Harness the power of whole-plant foods to lead a long and vibrant life—whether you’re vegan, vegetarian or omnivorous. Eat more whole plants. This simple recommendation is at the heart of a building consensus: The healthiest diet is a plant-based diet. Plants have spent millions of years evolving their defenses against disease. Now, studies indicate that by eating whole, minimally processed plant foods, humans too can gain protection—against everyday illness, diabetes, obesity, depression, mental decline, heart disease, and even cancer. In The Plant-Powered Diet, registered dietitian Sharon Palmer marshals the most up-to-date findings in nutrition to explain both why you should fill more of your plate with whole-plant foods and how to do so, whether you’re a longtime vegan or a committed omnivore. Here is: • Essential information on the healthiest plant foods—whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and even herbs, spices, chocolate, coffee, tea, and wine • Advice for navigating the supermarket, kitchen, restaurant menus, on-the-go meals, exercise, and more • A 14-day meal plan, plus daily action alerts to get you started • And 75 original plant-based recipes for every meal—all with complete nutritional data. The Plant-Powered Diet is not a diet you’ll go “on” today and “off” tomorrow. It is a simple, satisfying, and thoroughly delicious way of eating that can not only last your lifetime—but lengthen it.

Veteran cooking instructor Cathy Fisher guides you in preparing delicious meals made from the most health-promoting ingredients on the planet! Her recipes call for 100% plant foods: vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, nuts and seeds, and contain no animal-derived ingredients: meat (beef, pork, fowl, fish, seafood), eggs, honey, or dairy products (cow's milk, cream, butter, cheese, yogurt). They are also gluten-free and "SOS-free" (made with no added salt, oil, or sugar). These are dishes that most of us have been eating all of our lives--they've just been given a makeover! Although Cathy emphasizes whole foods instead of overly processed foods, flavor is not sacrificed: her recipes simply call for more healthful sources of sodium (salt), richness (fat), and sweetness (sugar). This is not a complicated gourmet cookbook to be admired on the bookshelf, but rather a "let's make really good food so we can feel and look really good" cookbook filled with recipes you will make on a regular basis.
A captivating look at modern Canadian cuisine--from coast to coast to coast--with one of Canada's superstar chefs With a foreword by Jamie Oliver Derek Dammann is one of Canada’s most extraordinary culinary artists. The creative genius behind DNA and Maison Publique restaurants in Montreal, Derek has grown steadily in stature and influence in Canadian cuisine. True North is a culinary coming-of-age story, of both a chef and a country. Thirty years ago Canada was a culinary backwater. Today it has one of the most dynamic and creative food scenes in the world. That change can be attributed to chefs like Dammann, and the producers, fishermen, farmers, butchers and foragers who supply them with the materials of their trade. Derek Dammann’s food can be described as regionally inspired, seasonally driven nose-to-tail cooking. But that is just the beginning. Taking inspiration from Italian, British and Quebecois traditions, he is fundamentally a “melting pot” Canadian chef who works with Canadian ingredients from coast to coast. The entire country is his larder. Thus the book is structured to reflect this approach, with over 100 recipes divided into chapters that are arranged not by season or dish but by region: Farm, Vineyard, Pacific, Atlantic, Tundra, Forest, Field, etc., with recipes focused on ingredients from those places. So in the Pacific chapter, we see recipes such as Smoked Oysters, Potted Crab, Crab and Carrageenan Mousse, Chinook on the Beach Haida Gwaii Style, and Smoked Salmon Belly. In the Field chapter we see Slow Roast Shoulder of Pig, Boudin Blanc with Sauerkraut and Ham Hock, and Lamb Brain Profiteroles with Tartar Sauce. And so on. Extraordinary food from an amazing chef celebrating a country’s culinary coming out. True North offers exceptional insight into real Canadian cuisine in a gorgeously illustrated package. This is in essence a book about the people and places that give this country its distinct flavour, and about the ingredients and ideas that inspire Derek Dammann to create such wonderful, definitively Canadian food.

The Ayurveda Vegan Kitchen offers people the opportunity to follow an Ayuvedic diet without the use animal products. Ayurveda is a holistic healing system developed in ancient India to increase an understanding of the human body, mind, and spirit. It organizes the elements of ether, air, fire, water, and earth into three body types, or doshas. Although each person is unique, one of these doshas will predominate their constitution and will need to be balanced on a regular basis. Dairy products are important foods in traditional Ayurveda; however, for every milk-based food that Ayurvedic healers revere, there is an equally effective whole-food, vegan alternative. Following the same nutritional principles as traditional Ayurveda, Talya created over 120 delicious recipes that provide healing flavors and harmony to the mind and spirit. Easy-to-follow symbols on each recipe page show how the unique chemistry of that recipe can be used to balance the body'’s constitution. Since a healthy digestive system is at the core of ayurvedic medicine, these recipes will keep you on track and in good health.
