We’ve been hearing for a while now about how a plant-based diet is great for one’s health and the environment. A new book from Leslie Beck articulates clearly and accessibly the evidence and benefits of eating plant-based foods like fruits and vegetables, soy, nuts, grains and more. The book is called The Plant-Based Power Diet: 10 Simple Steps to a Healthier, Leaner, Energetic You. Inside there are tips on how to transition from your current diet, as well as meal plans, and over forty recipes. Leslie Beck is a registered dietician and a leading nutritionist in Canada. She’s a bestselling author and read regularly in the Globe and Mail, and is also seen on CTV News a lot. Her website is at www.lesliebeck.com. The book is published Penguin.
