Collection:  Adult Non-Fiction

What if one simple change could save you from heart disease, diabetes, and cancer?  For decades, that question has fascinated a small circle of impassioned doctors and researchers and now, their life-changing research is making headlines in the hit documentary Forks Over Knives. Their answer? Eat a whole-foods, plant-based diet could save your life.

After reading some reviews about Forks Over Knives, I was intrigued to find out more about this notion of  a plant-based diet, so I picked up a copy of the book at the library recently.  Paging through the recipes included, there were many that sounded tasty.  In particular, the soups section lists Sweet Potato Bisque, Split Pea Soup, and Savory Squash Soup that sound delightful.  There is also a recipe for Hummus that I would like to try.  The book also includes plenty in the bakery line, with Pumpkin Bread Pudding and Ginger Peach Muffins.  I’m not sure if I am ready to give up some of my favorite carnivore-based meals yet, but overall, the array of delicious sounding foods in the book lead me to believe that it is entirely possible to eat a plant-based diet and be content.
