Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn, MD rose to prominence a decade ago with the publication of his New York Times bestselling book, Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease. It documented research and science behind his advocacy of whole food, plant-based nutrition. Thousands of heart patients owe their lives to his groundbreaking findings.
Patient compliance with Dr. Esselstyn’s dietary protocols remains the critical factor in the success of his program. To that end, Dr. Esselstyn’s wife and daughter – Ann Crile Esselstyn and Jane Esselstyn – took to the kitchen to create a series of recipes that prove as delightful for the taste buds as they are to the blood vessels that sustain heart function. The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook makes their culinary expertise available to the general public.
Although my husband and I (mercifully) do not suffer from heart disease, we adopted a principally whole foods plant based diet in October 2016. I’ve really enjoyed sampling Ann and Jane’s creations and found their instructions really easy to follow. Their commentaries about each recipe brought a smile to my face!
If you’ve adopted the whole food plant-based diet or plan to do so, this cookbook would be a worthy addition to your bookshelf.
