Michael J. Fox’s wife Tracy Pollan was his co-star in the 80’s sitcom “Family Ties.” Recently she collaborated with her mother and sisters to write a cookbook centered around a flexitarian diet.
A flexitarian diet is primarily a vegetarian diet but permits an individual to eat meat occasionally.
The collection of the recipes once could use for a flexitarian diet were written from Tracy, mother Corky, and sisters Dana and Lori.
“Mostly Plants” being sent out to stores on April 16, 2019, from Harper Wave, is an ode to the mantra of moderation chanted by their brother Michael Pollan who wrote the book. He says “Eat good food, do not overeat, and eat primarily plants.”
For Pollan, the health benefits coming from a flexitarian diet is the reason why she started incorporating it into her families lives. The health benefits can include a lowered risk for heart disease, cancer, and diabetes. Pollan was particularly concerned about the illness’ her Fox was inflicted with.
Fox has been very open about his battle with Parkinson’s disease, and he eats this way along with their four children.
Pollan said that she researched different types of diets and realized a flexitarian diet is good for anybody; in particular, those who have health issues.
Fox will join Pollan mother and sister on April 17 to discuss her book at the 92nd Street Y in New York.
She says “It is an intrinsically healthy and better way to eat and live.”
