Ruby Cooperabout this book: For those many readers who have benefited form Ruby Cooper's excellent Vegan cookbooks (there are six to date, all very worth your attention) this book will come as no surprise and at the same time will provide information for Vegan as well as Vegetarian believers to intelligently share their embracing the Vegetarian diet. As she states, `A healthy and balanced diet should contain foods and eatables from all the diet groups. It should contain vegetables, fruits, dairy, poultry and foods containing carbohydrates. These food items are divided into 5 main groups according to the nutritionists. These groups are whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables, poultry, dairy and fat and sugar.' And from this introduction she carefully guides us through the Vegetarian Diet - a vegetarian diet and cookbook for weight loss.
The various vegetarian meals of the day are divided into chapters and some of their contents are as follows: BREAKFAST - Cabbage & Caraway Seeds, Vegetable Frittata, Sweet & Spicy Swede, Beet & Strawberry Smoothie, Steamed Vegetable Bowl, Eggs with Spicy Tomatoes, etc; LUNCH - Spinach & Tomato Soup, Avocado & Peach Salsa, Roast Summer Vegetables, Steamed Carrots with Caraway, Roasted Tomatoes Sandwich, Spicy Butternut Squash Soup, etc; SNACKS - Baked Veggie Fries, Oven Potato Chips, Honey Beetroot, Spicy Roasted Eggplant, Kale Chips, Tofu Dip, etc; DINNER - Green Beans with Ginger, Potato Curry, Baked Squash, Baked Chickpeas with vegetables, Roasted Broccoli, etc; and even DESSERTS - Sweet Potato & Apples, Apple and Pears Compote, Broiled Peaches, Fruity Delight, Baked Peaches ,Watermelon & Cucumber Salad.
In her Conclusion she states, `A low fat vegetarian diet is a combination of two of the great diets, low fat diet and vegetarian diet. The idea behind this was basically to combine the benefits of both of the diets and to minimize the defects of any of the individual diets.' This is a chef of imagination and solid training in nutrition. The book is an exceptionally fine one - a recipe book more interested in what w eat than in making a pretty picture book. This is a very solid contribution to healthy living. Grady Harp, August 14
