The How Not to Die Cookbook ePUB é The How PDF/EPUB

The How Not to Die Cookbook One of the best cookbooks I've read so far I'm a bit of a Dr Greger fangirl but the recipes in this one are solid good recipes that are easy to follow The book begins with a summary of the main points discussed in How Not To Die After that the Daily Dozen is explained and then the recipes beginMy favourite recipes are the desserts and smoothies After the recipes there's a small summary on what boxes the recipe ticks on the daily dozen checklist Sounds complicated but it's not I use the Daily Dozen app which is free and has no ads At the end of the book there's a 14 day menu plan and a shopping list In all this is a very helpful cookbook for people who want to eat healthier but don't really know where to start Borrowed from library need to purchase Such convincing info to make necessary dietary changes My husband and I were huge fans of Dr Greger's book so I had to pre order his accompanying cookbook We have made about 10 recipes from it and they have all been AWESOME I think my favorite recipe so far has been the Curried Chickpea Wraps We also enjoyed the Black Bean Burgers Lentil Shephard's Pie Sweet Potato Hash and Moroccan Lentil SoupThe recipes are simple and delicious and each one features a full page photo so you know how the dish should look when you're done I also like that Dr Greger included recipes for kitchen staples like date paste savory spice blend etc and his tip for lemon and lime juice has been a game changer This was one of our top used cookbooks of 2017 I was fascinated by How Not To Die but I found this companion cookbook a little disappointing Many of the recipes looked kind of dull and there were a fair number of recipes that I think of as faking food foods that are pretending to be something else that has meat in it eg vegan Sloppy Joes vegan burgers vegan bolognese etc I tend to prefer vegan recipes that don't try to be something that they're not but instead embrace the possibilities of the actual food that's being cooked I guess I'll keep looking for that cookbook 25 Plant based vegan recipes Nice layout and photos but to be honest some of these recipes I'd rather die than eat Unless someone can make them for me The cookbook companion to How Not to Die is less useful than the book itself; there are many better recipes out there that adhere well enough to a plant based whole foods oil free diet to be very healthful Forks Over Knives and Dr John McDougall provide many excellent recipes for free on their websiteGreger limits himself to only his Green Light foods which is an admirable goal but doesn't jive with the point he makes in How Not to Die about making Green Light foods palatable with Yellow Light ones Bluntly put a lot of these recipes don't look palatable even to me and my palate is already adjusted to whole grains and bitter vegetables I can't imagine springing them on the person with whom I share my life Many use essentially the same spice blend it's intended to replace salt Others like the uinoa Tabouli and Lemony Hummus barely deviate from traditional recipes available everywhereOn top of that many recipes reuire a high speed blender or a heavy duty food processor I love the idea of making the date truffle recipe in this book or one of the myriad others like it floating around the internet but I'm not buying a food processor or burning out my dependable Oster blenderThat said there are some really good looking recipes in here I'll try his Ranch Dressing; Three Seed Crackers; the Spinach Dip; the Pumpkin Seed Dip; the Curried Cauliflower Soup; the Kale Salad with Avocado Goddess Dressing; the Super Caesar Salad; the Black Bean Burgers; the Cauliflower Steaks with Chermouli Sauce or at least the sauce; the Louisiana Style Soy Curls; and some of the smoothies But I'm already certain I'll modify these recipes to include salt; Greger is adamant in How Not to Die that an ideal diet doesn't include added salt but my genetically low blood pressure on a vegan diet is already at the level he suggests are seen in salt free populations Interestingly this speaks to one of the uestions I have about Greger's books do his rigid rules run the risk of railroading concerns about the specific nutritional needs of individuals?
