The China Study, with 850,000 copies sold, has been hailed as one of the most important health and nutrition books ever published. It revealed that the traditional Western diet has led to our modern health crisis and the widespread growth of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Based on the most comprehensive nutrition study ever conducted, the book reveals that a plant-based diet leads to optimal health with the power to halt or reverse many diseases.

The China Study Cookbooktakes these scientific findings and puts them to action. Written by LeAnne Campbell, daughter ofThe China Studyauthor T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and mother of two hungry teenagers,The China Study Cookbookfeatures delicious, easily prepared plant-based recipes with no added fat and minimal sugar and salt that promote optimal health.

From herBreakfast Home-Fry HashandFabulous Sweet Potato EnchiladastoNo-Bake Peanut Butter BarsandCheese(less) Cake, all of LeAnne’s recipes follow three important principles:

1. Optimal nutrition is based on eating food rather than nutrient supplements
2. The closer that foods are to their native states#151;prepared with minimal cooking, salting, and processing#151;the greater the long-term health benefits of eating them
3. It is best to choose locally and organically grown produce whenever possible

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cookbook This is a good vegan cookbook - the recipe for broccoli salad has become a summertime staple in my house. Easy to follow recipes - with easy to source ingredients - often using pantry staples.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great vegan cookbook! I bought this book to help me find ideas of plant-based meals to make as I transitioned to a plant-based lifestyle. The meals are simple and quick and there is good variety. I am a fairly picky eater so many of the savory meals did not appeal to me, but the breakfast and baking recipes are excellent. I have tried several already and will be trying more soon! The information section at the beginning of the book is also helpful.
