|From The Publisher*||New York Times bestselling author and vegan lifestyle expert Kathy Freston and co-author Bruce Friedrich offer a research-based self-help guide that cuts through accepted truths about protein and offers surprising new ways to include the essential nutrient in your diet.|
We are a culture obsessed with protein. But how much of it do we really need? And what kind of protein? What does a healthy diet really look like?
In Clean Protein, four-time New York Times bestselling author Kathy Freston and Bruce Friedrich, Executive Director of the Good Food Institute, bust myths about both animal and plant-based proteins and give readers a roadmap for how to kick start a clean protein lifestyle.
Complete with cutting-edge research, Clean Protein is packed with information and guidance on how to "lean in" to better choices, as Freston and Friedrich provide a practical solution to excess weight and chronic health issues. The authors cite peer-reviewed scientific studies, medical experts, and talk to the clean food pioneers to lay the groundwork of what is likely to become a food revolution that will be talked about for decades.
The book offers an easy-to-follow plan, complete with recipes and tips on how to make the shift away from food that's making us - and the planet - sick. Clean Protein packs a powerful punch to many of today's problems, and it's poised to shake up the food world, giving control of personal health and wellbeing back to the individual.
