Autism Cookbook Recipes – 290 pages of recipes!
Well-designed recipes are the key to our students’ cooking success. Everything is set out in small steps and simple language. Nothing is left to guesswork. Now you can share this success in your own home or school using our Coach in the Kitchen cookbook.
Our recipes suit the eating habits and enhance the health of students in our cooking school for adults and teens on the autism spectrum. Most people (with or without autism) don’t eat enough fruits, vegetables or whole grains. We’ve successfully addressed this in our cooking school by presenting recipes that blend whole grains with refined grains in baked goods, so that fibre is present without neglecting texture or flavour. We’ve also found that fruits and vegetables previously shunned are accepted when garnished with appealing sauces or baked in desserts.
Recognizing that people on the autism spectrum often have highly idiosyncratic eating habits, the 290 pages of recipes in our cookbook include a wide range of foods. There’s something here for everyone—for those who love pasta, or breaded foods, or cheese, pizza, chicken, sausage or rice; for those who like baked goods or who only eat gluten-free or casein-free food, or GFCF. We’ve covered all bases in the consumption tendencies of ASD, but done so without compromising nutrition.
