Pamela Anderson is truly an all-around icon and has authored many books over the years. She’s recently announced her upcoming cookbook, which is so authentically her. The cookbook, “I Love You: Recipes from the Heart”, is a beautiful collection of plant-based family recipes and entertaining ideas. 

Pamela Anderson’s Cookbook: Plant-Based Recipes From The Heart

What began as a humble box of recipe cards labeled ”I LOVE YOU” intended as a housewarming gift for both her sons Brandon Thomas and Dylan Jagger soon evolved into a cookbook, celebrating family, nature, and joyful cooking.

A lifestyle cookbook; nothing fancy, just updated, plant-based family recipes; and entertaining with a humble kind of joy. It celebrates the magic of scenic settings where nature always has a proud seat at the table.

The cookbook will feature over 80 recipes that nourish the heart and soul and celebrate Pamela’s vegan lifestyle and diet. Additionally, readers can expect illustrations done by Pamela and the inclusion of her additional interests such as sustainable design and gardening.

Why go plant-based?

Pamela Anderson’s love for plant-based cooking extends beyond her upcoming cookbook as she hosts a culinary show titled ”Pamela’s Cooking with Love” on Food Network Canada. Here, she regularly collaborates with popular chefs to create tasty plant-based dishes for family and friends.

With Anderson’s strong love for plant-based eating, one has to wonder what makes this dietary plan so special. Well, focusing on sticking to a plant-based diet allows for countless benefits.

1. Reduced body weight

A plant-based diet can contribute to weight loss, for a handful of reasons. For one, plant-based foods are typically lower in calories compared to animal products. Also, plant-based diets offer a surplus of fiber, which makes you feel full after a meal, therefore reducing the likelihood of overeating.

Lastly, a plant-based diet encourages the consumption of minimally processed foods and in turn phases out highly processed foods like sugary beverages and fatty foods, which will result in naturally reducing your calorie intake.

2. Improved blood pressure

Published evidence has linked plant-based diets with reduced blood pressure and overall better health outcomes (namely, on the cardiovascular system). This is because of the fiber found in plant-based diets, which can improve the health of your blood vessels and heart. In addition, plant-based diets are rich in minerals and vitamins, which balances out the amount of sodium in your body which, in turn, decreases the tension in your blood vessels.

3. Reduced risk of chronic diseases (heart disease, cancer, and diabetes)

A study from the Journal of the American Heart Association discovered that middle-aged adults who consumed mainly plant-based foods and minimal animal products had a decreased risk for heart disease.

Also, per the American Health Association, consuming less meat can reduce your risk of:

  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Certain cancers
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Obesity

4. Combating climate change

A report from Stanford University suggested that if everyone in the U.S. consumed no meat or cheese for just one day out of the week, it would have the same environmental impact as taking 7.6 million cars off the road.

Separate research has also discovered that the environmental footprint of a vegan is around one-third lower than an individual who consumes meat.

“Our dietary choices have a big impact on the planet. Cutting down the amount of meat and dairy in your diet can make a big difference to your dietary footprint,” Peter Scarborough, lead author and professor of population health at Oxford.

Live like Pamela

In addition to following a plant-based diet, here are a few lifestyle habits to adopt from the Baywatch actress.

Opt for low-impact exercise like walking

You may be surprised to hear that Pamela doesn’t work out much.

Speaking to People, the actress revealed: “I walk on the beach, and I love the feeling after a long walk or a walk through a museum.”

According to Harvard Health, you shouldn’t underestimate the effects of brisk walking, especially one that takes an hour out of your day. Harvard researchers noted that among the study participants who walked briskly for about an hour a day, the effects of obesity-causing genes were cut in half.

Don’t forget about flexibility!

The 56-year-old actress expressed that she makes having flexibility a priority, sharing that she’s always stretched and moved her body with resistance.

Flexibility is vital in maintaining the ability to move and complete daily tasks with ease, and enjoy a pain-free life.

Intermittent fasting

According to Vogue, Anderson does intermittent fasting, with an eating plan that works well for her and her body. She expressed that she only eats between 10 am and 6 pm. This plan leaves her with more energy, and improved feelings for herself and her body.

Not only does intermittent fasting result in an increased energy level, but other benefits include increased weight loss, improved blood sugar control, and extended longevity.
