In the cookbook titled The VB6 Cookbook, by Mark Bittman, such cookbook starts out discussing his life story and how he achieved good health.

He didn't want drugs, which is what the doctor wanted. He didn't want to become a total vegan, which is what the doctor wanted. So, he developed the VB6.
The VB6 consists of being a vegan throughout the day. Then, be a flextarian for dinner around 6 pm. The author uses the term flexitarian, yet also states to have basically anything you want for dinner. The cookbook stresses to have dinner around 6 pm.
The recipes are easy. I, myself, want to convert some of these recipes for use in my crockpot and microwave!
For breakfast, Bittman has a Cherry Vanilla Smoothie recipe. Only four ingredients are needed: non-dairy milk, vanilla extract, cherries and ice cubes.
For lunch, there is a recipe called Peanutty Chopped Salad, for all of you peanut butter lovers out there! A very unique recipe.
Then, there is a lunch recipe for Grains Marinara. Such recipe calls for any grain you want with a little Italian flair.
Spaghetti with Bean Bolognese is basically a bulked up spaghetti marinara using beans. I, personally, like pinto.
As for dinner, Pane Cotto is a super recipe. The main ingredient is bread. Also, it includes veggies, eggs, spices and seasonings.
Banh Mi Meatball Salad is good for parties when you are low on cash. You can buy already made meatballs in the freezer section.
Following, Steak Au Poivre with Mushrooms, is exactly that... steak with mushrooms! Check your grocery store's circular ad for sales on steak.
Instructions on how to make breadcrumbs are toward the closing. I find this useful, especially when I want to make French onion soup and forgot to buy breadcrumbs.
I give this cookbook an A . Although I could never be a full-time vegan, I can incorporate some of the vegan recipes into my daily diet, in hopes of becoming healthier.
