Well, I must say, I have read many diet books and have quite a few in my library now but after reading the Vegetarian Route to Weight Loss, I have to say that this is now at the top of my list. Although I am not yet a vegetarian, in fact, I didn’t even think about it UNTIL I started to read this book. This is not just your everyday recipe book, it is almost like a mini instruction manual on how to not only eat the right foods but it offers the evidence as to why we should change our diets and how we can improve our longevity also, and I am sure we are all members of the ‘ME Preservation Society’ and so that is why I will be following the advice given in this book. For me it was really a wake up call after reading about the facts given in the book.
I am a lover of all foods and love when new cookbooks with new concepts / way of eating are published. I am not that familiar with the nordic diet but have heard eating like a viking was healthy and I love trying new recipes! The introduction is great and covers the whys and what to eat.
There is also a fascinating piece in the book regarding a norweigan chef who set up in London for the olympics – you have to read that part before getting stuck in to the recipes!Ahh the recipes…..They are mouth-watering good BUT they don’t just taste good, they taste amazing. I have bookmarked so many of the recipes and have actually ordered the paperback so I have have it to hand at home aswell as on my kindle.
Coquina soup was our lunch on Saturday and it was SOOO darn tasty. Saturday night we had the casserole of venison and topping off our Nordic weekend we had the lamb cheeseburgers on Sunday afternoon (with my sister and her boyfriend loving them too!) It’s great to have a book to new recipes and ones I really cannot wait to have over and over again.
This is a great guide to losing weight and becoming healthy through the proven diet known as, “The Nordic Diet.” The book starts off by describing the scientific studies that have been done that prove the efficacy of this increasingly popular diet; it certainly seems the benefits are real and this diet works out cheaper than other diets.
The recipes contained in this guide are unique, varied and delicious. Each one is explained well, with clear instructions. Nordic treats include; Anjali Pilchard Mouse, Malmo Potato Salad, Marinated and Stewed Rabbit, and Rhubarb Triffle.
Overall this is a well-written and engaging recipe book which includes some delicious Nordic flavours.
Nordic food is SEVERELY underrated. It’s almost impossible to find it anywhere out here in Los Angeles. But, this diet high in lean protein is directly in line with the health conscious culture of LA. I think this will be the next fad! I highly recommend this book. The recipes are traditional and delicious.
The NORDIC DIET is the hot new trend in weight loss and healthy eating. This book contains all the facts and research to help you to discover why eating like a Viking is both the tastiest and healthiest New Year Resolution which still permits vino with dinner. The Nordic Diet is all about fresh fish, meat and veg and unlike Paleo you can still enjoy legumes and whole grains. You will be steering away from processed food and the refined wheat and pastas of the Mediterranean Diet. Includes research showing that the Nordic Diet aids weight-loss with no calorie counting and helps to lower cholesterol, prevent cognitive decline and lowers blood pressure. Mouth watering recipes for soups, starters, main course (fish, pork, venison, duck, meat) and desserts are included with advice on how to adopt this simply delicious healthy lifestyle.
Food combining for flavor is an art form and Lisa is gifted. Six (sometimes more, sometimes less) ingredients and you can have a meal for your family, or yourself and a few house guests, that didn’t cost you an arm and a leg but isn’t standard fare. Although I have been cooking for over 30 years I found many ideas in this book. Last night we had the Haddock and Cheese Sauce – delicious and on the table in less than 30 minutes without a lot of fuss. I’ll make that one again but there are many others from the book to try first. If you get this book, be sure to skim through all the recipes because there are quite a few hidden gems within the recipes – especially about prepared salad dressings and spice blends. The author must be from the UK because in a few recipes she mentions a “vegetable marrow” – I had to google it. I can’t say I’ve ever seen these in our grocery stores, but I believe any summer squash would be a decent substitution. Every other term or ingredient was standard fare and easy to find in the grocery store. Great book for ideas, but also for new cooks not wanting to spend hours in the kitchen for every meal.
What a compelling introduction! Lisa shows WHY it is so much better to home-cook your meals than buy pre-prepared foods from the supermarket. Low fat means high sugar. And lots more reasons to get busy in the kitchen.
The index of recipes is over 3 pages long so you get tons of good ideas here for all kinds of dishes, both mains and desserts.
Options? Indeed. Lisa even gives vegetarian options such as replacing chicken breast with cashew nuts. And coconut milk as a lower fat option to coconut cream.
Measurements are provided in tablespoons/teaspoons and millilitres (mls). Temperatures are given in degree F.
Recommended. Your family will love you for it.
Recipes Even I Can’t Mess Up. Delightful recipes reminiscent of my youth but with added sparkle. These recipes are simple enough I can make them and the use ingredients I can get at our local store. What is more, they fit with some self-imposed dietary restrictions for some health and weight issues. Even the ones with foods I am limiting for now have such good things in them that as I relax the restrictions and again have “reward meals” I will explore those recipes because they have good, healthy ingredients. No more fast food treats for me.
