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.

Also removed was a dangerous drug know as Amiodarone for atrial fibrillation; a condition my wife no longer has. It is amazing that we can be cured just by following the recommendations of the China Study and this marvelous cookbook. for more look for; "The China Study Quick & Easy Cookbook: Cook Once, Eat All Week with Whole Food, Plant-Based Recipes" Written by Del Stoufe and edited by LeAnne Campbell (this cookbook's author.) Take back control of your health. Eating a WFPB diet will do wonders for you.
I really love that there are no added oils in these recipes. From cooking them I've learned I can successfully omit all the oils from other recipes or make substitutions without losing anything but unwanted fat. I learned from this cookbook that ground flax seeds and water make an excellent egg substitute. I even used it to coat and batter tofu fishsticks from a recipe in The Vegan Lunchbox. I love that these recipes use minimal amounts of sweeteners but they're still delicious. I personally think every recipe in the book is top notch and I would eat them, as I've made a lot of them. However I will only cook foods that win in our family by a majority vote. Here are the recipes that are kid tested and family approved. Pecan Ball Subs (pg 150) is the top pick. Other winners are: Favorite French Toast (add 1/2 cup whole grain flour to the batter to make a fancy battered French toast), Fruit Crepes (or creeps as my kids call them), pumpkin pancakes, Panana Cakes (big hit), scrambled Tofu, Fiesta Cornbread, No-bake Peanut Butter Bars (my 6 yr old cried when they were all gone and begged everyday for more). Now these other recipes are not a big hit with the kids, but I make them because the adults like them so well: Garlic Greenbeans and Mushrooms (fancy and delicious), Thai Wraps (I could eat them everyday) Pumpkin Gnocchi with Italian Vegetable Sauce (my husband said it's the bomb). This recipe book has been the standard by which I judge, choose, or modify other recipes. Other helpful books I recommend: Eat To Live, The Starch Solution, Disease-proof Your Child, Engine 2 Diet, My Beef With Meat, Fart Free Vegan, The China Study, any book by Dr Neal Barnard ( I loved Breaking The Food Seduction and The 21 Day Kickstart Program).
Without trying to lose weight per se, I've lost 15 lbs, my husband 13 lbs, 18 yr old son 10 lbs, 17 yr old daughter 5 lbs, Mother-in-law 12 lbs.
Top international reviews
The book offers over 120 recipes which are broken down into the following chapters:
Breads & Muffins
Appetizers & Salads
The recipes are simple to make and are delicious. I will admit that some of the attempts I made were a bit off, as I couldn't find an ingredient and the substitution I used didn't quite work out.
Just to note, for those in Ireland and/or UK, the book is written with US measurements and US vocab. Also, it lists some ingredients which I assume are more readily available in the US. However, as long as you are willing to take a little time beforehand to convert the measurements and find the right ingredients, you are in for a treat.
searching good health and long life. Brilliant! Explains why so many get ill.
Absolute best on the market.
