The information in the beginning is pretty good. The recipes pretty much all have nuts or nut flour, so if you have that allergy you'll have to figure out your own substitute. There is also alot of tofu, which I am not a fan of, so I'll have to figure that out. The author advocates more plants whether or not you choose to go vegan but doesn't acknowledge alternate eating regimens with the recipes, e.g. adding meat, or dairy options that would go well with the recipes. It was ok though

This book has the best cookbook introduction that I have ever read. Desiree opened her book with a simple yet powerful message that resonated with me: just eat more plants! I like that she wasn't forcing her opinion or way of eating onto the reader, she was simply sharing some nutritional information and encouraging the reader to just eat more plants - you don't have to be perfect. Personally, in the past 15 years I've gone from being vegetarian to strict vegan and then vegetarian with vegan ten ...more

the recipes look good. As goes with chef/cookbook writers though they assume the reader is an accomplished cook. my beef is more with the format of the book then with the actual recipes. But because of the format I'll probably never use the book. this is like one of those annoying food blogs where you have to scroll through all of the stories and chit chat and unnecessary instructions before you get to an actual recipe. And the print is so small I'll have to use a magnifying glass while cooking! ...more

The innovative recipes in Eat More Plants by Desiree Nielsen are really great. The author makes it easy to expand your cooking repertoire with more vegetarian options. Not that she recommends people to abandon the omnivore diet, but rather focus on variety, with what the food industry now calls the edible legumes: functional foods. Nielsen has made these recipes simple to follow and what I like best, feel so do-able.

Scientifically, I don't agree with some of Nielsen's interpretation of how benef

Some really good information on not just why you should eat a more whole food, plant based diet, but how to start and what to look for to make sure you're getting all the nutrients you need. The author is vegetarian and promotes veggie and vegan diets but without shaming or expecting everyone to want to give up meat and animal based products entirely. All the recipes are as inclusive as possible, so they're vegan, gluten free, dairy free, and many are but free as well.
