It left a grainy texture; also, I found the white chocolate was a weak flavor. I now blend it up for making my protein smoothies.

It is a very informative book, but I didn't like the authors tone at times and occasional defencive and biased comments. For example, he states bout wine that"...[he] detest the stuff..." therefore doesn't promote it to readers. I think wine (which is basically fermented grapes) is a better compromise than a wheat beer. With comments like… Read more
