The 5:2 Diet: Single Serving Vegetarian Recipes
The 5:2 Diet: Single Serving Vegetarian Recipes
Price: £3.08

3.0 out of 5 stars good recipes, 30 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an interesting book of recipes and all the recipes are for one person! My husband isn't doing the 5/2 so I need recipes for one. It can be very difficult to work out if the ingredients serve two or more! I would recommend this book to anyone contemplating this lifestyle ( because it's not really a diet). I would also recommend Dr Michael. Mosley's book - it too has some excellent recipes. I have been following his book for four weeks now and I have lost 12lbs. This is the best 'diet' I have ever followed and believe me I have done them all! It is so easy because it is only for two days so you don't get the dreaded temptations to stray.

Loved this book about Venice! I love Venice and have visited three times but this made me think about the people who live ( or cannot afford to live) there. I had no idea that the real Venetians were being pushed out of their city!

This gave me a new slant on the Prince Charles/Princess Diana story. I used to think Diana was wonderful but of course, there are always two sides to every marriage.

This book has been really well researched and gives one a different take on the character of The Lionheart. I have read quite a few of Sharon Penman's books and always enjoy them

This book throws a completely new light on the failure of Henry III to produce a surving male heir. I had no idea of the Kell chromosone, how interesting it would be to be able to prove this theory by DNA but I suppose that will never happen. I certainly thought this theory credible. Well worth the read!
