The book is divided into 3 parts: 1. Protein Complementarity, 2. Living with the Earth in Mind, 3. The Recipes.
The good parts about this book are that EBE really makes a point of emphasizing food combining. Being a vegetarian does NOT mean just leaving meat out of the diet-you have to compensate for the incomplete proteins found in vegetables by food combining. Being that this book is a spin-off of the revolutionary (when it came out) "Diet for a Small Planet", its recipes focus on wholefoods and nutritional value. After having made many, many of the recipes in this book, I can say that they're good "basic" recipes, but not very flavorful. What I have done is make the recipe exactly as specified in the book, and after tasting the food made my own adjustments. In summary, this is a good starting point for vegetarianism that covers a wide variety of recipes, that with personal tweaking, result in tasty, nutritious food.
