The reason I've knocked off a star is that, as a biologist, I take issue with some of Mr Brazier's pseudo-science when it comes to nutrition, e.g. pH. It is my informed opinion that many of his claims would not stand up to evidence-based scientific scrutiny. He should have just left it out as his primary argument is well served by the proven health benefits of a plant-based diet. At least he's not telling you to starve yourself like all those other nonsense diets! Another gripe is the repetition, such as having a Portobello Burger that's pretty much identical to a Portobello sandwich, and then having a seperate 'recipe' for cooking the Portobellos themselves.
Eating healthily takes that little bit more effort but it's worth it when the food is this scrummy...
UPDATE: after intense usage, the book itself has disintegrated into individual pages...!
As well as lots of tips and guidance about plant based eating.
Good job Brendan!
