This is the first physician-authored vegan cookbook, featuring 125 recipes for reversing diabetes, improving cholesterol and blood pressure, and permanent weight loss. In Dr. Neal Barnard's Get Healthy, "Go Vegan Cookbook", the country's leading diabetes team weighs in on America's most popular dietary trend: veganism. The cookbook is based on a 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, reversing heart disease, and many other conditions. Now, Dr. Barnard and nutritionist Robyn Webb offer easy, delicious vegan meals to improve your health. With the new dietary programme, not only does diabetes come under better control than ever-sometimes even disappearing altogether-weight falls, too. Cholesterol plummets, and long lost energy returns. All this with a culinary approach that is quick, easy, and delicious. Featuring 125 flavourful recipes, readers will find all-occasion dishes that use ordinary ingredients and take little effort. There's plenty of familiar dishes emphasising vegetables, fruits, pasta, beans, and whole grains. Mediterranean influences will be strongly in evidence, while meats, dairy products, and oils will be noticeably absent. All recipes are free of animal products, are low fat, and have a low-to-moderate glycemic index. There are recipes for breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, desserts, and entertaining. Recipes include: On-the-Go Breakfast Sandwiches, Cinnamon Swirl Oatmeal, Hummus Pizzas, Pretty Stuffed Peppers, Creamy White Bean and Artichoke Dip, Sweet Potato Fries and Black Bean Cakes with Mango Salsa.
