This review is from: Super Natural Cooking: Five Delicious Ways to Incorporate Whole and Natural Foods into Your Cooking (Paperback)
Well, my title sums it up basically. First off, to give fair warning, I am not at all a vegetarian, though I do eat a "whole foods" diet, but one inspired by say, Alice Waters, or Sally Fallon, or Julia Child. I appreciate that the author does not promote low-fat vegetarian fare, as I don't believe the saturated fat hype, but was dissapointed by how sugar laden many of Heidi's recipes were. The photography is beautiful, stunning pictures make each page worth a peek even if you're not inclined to try the recipes. I wish that the recipes, in general, had less starches, sugar, and gluten-grains.

Thank you for the note about many recipes being 'sugar laden'. As far as I'm concerned, sugar is toxic. I will look elsewhere.

when you mean sugar, are you talking about refined? or natural sugar from fruits/veggies?
