3.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing!, 3 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Honestly Healthy for Life: Healthy Alternatives for Everyday Eating (Hardcover)
As and advocate of the first book, I pre ordered the second from Amazon. In hindsight, I wish that I had waited and thumbed through it before coughing up £25.00. Its very pretty yes but I am disappointed. As a cookery book, it lacks true substance. Theres a distinct absence of proper meal recipes, instead is filled up with an enormous amount of cakes, puddings, sweet snacks and such like. There's little in the way of great salads, grains, pasta and pulses recipes, instead a lot of side vegetables. If you're deciding on which to buy, all the great ideas are in the first book!

HI Julia, Sorry you feel it wasn't up to your satisfaction. Out of the 134 recipes there are only 30 sweet recipes. We tried to create an overall balance for a healthy lifestyle with over 30 salad dishes and meals like quinoa risotto, lentil falafels, spiced dhal, roasted aubergine and mango salsa with rice noodles, sunday roasts, two different pasta dishes including a Bolognese and a tomato sauce to our on the go section showing you how to make different combinations of salads with pulses, grains and vegetables. We hope you will try some of the abundance of salad recipes that are in this new book and you enjoy the recipes. Thanks for your feedback we take all comments on board for the planning of the next book, we are so glad you loved the first book so much!

hello
I loved the first book but found some of the ingredients really expensive and hard to find. Also as I am the only one eating the meals I would find freezer signs useful - is the new book laid out in the same way as the old one in that regard?
