The Vegetable Diet in Review - Inside The Cookbook
The Vegetable Diet focuses on humans eating vegetables instead of flesh, meat or fish. The majority of this book is a compilation of letters from various medical professionals, and others, who have removed meat from their diets for a prolonged period of time and what affect it has on their health. There was an overwhelming majority consensus that a vegetable diet improves digestion, memory and every day functioning. The most amazing part is that people have overcome multiple diseases by changing their diet. I was surprised that milk and some breads were part of the vegetable diet.
This book was not an easy read. It took several chapters for me to get into the subject matter and understand what the idea was, but once I did I was hooked. I'm very interested in nutrition and how what we eat affects our bodies. This book delves into that very subject in great depth. I encourage anyone who has a chronic disease to read these words. Especially those who can't find relief with modern medicine cures.
What I didn't find in this book was recipes. I was quite confused that this was labeled as a cookbook. While it is definitely a thorough nutrition book, it is not a 'diet' or 'cookbook'. It does say that this book is part of a collection of 'cookbooks' so maybe this was the first one to introduce the importance of eating vegetables? Either way, if nutrition is important to you and yours, I'd recommend reading this one.
