Update #1: 5/20/2012
WOW!!! Thank you for ALL of your pledges on this project. Thank you also for the wonderful suggestions on EXPANDING this project.
I now want to expand this project to include a Vegan Soul Food iPhone and Android App (published in the App Store and Android Market) and a Vegan Soul Food Cooking Video, ALL based on the Vegan Soul Food - Recipe Book - Vol. 1.
To make the App and cooking Video a reality, check out the ADDITIONAL REWARDS you can receive by making your pledge in support of the Vegan Soul Food VIDEO and APP development project (to the right of this page). Please continue to share this project with your friends, family, and associates on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, etc., and on your blogs!
You don't have to be "vegan" or "a vegan" to eat like this. Delicious and energetic Vegan Soul Food.
After tasting the delicious and healthy Vegan Soul Food from 'A Taste of Life' at the Hollywood Farmers Market (in Los Angeles, CA), I created the Vegan Soul Food Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Vegan-Soul-Food/304506741868). It started as a "fan page" just to show support for the Vegan Soul Food movement and to share photos with my friends, fans, supporters, and family - then I began to feature all kinds of vegan recipes and photos of vegan food on the page.
Coming from a family that loves to cook, for years I thought the family "cooking gene" passed over me. But after experimenting with various dishes and creating vegan versions, I began to share photos of my creations on the Vegan Soul Food facebook page. I was very surprised by the response. I immediately began to receive demands for recipes. The more photos I share on my Vegan Soul Food facebook page, the more I receive demands for recipes. I feel like a "Natural Vegan Chef" especially since I have no formal training in this area, I just happened to grow up in a household with AMAZING soul food cooks. My upbringing coupled with a passion for crafting vegan recipes has grown organically.
I love sharing this delicious (and healthy) way of eating with my friends, family and associates.
Many of my Vegan Soul Food recipes are documented and ready to be distributed to you (in eBook and print publication form). I thought sharing this project on kickstarter would be a fun way to gauge REAL interest in my recipes. Production has already begun. Distribution will take place almost immediately after the funding of this project.
Please don''t hesitate to ask me any questions about this project. I look forward to answering your questions.
"In addition to what is considered "traditional soul food", ALL vegan food is soul food. Vegan food = sun food. Plant based food."
