What does SOS-free mean?
SOS refers to sugar, oil and salt, the so-called “Evil Trinity”. The suffix “-free” means that I consume a diet that includes no component of the Evil Trinity.

Are you vegan?
Yes, I’ve been vegan since Oct. 15, 2011.

Is a plant-based diet automatically vegan?
Actually not. Plant-based only means that the diet is based on plants. A plant-based diet could still include small quantities of meat, milk or honey. My recipes are always vegan, though.

Which plant-based doctors do you follow? Are you member of a special “camp” (Fuhrman, McDougall, Esselstyn…)?
I don’t actually see myself as a member of a specific camp. I eat a diet that includes a lot of starches, so one could assume that I’m a member of the “McDougall camp”. But I also eat lots of beans and foods that are dense in nutrients, so I could as well be a member of the “Eat to Live”-crew by Fuhrman. I also eat a lot of greens (especially kale!) and that’s so Esselstyn! See what I mean? I just combine the teachings of different plant-based doctors. But the bottom line is always: whole foods plant-based, vegan, SOS-free.

    Love your site! Just curious if this page is still under construction, or if there’s something here that my browser just isn’t showing? Anyway, if the former, hopefully this system will send me an update when it’s finished. 🙂
