Comfort food from a Campbell, the royal family of high-nutrition food choices? Yep, all this and Sweet Potato Pancakes, Poppy Seed Dressing, and Old-Fashioned Pumpkin Pie, too. Kim Campbell (she’s married to Nelson Campbell, director of the film PlantPure Nation; he’s one of the sons of T. Colin Campbell, PhD, the nutritional biochemist who coined the term “whole food plant-based diet”) has a new cookbook called PlantPure Comfort Food. We discuss this and her real-world approach to nutritional wellbeing, as well as how to cook when there seems to be no time, the creative process of a recipe developer, and making healthy eating (or in these inflationary days, doing any eating at all) affordable.
In addition, we talk about Kim’s life, about marrying into a family that, early on, was simply great fun, but that over time became highly revered in the vegetarian world and beyond. And she gives us previews of exciting stuff about the pop in the PlantPure world, such as a line of new dry products — enchilada sauce, peanut sauce, veggie burger blend, cookie and muffin mix — and Nelson’s February 2023 documentary, From Food to Freedom, about a group of type 2 diabetes who come together for a 10-day journey to health and healing.
