More Good Reads

Picking up where we left off on Monday, here are some more good reads from PlantPure team members for these long, cold (or maybe not-so-cold yet) winter nights. We hope you enjoy!

  • Regional Manager Alex Brown shared with us a book that was instrumental in starting him on his plant-based journey: Raw Food Made Easy for 1 or 2 People, by Jennifer Cornbleet. Alex has an earlier edition, but there’s a new revised edition out with more recipes and nutritional information included with each recipe. This book is awesome for easy, no-cook, raw-food recipes for one or two people; recipes contain common ingredients and you won’t need a kitchen full of fancy appliances and utensils.
  • Pod Director Laura Dietrich says she really enjoyed The Mad Cowboy, by Howard F. Lyman. Lyman, a fourth-generation Montana cattle rancher, examines the use of chemicals in agriculture and warns that the U.S. cattle industry is using the same practices—and making the same mistakes—that caused the outbreak of mad cow disease in the U.K. This book features both a profound story of personal transformation as well as a plea for readers to re-evaluate their diets for the good of the planet.
  • Social Media Manager Hadley Johnson has a recommendation from her bookshelf: Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s The Low-Carb Fraud, written with Howard Jacobson, Ph.D. The writers examine the claims of the trendy low-carb diet plans like the South Beach diet, Atkins, and the Paleo diet, and find that not all carbs are created equal. If you’ve considered a low-carb diet, or you know someone who has, this book is definitely worth a read.
  • Another book on Hadley’s shelf is Staying Healthy with Nutrition, by Dr. Elson M. Haas with Dr. Buck Levin. This book outlines Dr. Haas’ many years of practical experience and combines it with scientific research to yield an encyclopedic examination of the building blocks of nutrition, food groups, diets from around the world, choosing healthy foods and constructing a healthy diet, and how nutrition affects health.

We’ll feature more PlantPure team member book recommendations and reviews in the future, so do check back often!

Important PlantPure Food Update

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

From Plants to Politics
From Plants to Politics

by Nelson Campbell April 18, 2017

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
