Starchivore Plant-Based Recipes and Meals

Technically the title here should be "Starchivore Whole Food Plant-Based, Beyond Vegan, Recipes and Meals" - that seemed a bit of a mouthful... is that a pun? hehe The definition of starchivore is towards the bottom of the page.

In the months since we have changed our lifestyle to that of a starch predator, LOL, I have spent literally hours online watching videos, put out mostly by other starchivores and vegans, and spent hours reading recipes and listening to podcasts and snippets of speakers at conferences and therefore much of what has shaped our eating habits comes from exposure to so many different peoples' thoughts and advice.

A big believer in the KIS theory in life and in cooking and meals means that you are not likely to find a lot of complicated and gourmet recipes or meals here. There are tons of websites and videos that cater to that and are easy to find and the goal here is just to Keep It Simple as if you don't KIS you may get tired and quit.
