VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00 to Lose Weight and Restore Your Health . . . for Good
I don't normally read cookbooks all the way through, but I certainly did for this one. Mark Bittman's no-nonsense easy guide for changing your health and your lifestyle is thought provoking and not nearly so hard to put into practice as most "fad-diets" are. Basically, you follow a strict vegan diet for breakfast and lunch and for dinner you can be flexitarian and have dairy, grains, or meat. The theory being animal products in grain are not nearly as good for your health as fruits and veggie so they need to be eaten sparsely and in moderation. A little bit can be a good thing, but the crux of everyone's diet should be fruits and veggies. Besides a basic outline of the lifestyle change (not diet!), there is a guide on storing, cooking, and buying fruits, veggies, nuts, condiments, etc. Also included in the book are dozens of intriguing recipes. I haven't had time to try any yet but they certainly look yummy. Some are even simple enough for a novice like me to make!
Recommended for someone interested in changing their eating lifestyle or wanting to try out a vegan diet.
