5.0 out of 5 stars Honestly Easy - and interesting too! 9 Jun 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book is inspiring... I've had it less than 24 hours and I've already made two recipes! The premise of the book is tagged as "alkaline" - however, this really wasn't my main reason for buying it. I am gluten/cow's milk intolerant and was hoping to find some healthy recipes I could adapt - not knowing that gluten ans cow's milk are two of the the things that the authors encourage avoiding. The book is also vegetarian, which I am not, though in these frugal times it's useful to have interesting and delicious meals that you can cook well without expensive meat/fish. I'd happily serve these at a "normal" dinner party - might even invite my vege mates round just so I can show off!

All the recipes are very accessible - I had most of the ingredients in my kitchen already - you may have to invest in some specialist flours and consider where you may find some "goats cheddar" (I found mine in my local supermarket with much surprise!) - and I suggest you buy some raw cacao powder and make the chocolate mousse (with the strange green ingredient) because it is absolutely to die for - and 100% guilt free! The instructions are clear and easy to follow - if you have a small understanding of food prep you'll find them a doddle.

The authors have clearly thought this through - and not just jummped on a band wagon to bang a drum, the "pitch" is sensible and doesn't make sensationalist promises. I have a collection of healthy eating diet and cookery books to rival the stock here in Amazon and this is absolutely the best one I have found so far. It's practical as well as being beautifully presented and a book I will buy to give as a gift in future. If this is what the authors/producers were going for then they have hit the nail on the head! VERY well done! Thanks!

1.0 out of 5 stars Kindle edition was huge mistake 14 Mar 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Completely frustrated with kindle edition, writing so small and can not be zoomed. Have to press the paragraph's for the 'bubble' to come up - they are very temperamental particularly close to edge of page - then the page just keeps turning instead!

1.0 out of 5 stars Not That Healthy 12 Feb 2014
By Keri MZ
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I just received this book and hope I can return it, as after flipping through the intro I found the authors recommend certain "healthy" foods that are anything but.

I was so excited when I ordered this book, as I recently read another book about alkaline eating and adopted a lot of the principles. However, many of the recipes in this book call for agave syrup, which is marketed as a healthy and natural, yet is ultimately a highly processed sweetener containing more fructose than high fructose corn syrup. There is typically 90% fructose in agave! High fructose usually contains 55% and we all know how awful that is! Soy products, like soy milk and tofu, are also referenced despite the negative effects they have on our health.

Sure, the recipes look great but I question the authors' credibility if they are telling readers to use the ingredients I discussed above.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Food. That's it! 19 Mar 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I'm a frequent Amazon consumer.. Yet this is my second ever review... Tells you something!

This book is just wonderful. There is a great introductory section on why an alkaline diet is healthy for you, and lists the good, the bad and the ugly in acidic terms.

The recipes, however, are why I have come here to write to you. I've had the book for 3 weeks, and most of our dinners and lunches have been made from the recipes here. They are probably the tastiest meals we've ever had. A couple of them I've made many times already as they are just so delicious (the HH sunday breakfast to name one!). The best bit.... My toddler loves them! They are very different to any other cookbook I've ever bought, the ingredients sound a bit strange to be mixing with each other, but each time I make a recipe I'm really surprise with just how good it tastes. I am a keen cook, and buy lots of recipe books - but usually I make one or two recipes and then the book gets shelved. Not so with HH - I am really looking forward to making even more of these lovely dishes.

Expect to be buying plenty of fresh vegetables, take a stab at making your own bread, some healthy baking ideas and enjoying fab cheeses. The book is vegetarian, but you can always add baked chicken or fish to some of them - which is what we do.

I disagree with the reviewers who say the ingredients are hard to come by and too expensive. Most of the items can be found at Sainsburys - including Agave Syrup (look in the sugar aisle). Other items like Himalyan Rose Pink Salt - comes in at 2.99 in Holland & Barratts... in the same size pot as rock salt would cost you 1 in Sainsburys. Now, I realise that's a high mark-up... But at the quantities you will use this item...

2.0 out of 5 stars Avoid if you're on a budget 1 Aug 2012
By Anajoe
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
On the plus side, the book contains lovely photos and the layout is well presented.

Unfortunately most recipes require at least one unusual, hard to get a hold of and often expensive ingredient - Himalayan pink salt, rice syrup, agave syrup, lucuma powder, maca powder, xylitol to name but a few. I also find it a tad annoying that the authors use this as an opportunity to plug their favourite make of blender and juicer as well as listing a dehydrator as recommended kitchen equipment.

This isn't a book for an average person with a kitchen full of average equipment and on an average budget looking to try out some healthy recipes.
