not a veggie author,
This review is from: Slow Cooking for Vegetarians (Paperback)This is a good basic book for veggie slow cooking and having tried several of the recipes I will say that they are very tasty. But having said this my problem with the book is that it has not been written by a vegetarian author and as a result the book is written almost apologetically as if it the best that could have been done without meat. I like my vegetarian cookery books to be written by someone who enjoys veggie food and writes as if vegiatarianism is the the only moral way of eating and not a second best option. But dont be put off by this as there are many tasty and easy to prepare meals here and many of them are low in fat or could be adjusted to be low fat if needed.

I am like the author and frequently find myself apologising for not being able to eat meat so I have just bought this book due to your comments and eagerly await is arrival. I have no problem with the author not being an actual vegetarian as my greatest wish was that I could still eat meat without worry but sadly my pain levels increase tremendously if I eat most types of meat these days. .
I honestly believe it is the chemical additives in mass produced animal feed that is responsible for many people suffering this way nowadays and also the reason many people react similarly to shop, especially supermarket prepared foods in general.
In fact I can eat some meat if I know and trust the farmer who reared it not to have fed it 'hard food' and just fed it on natural products such as grass, beet and hay.

It is not just the chemical additives it is the fact that we are natural herbivores and are not meant to consume animal products, not to mention the acidity of meat and dairy that cause a whole host of problems. I won't even get started on the ethics of eating animals! Good review S.A Lockett, thank you
