Get Healthy, Go Vegan with Dr. Barnard's Two New Cookbooks

The Get Healthy, Go Vegan cookbookTwo new PCRM cookbooks encourage everyone from beginners to chefs to prepare more plant-based meals. From quick and delicious Fire-Roasted Tomato Black Bean Chili to exotic Chilled Canary Melon and Green Zebra Tomato Soup with Tofu Cardamom Cream, recipes in The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook and The Best in the World III demonstrate that a vegan diet is easy and delicious.

Recipes in The Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook: 125 Easy and Delicious Recipes to Jump-Start Weight Loss and Help You Feel Great are based on Dr. Neal Barnard's landmark two-year study, which shows that a vegan diet effectively controls type 2 diabetes. In fact, it’s also beneficial for weight loss, the reversal of heart disease, and the improvement of many other conditions.

“For most people, this is an eye-opening experience,” says Dr. Barnard. “They start to lose unwanted pounds, their energy improves, and their digestion gets better. If they have diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, these problems begin to improve, too. Headaches and joint pains start to melt away.”

Dr. Barnard and nutritionist Robyn Webb offer easy, delicious meals to improve your health. The all-occasion dishes use familiar ingredients and require minimal effort, are free of animal products, low in fat, and contain a low-to-moderate glycemic index.

The Best in the World III: Healthful Recipes from Exclusive and Out-of-the-Way Restaurants, edited by Dr. Barnard, features delicious and unique recipes from restaurants across the globe. Join monks in a temple courtyard in the Far East, passengers on a French luxury yacht, or even a rock star in Akron, Ohio, for an unforgettable culinary adventure. Often exotic and always flavorful, these plant-based recipes are designed to be within the abilities of any amateur chef.

Dr. Barnard will also be featured on the big and small screens this month. Starting tomorrow, June 3, he will follow up the highly successful live appearances he made on Public Broadcasting Service stations across the country in March. In the following cities, he will discuss his 60-minute PBS program, titled Tackling Diabetes with Dr. Neal Barnard. Check local listings for times and more details.

Dr. Barnard also makes an appearance in the new film Forks over Knives, which examines the link between “diseases of affluence” and a diet high in animal products. The film traces the personal journeys of pioneering researchers of plant-based diets T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., and Caldwell Esselstyn, M.D. On Wednesday, June 23, Washington, D.C.-area residents will join Dr. Barnard for a Q-and-A following the D.C. premiere of the film.
