5.0 out of 5 stars heart breaking, 3 Dec 2013

I read this from a mums perspective and it was heart breaking. how colettes mum was strong enough to even stay alive I do n ot know. it covers the entire story which spans some 25 years. no mother should have to go through that. as I say it is sad but truly inspirational too. what a woman

this didn't set my world alight as some books do but I had a great time reading it and thoroughly enjoyed it. when you need to relax and not think too hard but want a decent storyline this is a great book to pick up.

3.0 out of 5 stars its okay, 3 Dec 2013

in all honest there a re far too many meat substitute ideas in this book for me. it is also written for the American market so can be difficult to get through. there were a few nice recipes which I will use but on the whole not worth getting for me.

well worth a read. its informative, talks I a no nonsense way and will help you be the weight you want not the weight you think you are stuck at. it doesn't preach or nag but gives you the tools to sort your life out.

I was hoping this could be helpful but this didn't inspire me at all with its ideas that seemed to have little or no relevance to my life. im all for saving a pretty penny but this didn't cut the mustard!

5.0 out of 5 stars another life changing read!, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Wow! i wasn't sure when i started reading the book if i was going to like it but i warmed to the author quickly and I am so glad I read the entire book.
it has made me realise how we need to understand nature and live with it not diametrically opposite it and how having a positive mental attitude is life changing.
I have even now switched form vegetarian to full macrobiotic diet as a result of reading this. im no hippy im what some may call a chic city girl living in London.
get t his book, its free, be inspired and change your life for the better.

5.0 out of 5 stars a life chasnging book, 3 Dec 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was recommended this book by a friend after hitting a real crisis caused by the food I was eating. I have always been vegetarian but knew that the food I ate such as dairy were causing me grief! I am not a fan of processed foods or meat substitutes so any old vegan cook book was never going to hit the mark.
This book is awesome for so many reasons. it explains the philosophy of eating and makes so much sense. in the western world we readily shove any old rubbish in our mouths and most of the time its not even proper food!
It has amazingly tasty simple recipes for which I have had absolutely no problem finding any of the ingredients. The food is filling yet light.
the recipes are written in a chatty way which I personally find great.
the author has so much expertise you know you can trust her.
have just ordered two more copies, one for my daughter and one for a friend.
