This review is from: Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes (Paperback)
I'd like to begin by discussing the product description, specifically 'Or are vegans actually anorexic? (All they eat is lettuce)!'. No, they're not. If the two have been put together here to prove a point of 'No, vegan does not equal anorexic' that would be fair enough, however anyone assuming that one equals the other should probably do some reading on both subjects.
Ive been a fan of Isa's books since becoming vegan around 18 months ago - all of the recipes contained within them are easy to follow and yield ace results. I'd read a lot of positive reviews of Appetite for Reduction and do not, for an instant, regret buying this book. The recipes are as easy to follow as before however the main difference is that to taste, you'd never guess you were eating 'diet' foods. The flavours and textures of the dishes are just as delicious (if not more so) as higher calorie/fat/carb counterparts.
There is nutritional info for each recipe making it easy to track whatever you need to. The Sanctuary dressing is amazing, as are the caulipots, chickpea and quinoa salad, etc. I'm looking forwards to making my way through it and trying all of the recipes.

I appreciate your point about reading up more about vegans and anorexics as there is a lack of understanding I'm sure. The link is often made though because it's not that unusual for those developing or living with eating disorders to be incredibly picky about their food or to claim a vegan/vegetarian/coeliac/other 'special' diet as a way to explain/excuse/divert attention from what they are or aren't eating.
