"The best-selling author and popular NYT columnist gives us his innovative and easy diet plan, complete with recipes--by eating vegan every day before 6:00pm, you can lose weight and dramatically improve your health. Every day we learn new benefits of the vegan diet, and discover how cutting meat and animal products out can still mean a world of delicious meals. Now Mark Bittman brings his expertise to vegan cooking, giving you an easy-to-follow diet plan plus 50 simple everyday recipes--exclusively vegan meals for breakfast and lunch, and as flexible as you need to be for dinner. Building on his hit book Food Matters, Bittman outlines in six principles the reasons that a partially vegan diet can dramatically improve your health. When you eat lots of fruits and veggies while cutting back on meat and dairy, and cook as much as possible at home, you automatically find yourself eating more sensible portions and almost no junk food. You can live healthier, not just eat healthier, when you eat with eyes wide open. This is Bittman's flexible, ethical way of eating better and losing weight, using common sense in the kitchen"--… (mere)

This book was such a disappointment to me that I debated only giving it one star; however, I can see the value for someone else (well, a little). My biggest disappointment is that this book was nothing new: as Mark Bittman tried to regale us with all his amazing research (possibly re-summarizing his articles), all he did was state the same information as every other vegan-inspired book. If you've read one, you've read this - save the one idea that you've gathered from the book jacket: he proposes that you only eat vegan for breakfast lunch and snacks, but can eat animal products for dinner. Yes, he has a little more guidance, but not much else of consequence.

The worst part for me was I had (what were apparently) completely unrealistic expectations from an erroneous review: I was under the impression that (a) that his book would be more of a memoir, reflecting on the experience of being a food writer having to deal with this significant life change; and (b) that the recipes would be better as he was trying to contend with the idea that he likes good and/or gourmet food, so he created stellar vegan dishes. These would have put something of himself into the book. Instead, he is writing like yet another reporter who thinks that, because he can read, he is another expert. A terrible trend that Bittman is perpetuating, but more how boring he has made his writing because of it. This isn't news; there should have been more of himself in there (if only to set him apart from every other book that has come to market regarding veganism and/or flexitarianism - and so many of them have more heart).

I am not saying you won't walk away with something. I did try to mental deconstruct his new "food groups" (despite that people who do new food groups/pyramids actually don't get science behind them - it's not all industry influence) so I tried to consider his ways of thinking and motivation for his choices. If you are a complete newbie, this book can be a good place to start. I thought most of his recipes are boring; that being said, they are incredibly flexible, unlike most cookbooks and I wrote out 11 of them for the future (the recipes may not be stellar but I am sadly lacking in the breakfast department; as well, I thought the Spiced Apple Jam might be a good recipe to make for the holidays).

However, I was so excited about this book due to my unrealistic expectations that I bought it in hardcover, expecting it to take a haloed place amongst the books I keep. I am now disappointed that I spent that much money (and time) just to donate or abandon it somewhere. I suggest borrowing it from your local library: you can always purchase it after if it strikes a cord. ( )

The point of this book isn't too turn anyone Vegan but to increase the amount of plant-based meals in people diet. ( )

There's certainly a lot to like in this book. It's a reasonable approach to eating less meat and animal product, and more veggies. It's well-written to convince anyone that they can make some progress on that goal and see benefits for themselves and the planet. I think the general principles about diet flexibility, making simple substitutions, cooking in big batches, and using leftovers creatively, are useful, and it's good that they're framed as "principles" not "rules".

That said, there's a lot I can't get behind. The recipes strike me as very basic. I think they've been written for an audience which doesn't cook and needs to be told how easy it will be, and given permission to experiment. That's probably fine, but as a more experienced cook I didn't find much of it inspiring or even interesting, and the side bars of "other things you could put in this recipe" struck me as lacking detail. (I should admit here I haven't used any of the recipes yet and my opinion might change.) While I think there's a good argument about over-processed food, there's also the woo-woo fear of "chemicals" which always puts my teeth on edge. ( )
