I just got this book yesterday and read through most of it last night! The other reviewer clearly has not read the book! It is packed with great information about eating vegan or plant-strong as Rip calls it. I love the shorter chapters, gets to the point!!! Also the recipes! They all look divine, and the pictures are a nice addition. I highly recommend people read the book and ignore the beef lovers! - Shelly T.

The idea of eating only plant based foods is flawed. The only way to get real high quality protein is from animal products. The health problems associated with eating meat occur only when we eat TOO MUCH meat. But eating small servings of lean meat about 4 or 5 times a week is beneficial. Moreover, human teeth are shown to be the teeth of omnivores. Also, our closest relatives, the chimpanzee, eats meat, though in small quantities.
The problem with the typical American diet is that meat is shown as the centerpiece of each meal, when it should actually fill only a small portion of your plate. But cutting meat out altogether is a mistake. It is very difficult to get a full day's nutrition just from plant based food.
