VEGAN FIREFIGHTERS ENGINE 2 DIET BOOK - HEALTHY PLANT BASED MEALS

Isn't this is a great book to get fired up about... It's the Engine 2 Diet book written by firefighter Rip Esselstyn. Whose father Caldwell Esselstyn, incidentally wrote the highly regarded book Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease: The Revolutionary, Scientifically Proven, Nutrition-Based Cure. The crew at Texas based firehouse #2 all report having more energy, and lost unwanted pounds. Most significant however, is that after only 28 days on the vegan diet, all the firefighters showed improved cholesterol levels... And if all this yummy food and health benefits weren't enough... Esselstyn says:

"For compassion reasons and for environmental reasons, it's the best way to go." He said he finds factory farming practices inhumane and environmentally destructive. "To think that a pig or a cow or a chicken has no more feelings than your dog or cat is ludicrous," Esselstyn said. Of the environmental arguments against factory farming, he said that because of the vast amount of resources the farms require, "eating less meat is the second most important positive environmental decision that we as people can make, only behind our choice of transportation."
