Okay, I found a Chopped Greek Rainbow Salad that sounded like food to me -- edamame, bell pepper, chickpeas, feta, with a lemon and oil dressing. But "Not Your Average BLT" (tempeh, avocado oil mayonnaise, maple syrup, and coconut aminos) or Power Protein Smoothie (cauliflower, zucchini, chocolate protein powder, banana) , Lentil Tahiini Burgers, Green Goddess Tofu Bowls, Healthy Breakfast Sandwich (avocado, tomato, bean sprouts), not! Even if I could conceive of some of the combinations in this book, I'd have to go to the grocery store at least every three days to have fresh ingredients on hand. In this Time of COVID, I go for groceries once every three months. If you're already fond of cauliflower rice and liquid aminos, then the recipes, meal plans, and exercise plans in this book will serve you well and you'll take the trouble to prepare the meals. In 30 days you'll be a better you. It's a well-done book, it just isn't for me.
This book is comprehensive but not for me. I'm not interested in adopting a diet that calls for coconut oils, aminos, collagen and other items that aren't part of a normal diet. I'm looking for a diet that uses real every day foods and herbs. On the plus side it does include exercises which is a key component to losing weight and being healthy.
This review is for the The 30-Day Healthy Weight Loss Plan and Cookbook: 100 Easy Recipes and Workouts for a Balanced Life Paperback – December 15, 2020
Mabee its just me, but most of the main courses of this book seem more like side dishes. If you are a vegetarian you will find some good choices here. I just cant do that many veggies for a main. This is not your ordinary book, so that is good.
This is a decent cookbook but I found many of the recipes to be a bit complex and ingredient heavy. Going through, I marked maybe 10 or 12 that I would like to try. In my opinion, that does not make it worth the price of purchasing this book. I will definitely be trying those few recipes but would not consider purchasing this book again. If you do not mind complex recipes with lots of ingredients you will probably like this book.
3.0 out of 5 starsActually a Great Book to Help You Lose Weight

I started this and while I didn't do all the recipes, I was able to lose 5lbs in 2 weeks following this book. Being written by a registered dietician made me decide to get this. I did give 3 stars though because I wish recipes were a bit simpler and you didn't need as many ingredients as most require. Besides that, it's an ok book, and I'll continue using it to see how much more I can lose.
I got this in hopes of tasty, healthy foods and this didn't have any great recipes. I think I have found better online than in this cookbook. I found a handful of recipes that looked good and I tried a few. Overall it's nothing spectacular.
