Some recipes are good, such as the mashed potates substitutes from cauliflower and some quick soups. However, I already had those recipes from another book and the web site. The new recipes I tried were a waste of time and tasted awful. Two cloves of garlic in 4 salmon cakes certainly eliminates the fish taste! The recipe for marinated shrimp involves lots of chopped vegetables for a marinade that you apparently throw away. I can get the same taste with the herbs in a crab boil mix and save an hour. And the recipe for "carrots and snow peas with parsley" is described at the top as being a great basil-flavored vegetable.
This book was obviously written in a hurry to hit the market while interest in the Fat Flush Plan is peaking.
The section on the recommended herbs and spices is esp. informative.
There are lots new, original recipes for all phases, but those who've made it to the maintenance stage, will esp. find new ways to create healthy versions of old favorites. The book includes updates for all phases, but esp. for Phase 3, with a greatly expanded list of suggested foods for special occasions.
Yet, the Fat Flush Cookbook is far more than just a bunch of recipes. Ann Louise provides an abundance of great advice on everything from Fat-Flushing Herbs and Spices to healthy cookware to how to keep special occasions healthy and Fat Flush-friendly! (I've already planned some GREAT meals over the holidays, using the new recipes in the Cookbook.)
If you are new to Fat Flush, the basic Fat Flush Plan is the place to start. But, you'll want to add this excellent cookbook as soon as possible to get some additional ideas about how to make Fat Flush your eating plan for life.
OK so this is not the kind of book that you want to read from cover to cover as the plot thickens, or should I say the sauce thickens .... but ... there are sections that make it worth the price alone ...
First .. chapter one and two that expalin the concept and process of the diet is very good and if you tie it in with your general knowledge of outher diet plans such of the 'Sugar Busters Diet' it is excellent ...
Then chapetr 3 is filler telling you that you'll need spoons and pots to be able to cook
Chapter four is absolutely fabulous since it describes the impotance and historically forgotten banefits of most of the important herbs and spices in your kitchen... I have a copy of that section right beside my spice rack as we speak ...
Lastly, the recepies, the reader should be very discerning and pick the one's that would be appealing and necesary... How to make sugar free catsup is super ... hot chocolate and even dishes using cardamon seeds are great ...
The book is a little pricy if you only buy it and put it on the shelf for some future project, but if you have the time and inclination to pick out what you want, well, then it's well worth it ....
