It’s somewhat fitting that my last post talked about avocado sauce and guacamole – and tips for storing both. Today I have another avocado recipe for you… though, this time I truly doubt you will have ANY leftovers!
This recipe is an exclusive sneak peek from Engine 2 Diet‘s new book My Beef with Meat: The Healthiest Argument for Eating a Plant-Strong Diet. This book follows Rip Esselstyn’s bestselling Engine 2 Diet, which has helped people transform their health through a whole-foods plant-based diet. If you follow E2D on facebook, you will regularly see testimonials from their readers of weight loss, lowered cholesterol, and even disease reversal (heart disease and diabetes most notably).
In just a few weeks, Rip’s new book “My Beef With Meat” hits shelves. In this new book, Esselstyn shares insight about the foods that most people believe are healthy, yet science reveals are not. My Beef With Meat tackles the questions and skepticism surrounding a plant-based diet, including how we don’t need meat and dairy to have strong bones or get enough protein, how we can get enough calcium and iron in plants, and the problems with the (currently trendy) Paleo fad-diet. In short, Rip delivers the message – and proof – that if you eat plants, you lose weight and feel great.
Today, Engine 2 Diet has kindly given my plant-powered readers an early inside scoop on this book with an exclusiverecipe release!
