In any case, our cooking follows general advice (for example, Dr. Andrew Weil's guidelines called " The Anti-Inflammatory Diet ") that has remained nutritionally sound over the years:
reducing the amounts of fat, and replacing animal fat, trans fats and
polyunsaturated oils, with extra virgin olive or organic canola and sunflower oils.
reducing the amounts of sugar, and replacing refined sugar with
healthier, low glycemic-index sweeteners, such as agave, maple, or brown
replacing animal protein with soy-based protein, such as tofu, or miso.
using regional, organic, and fresh fruits and vegetables, instead of
exotic, or often pesticide-laden produce, as recommended by the
Environmental Working Group, a non-profit organization that researches and advocates in the areas of toxins, agriculture, corporate accountability, etc.
replacing wheat flour with rice, oat, and spelt flour, in order to accommodate for reduced gluten diets.
using only vegan ingredients, because this is simply a better choice for our planet.
You'll have to try them for yourself!
