Normally only drawn by recipe books full of enticing colour photographs, this book caught my attention via the laminated nutrient wallchart (also available from Amazon). The chart belongs on the kitchen wall and the book should be well-thumbed.
There are breakfast suggestions, wholesome and satisfying soups, quick and easy main meals (from lentil roast to barbecue beans), salad and vegetable suggestions, tea-time quick snacks and irresistible cakes and puddings (from mango hedgehog to vegan chocolate cake). Just flicking through the book makes my mouth water!
This book will appeal to those who love and use "The Moosewood Cookbook" and "The Enchanted Broccoli Forest" by Mollie Katzen. If you haven't seen these books but are looking for delicious, mostly healthy recipes, look them up immediately!
This book will join them as a must have for vegans, vegetarians and omnivores alike. Billed as "A practical guide to healthy animal-free nutrition & easy family meals" on the cover, "So, What Do You Eat?" provides all this and more.
The other really helpful part of the book is on the back cover where it lists each vitamin, all the minerals, protein, fibre etc and below each is what food will give you that nutrient - REALLY GOOD. I have already loaned this book out to several friends (not vegan or veggie) who have gained an insight and new ideas - particularly the food lists at the back.
The last points about the book are that it is all in handwriting with sketches by each recipe, which took some getting used to when it arrived, but now I find it quite charming and easy to go through. The book is also spiral bound with a really hard clear plastic cover front and back this makes the book very easy to use and flip through and keeps it in excellent condition.
I purchased this book to enhance my reading of Gillian McKeith's "You Are What You Eat" and it has been an excellent book to start me off on a better healthier eating regime (no dairy and no meat)
The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is that some of the recipes use tinned beans and tomatoes although these are easily substituted with dried beans and fresh tomatoes. The sweet recipes also rely on margarine and sugar, I would have liked some clean eating sweet recipes instead.
I'm vegan but a meat-eating friend of mine chose to use one of the recipes when she was hosting a dinner for other omnivores and she got so many compliments it's now a mainstay in her repertoire.
I hope there's more to come from Liz. Do yourself a favour and buy this book.
