I am living and eating like a king on a (very healthy) vegan diet after discovering the recipes of Anne Esselstyn in
Esselstyn's Prevent and Reverse Heart DIsease.

They are REALLY good, especially if you used to love cheese and fat. She has a great, very easy, recipe for no-
tahini hummus. IF you can't have fat, this is a VERY happy find.

She also has one for a stand-up-your-spoon Split Pea Soup that is terrific. It makes well over a gallon - every day,
it lasts for a week.

This is the mother of the Texan vegan firefighter -

If you get it you can give advice to the "100% of American males (who) have heart disease by age 60 and should be
treated as such."

Pressure Cooker
You can save a lot of money, and time, by using a (modern) pressure cooker for grains (rice?) and beans,
chickpeas in batches of a couple of cups dry, that then go in the fridge for the week. Two cups of chickpeas makes
about six cups cooked - 12 minutes. Ditto beans - 12 minutes. Ditto rice - 22 minutes.

This diet is similar to that of Dr. John McDougall, for the same problem - ticker. HIS wife mentioned baking
potatoes and yams. You can do a tray full at 450 degrees in 1 hour. And salsa. Very good salsa!

Then when you need a snack you don't reach for the bread, you slice a potato, heat with water, and throw on hot
sauce, lashings of salsa or hummus. So healthy you won't know yourself. Why, one might even eat this way by ...
choice ;-).

Weight
For those of us who follow this diet because we have to - ticker trouble, one side-benefit is, as Anne Essselstyn
says, you will never have to worry about your weight again. Quite an offer. If you want your svelte teenage figure
back, you can have it. For those who care. For those who never lost it, bah humbug!


If you are young, not male and not dogmatic, some seafood is fine. WITH the above, rather than INSTEAD OF would
be best.

Though The China Study by T. Colin Campbell might make you cut back even on fish. In the US they get excited at
10% differences in cancer rates. In China, Colin Campbell reports, there are differences of up to 100 times the
incidence of cancer in the population between different counties. His case is that this is diet related and caused by
the consumption of animal protein. A stunning idea. He is quite convincing.
