The Healthiest Diet on the Planet: Why the Foods You Love-Pizza, Pancakes, Potatoes, Pasta, and More-Are the Solution to Preventing Disease and Looking and Feeling Your Best
Carbohydrates have been getting a bad reputation among certain food circles, but they don’t deserve that kind of vilification. The truth is that most populations of humans throughout history have relied primarily on grains and starchy vegetables for the bulk of their nutrition and calories. While there is a very small subset of the population that can’t digest gluten properly, most people enjoy better health when their diet is primarily plants, including wheat and other grains; potatoes and other root veggies; legumes; and other, non-starchy fruits and veggies. And that’s exactly the kind of diet Dr. John McDougall promotes in The Healthiest Diet on the Planet. McDougall has been using evidence-based diets to help heal people from inflammation, diabetes, heart disease, and excess weight for decades. His book describes the science behind why it works, offers a clear-cut plan for healthy eating, and provides plenty of recipes (all of which are completely plant-based) to get readers started. With recipes like Almond French Toast, Curried Yam Stew, Layered Tex-Mex Lasagna, and Chocolate Fruit Fondue, everyone is sure to find something that sounds tasty while improving their health along the way!
