This review is from: Appetite for Reduction: 125 Fast and Filling Low-Fat Vegan Recipes (Paperback)
Great, relatively simple recipes that usually come out very well. Still exploring the book. The oft mentioned niggle with ICM's books is that sometimes you don't know what the ingredient is as she uses the American-English word. It's not frequent and I'm sure I could google the ones I can't decipher, but hey it allows some experimentation - I'm sure the author would approve.
The layout is clear. There are some pictures - not alongside the recipes - to get your taste buds going. ICM makes some helpful suggestions for different combinations of dishes from the book. Her style is upbeat and breezy - and is I suspect one you'll either love or loathe - happily I'm in the former camp - so best to read an excerpt if you can.
And they're all low fat and low cal. All the figures for protein, fat, carb and other nutrients (eg calcium) in each dish are listed for a standard portion in the margin next to the recipe which you may find helpful.
She also indicates how to make the recipes gluten-free - where it's possible - which I've appreciated.
No puds hence the 4 stars, but I appreciate that is slightly churlish given the book's intention.
All in all, thoroughly recommended as a means of taking you down to the Paradise City without the (Axel?) grease.
Ps In case my bad puns put you off, ICM makes no references to the title.
