When you make the recipes, especially the soups, they yield a very large portion. I Make two or three soups a week, freeze them in containers and take them to work with me. I find I do not waste as much if I freeze everthing in portion size containers.
If you purchase this cookbook, a blender is necessary and a food processor is even better. The recipes are easy, but everything is made with fresh vegetables and there is A LOT of peeling and chopping..(another reason I cook on the weekends and freeze everything)
If you are American, the cookbook lists all ingrediants in grams and liters, I printed a conversion chart on the internet, so I know how many ounces are in an item. The oven temperatures are listed in celsius, but you can also print a conversion list to Farenheit. Last but not least, The British call eggplants an aubergine and a zucchine a courgette. You may have to do a search on the name of a food if it is unfamiliar to you, I laughed pretty hard when I did a search for courgettes and Zucchini was listed.
This cookbook is my refernce now, I have learned to combine foods I would never dream of combining and since I began eating her recipes at most of my meals (Not all! I still love steak once in a while) I can honestly say I feel better than I have in years... The main reason I will continue preparing her recipes is because of the huge impact it has made to my health and well being.
recipes. It is a well written and interesting cookbook. Try it!
I don't live in the middle of nowhere, but finding millet (used in many recipes) is almost impossible. Mung beans? Nope. Tahini sauce? Not at my supermarket. I use the overall idea of healthy eating espoused by the cookbook and make many substitutions. Unfortunately, that sort of defeats the purpose of the cookbook. I can't follow the recipes exactly.
To get an overall idea of what this cookbook contains, and before you buy, go to the UK's Channel 4 website for You Are What You Eat (just do a Google search) and take a look at the sample recipes. There are lots of them; you might be better off trying the recipes at the site before getting the cookbook.
