The Good Life is killing us. Chronic diseases have established a stronghold in our society representing 75% of our national health care costs. And the best modern medicine can do is to manage the symptoms of these modern killer diseases. But hope comes from Loma Linda, California, the capital of the American Blue Zone of long livers. Why do these people who represent not just a geographic Blue Zone but a cultural one, have only half the rates of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes, and excess weight, and why do they have lower risks for arthritis, colon and prostate cancer? Let this family- style cookbook reveal some of their secrets. Here you find delicious, inexpensive recipes that will contribute to better health and longer life. These are not recipes with outlandish ingredients. Instead, this book is offering families some of their favorite American foods but with a healthy twist. This book offers you something better.

About the Author:

Sarah Frain and Stephanie Howard are busy wives and mothers who never imagined themselves writing a plant-based cookbook. Both grew up in the Midwest, where meat and potatoes are the standard fare for just about every meal. But after learning about the health principles and diet that their new church, the Seventh-day Adventists advocated, they wanted something better for their families. A diet rich in whole grains and abundant in plant-based foods was something entirely new to them, but they decided to give it a try. The change was hard but rewarding in the health and good appetites of their active children. Now they want to share the family secrets they have learned from America s longest living culture so that all families can have something better.

Review:

You now have in your hands a practical and engaging guide to preparing the very best plant-based foods in your own kitchen. You will be able to enjoy favorites like Vegetable Pot Pie, Lasagna, and Veggie Fajitas, and also to learn some new tastes, along the way. You ll get all the tips and menu planning support you need to help your family make the switch to a healthier diet and stick to it! All this and more is here in Give them Something Better. --Neal Barnard, M.D. President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

Beautiful. Delicious. Nutritious. Fresh. That s what every meal should be, and can be with this wonderful new resource. --Vicki Griffin, M.S., Human Nutrition Director, Lifestyle Matters Health Intervention Series
