30+ Simple (No Equipment) Plant-Based Recipes [E-book]

Hey there beautiful friend!

Today I’m super excited to share with you a project that has been in the works for 4-5 months now.


For the humanitarian project, Nourishing Roots (which I put together before I embarking across the world and ‘doing good’ at a holistic cancer clinic in Thailand), it was part of the mission to collaborate with my FAVORITE non-profit organization Organics4Orphans and design a recipe book for villagers who have limited equipment and only a number of fruits and vegetables to utilize in their kitchens.

If you’ve missed me raving on and on about this organization, listen up: 

Organics4Orphans teaches poverty-stricken, low-income communities in the 50 poorest nations of the world how to 1) grow their own food, 2) care for the orphans and widows of the community, and 3) use that biodynamic, organic food as their medicine to prevent the type of ails which take thousands of lives every year and contribute to the orphan issue.

Some of the updates/pictures that have been sent my way include the story of the man below, who is with his kids (gratefully) after restoring his health with green smoothies.


By teaching communities how to heal themselves through nature, they are preventing villagers from flocking to urban locations and accumulating diseases of affluence from western-type diets and lifestyles. (Plus, this ensures they take care of those in need, mainly the orphans and widows.)

So with that basic overview, can you see why I am SO excited to be in collaboration with the brilliant founders, Dale and Linda Bolton? They have in motion the type of organization I have had my heart set on creating for years now, and it is thriving. #SoExcited. 


My job, then, as a foodie and health-food fanatic, was to create a recipe book that could utilize the top 50 foods grown in the region of Kenya, Africa… but with very little equipment.

That’s right. The only equipment used in this recipe book follow: BeautifulFruitBowl1

  • Knife
  • Cutting Board
  • Oven
  • Bowl
  • Cutlery

Really. But guess what!? It is still one of the most creative and delicious-looking recipe books I’ve had the honor of putting together, and therefore that’s why I’m sharing it with YOU!

(Also because a few friends have asked for a simple recipe book with simple recipes because they “can’t be bothered to spend more than 7 minutes in the kitchen”… Men.)

Check out the main 50 foods used in this cookbook (which can be grown in rural areas in Africa thanks to Organics4Orphans OAT program):
