Description

Are you an environmentalist-championing wise water usage, clean oceans, and a reduction in greenhouse gases? Are you interested in permanent weight loss, disease prevention, and optimal nutrition? This book demonstrates how a plant-based diet directly addresses all these concerns. Dr. Patricia Tallman explains why the most effective action you can take to mitigate climate change, water pollution, rainforest destruction, and water shortages also will enable you to combat diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and cancer. Several chapters are devoted to illustrating the profound environmental savings that would result from leaving meat and dairy off your menu. For instance, simply replacing beef in a Sloppy Joes recipe with a plant-based protein generates the following savings per serving: 1,670 liters (441 US gal) of water; 4.4 kg (9.7 pounds) of manure; and enough greenhouse gas to drive 10.7 km (6.7 miles)! Equally astonishing, a plant-based version of this traditional dish contains 25 percent fewer calories and 50 percent less total fat, eliminates 8 grams of saturated fat and all 80 mg of cholesterol, and yet provides virtually the same amount of protein and iron. By choosing tasty, nutritious recipes like those found in these pages, you can enhance your health and reduce your risk of many diseases, while protecting our threatened environment in a multitude of ways.
