I have been waiting for this book to come out. It is really worth the wait. Easy to read, full of entertaining anecdotes and information even a well seasoned plant eater will find interesting, creative recipes and new twists on old favourites - Chef AJ and Glen deliver yet again. Plus, I was in time for the bonus audio and the extra bits, promptly delivered via email, great for listening while I run. Highly recommend to anyone interested in healthy plant based eating and beyond.
It’s a light read. I didn’t feel the author did very much research and although I’m already in the WFPB camp, if I wasn’t, I don’t think this book would have converted me. The recipes I’ve tried are quite tasty.
The main theme of this book is to chriticize everyone in the health and nutrition industry. He has no qualifications in the medical field, the nutrition field or any other health issues. He's an author writing a book to make money. I'm amazed that Chef AJ would be part of this type of book!
I love chef AJ, and I’m sure this book will be good but on the very first page of the first chapter, the author felt the need to make disparaging comments about our federal government. Very, very disappointed in the political spin right out of the gate.
I love this book! The author's honest and humorous style is extremely refreshing. He doesn't pull any punches about our medical system and he backs up everything he says with the latest science. The science about human nutrition has been settled (thank you for saying so!) and this book makes that abundantly clear. The fact that our medical system and our culture has not yet caught up with the science is for us to change - hence, the title "Own Your Health"! The recipes are a real bonus but the text is fabulous on it's own. I feel vindicated for all the times I have questioned the advice from doctors or refused to participate in their "protocols". I started calling most doctors "protocolologists" since they just want to make you do all the same tests and take all the same drugs that have become normalized - because they prescribe them, not because they are actually helpful. Read the book - it's worth every minute, you'll learn a lot and have a good laugh in the process!
