The Get Healthy, Go Vegan CookbookAnnotation
In Dr. Neal Barnard's Get Healthy, Go Vegan Cookbook , the country's leading diabetes team weighs in on America's hottest dietary trend. The cookbook is based on a landmark two-year study conducted by Dr. Barnard, which showed that a vegan diet more effectively controls type 2 diabetes.

Featuring 125 flavorful recipes, readers will find all-occasion dishes that use familiar ingredients and require minimal effort.
