You’re probably wondering why we’re reviewing a book titled “The Plant Power Doctor” on a travel website. Well, leading a healthy life in terms of diet can only be a good thing if you want to be fit and able to enjoy your adventures. Plus, we follow vegan and vegetarian diets, too, so have an invested interest!
In terms of the author’s reasons for writing the book, Dr Gemma Newman had seen the benefits a plant-based diet had on her husband’s health; plus, with a history of heart disease in her own family, Gemma embarked on a journey which has culminated in the publication of this well-researched, extremely informative tome.
After considering over 600 scientific resources, the British GP – via this comprehensive book – takes you through the whole concept behind a plant-based diet. You’ll learn about the effects diet can have on our bodies and how it can actively improve many illnesses and, indeed, prevent them occurring in the first place. You’re offered an accessible, actionable plan to help you feel empowered to make positive changes to your diet and lifestyle and, ultimately, be at your optimum best.
Having explained the great benefits of such a diet, Dr Newman then shows you step-by-step how to make the transition with useful tips on foods to buy, store cupboard essentials and a large recipe section containing over 60 nutritious meal ideas to get you started.
If anyone needed convincing of the benefits of a plant-based diet, just read this book.
