I became a vegan earlier this year. I have read a cornucopia of books on diet and health, nutrition, veganism, vegetarianism, visited FB sites for vegans, animal rights activists/advocacy groups, etc. and found a LOT of mostly conflicting, even contradictory, reasoning and research, lots of inflammatory posts, lots of judgment and rhetoric and fear and misinformation - a glut of emotional flotsam and jetsam mixed in with a few sincere individuals who simply understand that what we eat has an effect on us, our planet, and everything that lives on it and are still a bit confused about how to eat healthfully. Ms Hever approaches this subject with a wealth of personal experience and skill. This book is packed in an easy-to-read format with research information, meal plans, everything. The recipes sound delicious, I finally have a meal plan I can follow as a newly diagnosed Type 2 Diabetic that fits in with my values/etchics. I plan to read her book, The Complete Idiot's Guide to Plant-Based Eating, now. I have gone to Dr. Richard Oppenlander's Inspire Awareness Now site, and it's wonderful - she writes about his 40 years of research and books about his studies of how what we eat effects us and our planet. His books are also available on Amazon.
Overall, great book. No pictures for those who feel they're a must-have with recipes. Pleasant anecdotes, personal approach, you feel you want her to coach you along the path, or at least meet her in person. I've read McDougall, Esselstyne, Ornish, Fuhrman, on and on, and Ms Hever's book finally is the treasure chest I've been hoping to open.
This book explains the history of the Mediterranean diet and neatly ties it into its modern day applications (including common myths that just won’t die). As a dietitian who already eats plant-based, I have to say I learned a lot from this book, not just facts but new ways of thinking about food and plant-based nutrition. As a foodie, I was excited about Hever’s recipes. Last night I made 3 of them. First, I tried the Savory Sprinkles (a simple but brilliant combination of sundried tomatoes, hemp seeds, nutritional yeast, and sesame seeds), which I stirred into my hummus at lunch today, and WOW it is terrific! I added a bit of sea salt and it’s perfect. I plan to sprinkle it on my roasted eggplant tonight. I also made the Sunrise Kale Chips, because I’ve been searching for a recipe that doesn’t require a dehydrator and that yields CRISPY kale – this is it! And the kale is delicious. Even my 4-year-old daughter loved it. Finally, I baked the carrot muffins, which are gluten free and oil free (I admit, I freely use wheat flour and oil in baking), and honestly are amazing. Both my kids loved them toasted and spread with almond butter. They will surely become a staple in my home as well as the go-to recipe for bake sales at my kids’ schools. Tonight I plan on trying the Ful Medames (I have only used canned favas in my previous attempts; this version, using dried beans, looks awesome) and the Chocolate Crispy Fruit Squares.
This book gets 5 stars for its evidence-based information, presented in a truly practical way, as well as a collection of creative and healthful recipes. Hever also provides excellent summaries of controversial issues like dietary fat and soy in the diet, and includes excellent sections on mindful eating and movement as part of the lifestyle.
