good one Jan.
I have a couple of his cookbooks. They are pretty basic and plain...but good and very vegan. He also has I think a 12 day menu plan and recipes on his site.

Here's another site with a lot of good information. Dr. John McDougall is an MD who had a lot of health issues when he was just a young intern and through observation of patients who changed their diets when they adopted the standard American diet rather than the diet of their homeland (he interned in Hawaii where the patients were often Chinese, Japanese, etc.)I believe this site gives a lot of health information as well as recipes. Dr. McDougall and his wife have written quite a few vegan cookbooks.

vegan, many gluten free
I found it. Go to here, and you can download these recipes to your computer...
There are 3 free cookbooks, plus the recipes on her site. For the first free cookbook, click on where it says 3ABN recipes...
I think this will work.

We went to the phone place. We didn't have the volumn turned up. We turned the ring tone up, but to turn the volumn up, you need to be talking to someone. We didn't know that. An easy fix...
Then we ate at McDonalds. yuk. I have a hamburger and fries. I gave the meat to hubby...so there was nothing on my burger besides ketchup, so I put some fries in there. Actually, it wasn't half bad...lol
Thank you for the reminder of the refried beans. I knew that, but had forgotten that.
I will put some beans on tonight in my crock pot, then tomorrow, just freeze them. easy peasy

Judy, I need your email to send it. send me an email to
and I will get it sent off to you
Hi Patty, you can get vegetarian refried beans that do not have lard in them. They happen to be easy to find. You can also make some really good refried beans by blending red or pinto beans with salsa until smooth.
Please send the gluten free recipes, I have a friend coming and she has to eat gluten free. Thank you.
Just got home. Took Mom to the store, visiting with cousins at the store, then visiting at her house with Mom and my brother.
Our new phones are not working properly. We can hardly hear on them. Our other ones worked so nicely, these are not great. We are taking them back tonight to see if they can help us or not. Since we are on our son's plan, he may be the one that has to do this. But it is only 8 miles away, and I need to hear on this phone. We have had them since Wed. night.
Hubby bought a new tv. Our old one is on the fritz. Then tomorrow he is ordering a new frig with an ice maker...heaven, I am so spoiled.
He also brought me flowers yesterday. Have no idea why, but it was so thoughtful.
I'm making burritos for supper. I think I have some veggie meat. If not, then I will just not have any meat in there.
whole wheat tortillas
refried beans(yes, I know they use lard)...lol
spaghetti sauce from the jar
I will have to make my own cheese sauce though. Simple, using cashews and other stuff. yummy
Maybe some corn and beans with it.
It is hot here. and humid. 87 degrees. It is even hot in the house, or maybe I just got overheated and it takes me so long to cool my body down.
I am over the withdrawal symptoms from going vegan. I feel better already, probably all in my head, but who cares. I don't have that "heavy" feeling from lots of cheese and meats and sat. fat...etc.
My 2 holdouts are real butter and ranch dressing. Guess that is the way it is for now...I have to live a little bit too, right?
OK, going to the phone store.
Have a great evening.
I do have some gluten free recipes saved to my computer. I think I can send them if anyone wants them.
Just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will see if I can send them to you. I believe they are vegan also. But they are gluten free. Quite a few of them. In a pdf file.

The sun is out today. Here I am still in my bathrobe! I've been cleaning house and cooking. I made the CocaCola Cherry Jello salad from HeartSmart. I know I've had it before but not for a long time. It called for chopped pecans and DS#1 has diverticulitis so I added coconut instead. I'm just about to make the Sweet & Sour Cabbage.
DS#1 did break his second toe last time he went clam digging. One way to see the clam holes (where to dig) is to pound a walkingstick or your shovel handle. Well, he crunched down on his toe accidentally. It really hurt, then seemed better but now it's really black & blue. He called urgent care and told them he couldn't afford to come in and they were good enough to tell him how to take care of it.
DH cleaned his bathroom and now he is out working in the garden.
We're itching to get to the festival so we may go this afternoon and then again tomorrow.
About the walking - when I walk on the treadmill half an hour seems an eternity! Lol. I usually watch a tv program to be distracted. When I walk outside along the river with a friend and we're gabbing the whole way the time just flies. I did feel the effects in my backside and upper legs but a little Advil and rest took care of that. There are so many beautiful things to see on that walk. Yesterday there were a lot of fishermen out on the river. We hear they were catching sturgeon.
I love dropping in here and hearing what everyone is up to.
Time to go make that cabbage.

