We give little thought to the connection between what we eat and our health and weight; instead, we overeat high-calorie, fat-laden, processed, and unnatural foods. The quick, sure way to reverse the results of such unhealthy choices is to eat nutrient-rich, calorie-sparse natural foods: vegetables, fruits, beans, and whole grains. Dr. Ohlsen explores the health benefits, food-enjoyment issues, psychological considerations, and earthly impact of a plant-based diet. She takes us on her own journey from overweight meat eater suffering many health challenges to slim, healthy person whose diet is entirely plant-based whole foods, and offers a variety of vegan recipes to boost our health and delight our taste buds. Her practical advice includes how to change our eating habits using Buddhist psychology and a master plan called the Eightfold Path to establish and support healthy decision-making. She interweaves nutrition, inspirational stories, and mindful eating to help us do better.
