OWN YOUR HEALTH
How to Live Long & Avoid Chronic Illness
In down-to-earth language with a hearty helping of humor, Glen Merzer uses personal experience, real-life stories, and case studies to illustrate what science has repeatedly confirmed: plant-based diets prevent chronic disease. With clarity and humor, he presents a convincing case for how a plant-based diet can help us take charge of our health and avoid doctors, hospitals, and medications. From the overall lack of nutritional knowledge among western health-care providers to the impact of animal farming on climate change to how our bodies are physiologically designed for plant foods, Merzer leaves no stone unturned.
As part of his mission to advocate healthy eating over Medicare for all, Merzer enlisted Chef AJ to contribute more than 75 recipes—all free of oil, sugar, flour, gluten, and salt— that are distinctively delicious, nutritious, and easy to make. A bonus section of 35 additional recipes from bloggers and YouTube chefs provides further opportunities to savor the goodness and flavor that real food delivers.
