From renowned cardiac surgeon and acclaimed author Dr. Steven R. Gundry, the companion cookbook to New York Times bestselling The Plant Paradox , offering 100 easy-to-follow recipes and four-color photos. In the New York Times bestseller The Plant Paradox , Dr. Steven Gundry introduced readers to the hidden toxins lurking in seemingly healthy foods like tomatoes, zucchini, quinoa, and brown rice: a class of plant-based proteins called lectins. Many people are familiar with one of the most predominant lectins—a substance called gluten, which is found in wheat and other grains. But while cutting out the bread and going gluten-free is relatively straightforward, going lectin-free is no small task. Now, in The Plant Paradox Cookbook , Dr. Gundry breaks down lectin-free eating step by step and shares one hundred of his favorite healthy recipes. Dr. Gundry will offer an overview of his Plant Paradox program and show readers how to overhaul their pantries and shopping lists to make delicious, simple, seasonal, lectin-free meals. He´ll also share his hacks for making high-lectin foods safe to eat, including methods like pressure-cooking grains and peeling and deseeding tomatoes. With a quick-start program designed to boost weight loss and recipes for smoothies, breakfasts, main meals, snacks, and desserts, The Plant Paradox Cookbook will show readers of The Plant Paradox —and more—how delicious it can be to eat lectin-free.

Choice of materials and processing methods for the composites are made on the basis of the surveyed factors. Some of the selected fibres are examined for their microstructural properties and their interactions with waste plastics in the composites. The composites are made and tested using fibres from Agave americana leaves/flax stalks and straw from corn/wheat stalks in waste Low Density Polyethyelene (bale wrap) and High Density Polyethylene (shopping bags). The environmental benefits of NFCs are demonstrated using a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA).
