Last week I was simply honored and trembling with excitement when I got an invitation to attend Dr. Neal Barnard’s book launch party in New York City. Held at Kathy Freston’s gorgeous mid-town home, the party featured delicious Gardein “chicken skewers” and organic wine from Frey Vineyards.
After talking with Neal and hearing his inspiring talk, I had him sign a copy of his new book, 21-Day Weight Loss Kickstart. The book is partially inspired by the Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine’s Vegan Kickstart program, in which my recipes have been featured.
Over the last few day’s I have been looking through the book, and am finding myself re-inspired by the information presented. Dr. Barnard provides easy to digest nutritional and medical advice that has been proven to boost metabolism, lower cholesterol, and help people lose weight all without counting calories.
The recipes are easy to prepare, and there are many handy lists of dairy-free and meat-alternative foods that make it easy for newbies to this idea of plant-based eating.
With out current healthcare crises of heart disease and type 2 Diabetes on the rise, this book couldn’t come at a better time.
Do yourself, and your loved ones a favor – get this book! It could save someone’s life.
