A major addition to the hotter-than-ever “plant-based” bookshelf by an accomplished nutrition journalist and dietitian--with 75 whole-foods recipes and a 14-day plan for including more health-promoting, plant-based foods in any kind of diet, from vegan to omnivorous.
The whole-foods, plant-based diet movement is rapidly picking up steam, and for good reason: all of today’s most cutting-edge nutrition research indicates that this way of eating is the healthiest. Whether vegan, vegetarian, or omnivorous with sparing use of meat and dairy, a diet that centers on nutrient-rich fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, and other whole plant foods can protect against--or even cure--heart disease, many cancers, obesity, and more. In The Plant-Powered Diet, Sharon Palmer provides readers with a thorough grounding in the health benefits of powering up on plants and a guide to adapting the principles of a plant-based diet to suit their individual lifestyles and goals.
From the staunch carnivore hoping to skip the meat once or twice a week to the longtime vegetarian who could still afford to eat more actual vegetables, any reader will benefit from Palmer’s careful research, 75 delicious and nourishing recipes, and personalized advice on everything from working out to eating out, including 14 daily “Plant-Powered Action Alerts”--simple suggested activities that readers can put into practice at home, the grocery store, and restaurants to get them excited and informed about powering their bodies on a whole-foods, plant-based diet. The Plant-Powered Diet will help readers make simple changes and extend those changes across a lifetime--a lifetime that will, thanks to the power of plants, be longer, healthier, and happier.
