EAT Magazine’s 2016 BEST GIFT PICK, YUM: plant-based recipes for a gluten-free diet makes healthy eating delicious, even if you or your loved ones have allergies or food restrictions. YUM is a perfect gift for anyone desiring to live a healthier, more vibrant or conscious life.
“YUM is a masterpiece in several ways” (Sandra Cabot MD). The soulfully written 368-page lifestyle/art book is perhaps the first entirely plant-based book that does not promote veganism or any other special diet. With its one-of-a-kind 10-page Special Diet & Allergy Chart and all recipes easy enough for a twelve-year-old to make, YUM makes navigating multiple dietary needs a breeze.
Kids, teens and adults alike enjoy relishing in the beauty and deliciousness the book has to offer, whether or not they have special dietary needs. However, YUM is a game-changing “must-have” for those who live with food sensitivities, autoimmune challenges, heart disease, cancer, autism, ADD, or diabetes.
“This is not just a cookbook, it is a blueprint for the way forward in all realms. Whether intentional or not, Theresa not only made her debut in the culinary world, she blasted a way for a new way of thinking. In my opinion, YUM’s underlying message and motivation is really about social, political, economic and environmental justice, healing and love.”
– Jane Grueber, Author of “Recipes of My Home”

MORE ABOUT YUM…
YUM: plant-based recipes for a gluten-free diet has a scope that extends far beyond the typical cookbook in any genre. Centred around “Bio-Individuality,” YUM honours the reality that we each have differing health and lifestyle needs, YUM is not about telling you what you SHOULD eat, but instead is all about sharing with you the magical land of possibilities of what you CAN eat.
‘Inclusive Cooking’ – Delicious Food Everyone Can Enjoy
While all the recipes in the book are plant-based, wheat & gluten-free, diary-free, egg-free, sugar-free, potato-free, gum-free, MSG-free, margarine-free, etc., this does not mean that you need to be vegetarian, vegan, or anything else for that matter. In fact, it surprises many people that while I do eat mostly plant-based foods, I am not vegan or vegetarian myself! All this is explained about in the book when I share more about my story.
Nicassio’s collection of more than 180 recipes that are plant-based and gluten-free offers help to those who suffer from dietary restrictions.~Kirkus Reviews
