    Have Fun Preparing Meals at Home with Nava Atlas

    in Health

    It's hard to argue with a plant-based diet when it benefits our waistline, wallet, and the well-being of our planet. Bestselling vegan cookbook author, Nava Atlas, joins us to share her most popular recipes, plant-based kitchen tips and the ultimate time-savers for vegans from her new book, “Plant Power.” As the founder of VegKitchen.com, the leading web resource for vegans and vegetarians alike, she busts the myth that cooking vegan meals is more complicated and less flavorful. 


    The relationship between health and food is not a new idea. As Hippocrates, the father of medicine, said in 460 BC, "Let food be thy medicine." Armed with the belief that a plant-based diet is essential to our well-being, Nava shares fun, flavorful recipes like Asian favorites and tortilla specialties.


    While you don’t have to know how to whip up a 5-course meal from scratch at a moment’s notice, Nava will share her solution to the dinner dilemma meal planning.  (You’ll probably also learn that cooking can be pretty joyful, too!) No longer only for those with unlimited free time, Nava gives us easy make-ahead tips to help you eat well even on your busiest days.


    Aside from the scrumptious recipes Nava will share, what is ultimately important is the overall message: it is time to begin to be more mindful of what, why and how you are eating for your health and well-being.

    YOLANDA NAVA, author "It's All in the Frijoles"

    in Business

    Emmy-award-winning journalist Nava has produced a collection of poems, old sayings, personal stories, folktales and short quotations drawn from an eclectic array of sources that is guaranteed to be a constant resource for parents who wish to instruct their children in traditional virtues. ("Blood is inherited," Nava's mother told her, "but virtue is acquired.") Divided into chapters with titles such as Responsibility, Respect, Hard Work, Faith, Courage, Justice and Chastity, each section features a host of historical figures, contemporary writers, directors, producers, political figures, artists, actors and entrepreneurs--a veritable who's who of international Latinos that demonstrates the immense influence of this group on American culture. 


     


    Laced through it all is Nava's commentary on her own life, which, coming as it does from a highly successful journalist and businesswoman (she owns the Ponce-Niacasio Broadcasting Co.), is worth consideration. Despite a tendency to rely on celebrity status as intrinsic proof of virtue, Nava pulls off her lessons of Latino life with charm and old-fashioned grace.

    World Kitchen Holiday Entertaining Radio: Nava Atlas

    in Food


    Going vegan this holiday season? No need to fret when planning your festivities! Nava Atlas is here to share her favorite recipes that are free of animal products, yet just a scrumptious as the dishes grandma laid out each November and December. “I have one buffet that’s specifically for this time of year, the author of Vegan Holiday Kitchen tells The Jazzy Vegetarian host Laura Theodore. “It has sweet-and-spice pecans, garlic-and-rosemary roasted mushrooms, kale and carrot strudel, and creamy cracked pepper cheez—which isn’t a dairy cheese; it’s based on raw cashews. It’s an addictive concoction that I don’t even want to be left in the same room with. Also, a hot artichoke and white-bean spread.  And for Hanukkah, I make vegan latkes, which are held together by either cooked oatmeal or cooked keema flakes.  That works just as well as egg.  No one can ever tell the difference.”

    A Lively Interview with Nava Atlas, the Queen of Greens!

    in Health

    Do you ever think, "I could never be vegan.  I don't know what they eat and it all seems so foreign and boring?"  Or, are you already a vegan who subsists on processed veggie burgers and other pre-made stuff from the freezer aisle?  If so, this show is for you (as well as all you folks out there who already love greens and cooking).
    Nava Atlas, cookbook author extraordinaire whom we have dubbed the Queen of Greens because of her latest book just released in June 2012 called "Wild About Greens," will join us as our guest.
    In our house, Nava's cookbooks are front and center.  When in doubt we grab "Vegan Express" and whip up something awesome fast.  How can you not love that!  You might also remember that Nava was the very first guest on our show several years ago, and we are absolutely delighted to have her back to discover all her new recipes and insights into cooking greens as well as setting new traditions for the holidays with delicious vegan menus -- from her other new book (she's very prolific) "Vegan Holiday Kitchen."
    So, get out your pad and paper and listen in for great new ideas about healthy vegan cooking and delicious recipes you and everyone you know will enjoy!
