The Forks Over Knives Plan: How to Transition to the Life-Saving, Whole-Food, Plant-Based Diet by Alona Pulde, Matt Lederman, Marah Stets
This book explains how to implement a plant based whole foods diet that was introduced in the documentary "Forks Over Knives". The first part of the book explains why a plant based whole foods diet is healthy and necessary. The "plan" is rather simple and that part of the book tells you to begin by eating according to this diet for breakfast the first week adding in lunch the second week and dinner the third week. There are also interesting nutritional facts in the plan part of the book. The last part of the book is the recipes and they look like good recipes. I like them, but, disregarding the health rules of the book, I have found that many of them are even better when made with chicken broth or with some added feta cheese, olive oil, or butter. I received this book free to review from Netgalley.
