Beets, Kale, and Chard by Emelyn Deal


One of the themes of this book is that cooking is easy and that vegan cooking is easy, and that men and boys should be able to cook for themselves and for the goddess in their lives – whether it is their busy, over-worked mother, their girl friends, or their wives.

Women like vegan food because they are always thinking about controlling their weight.

Women and girls like men and boys who can cook. Compatibility in the kitchen may indicate compatibility in other rooms. Cooking together makes a perfect first date.

So, boys and men: Learn some vegan recipes and cook them up for the goddess in your life, and they will love you for it.
