Great book for a balanced diet

by Surflawyerchick on Sep 6, 2012

This book was relevant when published and today as it gives options to meat with healthy protein complimentary dishes. Happy cooking!

I purchased this book for my friend's grand daughter who has decided to become a vegetarian. This was THE book in the 70's and I thought that she could glean lots of imformation from it, and she has. This book will always be a great tool for anyone wanting to become vegetarian.


Somewhat Outdated Vegetarianism Info

by Bar1 on Jan 8, 2010

This is the first book I ever read on being a vegetarian and I considered it very helpful many years ago. However, I now find that thoughts on some of the subjects, such as combining different foods to obtain the proper amount protein, have changed over the years and gotten simpler so, though this is still an informative book, it is not as up-to-date as one might wish in this era.


Good book for Vegetarians

by Tabby1234 on Dec 24, 2009

I recently decided to become vegetarian, so I bought this book to figure out how to make complete proteins with vegetable foods. It's pretty political and she discusses alot of economics. Some of the facts are interesting, but I think some of this information is out of date.


Influential book

by LaMambisa on Jul 6, 2008

This book caused me to really think about the food I was eating. It had a very profound effect on me when I first read it in college. I became a vegetarian for several years after reading it. Even though I eat some meat now, this book taught me that protein that doesn't include animal products can be part of a delicious meal.
