Fighting Heart Disease with Life-Changing Recipes
Heart disease remains one of the nation’s deadliest killers – and also one of the most preventable.

Based on a 25-year nutritional study, The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook serves up 125 delicious, plant-based recipes that can help prevent or even reverse heart disease. The book was written by Ann Crile Esselstyn, creator of the recipes in the New York Times bestselling Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease and her daughter, Jane Esselstyn, a nurse and wellness instructor, best known for her recipes in the bestselling My Beef with Meat.

The cookbook proves that while eating no meat, no dairy, no oil, and no nuts may sound intimidating, 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.

This is the perfect, easy-to-follow guide for anyone who is trying to follow their doctor's advice about eating healthier, but maybe isn't sure where to start.

Join Dr. Roizen this week to hear more about this new book and how to get your heart healthier -- one amazing meal at a time.
