More and more research studies are finding that a plant-based diet extends human longevity more than anything else. Studies by T. Colin Campbell, PhD (Cornell) and Caldwell Esselstyn, MD (Cleveland Clinic) are just a few recent examples. Yesterday on Yahoo health news, a new study finds that a 50% plant-based diet reduces the risk of stroke by 50%. To understand the decades of propaganda that a high-protein diet is healthy, follow the money. Here, for example, is a 2009 cookbook that goes where no cookbook has ever gone before, into the Vegan Soul Kitchen. When I found out about it, I immediately bought 4 copies, one for myself, 2 for friends who run holistic soul restaurants, and 1 for my local food co-op grocery, whose clientele is blessedly diverse. ... I myself am Caucasian, but I write for natural food journals with an emphasis on outreach to all people. And the link is:

And here's a link to Bryant Terry's website:
I definitely not a vegan, but much of my diet is vegetarian (not to say that I am a vegetarian), and I feel better for it. When I do eat meat, I look for lean cuts of fish and poultry, and I avoid dishes that either use heavily processed meats, or process the hell out of the meat before it gets to the table.
Just for African-American women is a 2010 cookbook:
