Harness the power of whole-plant foods to lead a long and vibrant lifea€”whether youa€™re vegan, vegetarian or omnivorous. Eat more whole plants. This simple recommendation is at the heart of a building consensus: The healthiest diet is a plant-based diet. Plants have spent millions of years evolving their defenses against disease. Now, studies indicate that by eating whole, minimally processed plant foods, humans too can gain protectiona€”against everyday illness, diabetes, obesity, depression, mental decline, heart disease, and even cancer. In The Plant-Powered Diet, registered dietitian Sharon Palmer marshals the most up-to-date findings in nutrition to explain both why you should fill more of your plate with whole-plant foods and how to do so, whether youa€™re a longtime vegan or a committed omnivore. Here is: a€c Essential information on the healthiest plant foodsa€”whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and even herbs, spices, chocolate, coffee, tea, and wine a€c Advice for navigating the supermarket, kitchen, restaurant menus, on-the-go meals, exercise, and more a€c A 14-day meal plan, plus daily action alerts to get you started a€c And 75 original plant-based recipes for every meala€”all with complete nutritional data. The Plant-Powered Diet is not a diet youa€™ll go a€œona€ today and a€œoffa€ tomorrow. It is a simple, satisfying, and thoroughly delicious way of eating that can not only last your lifetimea€”but lengthen it.W.
