    It's kind of funny to mark a cookbook as completely read, but I've perused the whole book and have made several dishes from each section, so I think that's about as good as it gets with a cookbook. Perhaps it's the lack of salt but even with the spices included most of the recipes ...

    This is a great cookbook for Whole Food Plant-based eating. It is well written. It has a lot of great recipes. The only thing I wish it had were more recipes in the main-meal chapter. There are only nine recipes in this chapter. Of the nine, three are vegetable "pastas", and one is lit...

    Truly Whole Foods Many other cookbooks wander off theme if they try to tackle healthy eating, this book does not. Lots of accompanying materials to explain the how?s and why?s... I?ve only tried a couple recipes so far, but they have delivered on promises. Be aware that this ...

    Great recipes in here, even if the title should be "How Not to Die Young" or "How to Resist Disease and Die Old." ...

    The book begins with a very condensed cover of the information in How Not to Die so if you haven't read the original book, you'll still get the basics here. Throughout the recipes, there are informational boxes on various foods and why they're good for you as well as tips for buying an...

    3.5 Firstly. I NEED to read the actual How Not To Die book because the parts I really enjoyed were at the beginning which were very informative nutritional facts and I know more of that would be in the original. While the recipes gave me an insight into different ways I could incor...

    The How Not to Die Cookbook by Michael Greger with Gene Stone offers a plethora of plant-based recipes that are easy and interesting. Greger makes the recipes accessible even for those who aren't adventurous cooks. While he does include some ingredients that might be unfamiliar to some...

    My husband and I were huge fans of Dr. Greger's book so I had to pre-order his accompanying cookbook. We have made about 10 recipes from it and they have all been AWESOME! I think my favorite recipe so far has been the Curried Chickpea Wraps. We also enjoyed the Black Bean Burgers, Len...

    Dr. Michael Greger has made a huge impact on my health through his recommendations about nutrition in the past, and I have been looking forward to his cookbook. It doesn't disappoint! ...

    Recipes look enticing. After 3 weeks of eating the "How Not to Die" way, I find myself cooking for three hours at a time to try more complicated vegetables than merely steaming them :) I have become more attuned to longer cooking sessions, so look forward to trying recipes in this boo...

    I have a love/hate relationship with several of Robin Robertson's cookbooks, which I use on a regular basis. In collaborating with Dr. Greger, I think she did an amazing job of coming up with new flavors following Dr. Greger's guidelines, and so this is my favorite of her books to date...

    2.5. Plant based vegan recipes. Nice layout and photos but to be honest some of these recipes I'd rather die than eat. Unless someone can make them for me.... ...

    I have a few vegan cookbooks now, but this one stands out because of the balance between simplicity and not over relying on starches. The recipes do a great job of incorporating vegetables and nuts while (mostly) not having too many components. ...

    I didn't realize there was a 'How Not to Die' book and a 'How Not to Die' Cookbook... Guess I started with the cookbook. The preface was incredibly interesting. I enjoyed it and learned quite a bit. After perusing the recipes, I decided they looked like something I could actually d...

    A catchy title but the reality is we will all die at some point. There are a lot of views of what is the "best diet" and this is basically aligned to a vegan approach. It has some good swap in items to replace common things you may rely on and a good set of recipes to implement the die...

    I was fascinated by "How Not To Die", but I found this companion cookbook a little disappointing. Many of the recipes looked kind of dull, and there were a fair number of recipes that I think of as "faking food" - foods that are pretending to be something else that has meat in it. (e.g...

    I love Dr. Greger. I love his website, I love his Year in Review videos, I love How Not to Die. I do not love the cookbook. 95% of the recipes contain nutritional yeast, white miso paste, or both. Almost every recipe has a lovely photo, which is a big point in its favour, but there ...

    Great whole food, plant-based recipes. Overall the preparation is straightforward and there are many recipes that don't require a huge list of ingredients. I'm not a foodie and don't enjoy cooking much and this cookbook fits my style well. Dr. Greger's humor and good-natured persona...

    Don?t get me wrong I like Doc Greger and think he does good work, but this is another not so great plant-based/vegan cookbook. I read it online through my library and the recipes involve too many ingredients and some are not always easy to come by. I prefer simpler recipes which is w...

    One of the few cookbooks that build recipes base on double-blind plant-based eating research. The recipes are very good considering that opening sentence. The cookbook would have been more helpful to me if the recipes were pre-logged in MyFitnessPall or if the pages at least include Ma...

    Lots of great information, not just reviews of scientific studies on foods but also creative ways to incorporate good foods into your diet. Some of the studies he relies on for proof of effectiveness are based on in vitro studies (ie- test tube studies vs studies done in people eating ...

    I haven't tried making any dessert or drinks, but from the savoury recipes, this book is a winner. One piece of advice - the whole jig on onion (red and spring) is a little bit too crazy for me. I'd put in half as much, or even less. Otherwise, great cookbook - always my go to when I f...

    "The How Not To Die Cookbook" is even more than I expected. Not only are the recipes very well structured and diverse, Dr. Michael Greger filled the book with tips and tricks to make eating a whole-food plant-based diet even more practical. And he encourages people to try it out in the...

    Beautiful, useful, and creative cookbook. There are variations and practicalities that can be adapted and changed for variety. It's easy to make special meals that are healthy and that can be enjoyed without regrets. This cookbook is most useful in partnership with HOW NOT TO DIE, wh...

    I love this cookbook. I do not normally like to cook but these recipes are easy to make. I just finished reading the book How Not To Die. We have been eating like this for two weeks now and I feel great. I don?t miss sugar, meat or processed foods. If you are interested in becoming h...

    The cookbook companion to How Not to Die is less useful than the book itself; there are many better recipes out there that adhere well enough to a plant-based whole-foods oil-free diet to be very healthful. Forks Over Knives and Dr. John McDougall provide many excellent recipes for fre...

    The absolute best whole foods plant-based cookbook out there from one of the diet's biggest advocates and my personal hero- Dr. Michael Greger. The chocolate truffles are to die for and a massive hit even among non-vegans. I roll them in unsweetened coconut flakes instead of the crushe...
