Rip Esselstyn was named after Rip Van Winkle, but this super-fit former fireman obviously hasn't been sleeping. His cookbook The Engine 2 Diet set a high standard with its first-rate recipes and its cogent defense of a plant-based diet. In My Beef with Meat, he carries his tasty, double-pronged offensive further, providing sound advice about healthy diet even as he leads the way with 125 new Engine 2 recipes. My Beef with Meat qualifies as a bona fide myth buster: Esselstyn explains, for instance, how handed-down nostrums about needing meat and dairy for strong bones are untrue. He also exposes the weak side of trendy regimens including the Mediterranean and Paleo diets. As informative as it is tasty.
