    This is a compendium to the book by her husband and to be honest (thus the 4 stars) I much prefer the recipes in the original book - by far better in my opinoin. With that said, while I had been neglectful in doing a lot of cooking over the years, eating plant based now has forced me to get out old recipes and rework them so that they comply.

Some prep work and grocery shopping once a week and then each day you are good to go. Just as fast as doing the drive thru or ordering in or sitting and waiting in a restaurant so just a new adjustment!

    There are a handful of recipes I'd like to try in this book, including cauliflower steaks. If I can sell them on my husband, who doesn't care for cauliflower, I'll change my rating to 4 stars! In the meantime, for me the most valuable part of the book were the several tips for preventing and reversing heart disease(possibly a sum up of the book on which this one is based). A couple that I will be adding to my already healthier choices are - eat your food, don't drink it; and completely eliminate There are a handful of recipes I'd like to try in this book, including cauliflower steaks.

    Love this whole food, plant-based, no oil cookbook. There is a great Getting Started and a Q&A section and in the beginning of the book. I read it quickly over Christmas break and have already made a few of the recipes which were delicious. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is that while there are lots of pictures, there isn't one for every recipe which I like. Love this whole food, plant-based, no oil cookbook.

    I literally want to make everything in this cookbook and I actually think I will! That never happens when I get a cookbook! If you are looking to add more plant-based foods to your diet and cut back on oils, there are so many simple ideas here! I’ve tried just a few so far and they were easy and delicious.

    I started reading the cookbook last evening and finished it this morning. Making my shopping list and ready to try out some new recipes. The salad dressings alone are worth getting your hands on this book.

    This program is life-altering, and this cookbook makes it easy and delicious! Added bonus: the author, Ann Crile Esselstyn, and her daughter, Jane Esselstyn, demo these recipes on their YouTube channel and they’re absolutely delightful!

But the recipes and techniques are helpful anywhere in the world that a person wants to have a healthier heart and circulatory system. Most of the ingredients are fresh foods, and that is the emphasis of the book: eat low on the food chain, add lots of green vegetables and fresh fruit to your daily regime, and get enough protein from beans and whole grains. Lots of attractive color photographs and encouraging advice.

    I bought The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease Cookbook by Ann Crile Esselstyn and Jane Esselstyn when it was released in 2014. I've used it several times though there are several recipes in it I've yet to make. Most of the recipes are quite easy to make and offering interesting flavors. It's a wonderful cookbook for those just starting on a plant-based diet or those looking to add some simple but tasty recipes to their plant-based diet.

    It's hard to believe that I sat across the table from this man, and his wife, Ann, just a few years ago. While we do have some similarities, like fathers who died young, I hope in the future, to contribute something more to our healthcare system, than what I've accomplished so far.

    Great stuff - my partner has some heart issues and also needs to lose weight. I need to lose weight and have diabetes. So the recipes from here are invaluable. On my easy access cook book shelf - for easy reference unlike others which are for inspiration only now.

    I liked some of the recipes but others were more bland without salt. I might tailor some of them but then it might defeat some of the health benefits

    It's really much more fun to watch Ann Crile Esselstyn and her daughter Jane make recipes from this book. They have a bunch of youtube videos which are quite fun & entertaining.

    This book was recommended by our GP, the meals are interesting and easy. We have not mastered Plant Based eating but definitely increasing our vegetable intake.

    I was really excited to pick up a copy of this from the library. I was expecting something along the lines of the Happy Herbivore or the Forks Over Knives cookbooks or even Dreena Burton. Instead, this book is much more what the title implies--a book of recipes to prevent and reverse heart disease. What that means is that the recipes at least seem from reading them (since I didn't actually try cooking any of them) very austere. No nuts, in addition to the little refined oil. Little salt, sugar, I was really excited to pick up a copy of this from the library. I was expecting something along the lines of the Happy Herbivore or the Forks Over Knives cookbooks or even Dreena Burton.

What that means is that the recipes at least seem from reading them (since I didn't actually try cooking any of them) very austere. No nuts, in addition to the little refined oil. Little salt, sugar, etc. And LOTS of gluten and oatmeal. I can't have either, so while I commend the authors for healthy recipes, the breakfast section was almost totally useless to me, as it was primarily oatmeal recipes. And many of the entrees, the loafs and burgers and such, were also oatmeal-dependent. That's fine. Oatmeal is extremely nutritious, and there are plenty of people who can eat it. But I can't, even gluten-free oats, and so the recipes just mostly frustrated me, in addition to not looking very tasty. I'm going to take this back to the library so someone who needs the cookbook can use it, and I'm going to go back to some of my whole-foods, plant-based cookbooks like the ones I mentioned above. It was worth a try. Just not worth a buy (for me).

    As a vegan with a nut allergy, it was refreshing to have a nut free cookbook (minus some recipes with almond milk, which is easy to sub out). There are some creative, tasty sounding recipes that I look forward to trying, but the cookbook also seems to overcomplicate some simple things (like stretching out hummus variations over way too many pages).
