I only have two criticisms: the first and biggest is that some of the recipes are rather bland, but easy to tweak if you're a decent to proficient cook.....and without sacrificing the healthy aspect of the meal. For example, the cauliflower soup is flavorless if you follow the book's instructions. Instead, I roasted my cauliflower for lots of flavor, and roasted some garlic cloves with it as well, and then puréed that with stock in the proportions listed in the book. SO much tastier, without any ingredient tweaks (well, half a tablespoon of olive oil). If you're not the type of person who can improvise recipes and you don't really know your way around a kitchen, you will probably find some of these recipes underwhelming.
My second criticism is that some of the serving sizes seem crazy small. I have easy access to local, organic, big produce and was kind of taken aback by how small some portions were, like the Brussels sprouts salad. I adjusted the portions accordingly, but kind of annoying if you're tracking calories and relying on the book's calorie info to reflect what you'll actually ingest.
Overall, I like this book and have no regrets about buying it! It's great to have an arsenal of healthy, creative recipes for this action plan and beyond!
On the recipes & guidance: wow. So much inspiration can be drawn from any of these recipes, especially all of the poached fish & baked recipes in parchment paper ones. There aren't any recipes with red meat, making this book ideal for vegetarians & pescetarians alike! There are a few recipes using chicken though, so never fear! I'm a huge loyal fan of cookbooks from MSL, they're simply some of the most phenomenal cookbooks out there. They list nutritional content & provide very helpful & interesting facts about the ingredients you're using.
You don't need to spend a fortune at a juice bar to detox. Buy this book, make a list of groceries you need, & create a simple meal plan for yourself to follow. Too much time wasted & thinking involved? Well sweetheart, this is your health, so you better make damn sure that you take it seriously. If Americans took extra time to think about what they should make for dinner instead of what they should buy for dinner, our obesity pandemic probably wouldn't be so bad.
Highly recommend this book to any & all who are interested in clean eating. A lot of these recipes may ask for the usage of honey. If you're vegan, you can always just substitute it with stevia or agave syrup or maple syrup. Any & all proteins can be substituted for more vegetables or a plant based one. I'm obsessed with this cookbook & I think it's worth every penny.
However, I found that I was flipping through the pages and encountering recipes I'll never use. My strong suggestion to anyone looking to purchase this book: Go to a book store and flip through it before you buy. Maybe the recipes will spark more of an interest for you than they did for me.
Otherwise, the book was beautiful with lovely pictures of the food. Just not my favorite.
On the positive side, they are nice ideas, lovely pictures and would do for days off, but just not very realistic for someone who works, and needs time and energy for other things as well.
