I agree with others that the photos are AWFUL and fail to give any idea of what the finished dishes are supposed to look like. Why would I want to make any of this food when it looks so awful. Full color photos, please!
But the worst part is that the shopping list does not includes all of the needed ingredients for each day's menu and the recipes are so complicated and there are no instructions on how to prepare each day's meal or ahead of time.
Today I spent about 4 hours in my local Whole Foods trying to buy the ingredients for the first week; I spent over $200 and still did not get everything on the list. Then when I got home and started to get organzied for the week ahead, I found that each recipe on Day One had ingredients that had not been included on the shopping list. For example, Day One breakfast of Cocoa Crispies calls for unsweetened almond milk, stevia, erythitol and puffed brown rice which were not on the shopping list. And Wrap with Shrimp & Tomato Salad calls for psylium husk flakes and egg white powder which were not onl the shopping list. The Asian Pork Buns require tamari, monk fruit crystals and fresh ginger -- none of which were on the shopping list.
On the postive side: I do like that the recipes are each for just one person!
I have not yet been able to try any of the recipes because I do not have or cannot find the ingredients required. But each of them is so full of odd ingredients that I am not sure I will ever be able to try them out.
Definite thumbs down.
Once again, Rocco has successfully managed to combine healthy and delicious. However, this book has an added bonus. Rocco incorporated the Fitbit and outlines how many calories are burned while preparing his recipes. I have to admit, I was a little skeptical when seeing some of the numbers, but tried a few recipes and it is very accurate! A few of his dishes, such as the Banana Yogurt, actually contain fewer calories than what you burn making it.
Overall, Cook Your Butt Off is a great guide to eating healthy. It is not one of those cookbooks with beautiful pictures which many of us keep on the coffee table. Instead, it is more educational and packed with healthy and (from what I have tried) delicious recipes.
