More Great Reads from the PPN Team

Today we’ve got another round of books (and cookbooks) from the shelves and nightstands of PPN team members.

From Regional Manager Alex Brown, we have the following recommendations:

  • Living on Live Food, by Alissa Cohen. This book delves into how to eat raw and live foods and why they can be such healthful choices. You’ll get recipes, advice, meal plans, and even some before-and-after photos.
  • The McDougall Quick & Easy Cookbook, by John A. McDougall and Mary McDougall. This cookbook is great for the busy plant-based eater who doesn’t have much time to plan and prepare meals. Inside are more than 300 healthy, whole-food recipes that take 15 minutes or less to prepare. Also included are time-saving tips for shopping and cooking. As you can see, Alex has gotten quite a lot of use from his copy!

Regional Manager Katya Trent has been poring over Dr. Joel Furhman’s Eat to Live, a book that promises to change your relationship with food and help you lose weight. This book contains recipes and advice for living longer, reducing medication needs, and being healthier overall.

Social Media Manager Hadley Johnson has two suggestions for your reading nook:

  • Prescription for Nutritional Healing, by Phyllis A. Balch, certified nutritional counselor, outlines an incredible amount of information on healing through nutrition and natural supplements in its 800+ pages. It delves into research for common illnesses and conditions and examines drug therapies, and it also discusses roles for herbs, vitamins, and other nutrients in healing.

  • Also, Healthy Eating, Healthy World, by J. Morris Hicks. Both Nelson Campbell and Dr. T. Colin Campbell wrote a forward to this book, which discusses how much both people and the planet we live on would benefit from us all taking a big step toward a plant-based diet. Not only would we reverse chronic human health conditions, we would also make progress toward arresting climate change and other environmental ills brought about by our consumption of animal products.
