Thanks for visiting VeganCoach.com! I'm your hostess-with-the-mostest Patty Knutson, but my friends call me Sassy. ;o)
Let me guess, you have been wandering around the web searching through ZOUNDS of websites.
Now, you have stumbled into our cozy home and you're wondering if we have what you are looking for, right?
Well, let me cut to the chase to save you some time...
Here you will find all the tools YOU need to prepare delicious (and nutritious!) homestyle vegan vittles quickly and easily.
Hubby Jeff and I went veg*n back in 1994. Yes, that was a long freaking time ago! So I understand EXACTLY what you are looking whether you are just starting out, have been around the block for a while, or are more "well seasoned".
Absolutely everything you read about or learn here at this website comes from personal (or professional) experience.
So if I don't know something, I won't talk about it or recommend it. Period. Exclamation point!
"This is the best cooking site EVER! This is cooking. This is what cooking is! I am helping a lot of people transition to veganism right now, and I will forward your site to ALL of them!"
-- Antoine from Quebec, Canada
1. Learn to build your very own recipes from scratch.
The Vegan Cooking Guide provides a long list of foods like vegetables, beans, and grains, with detailed instructions on how to clean and prep each food, suggested cooking techniques, and "Flavor Matches" so you can build your own unique recipes on-the-fly, quickly and easily.
For instance, ever get bored with sweet potatoes? Ho-Hum. (Yawwwwn.)
A visit to my Cooking Guide can help! There's a world of delicious ideas just waiting for you to glam onto. In this example, you'd simply find "sweet potatoes" on the food list, and then follow the link to mix and match suggested flavors and cooking techniques.
Kind of like Garanamals!! ;o)
There is a ton of good information packed into our Cooking Guide, so be sure to read our Cooking Guide Tutorial to understand the best way to make use of it all.
I promise you'll learn to whip up fantastic new and unique dishes while you add to your cooking skills every single time you step into the kitchen; skills that will stay with you for the rest of your life.
"OMG! Sassy, your site ROCKS! It's well organized & linked up w/ TONS of helpful hints & flavorful tidbits. The beets info on your site made my dinner simple & scrumptious. Thank you! I'm totally bookmarking you. ;~)"
- Jeri from the great state of Texas
2. Improve an ol' standby recipe!
Surely you've found a recipe or two that you like, but it just needs SOMETHING -- you can't put your finger on it. Visit the Vegan Cooking Guide, click on the main ingredient of your recipe, then use the "Flavor Matches" to find the foods, herbs and spices that match perfectly with your chosen ingredient -- and add one (or more) of them to your recipe. You'll create a new recipe all your own!
Or maybe you just need a delicious sauce to make your recipe sing. Or go one step further and learn to create nutritious and yummy sauces from scratch without a recipe in sight - sauces that make each and every meal special and unique.
3. Discover a new recipe you can fall in love with.
This recipe collection may not be large, but I think you'll enjoy preparing each and every one of them. All recipes on this site have been tested and tweaked over the course of a decade until they've received a thumbs-up from my non-vegetarian friends - and personal chef clients.
Follow this link to find Vegan Recipes that you're bound to fall in love with.
4. Cooking yummy food is one half the equation.
It's also important to focus on proper Vegan Nutrition so you can create meals that will support your good health.
"We're completely mad about your site. We love every moment of it. Keep up the wonderful work of educating us."

5. We all need a little help now and then.
If you'd like some assistance with your diet, then you may be interested in Vegan Coaching.
Do you need someone you can call on to take you by the hand and walk you through the maze of information that you are constantly bombarded with? Or maybe you simply don't have the time to figure out which foods are best for your unique nutritional needs or weight loss plans?
