The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook
by Neal Barnard and Robyn Webb
In Dr. Neal Barnard’s Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook, the country’s leading diabetes team weighs in on America’s hottest dietary trend. The cookbook is based on a landmark two-year study conducted by Dr. Barnard, which showed that a vegan diet more effectively controls type 2 diabetes. In fact, it‘s also beneficial for weight loss, the reversal of heart disease, and the improvement of many other conditions. Dr. Barnard and nutritionist Robyn Webb now offer easy, delicious meals to improve your health.
Featuring 125 flavorful recipes, readers will find all-occasion dishes that use familiar ingredients and require minimal effort. All recipes are free of animal products, low in fat, and contain a low-to-moderate glycemic index.
Barnard and Webb explain how diet changes can have such dramatic health effects and provide simple ways to get started. With convenient menus, scientifically proven advice, and inspiring stories from real people who have used Barnard’s recommendations to turn their health around, there’s no better cookbook to help you eat well and feel great.
I have to admit that I was a bit put off by the cover. But I'm always on the look-out for lower fat vegan recipes. This book delivers just that. I didn't really need the background information, I'm already vegan. But it was a good reinforcement. I have really enjoyed the recipes I've tried so far. I do modify them, but I modify almost everything. They also don't require many 'specialty' ingredients, which is nice. My recommendation would be to put a nice picture of a finished recipe on the cover since that's my favorite part of the book. Although I do 'get' that they're trying to promote the healthy part. I would love to see more recipes from the co-author.
