There is a lot of information in Gorgeously green Diet about healthy eating and it is useful for those people used to eating processed food. Uliano, who wrote Gorgeously Green and appeared on Oprah, writes: "Unless the food you eat is minimally processed and packaged, unless its Gorgeously Green--it is likely to be lacking in vitamins and loaded with toxins that could inhibit metabolism and lead to obesity."

Uliano discusses how making even small changes in ones diet can help impact the health of the planet. She advocates "moderation," and tells the reader that she is a flexatarian.

She offers three diets in different shades of green--light, medium and dark. Each diet covers a week's worth of menus.

There is a section on composting and gardening.

According to Uliano, a 2007 Cornell University study showed that an all vegan diet had more effect on the planet than a diet containing a daily 2 ounce serving of meat.

The book outlines how to select the best types of food--grass fed beef, vs. feedlot, for example. This is very useful for newbies and she covers virtually all choices.

Suggestions are made on how to pick food at a restaurant and include a variety of places.

She suggests what to get rid of in the pantry and what to stock.

There was a chapter on cooking the basics likes stocks tomato sauce--all perfect for beginners.

There is a section on fitness, beauty & health and what vitamins to take.

One chapter was on inviting your dream guests for dinner--I found it bizarre--and her list included Shakespeare, Jesus, Julia Roberts and Oprah. Somehow, can't see that group together...

There is a nice sized section of recipes.

I liked this book for the most part, but was surprised at a couple things. She says seitan is a fermented soy product, when in fact it has no soy in at all (it's made of Vital Wheat Gluten, which is why seitan is nicknamed Wheat Meat). Also, in her weekly meal plans she has nonvegan items in the "Vegan Option." I know many nonvegans consider honey vegan because some vegans do use it, so that wasn't terribly surprising, but she also says to use whey protein powder. It just made me question her knowledge of the food she's eating and writing about. Didn't her editors catch that?

I hate to say it but...I grabbed this book from the library. :-) BUT, I'll NOW be buying it! For so long, I've been looking for easy recipes and a book with a simple shopping list to just have an easy, healthy diet. VOILA!!! Here it is! I'm very impressed with this book. I've not even read the whole thing and I'm totally blown away by its ease of use and wealth of information.

There is ONE thing I'd like to comment on, though...it suggests canola oil as an oil option. I just want to make people aware that a significant amount of consumers have allergic reactions/sickness related to canola oil (and they don't even realize it) - so do your research before using it!!! Just google "canola oil side effects" or "dangers" and you'll find an entire list. Canola oil is a genetically modified rapeseed oil.

"Claims of several human health side effects from canola oil are loss of vision, disruption of the central nervous system, respiratory illness, anemia, constipation, increased incidence of heart disease and cancer, low birth weights in infants and irritability...Rapeseed oil used in China for stir-frying produced highly carcinogenic smoke. According to The Wall Street Journal on June 7, 1995, an increased incidence of lung cancer occurs in people who breathe the smoke...From 1986 until 1991, rapeseed was used in animal feed in England and Europe; its use was halted in 1991 when studies indicated health problems directly related to it. Problems subsided when it was no longer used."

For instance, here's some info on eHow:

[...]

Otherwise, this book is one of my favorites and I really feel is the only cookbook I need. As an amateur culinary-extraordinaire who is headed for minimalism, I'm actually going to sell all the others on Amazon!

Thanks so much for this book Ms. Uliano. You rock!

I like this book because it is realistic for someone who doesn't have an entire day to devote to cooking. Recipes are simple and clear.

I enjoy reading how she talks about food as REAL food. Fat is not the culprit, nor is sugar used in small quantities, it's just overeating and all the fake food you can find in the grocery store. Eat real food, and in good amounts, and you'll not only help yourself lose weight, but also help the environment. Oh, and don't think of "diet" as a fad you use just to lose weight, but "diet" as a way of eating, a way of life.

It is enlightening, but basic and has some wonderful un-intimidating ways to do things. I have nothing negative to say about this book.
