Eat more whole plants. This simple recommendation is at the heart of a building consensus: The healthiest diet is a plant-based diet. Plants have spent millions of years evolving their defenses against disease. Now, studies indicate that by eating whole, minimally processed plant foods, humans too can gain protection … against everyday illness, diabetes, obesity, depression, mental decline, heart disease and even cancer.

In The Plant-Powered Diet, registered dietitian Sharon Palmer marshals the most up-to-date findings in nutrition to explain both why you should fill more of your plate with whole-plant foods and how to do so, whether you're a longtime vegan or a committed omnivore. Her book offers:

  • Essential information on the healthiest plant foods: whole grains, vegetables, fruits, nuts, legumes, and even herbs, spices, chocolate, coffee, tea, and wine
  • Advice for navigating the supermarket, kitchen, restaurant menus, on-the-go meals, exercise, and more
  • A 14-day meal plan, plus daily action alerts to get you started
  • 75 original plant-based recipes for every meal … all with complete nutritional data
The Plant-Powered Diet is not a diet you'll go on today and off tomorrow. It's a simple, satisfying and thoroughly delicious way of eating that can last your lifetime … and lengthen it.

Cycling Science tours readers through a wide variety of topics, from tire rolling resistance and the difference between yield strength and ultimate strength, to the importance of aerodynamics and the impact that shaved legs have on speed. Each chapter explores a different subject-fundamentals, strength and stability, materials, power, aerodynamics, and the human factor-and is organized around a series of questions: What is the ideal frame shape? What is the biggest source of drag? What keeps a bicycle from falling over? How much power can a cyclist produce? Which muscles does cycling use? Each question is examined with the aid of explanatory diagrams and illustrations, and the book can be used to search for particular topics, or read through for a comprehensive overview of how machine and rider work together.

Athletes have much to gain from understanding the science of their sports, and Cycling Science will be a must-read for cyclists of all stripes-professionals, recreational riders, and anyone seeking to enhance their enjoyment of cycling.

Eating on the Wild Side is the first book to reveal the nutritional history of our fruits and vegetables. Starting with the wild plants that were central to our original diet, investigative journalist Jo Robinson describes how 400 generations of farmers have unwittingly squandered a host of essential fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. New research shows that these losses have made us more vulnerable to our most troubling conditions and diseases: obesity, diabetes, cancer, cardiovascular disease, chronic inflammation and dementia.

In an engaging blend of science and story, Robinson describes how and when we transformed the food in the produce aisles. Wild apples, for example, have from three to 100 times more antioxidants than Galas and Honeycrisps, and are five times more effective in killing cancer cells. Compared with spinach, one of our present-day "superfoods," wild dandelion leaves have eight times more antioxidant activity, two times more calcium, three more times vitamin A, and five times more vitamins K and E.

How do we begin to recoup the losses of essential nutrients? By "eating on the wild side": choosing present-day fruits and vegetables that come closest to the nutritional bounty of their wild ancestors. Robinson explains that many of these jewels of nutrition are hiding in plain sight in our supermarkets, farmers markets, and U-pick orchards. Eating on the Wild Side provides the world's most extensive list of these superlative varieties. Drawing on her five-year review of recently published studies, Robinson introduces simple, scientifically proven methods of storage and preparation that will preserve and even enhance their health benefits:

  • Squeezing fresh garlic in a garlic press and then setting it aside for 10 minutes before cooking it will increase your defenses against cancer and cardiovascular disease.
  • Baking potatoes, refrigerating them overnight, and then reheating them before serving will keep them from spiking your blood sugar.
  • Cooking most berries makes them more nutritious.
  • Shredding lettuce the day before you eat it will double its antioxidant activity.
  • Store watermelon on the kitchen counter for up to a week and it will develop more lycopene.
  • Eat broccoli the day you buy it to preserve its natural sugars and cancer-fighting compounds.

The information in this surprising, important and meticulously researched book will prove invaluable for omnivores, vegetarians and vegans alike, and forever change the way we think about food.
