The front reference section, listing most of the whole grains, is very informative and helpful, and is the primary reason I bought the book. It's handy to know how much raw brown rice you need to cook to get 4 cups of cooked rice.
I'm going to try some more of the recipes, probably with about half the meat called for.
This is not a vegetarian cook book. This is not always a low-calorie cookbook. Because this is cooking with whole grains, the cooking time is usually not going to be quick either so this is more for weekend cooking. I like that there is an introduction to most of the whole grains in the front that includes interesting history and tidbits along with nutritional information. There is also a section in the back aimed at diabetics. Occasionally, there are some mistakes. In one recipe, one of the ingredients is lemon juice but lemon juice is never mentioned in the recipe! Overall, I like the recipes and many are definitely "make agains"
Compared to my top favorite book on whole grains Whole Grains Every Day, Every Way, it's less extensive when it comes to amount of pages dedicated to each grain. But on the other hand, it has nutritional profile for each grain and every recipe and that information comes quite handy.
Also, I really really like the recipes. There are notes if the recipe is Vegetarian or Vegan Friendly. Since I bought the book (about 2 weeks ago) I made about 5+ meals - all of them got rave reviews from my hubby (Zucchini Lemon Loaf w/Cranberries and Turkey Cutlets in Gingery Lemon Gravy w/Cranberry Rice were the biggest hits so far).
All in all, this book is one of my go-to's whole grain cookbooks.
