Not quite what it says on the tin, but a good range of recipes
, 4 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Eat Green Get Lean: 100 Vegetarian and Vegan Recipes for Building Muscle, Getting Lean and Staying Healthy (Paperback)
This is one of very few books that 'caters' for vegan athletes/body builders, which is why I decided to purchase it.
Firstly, the range of meals is varied and interesting. They don't look too difficult or time-consuming to make.
However, the introduction says "most of the recipes are sorted into two categories: recipes for getting big and recipes for getting lean". This isn't the case. It's just one set of recipes and you're left to your own devices to decide which meet your goals.
In the book there is a link to a bonus spreadsheet that contains all of the recipes and their nutritional values, to make meal planning easier. Unfortunately this link doesn't work.
A minor point is that the book appears to have been tailored to the UK; next to some unusual ingredients it'll say which shops you can get them in. However, the measurements/sizes are nonetheless in US 'cups'. It would have been good if metric measurements were written alongside them.
Nutritional values are shown for every recipe, which is of course incredibly useful.
I haven't made any meals yet because the book only just arrived, but I will try to remember to update this review once I've done so.
