The China Study, with 850,000 copies sold, has been hailed as one of the most important health and nutrition books ever published. It revealed that the traditional Western diet has led to our modern health crisis and the widespread growth of obesity, diabetes, heart disease, and cancer. Based on the most comprehensive nutrition study ever conducted, the book reveals that a plant-based diet leads to optimal health with the power to halt or reverse many diseases.
The China Study Cookbook takes these scientific findings and puts them to action. Written by LeAnne Campbell, daughter of The China Study author T. Colin Campbell, PhD, and mother of two hungry teenagers, The China Study Cookbook features delicious, easily prepared plant-based recipes with no added fat and minimal sugar and salt that promote optimal health.
From her Breakfast Home-Fry Hash and Fabulous Sweet Potato Enchiladas to No-Bake Peanut Butter Bars and Cheese(less) Cake, all of LeAnne’s recipes follow three important principles:
1. Optimal nutrition is based on eating food rather than nutrient supplements
2. The closer that foods are to their native statesprepared with minimal cooking, salting, and processingthe greater the long-term health benefits of eating them
3. It is best to choose locally and organically grown produce whenever possible
Filled with helpful tips on substitutions, keeping foods nutrient-rich, and transitioning to a plant-based diet, The China Study Cookbook shows how to transform individual health and the health of the entire family.
“The China Study Cookbook combines the best and healthiest practices of the plant-based movement with no-oil dishes you and your family will love.”

It's refreshing to have a cookbook totally full of no-salt, no-oil recipes. Most of the time, I have to alter a recipe to fit what I want. The only problem with most of these recipes is that they are a bit bland. I usually add herbs or something to spice it up. It's an easy fix.
This is now my favorite, go to cookbook. Most of the recipes have been excellent and there is a wide variety to choose from. I've expanded my repertoire of recipes and really feel much better eating less fat. My weight has dropped and I don't have any digestive problems. I highly recommend this book.
This recipe book is full of healthy and delicious recipes! I highly recommend adding it to your collection of recipe books.
The China Study has a lot of easy-peasy recipes for 100% plant-based, healthy meals. It should be a godsend for anybody who wants themselves or their family living in a household where they can get breaks from all the processed and disgusting "food" shoved on them every day. The first half of the book contains many references to a study that is never really cited or footnoted, but that's jut the leadup to hook people into a reading some recipes and diet plans that are sure to lead them to a tastier and healthier way of eating. Bottom line: this one is a good read for anybody wanting to make a change.
THis books goes right by my Engine 2 books and my Get Healthy Go Vegan cookbook...a MUST HAVE!
This book is wonderful. I've had it about a week and I've made several things out of it. My husband and seven year old daughter have loved everything. It's quickly becoming my favorite cookbook!
