    Dr. Neal Barnard comes with an impressive résumé: He’s a professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C.; he’s the president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a group promoting veganism; he’s authored quite a few studies on health and veganism. Which is why I am not going to give this cookbook a rating — because a rating would depend on whom you are. Dr. Barnard insists that diabetes is not caused by a surfeit of sugar and carbohydrate-lade Dr. Neal Barnard comes with an impressive résumé: He’s a professor at the George Washington University School of Medicine in Washington, D.C.; he’s the president of the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, a group promoting veganism; he’s authored quite a few studies on health and veganism. Which is why I am not going to give this cookbook a rating — because a rating would depend on whom you are. Dr. Barnard insists that diabetes is not caused by a surfeit of sugar and carbohydrate-laden foods, such as potatoes or bread — the latter is the conventional medical position — but by too much fat, especially animal fat. Consequently, none of the recipes in this cookbook have any meat or even animal products: no eggs, milk, butter, cheese, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, etc. Dr. Barnard’s cookbook is strictly vegan. As a vegan cookbook, this is a five-star tome, including vegan variations on quesadillas, creamy smoothies, chili, burgers, ice cream and more. If you’re vegan, you’ve hit the jackpot. But what if you’re diabetic? Or you’re looking for low-carb recipes? While I respect Dr. Barnard, I do not believe in his notion that fat, not carbs, are making Americans fat nor bringing on our current epidemic of Type 2 diabetes. If low-fat diets were the answer, then the low-fat craze of the 1960s through the 2000s would have turned the United States into a svelte, healthy nation with barely a diabetic to be found. And it didn’t. In addition, the vast majority of physicians and medical researchers do not agree that veganism without regard to sugars and carbohydrates will improve — much less, reverse — high blood sugar. (Dr. Barnard adds maple syrup to all kinds of recipes, including those which don’t need sweetening. Very few of these recipes are low-carbohydrate, needless to say.) I commend Dr. Barnard’s commitment to cruelty-free eating, but I don’t believe that eschewing meat and animal products will reverse anything about your health, much less diabetes. If you decide to become a vegan, do so for ethical reasons, not to cure your diabetes. In the interest of full disclosure, low-fat diets never helped me, and I have lost 25 pounds in the last six months by counting carbs and eating more vegetables. If you’re like me, you’ll find some interesting recipes in Dr. Barnard’s cookbook, but you’re rating will be closer to three stars rather than five. The cookbook is available free for those with a Kindle Unlimited subscription.

    The 150 plant-based recipes in this book may be interesting and flavorful, but the author did a big disservice by packaging it as a cookbook for reversing diabetes without drugs. Many of the recipes use sugar in various amounts and types, with some well past the desired levels for a diabetic. Most of the sauces and dressings include either maple syrup, applesauce, or coconut nectar, despite the fact that added sugars can be bad for a diabetic's overall well being.

    Certainly something to consider. Lots of good information at the beginning of the book to explain it's premise. The recipes are hearty enough that you wouldn't feel hungry.

    2.5 / 5 stars The entire premise is to just become a vegan. Honestly, while some of the recipes sound good they all look like too much work to actually make them part of a regular menu plan.

    This is a good starter cookbook, but the PCRM website has many more recipes as does his book about reversing diabetes.

The recipe author is Dreena Burton. I’ve tried a few recipes from another book of hers on cooking plant-based for a family and loved them. So that nudged me towards purchase of this book. I’ve already tried several recipes and they are terrific. One of the challenges of this lifestyle is managing without adding processed oils (and yes, that means no EVOO, which has no real health value except when compared to a diet high in animal fat). Burton has given me several easy and extremely tasty dressings to use on salads, as dips, in Buddha bowls. She is a believer in batch cooking and I’m attempting to add that habit to my life too. I’m really glad I bought this as it provides guidance for how to get started living a new way. To succeed, you need tasty recipes, some new equipment (a high-powered blender is an essential tool), and support (Burton does respond to questions on her website and Facebook page). Highly recommend. I withheld 1 star because so many recipes are family sized; more authors need to provide options for 1-2 person families.

    Wonderful recipes! My husband reversed late onset Type 2 diabetes, dropping >25 pounds and reducing A1c >12 to below 7 by following the guidance in Dr. Barnard’s book ‘Program for Reversing Diabetes Without Drugs’. Maybe it’s more accurate to say he put his diabetes in remission, since to keep his metrics where he wants them requires ongoing adherence to meals without extracted oils (no matter how many extra virgins) made entirely from intact plant parts: roots & stalks, leaves and blossoms, ber Wonderful recipes!

Garden of Eden eating. I got off statins the same way. If you doubt the science that clarifies how fat not ‘carbs’ leads to insulin resistance, here’s a start at comprehending: https://nutritionfacts.org/2016/11/17.... To keep him off metformin & me off statins, we do plenty of weekly batch cooking that makes our fridge an easy-access buffet of plant-based whole (intact, unprocessed or lightly processed) foods to allow us quick meal assemblies. Many thanks to Dr. Barnard and Dreena Burton for all the good ideas in this information-packed cookbook.

    I tried the Thai corn and sweet potato stew and it was tasty. Better the second day. But the prep time and variety of ingredients didn't make it very weeknight friendly. A good variety of recipes that I haven't seen in every other WFPB book, but again the ingredients may not be in every pantry which might be a turn off. I would have liked to see a better selection of main dishes. There were at least four recipes for various burgers. And the layout is strange. A photo spread for select recipes is I tried the Thai corn and sweet potato stew and it was tasty. Better the second day.

A photo spread for select recipes is past the halfway point of the book in between two different main dish recipes. So alongside the Southwest tofu recipe is a photo for low fat granola. And a picture of chocolate baked bananas alongside the lentil Bolognese recipe. Why not separate the photos in the center apart from the recipes??

    A good book for plant based recipes, with good cooking tips for life in general, scattered throughout. I've made a few and did enjoy them, plus found meals relatively inexpensive to make. Overall, a good bunch of ideas to have on hand if you're trying to eat healthier. A good book for plant based recipes, with good cooking tips for life in general, scattered throughout.
