How Not to Die
New York Times Best Seller for the Third Week in a Row!!!

Michael Greger, MD never disappoints and his most recent book, How Not to Die, is no exception.

I have been an avid follower of Dr. Greger for many years.  I think he is by far, the most learned individual on the substantial and credible scientific evidence which continues to demonstrate the significant, positive impact that a low-fat, whole food, plant-based lifestyle can have on our health.

The first half of his book addresses the "why" of a low-fat, whole food, plant-based lifestyle.  The second half provides the "how", with a compiliation of how he's made it work in his own life and the life of his family.

I recommend this book over all others on the subject and urge you not only to buy and read it yourself, but buy copies for all of your loved ones.  It's that important!!!

I bought his ebook to read while I'm on the elliptical and StairMaster first thing in the morning, and the audio CDs, narrated by Dr. Greger himself, to listen to as I'm driving to and from work.

Here is the link for the book, ebook, and CDs:

Today, Dr. Greger also released his new, free phone app for both iPhones and Androids.  It will help to keep you on track in the new year by helping you to track your daily dozen.  Give it a try!


New Year's Day...Plant-Based!

New Year's traditions don't have to come to a screeching halt when you go plant-based.  Here is my family's favorite meal on the first day of the year: mashed potatoes, sauerkraut, and green beans.
We cook the potatoes with the skins on, as they are incredibly nutritious, then blend them with unsweetened almond milk, salt, and pepper.  My children like to top them with a little organic Earth Balance buttery spread, but I like mine plain.
I've adapted my Aunt Karen's recipe for sauerkraut:
This makes approximately 2 large servings.
27 ounces of sauerkraut
1/2 cup filtered water
1 small onion, chopped
1 Granny Smith apple, skinned and chopped (I eat the skins while I'm cooking!)
1/4 cup ketchup
1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
1/2 tablespoon caraway seeds
1 tablespoon organic Earth Balance buttery spread
Combine and simmer for two hours.
Then, I add steamed green beans and we're all set.
And don't forget my friends, Janet and Hub, who love their grilled hummus and sauerkraut sandwiches!  I make mine without grilling it with Earth Balance buttery spread.  Instead, I place them in a toaster oven for a lower fat option and they're still delicious!




Wishing all sentient beings peace and joy this holiday season!
