Here is what frustrates me:
- The recipes do not match up well to the Reboot meal plan. One of the first recipes is for the Vegan Nutrient Detox Broth... she recommends making a big batch before starting the Reboot. The FIRST ingredient is potatoes - a nightshade - which you are to avoid for the first three weeks. The breakfast on the 7th day is the Power Parfait with (optional) granola. The granola is made up of oats and nuts - two things that are to be avoided for the first two weeks. Why even list granola on week one if there aren't supposed to be nuts/grains consumed? The first lunch recipe on week 1 (The Mediterranean Board) has SIX items that should not be included in week 1. There are so many you have to remove, there isn't much left... Luckily, I have enough experience in a kitchen to realize this oversight and substitute. If I were a newbie to this lifestyle/style of detox this would be very confusing and frustrating. Unfortunately, the main reason I wanted this book (the menu plan for the first weeks of reboot) is not living up to my expectations.
- There are recipe names listed that aren't in the book (at least the Kindle version). For example, a Tuscan Kale Salad is listed for the Mediterranean Board, but isn't in the book that I can find.
- This menu plan requires A TON of cooking. And this is coming from a stay at home mom that currently cooks 90% of what my family eats... so I'm not shy of cooking. For example, the Mediterranean Board on week one LUNCH has you making SIX different recipes (hummus, kale salad, pasta salad, roasted cherry tomatoes, roasted potatoes + veggies, pesto).
- The menu plan and recipe charts are TINY on a Kindle. They are super hard to see, and if I were to do this over again, I would buy the actual book.
- In order to fully use this book, you will need to flip back and forth to various charts and plans and recipes. Again, this is challenging on a Kindle. Buy the physical book if you want to actually implement this plan without throwing your Kindle across the room (SOS-inducing, anyone?).
I really love Dr. Romm and thoroughly enjoyed her interview on The Good Life Project, which inspired me to purchase this book. I also think this book has great information, but don't expect to use the meal plans and recipes as written for the first few weeks, which is when people most likely need the most ideas/ support.
Women in American society seem to be suffering an ever-increasing myriad of distressing symptoms that are markedly disrupting their lives. These symptoms range from exhaustion to difficulty controlling weight, from errant hormones to clouded comprehension and concentration, from moods askew to impaired immunity to aching, sub-functioning bodies.
Too often, once a woman, desperate to “feel like herself again,” at last seeks solutions to the problems plaguing her, finds herself shipped off to various and sundry specialists, each focused more on treating her symptoms than on uncovering and attending to their source.
Aviva Romm, a Yale-educated family physician, midwife, and herbalist, has taken a look at the list of issues assailing today’s woman with fresh eyes, has recognized their origins to be a simple, symbiotic system gone awry, and has recommended a revitalizing plan of action substantiated by science and validated by the steadily improving health of her clients here in her newest book.
If you suffer from any semblance of the ailments listed above, why don’t you invest in yourself and take a little time to explore Aviva’s book and recommendations? It’s filled with comprehensive research, interesting, real-life examples, and easy to follow instructions.
Highly recommend. I've also read Isabella Wentz' and Mary Shamon (sp), Marcelle Pick, Natasha Turner, and Sara Gottfried. I would pick this one as the go-to if you can only afford one book.
I do not have any medical problems besides feeling overwhelmed with work-life balance and stress. Aviva cuts out common food health triggers and puts forward practical things you can do during your day to live a balanced life in her 'Inspired day' outline. The biggest gains I've seen so far (on week 2) is feeling full and energized throughout the day (eating more regularly and taking short breaks every 1.5 hrs), and going to bed tired and waking up energized (not drinking caffeine and not eating 3 hrs before bed). I am able to deal more calmly when stress triggers come up at work (big win!).
The recipes are easy and do not require fancy ingredients or cooking techniques. Apparently there was an editorial mishap that placed the recipes with nuts and nightshades in the first week but it is really only a problem if you have joint issues. I choose two of the lunch/dinner recipes to make a large batch of to eat throughout the week and bought pre-made organic items when I had the chance (falafel, hummus, salsa, etc).
The book was technical and fact based enough to get some deeper meaning without my head spinning in numbers and references. Overall I loved every minute of it and would highly recommend to anyone searching to live a optimal well-balanced life in mind and body.
The part that I wound up just ignoring was the suggested meal plans. They just didn't sync with what I thought I was supposed to eat or not eat. I used some of the recipes as guidelines, but found it confusing when I was eliminating nightshades, fruit, nuts and then recipes included these things. I wanted something more definitive.
I found the list of herbal supplements thorough and helpful.
Overall, I think it's informative and useful information.
