Special Video Recipes from Katherine Lawrence


Featuring T. Colin Campbell Foundation/eCornell Plant-Based Nutrition Instructor Team Leader and PCRM Instructor—Katherine Lawrence

Katherine Lawrence

This special blog contains four VegNews videos of Katherine preparing some super-delicious vegan dishes, most of which will come in very handy for holiday dessert ideas.

Some are closer to 4Leaf than others—but none contain ANY animal products, they look great and I recommend that you try them all. First of all, meet Katherine; the following excerpts were taken from her own website at plantbasedhealth.com

She grew up in Louisiana and joined the Air Force after graduating from college as an Aerospace Engineer.  After 4 years on active duty in places like Florida, Kansas, Saudi Arabia and Iraq; she joined Bell Helicopter in Texas, where she resides today.

Not a healthy eater until recently, she has always had a passion for cooking and food —and was once well-known for her strawberry cream cheese pie and chicken & sausage gumbo, two of her favorites. But that was before she learned the powerful truth about plant-based nutrition.

In 2006, Katherine began to have severe abdominal pain.  After several misdiagnoses over 5 months, her doctor determined she had severe endometriosis. He told her there was no cure for endometriosis and she must have surgery to remove it.  Furthermore, she would have to take medicine to put her into early menopause in order to keep it from coming back.  He also advised that she would eventually need a hysterectomy.

But Katherine chose another route—she learned about plant-power to prevent and/or reverse a plethora of food-driven diseases. After 5 weeks on the new diet, she went in for the laproscopy.  As expected, the doctor saw evidence of the scarring and the adhesion around her colon, BUT 95% of the endometriosis was gone.  He was amazed!

How many times have we heard similar stories about medical doctors being amazed when their patients adopt a whole foods, plant-based diet to take charge of their own health?

Katherine began studying nutrition profusely and obtained her certificate in Plant Based Nutrition from The T. Colin Campbell Foundation and eCornell.  She also studied at the world-reknown Kushi Institute in Massachussetts.  In 2008, she was accepted to become an instructor for The Cancer Project, created by PCRM, a national non-profit in Washington, DC.  She is currently an active instructor at the T. Colin Campbell Foundation AND at PCRM (Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine).

Most recently, she has started doing monthly videos of vegan dishes for VegNews.com There are other dishes featured on the same website but, to my knowledge, the only one doing 100% vegan dishes is Katherine.

The first video features a recipe that she found in The Great Life Cookbook, which was co-authored by one of her T. Colin Campbell Foundation & eCornell fellow instructors, Lewis Freedman.

Now, watch Katherine as she effortlessly prepares this delicious treat:

Vegan Pumpkin Pudding

Moving on, Katherine will now prepare three more dishes, including one main-course and two more deserts. Each video runs about 2 to 5 minutes. Watch for her monthly videos at VegNews.com

Vegan Quinoa and Bean Enchiladas
