Product Description

Review

“A great resource for folks toying with the idea of transitioning to vegetarianism.”
—Carolyn Scott-Hamilton, in VegNews

“[A]n invaluable reference for anyone who still doesn’t believe that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is in fact the cause for a majority of our personal, global and moral devastation. Highly recommended.”
This Dish is Veg

The Companion & Cookbook provide such an array of wonderful plant based recipes which are easy to follow & with ingredients that are not difficult to find. Reading the stories & testimonies of people who have had their lives change through a plant based diet confirms my belief in how I want to live my life....in health!! A great gift for someone who wants to change how & what they eat and need a nudge in the right direction!!
Thank-you Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn & Dr. Colin Campbell:)

Take charge of your nutrition - this book and the documentary that it compliments is a wake up call to raise awareness of what you need to know about what you are eating. The jury may be out on effects of our typical north american diet - a look at some hard evidence about plant based diet.

I have read several books on this subject and still found this book well worthwhile. I highly recommend it. If you are new to a plant-based diet this is the book to read. Also has lots of good recipes.

I have read a lot about nutrition and healthy diets. I picked up this book because there is a history of heart attack and stroke in my family. I found the reading easy and extremely informative. If you are concerned about the health of your heart you need to pick up this book. The guidelines set forth may seem challenging at first but in my opinion are doable with a little effort and some planning.

I absolutely LOVE this book. I bought it after I watched the documentary two or three times, and seriously this documentary, book and the Forks Over Knives cookbook all changed my life completely.

I lost weight, my acid reflux and sinus issues disappeared completely, I lost weight, gained a ton of energy, don't have to sleep as much anymore, my acne went away, even my hair is shinier (seriously! haha).

I can't explain to everyone how much this docu and books have helped me turn my life around. I never imagine ever being able to feel so good on a daily basis as I feel now eating a whole foods, plant-based (and organic) diet. I eat as much food as I want, and still lost weight, I never count calories or anything crazy like that - who needs to when you feed your body actual FOOD (and not processed trash and processed animal products!).

It's so crazy, but yet so simple, the concept of healing your body through what you eat. But it actually works. I literally haven't been sick in almost a year now, and I used to get sick ALL the time. I haven't even had so much as a cold! When I start to feel a sore throat coming on, I make an extra smoothie for myself, eating as much raw as possible, and it's literally worked every time. Eating as much raw as possible is so important, but I can't believe how much stronger my immune system is now that I eat healthy, REAL food and no longer eat processed garbage and animal products. Yuck! I have more variety in my meals every day than I ever did when eating junky, processed food and animal products, and the food tastes sooo much better than a burger and fries or boring meat and potato dish! I never thought I'd hear myself say those words, but it's true! Haha.
