Dr. Campbell is the Jacob Gould Schurman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry at Cornell University.

The China Study was the culmination of a 20-year partnership of Cornell University, Oxford University and the Chinese Academy of Preventive Medicine.

I made the Creamy Broccoli and Red Pepper Macaroni as part of dinner the other night (recipe by Heather Crosby) - this received rave reviews and is great served warm or cold as a left over the next day. This would be great for a picnic or potluck. You would never know this is oil free!
If you already own cookbooks by some of the authors listed above you may notice some repeats, but don't shy away. There are many new things to try. I've bookmarked the blueberry pie chia parfait, zucchini and summer squash muffins (gluten free), the festive kale salad, and peppermint chocolate chunk ice cream.
I definitely recommend this book.
Update: I've also, made the
Almond cardamom cream chia pudding with fresh strawberries and hemp seeds - good but I like some other chia puddings more. It seemed a little too thick for my liking and will be easy to adjust next time. But the hemp seeds are brilliant!Read more ›
Only one drawback, they do NOT include caloric and other nutritional values for each recipe. Page 285 gives their reason for not including them:
"To be consistent with the message in 'The China Study' and especially its sequel, 'Whole', nutrient compositions are not presented with the recipes. Nutrient contents in different samples of the same food often are highly variable, leading consumers to be concerned with trivial and meaningless differences instead of the far more important health characteristics of food variety and wholesomeness."
I personally prefer to know the nutritional and caloric content of what I eat, but I won't sweat the small things. It's all complete, whole, plant-based foods that satisfy my taste buds and feed my body everything it needs.
Definitely worth the purchase.
I like hearty recipes that are not too complicated and this pretty much seems to fit the bill. I have all of the Happy Herbivore cookbooks, so I don't need those recipes, but I am so glad they are included; it makes me go back to try recipes I haven't gotten to yet. I just made the aloo gobi & it was so good! There also are recipes from Chef AJ & Dreena Burton that I would like to try.
If you do not have the other cookbooks by these authors, you should consider buying this book. My only complaint is that nutritional breakdowns are not included. That is one thing that I love about the Happy Herbivore cookbooks that is lacking in the China Study cookbooks.
The Index includes: Breads & Muffins; Breakfast; Salads; Soups & Chillis; Burgers, Sandwiches, And Tacos; Entrees; Side Dishes; And Desserts.
Some of the delicious Desserts include: Mint Chocolate Mousse Torte; Peanut Butter Fudge Truffles; And Easy Breezy Sunday Cobbler. We are anxious to make the Coconut Pillows. We made the Creamy Fettuccini, which is simple to make, and very tasty. I have lemons & limes at home, so we made the Lemon-Lime Green Smoothie, which was delicious, and filling. Our Next Selections will be the Creamy Broccoli Soup, The Nacho "Cheese" Sauce which my daughter selected, and the Baked Onion Rings. We will leave updates with New recipes we try. Most of the recipes are easy-to-prepare with simple preparation. A Great addition to my cookbook collection at a reasonable price. Highly recommended for all those seeking a healthy diet on a friendly budget. Highly recommended.

Recipes look good, but the lack of nutritional data makes it tough to gauge how much of what (e.g. sugar, fiber) you are consuming. (Not everyone can afford to eat all they want.)Published 14 days ago by Tam Le
