Top Customer Reviews

Format: Hardcover
As a new-comer to vegetarian eating, I was concerned that my body would not be getting all the essentials it required. I need not have worried, as my friend bought this beautifully-illustrated book for me.
Nicola Graimes explains in non-technical language what vitamins and minerals are important for healthy living, precisely why they are important, then provides very detailed health benefits for every item of natural food available. She describes what to look for when shopping for them, how to store them, and the best preparation method for each to retain the maximum benefit to health.
The recipe section of the book contains detailed, illustrated instructions for the whole range of meals from snacks to more formal dining; in fact, something for every occasion. All in all, this is a most impressive book - an essential for anyone wishing to live a healthier lifestyle.

HASH(0x92e4c0a8) out of 5 stars Well worth the price 23 Feb. 2014
By Vegas65 - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased used, and it is great, one slight tear on the cover, otherwise perfect, the photos are worth the price alone, great book to leave out, just beautiful, and motivating to eat whole foods, they are so beautiful and so good for you, the recipes are a little involved for me, I like the Happy Herbivore ones better, but this is a great addition to my commitment to learn about and eat whole foods.

HASH(0x93185ba0) out of 5 stars An Excellent Reference 19 Aug. 2010
By Fran46 - Published on
Format: Paperback
I own this book and wanted to buy a copy for an adult ESL student who works in an upscale Italian restaurant. She is making the transition from busperson to waitress. Our lessons focus on the food section of the local newspaper, but I wanted a visual reference book for her to learn ingredients and cooking terms. This colorful and interesting book will meet our needs!
