Healthy Eating: Thug Kitchen Party Grub!

‘Tis the season for holiday parties! While you are planning your Thanksgiving and holiday celebrations, consider incorporating recipes from Thug Kitchen Party Grub into your menu.

Chefs Michelle Davis and Matt Holloway began blogging their healthy plant-based recipes in 2012 and released their first book last year. After teaching readers how to cook healthy and affordable dishes for themselves, they decided to release a new cookbook that would allow their fans to share their healthy eating habits with friends and family.

Thug Kitchen Party Grub contains over 100 new recipes for any occasion. Don’t let the “healthy” aspect deter you–your guests will be complimenting your culinary skills long after the party is over.
However, fair warning: it does contain strong language. Personally, we think that just adds to the charm.

Gluten-Free Vegetarian Family Cookbook

512r7bijk2L._SX258_BO1,204,203,200_The Gluten-Free Vegetarian Family Cookbook is a great way to introduce yourself to gluten-free vegetarian meals and stay healthy in the process. It includes 150 healthy recipes for meals, snacks, sides, desserts and more. Within, you’ll find delicious recipes like the following one for a Sloppy June and Sprout Panini:

2 pieces gluten-free bread (there are recipes for different flavors in the book)
sliced avocado
1/4 c Sloppy June filling (recipe in book)
sliced cheese or vegan cheese (optional)
coconut oil spray for the grill

  1. Lay 1 piece of bread on a cutting board. Place a slice or two of avocado on the bread; you may wish to mash it and spread it on the bread. Top with a small amount of hummus (about 1 tablespoon) and spread it out. Add the Sloppy June filling and spread it out, then add the sprouts and cheese. Place the second piece of bread on top.
  2. Lightly spray the top and bottom of panini machine or indoor electric grill with coconut oil. Put the sandwich in the grill and press it together. The machine should tell you when the panini is done, or grill until the bread is browned and the ingredients are heated. Save immediately.
