Eating got me into this mess and eating is going to get me out of this mess

THE SALAD IS THE MAIN DISH

The greatest act can be one little victory ...Celebrate the moment as it turns into one more. Another chance at victory another chance to score. The measure of the moment is a diff'rence of degree. Just one little victory, a spirit breakin' free.One little victory-Rush

Mark Bittman’s latest book is "VB6: Eat Vegan Before 6:00 to Lose Weight and Restore Your Health . . . for Good" (forward by Dean Ornish, MD). I know some of you are rolling your eyes at the concept of only eating a plant-based diet part-time. For many people who are trying to eat healthier after a lifetime of consuming the Standard American Diet (SAD), this is a mainstream way to transition to what might someday become a full-time plant-based diet.

There’s room at the table for everyone; and along with vegan recipes, VB6 includes some healthy non-vegan meals that can easily be converted using seitan, tofu, tempeh, or beans. I am a longtime Mark Bittman fan. His recipes are straightforward and always good. You never have to worry if one of his recipes will fail if you make it as written. To make the recipes Fuhrman/Esselstyn-friendly, you need to modify them to reduce oil and salt. If you know someone who’s on the fence and isn’t willing or ready to consider something like The Engine 2 Diet or Eat to Live, this is the perfect book. If you just love delicious plant-based dishes, this is also the perfect book – just convert or skip over the few dishes that contain more than plants.

Here are some recipes:
