I talked about protein – facts and fantasies – for about half an hour, then got a texted question about whether probiotics can make up for an unhealthy diet. That really got me going…
This video is brought to you courtesy of two of my favorite plant-based culinary and lifestyle heroes: Lani Muelrath and Lee Newlin.
Lani came up with the recipe, in her excellent excellent excellent book The Plant-Based Journey.
And Lee let me film in her beautiful teaching barn at Lee's Healthy Cooking.
Without further ado, whole food, plant-based ice cream in minutes!
Dilip Barman is a Food For Life instructor, plant-based personal chef, food blogger, and president of the Triangle Vegetarian Society.
As a food blogger, Dilip hasn't repeated a meal in over 13 years of daily cooking and blogging.
As a Food For Life instructor, Dilip takes students through both the science and practical skills required to adopt the world's healthiest diet (the only one shown to reverse even advanced heart disease).
And as president of the Triangle Vegetarian Society, Dilip presides over the country's best attended vegetarian Thanksgiving dinner (at Dilip's table, the turkeys also give thanks!).
We chatted about the evidence-based benefits of a plant-based diet, as well as the challenges and how they can be overcome. Enjoy!

Amanda Cushman is not only a great chef, recipe developer, and cooking teacher, but she's a great conversationalist too, as you'll discover in this episode.
She's cooked professionally for over 30 years, and has taken the NC Triangle by storm since relocating here last summer, offering private classes for groups as well as public courses in Raleigh, Chapel Hill, Cary, Morrisville, and Carrboro.
While her culinary style is more “lenient” than my own, we share an appreciation of whole plant foods, and a desire to empower people to “take back their kitchens” and stop outsourcing our most fundamental survival requirement to the processed food and restaurant industries.
