Never Worry About What’s For Dinner Again!

I stood staring, fridge light glaring at me, desperately trying to think of something to make for dinner. “Have you figured out dinner yet?” my 4-year old daughter Katie asks me. Figure out, not make it. She gets that phrase from me. Finding the right recipes that are quick, healthy and delicious can be a daunting task. The truth is that half of the work in preparing a meal is thinking about what to prepare. Most people make the same five meals over and over again because 1) they know where to find the ingredients in the store, 2) they can cook those meals faster than meals they’re not familiar with, and 3) they know the meals will turn out well.

If you’ve found you’re making the same trusty recipes each week, it may be time to try some new recipes. In the 31 Dinner Recipes cookbook, I share with you my family’s favorite dinner recipes. I guide you step-by-step through each recipe with instructional videos and colorful photos. There is something for every mood, season, and the amount of time you have.

It’s more than just recipes … it’s a guide for learning:

  • How to transform classic meals into vegan meals without compromising the flavor.
  • How to make the right substitutions for ingredients you don’t have or don’t like.
  • How to cut time in the kitchen so you can spend more time with your friends and family.
  • Where to buy affordable ingredients.
  • What kitchen equipment will give you the best results.
  • How to store and reheat leftovers, so your food never goes to waste.
  • And so much more!

What’s included:

  • Over 60 plant-based and grain-free recipes including 31 entrees, soups, sides, and homemade staples.
  • 60 video tutorials with cooking tips, tricks, and taste tests.
  • Colorful photos for every recipe.
  • Nutritional information and calorie breakdown for every recipe.
  • Resources section with the kitchen tools I personally own and use.

About the author

Hi, I’m Petra. I’m a Registered Holistic Nutritionist, a Raw Food Chef, a recipe developer, a food photographer, and a blogger at Nutrition Refined. I love to create recipes from whole foods, as nutrient-dense as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions

How is the book delivered?

As soon as you place an order, you will be redirected to a page where you can download the PDF version of the cookbook. If you choose the Book & Video bundle, each recipe will have a link to a private video.

I don’t have a lot of time for complicated recipes. Can I still use this cookbook?

Yes! While I like to make my meals from scratch, I understand that life gets busy. So, in the cookbook I share time saving tips as well as shortcuts to make homemade meals quick and easy. Don’t have time to make pasta sauce from scratch? Use jarred. Not into cooking with dried beans? Use canned. As you get more experience and familiarize yourself with the recipes, you’ll get faster too.

Can I find most of the ingredients at a local grocer?

Yes, you will be able to find all ingredients in a standard North American grocery store. If you’re more comfortable shopping online, that’s fine too as I provide links to the ingredients I typically use.

What if I don’t like the book once I buy it?

Since E-books are intangible and can be downloaded at anytime after purchase, they are considered “used” on purchase, and cannot be refunded. If there was a purchasing error or you’re having problems with your download, please, email me at and I’ll help you get it sorted.

Can I get the book as a physical copy instead of an electronic E-book?

I wanted to get the 31 Dinner Recipes Cookbook out to people who have been asking for a cookbook with Nutrition Refined recipes for a long time. An E-book was the fastest way to do that. One day in the future, I hope to publish a physical cookbook. But for now, I am excited to share this book in electronic form.

What recipes are included in the cookbook?

Check out the table of contents  for a list of all the recipes included in the cookbook. You will be able to find classic recipes from all types of cuisines including Mexican, Indian, Italian, Spanish, Chinese, Thai, Japanese, Middle Eastern, German, British, and many more! All the recipes are plant-based, grain-free (with the exception of two side dishes), and refined sugar-free.

Can I find the recipes on your website?

There are some classics, such as Mac & Cheese, Alfredo Fettucine, or Cream of Mushroom Soup that I just couldn’t leave out of the cookbook. However, there are plenty of new recipes that will never be shared on my blog.

Is there someone I can contact if I ever have questions?

Absolutely! You can reach me with any questions you have at

Sounds great! I’m ready to choose!
