NEW Article! One Health: Faculty Focus Series | Dr. David W.L. Ma

Keep your eyes peeled this fall for a new cookbook designed for families that will make eating plant-based proteins a whole lot easier.

“Plant-Based Recipes Made Easy-Peasy” will be the sixth cookbook published by the Guelph Family Health Study (GFHS) as part of their collaboration with GFHS participant families, The Helderleigh Foundation, Health Canada, George Brown College – Food Innovation Research Studio (FIRSt), Canadian Nutrition Society and Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA). The cookbook includes 30 recipes ranging from appetizers to entrees. Plant-based proteins was a timely topic to choose, says GFHS director Dr. David Ma, which was a new addition to the 2019 Canada’s Food Guide. “We want to help families identify plant-based foods and then show them how to incorporate them into their diet through family-friendly recipes that are quick, easy, and affordable,” Ma says. Also, the cookbooks are more than just recipes but a resource for nutrition information, food skills and much more to help promote health and positive change. Click here to read the FULL ARTICLE!
