Rated 2 out of 5 by from Ok The name of the book is a bit of a turn off, but if u can get passed it and get into the book there isn't anything exceptional that u would expect from what the book says it delivers. :(

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nothing special I had high hopes for this cookbook after my friend who is going to school to be a nutritionist recommended it. Sure, there's a bunch of good recipes but they are all pretty basic - you can find them all online.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from love this book I have followed Dr Greger's work for a few years now so I know the intention behind the book, and I love it. Recipes are easy to make and easy to tweak to everyone's own taste. It has some really interesting things and some that I wouldn't necessarily try, but I use it as inspiration to come up with new dishes. 10/10 would buy again.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Didn’t love it Some good information, but very, VERY heavy on the fear-mongering. I can appreciate the research and the intention behind this book, but it definitely didn’t make me feel very good about myself...yet it also didn’t really inspire me to make any significant changes in my life. (Not that I won’t - I just don’t think this is the book for you if you are looking for inspiration.)

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Meh Recipes are pretty basic I didn't really find anything new or exciting while reading it. It is a plant based cookbook and focuses on whole foods and not junky fake meat/processed foods like other vegan cookbooks. A good book if you are just starting to eat plant based

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Super Healthy I loved How Not to Die and was very excited about this cookbook. The recipes that I have tried so far are the lemony hummus, the lasagna, quinoa tabouli and the moroccan lentil stew - all have been very good and I don't really notice that they have been made without oil but they do taste really healthy. I think for me this cookbook will be good for incorporating more oil/sugar/salt-free meals into my weekly routine. I am a huge user of coconut oil and really want to get away from that. One thing that I found a little annoying about this cookbook was that in a couple of cases it included pictures of ingredients, not the finished product. If you aren't going to have pictures of all of the recipes, could you not include a full colour picture of some lentils? Cause I already know that those look like. Overall I do really like this cookbook and will be using it to create my weekday meals.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So excited for this cookbook! I'm a longtime follower of Dr. Greger's work and I'm so excited for this cookbook! What a great companion to his 2015 publication "How Not to Die". I've only recently been transitioning to a fully plant-based diet and I'm super impressed with these recipes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Staple Cookbook! I was truly impressed by Dr. Greger's work on all aspects of this cookbook. Every recipe comes with a photo, and the photography is stunning. The recipes are also all about whole foods (i.e. blending a lemon piece instead of just extracting the juice), and come with recommendations (i.e. subbing out rice for quinoa or buckwheat due to arsenic level concerns in rice). There's also recipe difficulty levels, "Daily Dozen" food checkmarks, and sample menus. Finally, Dr. Greger includes research notes on many of the ingredients. If you're going to invest in a vegan cookbook, it should be a physician-approved one, and this one gets my top vote!
