Description

Increase your lifespan and optimize your health with plant-based recipes for a longer, more vibrant life.

Authors and leading plant-based nutrition experts Julieanna Hever and Ray Cronise have spent over a decade researching diet and nutrition, analyzing longevity studies, and helping their clients achieve sustainable, lasting health benefits by adopting a whole food, plant-based diet.

In The Healthspan Solution, they share the simple and effective diet that has allowed their clients to lose weight, reverse disease, reduce or eliminate medication use, and achieve optimal health. This accessible and easy-to-follow guide examines the health risks posed by typical Western eating habits and explains how a diet rich in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, legumes, mushrooms, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices can lead to lower blood pressure, healthy weight management, and longer life.

Their flexible, customizable approach to eating challenges the conventional idea of breakfast, lunch, and dinner and focuses instead on soups, salads, sides, and sweets. With 100 delicious recipes to choose from, The Healthspan Solution make adopting a plant-based lifestyle simple and sustainable.

    Evidence-based research on the scientific underpinnings of the healthspan diet
    Easy-to-follow guidelines simplify food choices without being restrictive
    Beautifully photographed recipes offer options and flexibility

Praise for The Healthspan Solution:


“Ray and Julieanna didn’t write a fad diet book. It’s about making a permanent lifestyle transformation. The magic is I still can eat anything I want. The trick is what I want has profoundly changed. They did the trick for me and saved my life—now let them help you.”—Penn Jillette, Las Vegas entertainer and magician

“Ray is a scientific visionary and Julieanna is a master of nutrition. Together they’ve written a fact-based recipe book for longevity that belongs in every kitchen. Buy it.”—David Sinclair, PhD, AO, Professor of Genetics, Harvard Medical School
 
“Working with Julieanna and Ray has given me a profoundly new understanding of how food impacts health and how what we eat is often dictated by social influences. I’m excited to be a part of their effort to push to this message out to a far bigger audience.”—Cyan Banister, angel investor and entrepreneur

“Julieanna and Ray are an incredible team. While others have sought to demonstrate the adequacy of an exclusively plant-sourced diet, they teach how it can be superior and mimics longevity research.”—Rich Roll, plant-powered ultra athlete and author
