I think it’s important that we all acknowledge that we could eat more fruit and vegetables. Not only are these things good for us but they are also good for the planet. In fact, it’s been suggested that we could all help reduce greenhouse emissions just by cutting down on the amount of meat that we eat.
However, it’s also OK to acknowledge that we often feel bullied by the pro-veggie movement and that “DON’T EAT THAT” is not a helpful response. Forks Over Knives is different it’s all about what you can eat not what you can’t and Chef Del and his myriad collaborators have delivered a holistic program for better, tastier, healthier eating.
Get Some Hard Data
If you’re not convinced then this video from Forks over Knives called “How to Lose Weight Without Losing Your Mind” may help you see the benefits of a better eating regime. This is much longer than our usual clips, so you might want to bookmark it for later use.
My husband was really impressed by this talk. It’s helped us decide together to eat more healthily.
So, The Cookbook?
I think if you buy a cookbook with 300 recipes and can’t find at least one you like – there’s probably something not quite right with your taste buds I am pleased to report that we’ve liked nearly everything that we’ve cooked out of Fork Over Knives – The Cookbook.
My favorite has been the mushroom stroganoff and my husband, surprisingly, elects for the Kale Salad with Maple Mustard Dressing. The kids really like the eggplant “steaks”. So, we give this a family thumbs up and strongly recommend you buy it.
