Are you home (or on the road) alone? Are you tired of Fast Food, microwave noodles or sandwiches for all your meals? Lord knows I was sick and tired of junk food while living as a bachelor in Libya, while my wife stayed in Cairo. At the time, fast food wasn’t even really an option. It was tuna, chips, cheese and juice or long-life milk for most every meal --- I gained fifty pounds in a year and friends assumed I was eating good. Hah. I actually could have put the contents of this book to work for me in Tripoli, and been far healthier today. Instead…
Diabetes Type 2 and bouncing between 270 and 300.
Yes, that intro is a long way of leading into this, ALMOST spectacular cookbook. There are a number of tantalizing meal combinations displayed that certainly would help satisfy one’s palate while not overwhelming their body’s ability battle against deteriorating health.
Read on to learn what I loved and what I did not love about this meal preparation guidebook…
Length: Print, 96 pages.
Q - Target Audience/Genre and is it marketed as Nonfiction or Fiction:
A – This is a nonfiction guide to help single people eat healthy in a convenient manner.
Q - How was this book obtained?
A – Bought on Amazon.
Q - Are there a lot of typos/misspellings, grammatical errors or other editing failures?
A – No.
Q - Is this a fast, easy read or is it more of a leisure read?
A – It’s not really a book to read. Rather, it is a cookbook.
Q - What sort of language does this writer use to amplify the points made?
A – Plain English.
Q – What age group is this suitable for?
A – All ages above 10 or 12 years.
Q - My biggest pleasure or disappointment?
A – Recipe layout isn’t ideal. Generally, ingredients should be listed largest quantity to least.
Also, especially since it is supposed to be healthy eating, I wish the author had included nutritional information. For people with diabetes this is especially important.
Otherwise, I loved just about everything in this book. Her writing is vibrant and easy to read. The organization makes it easy to find any given item. The color photographs throughout are a great touch.
To give a feel for the editing, and the style and flow of this work, I am posting a brief excerpt below.
Rather than an excerpt, I have attached four photographs that should help readers to decide if these meals are enticing for them. As for myself, I am going to ask my wife to take a look at these recipes. She’s always telling me Americans don’t know what a good salad is. She will loves the options…
Despite the two flaws, I consider this an indispensable guide for the single man or woman who wants to eat healthy, nutritious meals that can be prepared a few days in advance, but that don’t translate into leftovers day after day.
Four stars out of five. Nutritional information, especially, would raise this to five stars.
Comments regarding your opinion of this book or of my review, whether favorable or unfavorable, are always welcome. If you buy the book based on my review and become disappointed, especially, I do want to know that and I want to understand how I can improve as a book reviewer. Just please be polite.
