We can all learn how to enjoy good health naturally at any age--and it starts in our kitchens by changing how we eat. In Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease, Sherra Aguirre equips readers with the simplest, most effective way to prevent or reverse heart disease, our number one killer here in the US--especially for African American women, who are on the front lines of the fight against heart disease, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses. 

In this empowering guide to healthy eating, Aguirre shares her own story of reversing hypertension and other heart disease symptoms, despite a long family history; she presents current knowledge about the effectiveness of a plant-based diet in reversing disease; and she offers up recommendations from two world-renowned cardiologists who have demonstrated results with patients for many years. Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease guides readers in building a simple food plan around their particular needs with delicious anti-inflammatory foods and provides support for developing the habit of mindful eating. Aguirre explores ways in which choosing a vegan diet and eating consciously are compassionate acts that can positively impact many areas of our lives--and includes tips to help readers sustain results. Full of tips for success based on Aguirre's personal experience and the experience of others, Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease is a source of inspiration, encouragement, and staying power for all readers.

Sherra Aguirre, author of Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life  Without Heart Disease, founded and led a successful business for three  decades, winning national awards for entrepreneurship, innovation, and  service excellence. She sold the company in 2016 to focus on her passion  for healthy diet and lifestyle.  

Aguirre describes herself as high energy, in better overall health, and in  many ways more fit than in her thirties or forties. She has practiced  meditation and yoga daily for more than twenty-five years, and for many  years has researched and read extensively about diet and lifestyle as the  most important factors for achieving and maintaining good health. By  adopting a whole plant-based diet, she improved overall heart health and  eliminated symptoms of hypertension despite a significant family history  of heart attack, stroke, and high blood pressure. She is passionate about  empowering others to maintain vibrancy and good health throughout their  lifetimes.  

As a health enthusiast, environmentalist, and food justice advocate,  Aguirre writes about the healing qualities of compassion, simplicity and gratitude. She draws attention to the ripple effect vegan eating can have  on individuals, families, and communities. Sherra is married with two  daughters—Tembi Locke, actor, speaker, screenwriter, and New York  Times best-selling author; and Attica Locke, multiple award-winning  novelist, New York Times best-selling author and screen writer/producer.
