    This is the BEST whole foods plant based cookbook I have ever cooked from. Pretty much every recipe is a winner.

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Szechuan tempeh and broccoli

    • hbakke on July 07, 2022

      Tempeh was tasty from the marinade, but the effort of making 2 different sauces and a marinade wasn't worth it in the end. I'm not sure if the author is soy sauce averse, but I think prep time (and my patience) could have benefited from replacing a few sauce ingredients with tamari or soy sauce. Not a repeat for me.

  • Umami sauce redux

    • hbakke on July 07, 2022

      Somewhat flavorful, but more watery than I thought it would be.

Publishers Text

From Michael Greger, M.D., FACLM, the author of the New York Times bestseller How Not to Die, comes a four-color, fully illustrated cookbook that shares the science of long-term weight-loss success. Dr. Michael Greger founded the viral website Nutritionfacts.org with the aim to educate the public about what healthy eating looks like and connect them with a community through food-related podcasts, videos, and blogs. Since then, Nutritionfacts.org has grown and so has Dr. Greger's platform. How Not to Die and The How Not to Die Cookbook were instant hits, and now he's back with a new book about mindful dieting--how to eat well, lose, and keep unwanted weight off in a healthy, accessible way that's not so much a diet as it is a lifestyle. Greger offers readers delicious yet healthy options that allow them to ditch the idea of dieting altogether. As outlined in his book How Not to Diet, Greger believes that identifying the twenty-one weight-loss accelerators in our bodies and incorporating new, cutting-edge medical discoveries are integral in putting an end to the all-consuming activity of counting calories and getting involved in expensive juice cleanses and Weight Watchers schemes. The How Not to Diet Cookbook is primed to be a revolutionary new addition to the cookbook industry: incredibly effective and designed for everyone looking to make changes to their dietary habits to improve their quality of life, weight loss notwithstanding.
