 New guide highlights 1,000 healthy, plant-based alternatives to the Western diet

 


Atlanta, GA (BlackNews.com) — Recent weeks have seen a wave of news reports and published studies on the dangers of a meat-heavy Western diet, ranging from childhood obesity to links to Alzheimer’s disease. In May, the World Cancer Research Fund published an authoritative 850-page report on the link between meat consumption and cancer, warning people to think seriously about their dietary choices. This news comes on the heels of several studies citing the risks associated with processed foods, preservatives, and fast food diets, all features of the Standard American Diet.

Yet – with all the negative attention – most Americans still have little knowledge of any alternatives to this diet. But a group of young health activists hope to change that, with the publication of a guide to over 1,000 healthy, meatless recipes from around the world. Their goal is to introduce Americans to the exotic flavors of the world around them, using the plant-based diet of many of the world’s inhabitants.

A Taste of Life: 1,000 Vegetarian Recipes from Around the World is a 400-page cookbook featuring recipes from over 200 nations, offering a wide range of tantalizing cuisine, ranging from foreign flavors like West African Jollof Rice and Thai Panang Curry to more familiar treats like spicy tacos and vegan Shish kebabs. The book is scheduled to be released on Vegan Earth Day, June 21st 2011.

Americans are not dying from starvation, but are undernourished by eating food full of empty calories that make them overweight and at increased risk for dozens of preventable illnesses, according to editor and community health activist, Supreme Understanding. Studies have shown that a plant-based diet can help reduce the risk of many preventable diseases, and can allow you to eat more without gaining as much weight.

“Cooking without meat doesn’t limit you to a diet of lettuce and lima beans,” says Understanding, “People need alternatives… and it’s not that people don’t want to eat better, it’s just that many of us simply haven’t figured out how.”

The book contains over 1,000 easy-to-prepare ideas for appetizers, salads, soups, sauces, entrees, and desserts, including recipes that are easy and affordable for cooks with limited budgets. Detailed topics include how to cook using a variety of methods (written with novice chefs in mind), how to plan meals, what tools to use, and how to buy the most affordable ingredients. It also includes over 100 juices, smoothies, and herbal teas, raw foods recipes, and a comprehensive nutritional guide.
