This very special cookbook book contains over 125 delicious, life-changing whole food, plant-based recipes as well as valuable cooking information and more. To quote from the introduction: ‘This book is not just a collection of recipes — it is a collection of wisdom around a lifestyle of cooking, family and health‘.
We are very fortunate that Ann and Jane Esselstyn, the wife and daughter of Caldwell Esselstyn, the author of Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease have teamed up to co-author this book.
Many of the recipes are simple to make, without requiring a huge list of ingredients, yet very tasty. The book also contains very useful information on how to get started cooking healthy, whole food, plant-based meals.
A bonus feature of the book is the powerful foreword by Caldwell Esselstyn. In a little over two pages he concisely presents his convincing arguments for adopting a whole food, plant-based diet. To quote from the forward: “Even if you don’t suffer from heart disease, this nutritional lifestyle will give you optimal health and well-being”
In addition to the wonderful recipes the chapter ‘Getting Started in Your Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Kitchen’ provides great information on simple, practial ways to ready the kitchen and pantry for this type of cooking. It also contains ‘Our 12-Step Progam for Plant-Perfect Eating‘ which provides a very clear set of guidlines for this nutritional approach.
Please do yourself a favor and have a look at this book. It will make it easier for you and your loved ones to transition to a whole food, plant-based diet.
