Fresh recipes that avoid processed ingredients.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Whole Foods Diet Cookbook takes the whole foods movement into the kitchen and allows you to prepare nutrient-rich dishes that promote health and the environment.

The Whole Foods Diet Cookbook avoids calorie counting or the counting of carb or fat grams and instead promises weight loss and health through its more than 200 recipes, all of which include antioxidant-rich ingredients, tons of fresh produce and lean proteins.

The book also teaches how to adopt the flexitarian lifestyle - eating a primarily vegetarian diet but still allowing the consumption of sustainably-raised meat, poultry and fish.

Recipes cover the spectrum of preparation requirements from the simple to the elaborate. The Whole Foods Diet Cookbook also provides tons of information organized in easy-to-read chapters on nutrition basics.

Authors Dr. Andrew Larson and his wife Ivy Larson are also the authors of the Gold Coast Cure. Dr. Andrew Larson is the co-author of the Chicken Soup for Soul Healthy Living series.
