Looking for a plant based cook book but was disappointed with this as hadn't realised that it was American (my fault for not researching) so all the measurements are in 'cups' and tend to be for quite large numbers (I am cooking for one). Got fed up with trying to figure out the reductions so it has ended up in the charity shop. Bought the Bosh cookbook as a replacement which was a lot easier to follow.
Here's the book: Eat a whole food, plant based breakfast the first week; add a whole food, plant based lunch in week two; and a whole food, plant based dinner in week three. Keep that up and there you are. The recipes are listed in the back half and you pick the ones you want for meals and snacks. If you're completely new to the idea of plant based eating, have no idea of how it works or where to start, then this is the book for you. If you already have the cookbook, or if you have another good book of recipes then you can just use what you've got and watch some of the big names on YouTube to answer questions about nutrition: i.e., Dr. McDougall, Dr. Fuhrman, Dr. T. Colin Campbell, Dr. Esselstyn etc., and save the price of this book. It is loaded with inspirational quotes to motivate newbies and the recipes are simple and easy to use: But as I said, if you've got any experience in cooking this way and/or if you're already up on the nutrition and have your own reasons for eating this way, then this book is going to simply be a repetition of what you already know.
The book doesn't get into very much detail about why food other than Whole-foods/plant based shouldn't be eaten. It explains how you will get what you need from this eating style but I was hoping for some medical background on why you wouldn't eat meat for example.
The recipes though are have many ingredients, some being special and the can be complicated. I was hoping for some more streamlined recipes.
