Since discovering the transformative power of Whole Foods Vegetarian Cooking over 20 years ago, I've been honing the art of flavor creation.
I am talking about deeply satisfying flavors that balance both mind and body.
Eating this way can satisfy all your cravings and desires, and make you feel calm, peaceful, happy, content, and even blissful.
This is a far cry from what most of the vegetarian food in North America is like, which in my opinion is either bland, overly raw, piled high with cheese and/or carbs, or otherwise meh. Too oily. Too salty. Too sweet. Too something.
Most cooks just don't understand how to make a meatless meal that is healthy, balanced, and flavorful, all at the same time.
My secret for creating incredibly flavorful food comes from the ancient arts of yoga and Ayurveda.
In practice, it is about learning to get your flavors, ingredients, and techniques balanced just right.
By eating the Buttered Veg way, you can experience improved health, happiness, and inner balance! Your cells will be dancing for joy and rejuvenating on their own.
But don't just take my word for it.
