When Michael Greger's heart-diseased grandmother recovered on the low-fat Pritikin diet, it set him on a mission to promote the healing power of food. Now the bestselling author of Forks Over Knives has created this cookbook that puts his research into action. This recipe collection merges cutting-edge science with everyday ingredients from the supermarket to help you and your family eat your way to better health and a longer life.
With more than 100 easy-to-follow recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks, The How Not to Die Cookbook focuses on whole-food plant-based nutrition. Rooted in the latest nutrition science, this beautifully photographed cookbook offers delicious foods that help prevent and reverse many of the world's deadliest diseases.
A founding member and Fellow of the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, Dr. Michael Greger is a physician, New York Times bestselling author, and internationally recognized speaker on nutrition, food safety, and public health issues. He has lectured at the Conference on World Affairs, testified before Congress, and was invited as an expert witness in Oprah Winfrey's infamous meat defamation trial.
As founder of the website Nutrition Facts, he has distilled a huge body of literature into a straightforward narrative -- a feat only possible through cherry picking one of the nutrition industry's most gainfully-employed fallacies. Nevertheless, Greger makes an exhaustive case for using food to thwart the world's deadliest diseases and reassures readers that -- far from being tinfoil hat territory -- being wary of the profit-driven "medical-industrial complex" is justified.
