The numerous recipes we've tried so far have been delicious and inspiring. I wanted inspiration on how to create tasty meals from a wider variety of nutrient-rich foods, and find new ways to continue to create a well rounded diet. This book delivers. I'm eating nutrient dense, healthy food more frequently. My digestion is improved and as an active gym-goer I still feel sustained. Some of the ingredients may be hard to come by, but they can generally be found online.

The reason I've knocked off a star is that, as a biologist, I take issue with some of Mr Brazier's pseudo-science when it comes to nutrition, e.g. pH. It is my informed opinion that many of his claims would not stand up to evidence-based scientific scrutiny. He should have just left it out as his primary argument is well served by the proven health benefits of a plant-based diet. At least he's not telling you to starve yourself like all those other nonsense diets! Another gripe is the repetition, such as having a Portobello Burger that's pretty much identical to a Portobello sandwich, and then having a seperate 'recipe' for cooking the Portobellos themselves.

Eating healthily takes that little bit more effort but it's worth it when the food is this scrummy...

UPDATE: after intense usage, the book itself has disintegrated into individual pages...!

Disappointed, but maybe I'm already a little more hardcore than I realised. I was really hoping for more from this book. I'm someone whose diet is mainly vegetarian and has a keen interest in nutrition, but has started exercising and resistance training more seriously recently so adjusting diet to suit. I've ended up eating more fish and eggs than I would like for the protein, and have increased dairy intake so I thought I would fully transition to a plant based diet and put the work in that is required because I just don't like a lot of the food I'm eating. I need things that are quick to put together, can be prepped in advance, or can be frozen for the week.

I thought this book would have a lot more guidance re protein content of the meals but I found it sadly lacking other than the few sports recipes at the back. There are a lot of 'transitional' recipes that are pointless to me as I already have a sugar free diet and I was surprised at the amount of additional sweetening in all of his recipes, ie Medjool dates and agave syrup in everything. I don't put any additional sweetener in my smoothies with the fruit unless it is protein powder post work out. I also have excluded bread for some time, except on rare occasions and there was a lot of reliance on the 'sprouted bread' he favours, that would be nearly impossible to get in the UK. Medjool dates similarly, are extremely expensive and not easy to come by. The info at the beginning of the book is useful/inspirational and there are some good ideas for spreads, dips and sauces, however I may as well tear out the juicing and dessert sections as they are pointless. I'm hoping I can get at least a half a dozen recipes that I can mold to my own requirements.

This is a beautifully photographed, well laid out cookbook. Every single recipe is designed with your health in mind. Each recipe has an icon to provide further nutritional information, e.g. gf = gluten free option, pr = protein rich options, and so on. There are transitional recipes for those who are just venturing into a change of diet but for palates not yet used to a plant based one. The recipe for homemade almond milk is awesome. Well worth the time to make, which other than soaking is no time at all. I love the kale chips....very crunchy and the Roasted Red Pepper and Sweet Potato soup is one of the nicest soups I have tasted. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is considering a cleaner diet and for those that exercise and need better nutrition. You won't regret it.

Been looking for a good vegan book for ages since I became vegan a few months ago. Packed with loads of easy receipes, awesome morning foods.

As well as lots of tips and guidance about plant based eating.

Good job Brendan!

This book is aimed at people who are very active and do lots of sport. I was just looking for some good plant based whole food recipes so the book was not quite what I was looking for. However, the recipes are good, the ones that I have tried work well and are full of flavour and the more unusual ingredients can be found on the high street. It is American so the recipies are in cups and sticks and some recipes contain specific nutritional products from Brendan's own company (I've made substitutions without any problems). All in all a good, useful, usable and informative book

Didn't recognise a lot of the ingredients used and couldn't find them at the supermarket easily. Half the time the book seems to use the 'proper' name for the ingredients and after googling you discover its just a type of lettuce. Not a user friendly book in my opinion.
