Amazon calculates a product’s star ratings based on a machine learned model instead of a raw data average. The model takes into account factors including the age of a rating, whether the ratings are from verified purchasers, and factors that establish reviewer trustworthiness.
Not what I expected. It's mostly just a cookbook. Two pages were valuable and those were the ones that said "food you can enjoy" and "foods you should avoid". That's all I needed to know. If you like to cook, the recipes are fine. However, I cook very plain. Just a piece of fish or chicken, salt and pepper and cook.
I did not feel this cookbook was for a beginner. Many recipes have lots of ingredients and things not normally in a beginners pantry. I definitely would need to do some specialized shopping. Too much work to begin learning.
Some simple recipes but not much variety (expect the staple salads/bowls) . A lot of generalized advice at the beginning. The weekly meal plan has you jumping around the book, and hopefully you have room in your refrigerator for quite a bit of leftovers because they become part of the daily meal plan. Blank pages throughout. The picture of hummus/avocado toast (not really something you need a recipe for, so I was hoping it included a recipe for hummus) on pg 88 says the recipe is on pg. 95 but the recipe on pg. 95 is for granola. There was an interesting recipe for chocolate chili!!
While the recipes really look good, MANY include ingredients that are considered to be inflammatory such as legumes, eggs, nuts and nut milks and grains. Looks to be more of a 'whole foods' type cookbook.
This book had food that a person with Lupus should not eat. Garlic bad, Salt bad, nightshade vegetables bad!!! Furthermore a marketing screw up as no pictures of dishes to appeal to the visual presentation nor to give an idea of how it should look.
