Plant-Based Resources

"Whole," T.Coline Campbell

What happens when you eat an apple? The answer is much more complex than you can imagine.  Dr. Campbell helps debunk the debate over whether eating plant-based is the best lifestyle.  He also helps to break down the research that has been done at a level that anyone can understand. (get the book)

"Forks over Knives" (also available on Netflix)
This movie evaluates and attributes all of our health problems to our diet and examines evidence that by removing all animal products from our diet we can control if not reverse disease.  (go to site)

"Eat to Live," Joel Fuhrman, MD
This is the book that peaked my interest in a plant-based lifestyle.  It's a great book to get started with and to help you understand the benefits of eating more plants.  It's easy to read, easy to find and also has a 6-week jump start program with recipes. (get book)

Rip Esselstyn's, "The Engine 2 Diet"
Rip is the son of Dr. Esselstyn, the second contributor of the China study.  He helps "the manly" ones connect with a plant-based lifestyle.  He and his fire-fighting friends help men and women realize the benefits and the athletic support that plant-based followers receive. (get book)

The China Study
This is the largest nutritional study that has ever been done on a single population.  This book shares findings related to plant-based lifestyles vs. traditional western diets and their risk of cancer and heart disease. (go to site)

"The Kind Life," Alicia Sylverstone
This book was the second book that I read when I decided to try to embrace a plant-based diet.  What I like most about this book is she has simliar beliefs as I do that people need to do their best.  Obviously 100% would be best, however 50% plant-based is better than 10%. (get book)
