The veggie bit I'm used to, but the other stuff is tricky until you get this book.
It may not say it on the cover, but this is just as useful for somebody on a wheat-free diet (though not necessarily a gluten-free one) as somebody on a low-carb diet. Since recipes containing wheat are nearly always high carb, they're not in here.
It seems like a bit of a niche product, this recipe book, but the food you make from it is just great food, like anything you'd expect from an experienced food writer like Rose Elliot. It introduces you to a few ideas you wouldn't try otherwise perhaps, but that can only be a good thing.
The recipes I've tried all turn out really well, and the food is so good that the phrase I often hear is, Why can't restaurants serve food like this when it's so easy to do?
I do feel Rose Elliot has jumped on the band wagon here. The recipes just didn't feel right. After 25 years of wholesome yummy vegetarian food, the recipes here felt quite alien and restrictive. But that's the low carb diet for you, and from experience, I've decided it's not for me. I tried it and felt terrible.
Essentially, Rose Elliot has 'developed' a vegetarian version of the Atkins diet. I bought this recipe book together with her other book which explains more about the principles and how the diet it supposed to work. I also read the Atkins books from the library. At first, I really enjoyed reading the books. I thought, at last, something totally different to try, which was almost guaranteed to lose excess pounds (you read stories of real people praising the diet and you think, hey, this is fantastic!). Well, I followed the diet for a month. I did the two week carb cleanse to start with. The first few days were tough, the next two not so bad, as it was great to feel really satisfied and not hungry, but the remainder was terrible. I was totally lacking in energy and I had a very upset tummy. The cramps were sometimes so bad, they would wake me at night. I then moved onto phase 1 and still felt I had no energy.Read more ›
