Nestled high in the hills of Malibu, California, The Ranch is annually ranked among the best wellness spas in the world because of its unique combination of luxury, rejuvenation and weight loss. Through intensive physical exercise complemented by nourishing plant-based meals, guests leave The Ranch feeling both physically and mentally transformed, having shed unwanted pounds and inches, and with a newfound healthy glow and peace of mind.
The Ranch Malibu, the healthy lifestyle company featuring results-oriented fitness and wellness programs, is delighted to announce the brand’s newest cookbook, “FOOD FOOD FOOD,” available for purchase in March. Bringing The Ranch’s delicious, plant-based cuisine to kitchens everywhere, “FOOD FOOD FOOD” provides readers with more than 100 easy-to-follow recipes, nutritional information and tips and tricks from The Ranch’s dedicated and knowledgeable chefs, so that everybody can create an environment at home that supports their commitment to health.
“We are thrilled to be releasing our next cookbook! The culinary experience at The Ranch is often the biggest concern for guests before coming to the program, and the highlight once they are here due to our incredibly talented culinary team. Our alumni have been asking for a new cookbook for some time now and we are delighted to share this new collection of recipes with them, but also help build overall awareness for a plant-conscious approach to eating and make it accessible to everyone,” says Sue Glasscock, Chief Creative Director and Co-Founder of The Ranch Malibu.
Since the release of the property’s first cookbook, “The Ranch at Live Oak Cookbook,” which was published in 2014, The Ranch chefs have continued to develop a significant portfolio of new recipes. “FOOD FOOD FOOD” was created with an emphasis on easy-to-make recipes, using easy-to-find ingredients so that anyone can take a more plant-conscious approach at home. With more than 100 delicious recipes and stunning full-color photography by The Ranch’s very own staff, friends and family – who also served as recipe testers – this new cookbook is great for those looking for healthy but satisfying dishes that are sure to please every palate.
“FOOD FOOD FOOD” offers a variety of options for every meal of the day, along with snacks, desserts, dressings, hot sauces, and seasonal entertaining menus. Following The Ranch’s food philosophy, recipes add the finest fruits, vegetables, grains, pulses, legumes, and seeds to your daily diet while eliminating meat, gluten, soy, dairy, and processed sugars and diet sweeteners. Through this whole food approach, chefs pack nutritional density and amazing flavor into every bite.
“Much like our philosophy at The Ranch, this cookbook is meant to offer a beautiful and nurturing guide to healthy living, particularly in the kitchen. We believe in a simple, yet highly effective approach to well-being, and want to teach people that there isn’t always a straightforward solution for health. In our minds, well-being is about learning what works for you and this cookbook can act as your guide,” says Glasscock.
Complete with a fun and light-hearted “Goat Rating Scale,” each recipe was tested and perfected by Ranch staff, alumni, family, and friends of the program to ensure they were easy to follow for any home chef. Highlights include Banana Blueberry Muffins, Almond Pepita Breakfast Bars, Sweet Potato Hash, The Ranch Burrito Bowl, Eggplant Stacks with Macadamia Nut Ricotta, Vegan Mac & Cheese, Caramelized Onion & Fig Pizza, Quinoa Tahini Balls with Chocolate Chips and Raw Carob Truffles.
“FOOD FOOD FOOD” also lays out tips, tools and seasonally-inspired dishes using only the freshest ingredients so that readers can create plant-based meals that not only support health but are delicious, easy and beautiful. The result is a cookbook that allows readers to practice The Ranch’s simple, no-fuss approach to healthy living at home.
