Melissa King, author of Easy. Whole. Vegan. and creator of the blog My Whole Food Life, never imagined that she’d end up writing a cookbook or starting a food blog one day. “My idea of cooking was warming up store-bought veggie burgers,” says King, who was a vegetarian for 16 years. It wasn’t until her two young daughters were diagnosed with severe health issues—milk-protein allergy, acid reflux, malabsorption, and “failure to thrive”—that she and her husband sought out alternatives. “We started researching the ingredients in our food. We were shocked at what we found,” says King. “It appeared that processed foods marketed as ‘healthy’ were actually just the opposite.” The whole family switched to a whole foods, vegan, gluten-free diet. Both of King’s daughters started to thrive, and the family hasn’t looked back. In her new book, King shares her favorite family-friendly, easy-to-throw-together recipes such as White Bean & Zucchini Burgers, Avocado & Chickpea Stuffed Cucumbers, Chocolate Raspberry Brownies, and this yummy breakfast classic with a fall twist.
