Joyful Delicious Vegan | Sherra Aguirre

The Simplest and Most Effective Way to Prevent and Even Reverse the Nation’s #1 Killer

Using Nutritional Medicine to Beat Chronic Disease, Despite Family History

Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease

By Sherra Aguirre

Joyful, Delicious, Vegan: Life Without Heart Disease will empower readers with the simplest, most effective way to prevent or even reverse the nation’s number one killer, heart disease, despite family history. Enjoying good health naturally at any age starts in the kitchen by changing what and how we eat. Although this book is important for anyone who wants to enjoy a healthy, disease-free life, it targets women, especially African American women. Women typically have the greatest influence over what goes on our tables, and the healthcare choices of those close to us, which puts them on the front lines of the fight against heart disease and other diet-related illnesses. By nurturing our bodies with delicious whole foods and mindful health practices, we set in motion a chain of positive events – physical, mental, emotional and spiritual – that are healing and transformational.

Joyful, Delicious, Vegan is packed with nutritional medicine, research and personal stories which demonstrate the effectiveness of a plant-based diet in restoring health. Readers will be guided through simple steps to increase vitality and reduce dependence on medications by learning to prepare and enjoy flavorful plant-strong, anti-inflammatory foods, based on the recommendations of two world-renowned cardiologists, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn and Dr. Dean Ornish, who have demonstrated positive patient results for many years. Sherra shares her personal story of reversing her own hypertension and heart disease with tips and over 25 delicious recipes to ensure no one has to choose between great food and great health.

"Joyful, Delicious, Vegan is an inspiring guide to achieving the very best of health. The power of foods is surprising--even life-changing--and this immensely practical book will guide you to putting it to use." --Neal D. Barnard, MD, FACC, adjunct professor at George Washington University School of Medicine and president of Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

About the Author

SHERRA AGUIRRE is an articulate health enthusiast, environmentalist and food security activist. She 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 sharing 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 her 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.

One of Aguirre’s main goals with her new book is to make the change to a healthier diet and lifestyle more accessible, particularly to African Americans and other communities who are at high risk for diabetes and heart disease.

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