If you’re hungry for more here is a list of resources to learn more about plant-based diets, some of my favorite bloggers with even more tasty veg recipes and my favorite cookbooks to get you started! Happy cooking!
Here are some must sees and reads that help explain a little more about plant-based foods and what all the fuss is about.
First and foremost is The China Study which is one of the most comprehensive studies ever conducted about the effects of animal products on the human body. Dr. Campbell and his partner compared data from 65 Chinese counties in 1973 and 1983. Spoiler alert! What the doctors found was that over a ten year period, as the rise in fast food and animal products began to creep into the diets of former rural areas of China, so did the chronic disease and cancers.
If you’re more of a movie-goer this one’s for you! Based on Dr. Campbell and Caldwell’s research, Forks Over Knives presents the power of food as medicine by following several patients with chronic conditions which were prescribed a whole foods plant-based diet as their main medicine.
