FOOD: What to Eat
All of the plant-based doctors recommend eating an abundance of FRESH FRUITS and VEGETABLES, LEGUMES, WHOLE GRAINS, but NO DAIRY or EGGS and VERY LITTLE or NO MEAT or PROCESSED OIL.
What each doctor recommends, however, does vary a bit. Some, notably Dr. John McDougall and Dr. Caldwell Eselystyn, recommend eating no added oil, nuts or avocados while Dr. Joel Fuhrman recommends eating 1-2 ounces of nuts and seeds per day, and the addition of avocado and a higher amount of non-starchy vegetables.
I most closely follow Dr. Fuhrman’s nutritarian diet and you’ll find that reflected in the recipes. I don’t recommend added oil, fat, or sugar. Some of the recipes have maple syrup or date sugar.
