The China Study All-Star Collection review & giveaway
May 6th is the release date of the latest cookbook from The China Study series—The China Study All-Star Collection by LeAnne Campbell. I’m particularly excited about this book because I got to be a (very) small part of it! My photos are showcased alongside Dreena Burton’s delicious and nutritious recipes, like the gingerbread granola you see below, which is by far one of the best granola recipes I’ve ever tasted (it’s on page 28, hint hint).
The collection also includes recipes from other top chefs and leaders within the health-focused, plant-based community:
- Chef AJ (Unprocessed)
- Ani Phyo (Ani’s Raw Food Kitchen)
- Christina Ross
- Lindsay Nixon (The Happy Herbivore Cookbook series)
- Heather Crosby (YumUniverse.com)
- Del Sroufe (Forks Over Knives: The Cookbook)
- Christy Morgan (Blissful Bites)
- Mary McDougall and John McDougall, MD (The Starch Solution)
- Laura Theodore (Jazzy Vegetarian Classics)
- Tracy Russell (The Green Smoothie Detox Guide)
The original China Study was such an influential book and has sold well over a million copies since it was first published in 2005. Dr. Campbell, along with others like Dr. McDougall, Dr. Esselstyn and Dr. Barnard, have made major contributions in shifting public opinion about the whole-food, plant-based diet.
As said in The China Study, the simplest solution to optimal health and prevention of disease comes down to three simple things: breakfast, lunch and dinner. The meals included in this all-star collection of recipes follows the nutritional principles laid out in the original book, and prove how easy and delicious a plant-based lifestyle can be. Take this creamy fettuccine (page 158), for example, where cashews and almonds are blended into a creamy, protein-rich sauce.
Or these sneaky chickpea burgers (page 127), which offer a sneaky albeit effective way to add nutritious veggies to your kids’ (or picky adults?) meals.
Whether you’ve been living plant-based for decades or you are just beginning, I think you’ll find this cookbook to be a tasty, useful source of recipes from an incredible group of talented chefs.
