Heart disease remains one of the nation’s deadliest killers — and also one of the most preventable.
In 2007, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn published Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease.
Based on his twenty-year groundbreaking nutritional study, the book offered a revolutionary program to stop, treat, and even reverse heart disease.
Dr. Esselstyn convincingly argues that the key to abolishing heart disease is eliminating meat, dairy, oil and nuts (with minimal salt and sweeteners).
With plant-based, oil-free nutrition even the sickest patients experience a drop in their cholesterol, a boost in their energy, and see their heart disease and related symptoms reverse.
In Dr. Esselstyn’s original study, compliant patients continue to thrive — some are now well into their 80s.
The Prevent and Reverse Cookbook proves that while eating no meat, no dairy, no oil, and no nuts may sound intimidating, but it is doable and delectable.
As Ann says, eating this way is empowering and “opens up a delicious and colorful array vegetables, legumes, and whole grains brimming with fiber, nutrients and antioxidants, all great nourishment for your heart and your overall health.”
Ann and Jane introduce readers to the wonders of kale, and other hearty and delicious greens, sweet potatoes, artichokes, beets, parsnips, broccoli, cucumbers, asparagus, cannellini beans, lentils and so much more.
With recipes like Lemon and Kale Open Face Sandwiches, Caramelized Onion Hummus, Triple-Decker Lasagna and Five-Star Rice and Beans, eliminating heart disease has never been so delicious.
The plant-based movement has resonated with readers.
With three New York Times bestsellers under their belts in as many years, the Esselstyn family proves once again that heart healthy is doable, accessible and just what the doctor ordered.
