salad is nutritious and filling.
Some of my favorite recipes from the book are Green Nice Cream, Chai Latte, and Green Curry Stew.
I also love the Soba Salad recipe, which Jacquelyn graciously allowed me to share with you.
