Are we heading towards a quarantine summer?

Maybe, maybe not. But either way, it is always great to continue to nourish our minds with good books, am I right? Personally, even though I love the tangible element of a book in my hands, I actually read better with an audiobook at 1.5x while riding my bike or walking along the boardwalk, with a mask of course!

Here is my list for your summer mindscape:

  1. Looking for a good starter book to jump into a plant-based lifestyle, which is actually evidence-based? Check out The Vegan Starter Kit by Neal Barnard, MD, FACC
  2. For my wellness warriors, looking for the bible of evidence-based nutritional information? For my healthcare professionals, tired of not having enough nutritional education in medical school? Check out How Not To Die by Michael Greger, MD, FACLM
  3. Want to survive this current and the next pandemic? Check out How To Survive A Pandemic by Michael Greger, MD, FACLM
