Obesity rates are increasing, as well as many serious health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and auto-immune diseases. As these diseases become more prevalent, people are looking for ways to improve their health, and the typical treatment is to turn to medication and medical treatments.Other people are looking to figure out the root of the problem, instead of simply turning to medications for every symptom that they have. As the search continues, it has been found that there is one common theme that has a strong effect on overall health: the types of foods that a person chooses to eat.Research studies have shown that a diet high in animal products, such as meat and dairy foods, have been linked with a higher prevalence of serious health conditions such as heart disease and cancer. People who eat less meat, or no meat at all, tend to have better health and a longer lifespan.When people really start to understand these facts and how much their health is at risk, they may make the decision to make different food choices and cut back on meat consumption. But, there is a big difference between making the decision and actually implementing it in your life. The problem that people often run into is the fact that they are unsure about meal planning without meat or dairy, because most modern meals are centered around a meat dish.Additionally, people often feel that planning a vegan meal takes a lot of preparation and time to fix something tasty and filling. But, the truth is that there are many delicious dishes that can be prepared without meat or any type of animal product.I put this book together to bridge the gap, and help people find easy ways to integrate vegan eating into their daily lifestyle. These dishes are tasty, healthy and easy to make. They are designed to be One Dish Meals, which means that they are filling enough to be served on their own-- there is no need to plan 2 or 3 side dishes with each meal. Instead, you can prepare one recipe for dinner and it will be enough to satisfy your taste buds and satisfy your hunger at the same time.One of the biggest advantages to a One Dish Meal is the fact that it saves a lot of time and energy. Instead of working in the kitchen to prepare multiple dishes, you can save your time and prepare just one tasty meal. There are different types of meals in this book, including slow cooker meals, stove top meals, and oven baked meals.I have found joy in cooking vegan meals for my friends and family, and I love the surprised reactions when people learn that the entire meal was prepared without animal products. These recipes are better for your health, and they are better for the environment because they dont use meat.
