About The Blog

I named this blog The PocketBook because my Mum used to keep all her recipes through the years in a pocketbook she kept in the kitchen.

I’ve been adding more recipes from friends, and also developing and creating new ones focused on special health conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes and some others.

It is my desire to help you learn how to cook recipes according to your restricted diet and health issues.

My purpose is to use original recipes and make a twist using healthier products, with local and fresh ingredients you can find in the UK, USA, South America or any other country you visit.


Nowadays it’s overwhelming the range of sources that specialize in healthy diets!

In my research, I found that a plant-based diet can help special health conditions if the person is willing to change their habits, increase vegetable protein, and reduce the intake of animal protein.

The real challenge for you is to try my recipes yourself, using different ingredients for your special diet.

I will share a list of some brands and products that are healthy and suggested by dietitians, and my experience using those products in the recipes.

Please share with me your restricted diet and I will help you to create recipes especially for you, take the first step and follow me on The PocketBook.blog and enjoy new recipes every week.
