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!

Packed with practical advice and in-depth, but well explained, science behind the theory of eating an alkaline diet to improve health. Well laid out with useful diagrams, tables and images. There's a menu planner, exercise advice and tip boxes. The authors, a nutritional therapist and a professional vegetarian chef, clearly know their stuff. Recipes are fantastic and really appeal to me. They include:

Breakfasts:
Green and fruit smoothies - various flavours
Buckwheat Pancakes
Quinoa Porridge
Granolas
Full English Breakfast

Starters and Soups:
Raw Summer Spring Rolls
Stuffed Courgettes
Pak Choi Parcels
Falafel Wraps
Patty Pan Canapes
Aubergine Pesto Rolls
A wide range of interesting soups and salads

Mains:
Pizzas with various unusual toppings (e.g. roasted beetroot, garlic and feta)
Layered Vegetable Bake
Puy Lentil, Coconut and Goat's Cheese Bake
Quinoa and Cranberry Burgers
Noodles with Smoked Tofu
Sweetcorn and Broad Bean Fritters
Mint and Mango Courgette Spaghetti
Tomato and Mushroom Dhal
Butternut Squash Risotto
Red Rice and Beetroot Risotto
Pea carbonara
Chick Pea Stew
Thai Curries
Aubergine with Cashew Pesto

Treats and Snacks:
Granola Bars
Peanut Butter Cups
Sticky Seed Flapjacks
Coconut Balls
Cookies
Cheesy Kale Crisps
Coconut Cake
Breads - a variety using interesting flavours and grains
Dips and Crackers

Desserts:
Polenta Cake
Chocolate Mousse (made with avocado!)
Sweet Potato Brownies
Poached Pears with Cashew Cream
Chocolate Superfood Ganache
Lemon and Poppyseed Almond Cake
Lychee, Mango and Basil Sorbet
Ice Creams - a range of tempting flavours, e.g. Strawberry and Coconut, Toffe Crunch

Hope you enjoy the book as much as I have.

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...
