I read it all back to back right away and do appreciate the information. I did know a little about being a vegetarian since I have been one for a year and a half now. I am a big carb eater and can verify as the book states, you will not lose weight if you are eating too many carbs, like bread and pasta. This is my downfall, along with tortillas and rice.
When I first became a meatless eater, I was a vegan for 8 months. I then started craving eggs and cheese. I gave in and decided to eat very little of each. This book will work for you if you follow it to a T. If you think just because you become vegetarian you will lose weight just like that, you might be wrong. It takes more to it then that as outlined in the book. He suggests how to go gradually into a vegetarian diet, as it would be easier than just cold turkey. That is good advice since most people are still on the fence, even after years of thinking about it.
UPDATE JUNE 20 2014:
I have been using some of these recipes for about a month now and I can tell you that they are delicious and awesome! I really liked a few recipes and LOVED four of them. They will be regular meals in my meatless repertoire. Even if you are not a vegetarian, these could be good “meatless Monday” meals for you and your family to enjoy. I tried to follow the diet, less carbs, more plant food. I did lose 2 pounds this month, so it does work. If you are more diligent about it, you could lose more.
Vegetarians can be unhealthy or healthy. If you want to be a healthy vegetarian, follow this diet plan!
The 4 recipes that stand out for me and happen to love and have made are:
Spicy Bean Burgers Jonathan Vine Recipe
Black Bean Croquettes Jonathan Vine Recipe
Sweet Potato Pasta Jonathan Vine Recipe
Greek Spinach Pie Jonathan Vine Recipe
I like that he gives you advice about eating out on the vegetarian diet. It’s not as hard as you might think. Don’t be afraid to ask your waiter/waitress for help!
If you read the book and you are not a vegetarian but are thinking about it, I think it will push you into your decision easier. Jonathan Vine has another book with Vegetarian Recipes in under 15 minutes that will FURTHER push you into either an AHHA moment or make your mouth water.To read my review of Jonathan Vine’s ,go here – Vegetarian Quick & Easy – Under 15 Minutes: (100 Simple Natural Foods Recipes).
