This book, like many of her other titles is part lifestyle guide, part cookbook and does contain over 100 plant based recipes. The thing I love most about this book is it is a "life detox" plan - how many traditional detox books do we seer that center around food only and a restrictive plan that will lose weight short term but is certainly not a long term plan and not a road map for a better life, which this book leans towards
The book begins by a brief introduction to the "life detox plan"which essentially is designed to help you feel better inside and out; its about self acceptance and loving ourselves just the way we are with some tweaks to help us be happier, healthier versions of ourselves. Then part one features the author sharing personal experiences and those of others she has worked with as we are taken through chapters such as clearing blocks that hold us back , clearing self judgement, approval addicts ( yes, that talking to everyone that needs "liked" comments to their social media -let it go and just like yourself) and guilt cleanse. This section is also peppered with advice for small steps we can take and also references recipes later in the book that tie into the given discussion. Its an easy read and interesting too.
Part two is the recipes: Smoothies and bowls, salads, Starters and side dishes, soups and stews, entrees, brunch, kids corner and desserts and bars and this was the part that encouraged me to make this purchase as a I am collector of plant based recipe books. For the most part, the recipes call for general produce, nuts, seeds and spices but there are a few that have specialty ingredients but these can likely be adapted.
I think the recipes is the part that I was a little let down by and hence took off some stars - for example, the tempeh taco meat salad shows a plate where the tempeh is accompanied by a rather pedestrian looking salad that reminds me of something you would get free to begin your meal at a family style chain restaurant and the smoothie section features the old standard of how to make nut milks. Other 'dishes' include steamed veggies and asparagus with some almonds - very basic, very simple so I wonder if the intended audience is a very novice cook.
The entrees depends on your taste I suppose, but again I was not blown away by them - take a pasta dish for example with some store bought gluten free pasta, basil yeast, avocado and tomato?! It looked boring and sounded boring and certainly nothing I would want to make, and again taste dependent, but for me I am not into bolognese, shepherds pie or veggie burgers, so found it laden with more comfort dishes than I would like. The lentil love loaf does however look like something I will make and I did whip up the happy earth scramble which is easy and delicious. The kids dishes are really fun though and parents will love them - simple and easy!
This book is interesting and has some interesting information but sadly the recipes are a little lackluster for me but it might be just right for someone newer to a plant based diet!
