The following collection of resources can provide you further reading and the science and benefits behind a whole food plant based diet.
Please note that these sites are not all 100% plant based, but they are all excellent resources for additional whole food recipes. Some recipes may include dairy which you can either skip or swap for your favorite plant-based milk or tofu. Additionally, some of these sites feature high fat recipes including the addition of overt oils. As you have learned here at The Green Spork, in most dishes oil can simply be deleted or replaced with water, however this is not the case with baked goods. Keep these things in mind as you explore these excellent blogs for additional plant-based options.
