Wholesome (and tasty)
on March 21, 2013
Having tried Brendan's recipes in his earlier books, I was a little leery of what this book might hold. Afterall this is the man who invented the Vega shake - amazingly good for you with a huge energy boost - and I drink it ~5x a week - but not exactly an example of delicious by any means (or even palatable).
I should not have worried. This book is a collection of recipes from chefs (and taste is a definite focus). Recipes are vegan, gluten free, nutrition rich, and delicious. There is also an extensive introduction to the Whole Food Diet with information on many of the foods and supplements (such as maca) that Brendan recommends. This is not a diet, this is a way of life. Food shouldn't be about calorie counting and suffering, but about filling up on wholesome, nutritious foods that make you feel better.
