I won this book through the Goodreads First Reads program. Healthy Heart Healthy Planet keeps an upbeat, positive outlook as it guides its readers in choosing plant-based dishes for the good of the Earth and their own arteries! Most of the recipes are simple and don't use a lot of unfamiliar ingredients that may confuse those new to this way of eating. I do have a bit of concern about the frequent use of agave nectar, which some health conscious people are avoiding because it contains even more fructose than HFCS. A different natural sweetener, such as maple syrup or stevia, could be used instead. In addition, I spotted another recipe calling for Worcestershire sauce, which traditionally contains anchovies. The recipe only notes that this is unsuitable for vegans, but in fact, it is neither vegetarian nor vegan. I didn't catch any more concerns of this nature. I have already made one recipe; a toasted eggplant sandwich, and it was simple and easily as delicious as veggie sandwiches I've ordered in mid-level restaurants in my area. It's also much cheaper to make on my own!The one thing that could have improved this book were color photos of the recipes. Who doesn't love looking at photos of delicious food? However, I realize this would have significantly added to the cost of production.
After giving about a half a dozen recipes in Healthy Heart, Healthy Planet: Delicious Plant Based Recipes & Tips to Reduce Heart Disease, Lose Weight & Preserve the Environment we are looking forward to giving more recipes a try. The tips to change eating habits are helpful and easy to follow. The book is organized by breakfast, lunch and dinner with a section for snacks too. I found this one of the best books for giving practical ideas to change eating habits and lifestyle to become healthier.My thanks to Cathi & Rajiv Misquitta, authors and Goodreads First Reads Giveaway for my copy of Healthy Heart, Healthy Planet: Delicious Plant Based Recipes & Tips to Reduce Heart Disease, Lose Weight & Preserve the Environment that I won in the Giveaway.
This book is great! The recipes are definitely ones I'm excited to try, and the explanation and understanding of health benefits in coordination with these recipes and lifestyle changes are clear and helpful. I think it's really important for us to take care of ourselves and of our planet, and this book takes massive strides to direct us to the right path. These recipes look so delicious. With half of my family vegetarians, I can tell they'd enjoy this book as well!I got this book for free from Good Reads first reads!
