Being a vegan can seem challenging, especially if you're not familiar with all of the options available.
But, maintaining a vegan or raw lifestyle is totally within your reach.
Douglas McNish began cooking in his teens, and after losing 100-plus pounds, he decided to change his career and take on plant based cuisine as his profession. He is now a Certified Red Seal Professional Vegan Chef, two-time vegan iron chef winner, has been featured on national television, contributes to print magazine publications, and is a raw food consultant who is passionate about sharing his knowledge about the raw food lifestyle.
Doug joins host Lisa Davis to share some of his easy go-to options, as well as which ingredients and foods are the best for providing flavor and "mouth feel," including chia seeds and hemp seeds (provide fiber and protein) and healthy fats like avocado, olive oil, flax, and coconut.
Doug also shares some recipes from his various cookbooks.
