Advance Praise for The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook
"In my lifetime, I've understood diet played a big role in the quality of my life, so I ate what I considered to be good for me. From childhood, the litany of ‘eat your vegetables’ was drummed into me, sometimes literally. Naturally, me being Southern, there was always meat served with those veggies, and most times it was used to flavor them. 64 years later, I meet the Esselstyns, and they say ‘eat your vegetables, but eat them raw or cooked with no oil!’ WHAT?! But, I tried it. It's truly amazing what the things I already liked really tasted like. Even more amazing: the number of plant-based creations that are possible. I won't go into the gigantic health benefits that came my way as a result of my decision to go plant-based, but I will say that 30 lost pounds and an infinite number of compliments later, I'm more than happy. I hope you'll treat yourself to one of these recipes and just open that door. I guarantee you won't close it!"
—Samuel L. Jackson
"This is a great cookbook for treating and reversing heart disease as well as a wide variety of other ailments and diseases. So hear the whisper of your heart and do it a favor. Try these recipes and see for yourself what a fantastic difference they can make for your health. Dr. Esselstyn’s amazing accomplishments are backed up by Ann and Jane’s health enriching recipes."
—T. Colin Campbell, author of The China Study, and Karen Campbell, Director of the Center for Nutrition Studies
Praise for Caldwell Esselstyn's Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease
“Proves that changes in diet (and that alone) cause radical changes in the age and disease of your arteries.”
—Michael Roizen, M.D., coauthor of You: On a Diet
“Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has directed pioneering research demonstrating that the progression of even severe coronary heart disease can often be reversed by making comprehensive changes in diet and lifestyle.”
—Dean Ornish, M.D., founder, President, and Director, Preventive Medicine Research Institute, and author of Dr. Dean Ornish’s Program for Reversing Heart Disease
“A hard-nosed scientist shows us his secrets for successfully cleaning the rusting arteries of so many patients—and it doesn’t even hurt.”
—Mehmet Oz, M.D., coauthor of You: The Owner’s Manual
“Dr. Esselstyn has always been ahead of his time. His focus on the healing powers of proper nutrition on diseased coronary arteries has now proven right, raising another unthinkable notion—that heart patients can cure themselves.”
—Bernadine Healy, M.D., former Director, National Institutes of Health
“This powerful program will make you virtually heart-attack-proof. On the basis of decades of research, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn has shown not only how to prevent heart disease but also how to reverse it—even for people who have been affected for many years. I strongly recommend this important book.”
—Neal D. Barnard, M.D., founder and President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, and author of Breaking the Food Seduction
“Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease provides a practical approach for people to regain their lost health. Considering the worldwide prevalence of coronary artery disease, this book should become the bestseller of all time.”
—John A. McDougall, M.D., author of The McDougall Program
“Dr. Esselstyn’s eminently successful arrest-and-reversal therapy for heart disease through patient education and empowerment as the treatment of choice will send shock waves through a mercenary medical system that focuses largely on pills and procedures.”
—Hans Diehl, founder and Director, Coronary Health Improvement Project
“Dr. Esselstyn’s solution in Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease is as profound as Newton’s discovery of gravity. Half of all Americans dying today could have changed their date with the undertaker by following Dr. Esselstyn’s plan.”
—Howard F. Lyman, coauthor of No More Bull! and Mad Cowboy
“If you have heart disease, this book should be essential reading. It could save your life.”
—Michael F. Jacobson, Executive Director, Center for Science in the Public Interest

I love the fact that I don't need some exotic spice or ingredient that is next to impossible to find as is the case with some plant-based cookbooks. I appreciate the relative simplicity of the ingredients that go into each recipe and the ease with which I can put the entire dish together and it tastes so delicious!
With many of the vegan or natural cookbooks going heavy on the "healthy oils" theme, it is so wonderful to have this cookbook available for those of us who have health conditions that do not permit us to use much, if any oil in our cooking. Finding plant-based recipes with no fat or oil or nuts is NOT easy, especially ones that do not taste like cardboard.
I highly recommend this book for anyone looking to cook whole-food, plant based dishes without fat and oil, salt and sugar whether they just want to eat better or have a health condition. You'll know it was lovingly and carefully put together when you try the recipes. Well worth the price!
I've always been a picker when it comes to meat, I don't like fat or gristle so it wasn't a big stretch to switch to a plant based diet after watching Forks Over Knives. Between this and the two Rip Esselstyn books I have a lot of variety and the recipes are very easy. The ease of preparation, cooking and clean up, as well as no calorie counting, really draw me to this lifestyle. I don't enjoy cooking when it takes over an hour to prepare a meal for one or two people (and the dishes are easy to clean because there is no fat!).
But, if you're a salt, sugar and fat addict and want to believe you need lots of butter or coconut oil to be healthy, steer clear. And good luck to you....
I saw Dr. Esselstyn and his charming wife Ann in person a couple of years ago. These folks are the real deal. The research is real. The patients are still alive, as are some of mine. Pills and surgery just bypass the problem, but the right foods will do the job!
