Healthy At Last
Can you overcome diabetes and other health conditions by dropping animal products and processed foods from your diet and understanding the basics of nutrition? Eric Adams, mayor of New York City, believes that you can.
After being told by doctors that his type 2 diabetes diagnosis and related conditions were irreversible, Eric Adams was able to prove them wrong by moving to a wholly plant-based and unprocessed diet. Now, he is determined to spread the word that not only are these kind of radical health improvements possible, they can also be enjoyable.
Focusing on the legacy of Soul Food for African American communities, Eric shows how you can make your diet healthier without abandoning the heritage of traditional foods, which for many people are about much more than flavour. From Black Bean Pumpkin Quesadillas with Sweet Pepper Salsa to Chipotle Mac 'n' Cheese and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies, Eric is keen to show this is not about restriction but instead finding joy in real food. Packed with up-to-date nutritional advice and recipes from the likes of Dr Michael Greger, Raymond Jackson, Paul McCartney, Alan Cummings, and more, this is the perfect book for anyone looking to improve their health in small, manageable, and pleasurable steps.
I can personally attest to the truth Eric shares within the pages of Healthy at Last. . . . Eric's book will empower you to change your life and the lives of those around you.

Heart disease, type 2 diabetes, early-stage prostate cancer, hypertension, and other chronic diseases may often be reversed and prevented by changing diet and lifestyle. In this important and compelling book, Eric Adams describes how. Highly recommended.
