With attitude and inspiration, this lifestyle guide shows black women how they can be healthy, hippy, and happy by eating plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and legumes as part of an active lifestyle. African American women face a health crisis and explosive rates of death and disability from heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, and this book provides authoritative research to illustrate how a plant-based diet can reverse this trend. Encouraging readers to think about the foods they choose and what their choices mean to overall health, the manual shows that a diet of meat, fish, fowl, dairy, and refined grains is hazardous not only to human bodies but also to the planet and animals. With its much-needed nutritional analysis, the book also offers practical advice about how to transition to vegan foods; delicious and nutritious recipes; a comprehensive grocery-shopping list for restocking the fridge and pantry; recommended resources; and inspirational vegetarian quotes from famous African Americans, including Oprah Winfrey, Alice Walker, Angela Bassett, Erykah Badu, Russell Simmons, and Dick Gregory.

A very interesting read, written by someone who refused to eat vegetables for many years. Recipes are a bit spicy for my taste, but if you ever wanted to know what to do with collards, this is your book!
