Documentary Filmmaker, Maryann De Leo. They recently released their book, Alive
and Cooking – An Easy Guide to Health for You and Your Parents, which
provides more than 100 easy, healthful, and budget-friendly recipes,

What a great month to start our column! The month we celebrate love,
cooking is love – expressed through food.
Leeann Lavin, who wrote the forward to our book, said, “Food is love.”
We could not agree more! We’d like to think as food as the celebration
of life and love!
I always say: The Main Ingredient Is Always Love! and the title of our column this month for February is:
The Main Ingredient Is Love
That makes me so happy!
Our recipe is our chocolate chip cookie recipe on page 246 and 247 where we use Garbanzo bean flour!
It is delicious with a healthy twist!
Sending you heart felt hugs for February!
I frequently make these living-food cookies using almond meal I have leftover after making almond milk. I never wanted to waste the almond meal, and this is a wonderful way to use it. You can make these into small snack bars as well. Make sure to store these cookies in the refrigerator.

This recipe is one of many raw recipes in my book, “How To Be A Healthy Vegetarian.”

4. Roll logs in coconut.
5. Wrap logs in parchment or wax paper and then in foil. 6. Chill until firm.

I use Garden of Life brand protein powder.
Gently press cookies in coconut after they are sliced, for a more coconut-y flavor.
Everyone asks me where they can get a copy of my book.
