Healthy Vegan

A Listmania! list by Ellen Jaffe Jones (Anna Maria Island, FL)
The list author says: "As Dr. Neal Barnard says in the foreword to my book, I've read most nutrition books to try to escape a family history that gave my mom, aunt and both sisters breast cancer, and much more.

These healthy vegan books/recipes have saved my life and many others in cooking classes I've taught. Not a guarantee for everyone, but one of my multiple myeloma students lost 120 pounds in 8 months and improved cancer markers. In cultures of the world where they eat the ways outlined in these books, Western diseases are non-existent. Did my 1st marathon last year and continue to place in 5K races for my age group. Protein, calcium and other nutrients are plentiful.

Wanted to add more books, but Amazon only gave the choices I included here. Ruth Heidrich, Colleen Patrick-Goudreau, Rory Freedman, Kathy Freeston, Robert Cheeke, Brendan Brazier are also awesome authors! Forgive if I've left anyone out, but that's all for now!"