Right at this moment the sun is out here and so is the humidity!
Patty your burger recipes sound great.
Cindy I know that little one must be keeping you and hubby on your toes. And I know you are really enjoying her visit. They just grow up so fast.
Louise I didn't know they had gluten free pizza shops. It is great that you found it.
Glenna you sure get your exercise in! Hauling and picking up hay bales is hot, hard work. I hope you are drinking lots of water. Your dinner sounds great. I love cabbage with carrots and potatoes and your pork will give everything a great flavor! You're making me hungry!!!!
During these hot days I hope everyone is drinking their water. It is important that we keep our bodies hydrated. So keep that water close.
No cooking today, I have different leftovers to munch on.
Hope it is a great day for all!
Catch Ya Later
Good Afternoon Everyone. One time another lady wanted me to go to a vegan cooking class with her and we went. Of course we had to listen to the lecture before we got down to the cooking part. It was just a one time class but did have samples for us to try. They were pretty good. I have never eaten gluten free foods.
Louise, when you eat at someone else's house, how can you be sure you are eating gluten free food? It must be difficult.
All the restaurants in these two little towns are Italian. More pizza places than anything. Of course lots of fish but all deep fried. We went to one restaurant we hadn't tried the other night and I had baked scallops that were wonderful. Tonight we're taking a couple out to supper as they have helped us so much. He likes the place with all the fried food. I did have a meatloaf there but it was also fried. I guess they make it up ahead of time and then fry the slices to warm them up.
It is warm today. I have the air conditioner on in the motor home. I hope it is nice tomorrow because we are going to escape and drive up to New Hampshire. All the books are now gone. Still have some furniture left. We will meet with the realtor this week.
I am ready to move on. We're thinking of going south and stop and see our DS and DIL in N.C. I emailed them to see if they would be home. If they are we can unload some 'stuff' at their house.
Ann in San Diego
It is a sunny, warm day in WV. Great for making hay, which is what I will be doing later this afternoon. DH mowed hay yesterday and is now raking it into rows to bale.
Patty, Your recipes sound interesting. I have made walnut burgers before and enjoyed them. Have you ever made seitan? I have also made cottage patties.
Hope everyone has a wonderful day. I just steamed some veggies for me. And put carrots, potatoes, cabbage, and pork in the slow cooker so supper will be ready when we get done haying.
I walked a mile today. Jan walks for 2 hours, I can hardly get in 20 min...lol
Good Morning Patty and Cindy and all who will follow!
Patty, you are cooking up a storm. You have some very interesting vegan recipes. Cindy, little children are a joy. Today is being spent again getting things ready for the patio sale. Yesterday DD and I went out to lunch at a gluten-free pizza place. Then we went out over friends (the ones who had the 40th wedding anniversary party). We stayed for supper. We had a great time! Not much else is going on. Everyone, please have a wonderful Friday!
good morning girls, well we are up and dressed, ready for the day. the little one ate a whole apple sliced up and some graham crackers. she saw pop-pops candy and wanted that but mamaw said"no" and now we are not so happy.
i have to do my volunteer work at the hoapital this afternoon so she and pop-pop will be a team. he is hoping she will go down for a nap after lunch.
not much else going on. i am not getting much done having a little one here. it has been a lot of fun. children really change your lives. she is here every week-end, this is her first time staying for so long and without her sister.
have a very blessed day everyone...........cindy
Here is the recipe for walnut burger.
You can get all the ingredients for this at your local grocery store. The gluten flour would be by the special flours and grains in your baking aisle.
INstead of making it into slices, I dropped small bits of it into the broth. wanting it more like chunky burger for casseroles and such.
WALNUT GLUTEN (VEGGIE BEEF)
¾ c walnuts
1 c water
1 ½ c gluten flour
2 T whole wheat flour
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp onion powder
¼ tsp garlic powder
5 c water
¼ c unfermented soy sauce or 1 ½ T soy sauce powder
½ tsp sea salt
¾ tsp onion powder
¾ tsp garlic powder
2 T nutritional yeast flakes
Blend walnuts and water on high until creamy. Mix remaining ingredients in a large bowl. Pour walnut liquid into the dry mixture, and quickly knead. Cut into 2 portions, and shape into logs. Cut into ½” slices and drop into boiling broth. Lightly boil for 30 minutes. It freezes well. Use it for beef substitute. BROTH: Stir all ingredients well in a large saucepan.
This is a little bit moist for me, so next time, I will put it in the oven after all this for 30 min.
Here is the lady's site, and she has all kinds of recipes on there. And lots of health info also.

Good morning Girls,
Jan, what a nice long walk you had. 2 hours, my, you sure outwalk me. ..
Here is the recipe for the veggie burgers
2 c. water
1/4 cup soy sauce, unfermented (I use Braggs liquid aminos)
1 Tbsp. olive oil
1 TBsp. turbinado sugar
2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. dried parsley flakes
1 TBsp. nutritional yeast flakes
2 c. quick oats
1/2 c. pecan meal
In a medium saucepan, place all ingredients except oats and pecan meal. Bring to a boil. Add oats and pecan meal. Reduce heat and cook, stirring until thick. Set aside to cool. Form into patties and fry in a little olive oil until golden brown on both sides. Serve in buns or with beef like gravy, ptoatoes and corn.
This is the recipe as I made it. Except that it was a little bit moist inside, so I then baked them in the oven for 30 min. Much better.
Makes 8 nice large patties.
I also think you could add a tsp. of sage and make them sausage patties.
These are so good.
These are ingredients that I use often, being vegan, so I have these in my cupboards. You would need to buy a few of them at a health food store, like the
Braggs and the nutritional yeast. For the pecan meal, just put it in a blender or coffee grinder to make the meal.
