Review by Kimaoverstreet
I have eaten a whole foods plant based diet for two years with spectacular results and have several other cookbooks of this type. This is tied with The Happy Herbivore as my favorite. I have prepared ten China Study recipes thus far and loved them all. The food is flavorful, not bland like with some healthy cookbooks I've tried. My husband, who is an omnivore, enjoyed them as well. Most can be prepared with minimal effort from inexpensive ingredients found in a regular grocery store. The book itself is a nice size with photos for almost every recipe. A convenient index makes recipes easy to find by name or ingredient. I am purchasing a second copy to give as a gift - highly recommended!
