I have decided to never diet again but adapt the lifestyle of "eating clean". I bought this book along with another, more popular book on the market as I couldn't decide between the two. I have to say.. I love the book. A lot of diet books just go on and on and take forever getting to the point of how to diet. there are some nice recipes like the cranberry and lemon muffins, and the red pepper and artichoke frittata that I tried and I can't wait to try others!
I've been exploring vegetarian recipes for some time now, I notice I feel better when I eat a vegetarian diet. I found this book to be great. The recipes are easy to follow, and the ingredients are great. The author discusses the health benefits of the vegetarian diet, plus gives a lot of great tips for weight loss success.The author says he wrote the book to teach everything there is to know about being a vegetarian, and I think he's done a good job of that. He also explains where meat might be hidden in some foods, something I had not considered before, being new to this. He also explained the different types of vegetarians. Since I raise my own chickens strictly for their eggs, I was interested to know that what I am trying to become is a Lacto-ovo-vegetarian.The book is well written, formatted, and it is very clear and concise. There are pictures included with the recipes, which I appreciate in a recipe book as well. Overall, it is definitely a book you should have if you are vegetarian, ant to go on a vegetarian diet or are just interested in vegetarian recipes.I highly recommend.
This book is a decent introduction to vegetarian eating and I like that it stresses whole foods and not processed meat substitutes.The recipes look simple, easy to make, and flavorful. They also use basic ingredients that you can find at any grocery store, so you won't be wasting a ton of money at specialty grocery stores looking for some obscure ingredient you'll only use once.It only gets three stars for several reasons. Primarily, it offers only a rather simplistic description of vegetarian nutrition. I was hoping this would be more in-depth - explaining how to get all of the basic nutrients and a proper balance of fats, carbs, and protein and offering daily meal plans from the recipes involved to ensure that we do. Instead of weight loss success tips being basic statements like "willpower!" and "eat at a table on a plate!" why not give us the tools to know what we're actually eating?The parts of this book that aren't recipes read like hastily written filler intended to add bulk, but no substance.Furthermore, there are a few typos and glaring grammatical errors that oftentimes left me wondering what grade level was the target (less instead of fewer, particular instead of particularly, etc.)As someone who is always on the lookout for new, healthy, easy, tasty recipes, I'm sure I will find this book very useful. I'm already a vegetarian, so I will be adding these recipes to my list of new things to make.However, if you are looking for an excellent guide on how to eat healthfully and understand the hows and whys of what makes food good for you and what doesn't, I recommend Joel Fuhrman's Eat to Live. Although Furhman doesn't advocate a 100% vegetarian diet (he says very small amounts of salmon are okay), he explains the ins and outs of healthy nutrition using peer-reviewed studies to back up his points. It's also easy to ignore the fish and adapt his ideas into a vegetarian or vegan diet.
Vine's book explains the benefits of a vegetarian dietwhich include weight loss, reduced cancer, betterglucose control and reduced coronary heart disease.The Preventive Medicine Research Institute conducteda study which showed that a vegan diet can cut up to24 pounds or more a year and extend life by 13 years.This is true in the reviewer's own experience with food.The book explains how various colored vegetables helpwith health. For instance, yellow veggies contain carotenoidswhile green veggies contain chlorophyl. The author makes clearthat vegetarians should eat whole grains like oats daily.The book has plenty of recipes to show how to eat daily.For instance, the author explains recipes for tofu sandwiches,scrambled egg burritos and grapefruit cran mixed salad amongothers. Exercise is another important part of weight reduction,as well as portion control.In the reviewer's experience, the Vita-mix 5000 Total NutritionCenter Series provides an easy way to process veggies like celery,radish and carrots into a paste which is similar to a pudding. Theprocessor also has a variable heating element for soups.Overall, Vine's book would be very helpful for a wide constituencyof vegans and dieters seeking to reduce or eliminate meatconsumption in favor of a vegan diet.
So finding this book couldn't have come at a better time. Seriously. My husband and I have a bet going about self control and the first one who gets down to their goal weight wins the prize. We both agreed during the competition that we would go vegetarian. This meant that we needed a set of recipes that would help us ease into becoming vegetarians while helping us shed some poundage. When I came across Vegetarian Weight Loss Diet by Jonathan Vine I crossed my fingers, bit the bullet, and bought the book. As it turns out it was exactly what I wanted. It's filled to the brim with tasty vegetarian recipes that are easy to make, delicious, low cal, and nutritious.A few of my favorite things to make from the book:Red pepper and Artichoke FrittataWaffles with Cherry SauceEggplant and Portobello Sandwich (I like to lightly toast the bread too)Spicy Bean burgersBlack Bean Croquettes
