Review


The China Study Cookbook combines the best and healthiest practices of the plant-based movement with no-oil dishes you and your family will love.”
Lindsay S. Nixon, author of the bestselling Happy Herbivore cookbook series

About the Author

LeAnne Campbell, PhD, lives in Durham, North Carolina. She has been preparing meals based on a whole-food, plant-based diet for almost 20 years. Campbell has raised two sons—Steven and Nelson, now 18 and 17—on this diet. As a working mother, she has found ways to prepare quick and easy meals without using animal products or adding fat.

For more than 40 years, T. Colin Campbell, PhD, has been at the forefront of nutrition research. His legacy, the China Study, is the most comprehensive study of health and nutrition ever conducted. Dr. Campbell is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University. He has received more than 70 grant years of peer-reviewed research funding and authored more than 300 research papers. The China Study was the culmination of a 20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine.

Leanne Campbell, daughter of 'The China Study' author, delivers an intriguing cookbook, based on the the findings and conclusions of 'The China Study.' There is a huge selection of plant-based recipes that are offered, without added fat, and minimal sugar and salt. The results of research in 'The China study' concluded that a plant-based diet results in better health as it can aid in reducing obesity, and reversing diseases such as diabetes, and heart disease. The findings also conclude that this diet can halt diseases such as cancer. The recipes provided are easy-to-prepare, tasty, and highlight the importance of avoiding additional fat. The recipes include breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and more. These quick and easy meals and snacks include helpful tips on substitutions, based on the author's principals and advice for better nutrition, and less weight gain. These favorite recipes from the plant-based movement are specifically prepared as no-oil dishes as another aid in improving health. My daughter's first choice as a peanut butter lover is the no-bake Peanut Butter Bars, and mine is the Home-Fry Hash as breakfast is my favorite meal. Since we both love sweet potatoes, the Sweet Potato Enchiladas is next on the agenda as we keep track of our weight, along with exercise. Each week, we will experiment with a new recipe, and I will give our opinion of the outcome. There is something for everyone in this huge selection of recipes. In addition, I have many friends who are diabetics, interested in sharing these recipes. An update of recipes we made this week: GREEK SALAD WITH NUTS (I used walnuts instead of pine-nuts, very tasty. The PUMPKIN PANCAKES were delicious, and the BLUEBERRY COFFEE CAKE was a big hit. Next on the agenda will be BANANA CRUMB MUFFINS and FAVORITE FRENCH TOAST.Read more ›

I have a cabinet full of low-fat, plant-based, whole foods cookbooks and I know this one will be the most used of all of them.

I cannot state emphatically enough how amazing it is that this book brings to the reader traditional comfort food in an EASY and healthy package. You will find many of your old favorites reborn into healthy dishes. I am amazed at how Ms. Campbell was able to accomplish this with such simplicity of both ingredients and preparation.

This book is beautifully presented. It is professionally designed and laid out with professional color photographs for nearly every dish. I'm not sure what it is that makes it easier to select a recipe if there's a great picture, but the author and publisher were smart enough to realize this and I appreciate that. Everything looks delicious, and the recipes are all so simple and reasonable to make, but at the same time come out so good. Healthy has never been so easy or so tasty.

The book begins with a short introduction that manages to stuff a lot of good information into a small space without rehashing everything else done by all of the other cookbooks for this audience. It gives sound advice for those transitioning to a plant-based diet.

The book is then divided into Breads & Muffins, Breakfast Dishes, Appetizers & Salads, Soups, Sandwiches, Entrees,Side Dishes, and Desserts. Appendices include metric conversions and an index.

New family favorites from this book include Fiesta Corn Bread, Apple Turnovers, Lemon Tahini Quinoa Salad, Sesame Noodle Salad, Tomato Tortilla Soup, Thai Wraps, Asparagus Crepes, Seasoned Mushroom Soup, Macaroni Squash, Moroccan Eggplant. The Coconut Mango Pudding is to die for!

No added oil in the recipes.

As a fan of T. Colin Campbell, I was anxious to see what his daughter's book contained. Here are a few pros and cons about it.

Pros:
If you are a young parent who wants to introduce children to plant-based diet, this is a good primer. It's simple and doesn't take a lot of time to read. Busy parents often don't have time to sit and read a dense instructional cookbook.
There are a lot of pasta, rice and grain recipes for families that are used to American-style stews and casseroles.
The book has prep and cooking times.

Cons:
I found the photos terribly unappetizing. They are so close up they make many recipes look mushy and unappealing. It's hard to tell what you are looking at in some of them. I haven't been tempted by any of them and I feel they distract from the book. Perhaps because the book is light on recipes they were trying to fill pages, but they should have showed the food from a farther distance.
I kept wondering what the author's Ph.D. is in. There is no information on whether she has a degree in nutrition or whether she is self-taught and her book is based on her own recipes, which it seems to be. However, her father wrote the introduction, and I would trust he approves of the nutritional value of the recipes.
All in all, I wouldn't say this is my favorite of all the newer vegan/vegetarian cookbooks out there, but it has a place in the efforts of doctors such as T. Colin Campbell to introduce plant-based diets to those interested in their health and well-being.
As a seasoned vegetarian and convert to veganism, I much prefer another recent purchase of mine -- "Wild About Greens", by Nava Atlas. Atlas has been a favorite of ours for about 30 years, since her 1984 "Vegetariana" which helped us transition to vegetarianism in the early days of vegetarian cookbooks. Her newest book promotes greens, with a section highlighting each green and recipes for it.
