This book has a lovely glossy of "foods to avoid" and also "foods that are excellent" right in the beginning which makes it easy to reference.
Although I haven't gone through the diet plan yet (I intend to). I did try out three of the recipes.
LAYERED RATATOUILLE was a little heavy on ingredients but tasted like a top chef made it, absolutely delicious!
BETTER THAN A COFFEEHOUSE PUMPKIN DRINK was very simple and easy to make, limited ingredients and so very good!
BETTER THAN GIRL SCOUT COOKIES limited ingredients, simple and these really are close to a clone to the namesake.
For one, there are no citings, it’s all face value. Many of the claims made about what’s Alkaline and what’s Acidic contradict other industry resources I’ve found; those with solid references and scientific backings; and particularly in the Oils category. In addition to these conflicts, it’s also self-conflicting. Take Olive Oil for instance. It’s listed as both Acid and Alkaline in different parts of the book. So which is it?
While the book cites many different oils and their PH assign, the only oil used in every recipe is Coconut Oil with no explanation given as to why. While I like Coconut Oil, it would be nice to have a little variety. But then again, since there is no author listed just a publishing house, one is left wondering if maybe a specific industry decided to put this book out to promote their commodity.
Oh well, its just a recipe book and probably has some great recipes. Just don’t get fooled into thinking this a solid nutritional reference of any kind.
