About the Book 

Many of us make poor food choices daily, leading to ill-health, lack of energy, and even sickness and disease. Have you ever thought about healthy cooking and eating and assumed it is too difficult, too expensive, or even too time-consuming? This perspective does not do justice to God’s desire for us to live our lives in abundant health and wellness.

It does not have to be this way, and Dorrel McLaren has set about in her cookbook to show us that Something Different is possible if we choose a healthy diet and couple that with spiritual wellness. The Caribbean-inspired recipes in the book are tasty, inexpensive, and easily accessible to even the newest cook endeavoring to create a healthy meal. Dorrel uses ingredients that can be purchased at most large grocery stores and includes detailed explanations on how to prepare each dish best.

If you want to try Something Different that leads to better health and quality of life, this cookbook is for you! If we “eat with the right attitude,” we can enjoy the full, vibrant, and happy life God intends for us.

“A bowl of vegetables with someone you love is better than steak with someone you hate.” (Proverbs 15:17, NLT)

“This beautifully written gorgeously illustrated cookbook is a definitive text for anyone wanting to learn how to cook delicious easy plant-base meals to enhance their overall health.”

~ Lieutenant Colonel Verona Boucher, USAF, Retired

“As a Clinician who believes and knows what you eat has an effect on your well-being, this cookbook gives you recipes that are wholesome and healthy. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who is looking for something different in their daily cooking experience.”

~Lilieth Occenad, FNP-C, Clinician Family Nurse Practitioner

“Her (Dorrel’s) background in food, nutrition and hospitality predisposes her to an above average knowledge in a plant base diet. Without question, this new cookbook is a must-have for every kitchen.”

~ Leanora Salmon, R.N., Washington Adventist Hospital

Available in PAPERBACK and eBOOK formats.

    “As one who is personally acquainted with Dorrel McLaren, I have had the pleasure of enjoying the delectable cuisines she produces in her kitchen over many years. It is my pleasure to endorse her new cookbook “Something Different”. I have found Dorrel’s main dishes to be original finger liking mouthwatering and with a flare of professionalism in her presentation. At church functions, parties, banquets, or any other venues, her dishes are always sought out and quickly disappear. Her background in food, nutrition and hospitality predisposes her to an above average knowledge in a plant base diet. Without question, this new cookbook is a must-have for every kitchen.”
