There is no imagination in this book. I feel that the author just doesn't like food. She makes no effort to impart any taste what so ever in the recipes. Plus the approach uses lots of processed foods; things like egg substitutes, low-fat everything, and canned goods galore. I personally feel that it's possible to eat a fairly low fat diet, avoid processed foods (which I think are just as harmful as the fat), and actually have something that tastes good.
Plus the author must have taken to heart that you can't have any meat other than chicken or fish. Now I know that many cuts of beef can be high in fat, but an occasional, well seasoned, portion controlled, lean piece of beef isn't going to totally ruin your diet. But not so here. If it's not chicken, poultry, or fish; you can forget it. (And whatever happened to pork, the other white meat?)
Shop around, there are better low-fat books to be had.
My star ratings:
One star - couldn't finish the book
Two stars - read the book, but did a lot of skipping or scanning. Wouldn't add the book to my permanent collection or search out other books by the author
Three stars - enjoyable read. Wouldn't add the book to my permanent collection. Would judge other books by the author individually.
Four stars - Liked the book. Would keep the book or would look for others by the same author.
Five stars - One of my all time favorites. Will get a copy in hardback to keep and will actively search out others by the same author.
