The building consensus is that 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, dietitian Sharon Palmer provides 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 and daily action alerts; and 75 original plant-based recipes for every meal—all with complete nutritional data.
Sharon Palmer ia dietitian, editor of the award-winning health newsletter Environmental Nutrition, and a nationally recognized nutrition expert.
