—Carolyn Scott-Hamilton, in VegNews
“[A]n invaluable reference for anyone who still doesn’t believe that the Standard American Diet (SAD) is in fact the cause for a majority of our personal, global and moral devastation. Highly recommended.”

I am returning this book because it isn't a BOOK, it's a *cookbook*. Yes, I realize it says right on the cover that it has 125 recipes, and yes, I did look at the preview. But I assumed this would be mostly BOOK plus recipes. What I got was no different than most other cookbooks I own. A cookbook with a little bit of extra information. The information was identical to the documentary, and the personal stories were scattered between the recipes.
I love Forks over Knives, but I'm choosing to return this because if you want a cookbook, why not pay a few extra bucks for the Forks over Knives cookbook that has 300 recipes? Makes more sense to me. But, I suppose this would be a good book to get someone who refuses to watch the documentary? Maybe.
At first I didn't understand the title, but once it was explained that using your fork to eat healthy foods is much better than going under the knife for surgery, it made sense. So many of my friends and co-workers eat a meat heavy diet, and yesterday we were told that one of them has to start immediate chemo after they found a very large cancerous tumor inside and outside his colon, and he is in his late 40s! In the book they talk about other parts of the world that eat mostly fruits and veggies (too poor for meat) and they have very low rates of cancer. If anyone ignores that warning, they are a fool.
P.S. I should mention - a serendipity is - I have lost 30 lbs - with nothing changed except doing WFPB - as outlined in Forsk Over Knives. I have a friend who is diabetic. on insulin, with blood sugar numbers in the 200+'s....her numbers have dropped to around 115 as a rule, and though she was weighing in at over 300 lbs, she has already lost 15 of them.. Her doctors are changing her meds, lowering the doses on them all....listen to the good news....go WFPB and enjoy !
We wanted the Netflix doc 'The Game Changer' and chose to get healthy for real.
As an ex Keto girl I needed to learn about this & how to proceed.
This is a good starter book. Easy to read & good recipes.
I still can't believe how much I'm loving being Vegan!!
