As the Silver-Chic Chef, I love to keep it simple and healthy. I firmly believe in the power of #AgingBackwards with plant-based recipes. This section of my website is all about doing what is easy and what helps you look and feel vibrant and young, while celebrating what tastes great. Who knew tasting great could also have you feeling great? Most of my recipes require very few ingredients and are things you could make with what is in your fridge. Keepin’ it easy. Keepin’ it healthy. Keepin’ it real and keepin’ it fun. It’s time to take back your health! I have made these recipes on WGN-TV, WCIU-TV, FoodyTV, Good Morning LALA Land, food fests and corporations all across America.

Here are three brands that I love.

I love to cook with ForA:Butter! It is the first and only Michelin-chef approved, rich and decadent plant-based butter. It cooks, bakes, browns, and clarifies just like dairy butter. Available at West Coast Whole Foods or their site, ForA:Butter is the best for all those airy, flaky croissants and buttery biscuits.

I love ABillionVeg because it allows your restaurant and food reviews to go directly to the restaurants. They use your feedback to create more great vegan options. GET THE APP and use the referral code: ELYSABETH

I love Veestro because when you don’t have time to cook vegan at home, you can have healthy, delcious options delivered right to your door. Use the CODE ALFANO for 20% off your first order.
