Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Synopsis:

Harness the power of whole-plant foods to lead a long and vibrant life—whether youre vegan, vegetarian or omnivorous.

Eat more whole plants. This simple recommendation is at the heart of a building consensus: The healthiest diet is a plant-based diet. Plants have spent millions of years evolving their defenses against disease. Now, studies indicate that by eating whole, minimally processed plant foods, humans too can gain protection—against everyday illness, diabetes, obesity, depression, mental decline, heart disease, and even cancer.

In The Plant-Powered Diet, registered dietitian Sharon Palmer marshals the most up-to-date findings in nutrition to explain both why you should fill more of your plate with whole-plant foods and how to do so, whether youre a longtime vegan or a committed omnivore. Here is:
• Essential information on the healthiest plant foods—whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and even herbs, spices, chocolate, coffee, tea, and wine
• Advice for navigating the supermarket, kitchen, restaurant menus, on-the-go meals, exercise, and more
• A 14-day meal plan, plus daily action alerts to get you started
• And 75 original plant-based recipes for every meal—all with complete nutritional data.

The Plant-Powered Diet is not a diet youll go “on” today and “off” tomorrow. It is a simple, satisfying, and thoroughly delicious way of eating that can not only last your lifetime—but lengthen it.

Synopsis:

A major step forward for everyone—vegan, vegetarian or omnivore—seeking the lifelong health benefits of plant-powered eating: A complete program that starts today.

Hundreds of studies lead to this one conclusion: The healthiest diet on the planet is a plant-based diet. Plant-based eating has been linked to abundant health benefits, including increased lifespan, a lower risk of heart disease and cancer, and better brain health. Now, for everyone from omnivores who want to cut back on meat and eat more vegetables, to vegans looking to benefit even more from the healthiest plant foods, The Plant-Powered Diet meets all readers where they are, explains the dramatic benefits of eating more plants, and provides an all-in-one guide to re-engineering one’s diet, day by day.

Sharon Palmer, a nationally recognized nutrition expert and editor of the respected wellness newsletter Environmental Nutrition (circulation about 80,000), gives readers the low-down on nutrient-packed plant proteins, whole grains, vegetables, fruits, and plant fats—as well as herbs, spices, chocolate, coffee, tea, and wine. Then she explains exactly how to take the “powerful plants plunge,” with a realistic 14-day plan guiding readers through the supermarket, the kitchen, making school lunches, ordering in restaurant, healthy eating on-the-go, exercise, and more—culminating with 75 original recipes, for every meal, all with complete nutritional data.
