For example, the famed blog recipe for brownies didn't taste like a brownie. It tasted like a bland energy bar. Ex: Chili recipe She mentions in the book that the reason people don't want to go vegan is because they think the food will be bland. This food is bland. I ate primarily her recipes for a month straight so this isn't an issue of my taste buds being out of whack. The recipes I made in week 4 were just as bland as the ones in week 1.
When simple things like this are wrong in a recipe, disaster happens.

Then people think they are bad cooks and never want to cook in the kitchen again. More people need to get in the kitchen not out of it! These reasons make this recipe book frustrating and severely lacking. A person who has made recipes from many cookbooks will find this cookbook subpar for these reasons. I fear people who are on the standard American diet with very little kitchen skills and even less experience with vegan food will actually be forever repelled from eating vegan food if they cook from this book.
I don't recommend this book at all unless you know how to adjust seasonings and have spectacular kitchens skills so you can fix the issues with these recipes. But really, who wants to go into the kitchen to figure this mess out??? Jan 28, Judy Collins rated it it was amazing Shelves: books-read-in , non-fiction , food-allergies , new-releases , netgalley-arc , cooking , cookbook , ella-woodward. Was delighted to discover this book on NetGalley! What I enjoyed most about this beautifully packaged cookbook, making it unique--how Ella approaches this lifestyle. She demonstrates how to incorporate healthy eating habits and still entertain, travel, enjoy brunch, dinner parties, and socialize with girlfriends, and other friends with food.
Crispy Peanut Tofu & Cauliflower Rice Stir-Fry
She uses photography to draw you in to set the stage. I have found many people think they have to give up being sociable if they want to follow a healthy lifestyle. I am a reader, blogger and reviewer so have time to plan my meals, shop and enjoy the overall process. I also live in an urban downtown area with many vegan restaurants and gourmet health food stores nearby, within walking distance and a weekly farmers market. I have spent years researching and testing foods — Ella has done this for you wish she had been around years ago when I began experiencing problems.
Presently am traveling as my mom has cancer; making it more challenging; especially in areas where the nearest gourmet food store is over an hour away, and no healthy or vegan restaurants within an hour, and an entire family who eats like crap. I do not eat anything they eat.
When I travel, I plan all my meals and food ahead. My family and grandchildren, unfortunately live on processed food and they continue to wonder why they feel so bad? It takes education, research, and time to plan healthy meals and some people cannot comprehend how much better they would feel, if taking the time—it is so worth it! I was very drawn to this book, as I felt as though I were reading my own story, so could relate in so many ways.
Another Dinner is Possible 2nd Edition
My Experience with Food Allergies: About five years ago I began experiencing all sorts of allergic problems, from chemicals, medications, environment and mostly food allergies. It became so serious with emergency rooms visits, an array of allergy specialists, physicians, and cardiologist, etc. I refuse to take any medications, as believe in natural and holistic approaches. All of this started when going through menopause at age I had never been a sick person, very fit, exercise daily, and eat very healthy; with low blood pressure and taken no medications due to my sensitivities and intolerance.
My heart rate was all hours of the day and especially at nighttime with no sleep sending me into overdrive most of the time. When I worked out, my heart rate would not go back down. When out in the heat biking or jogging, my heart pounded and would take up to 24 hrs. After many tests and 24 hour Holter heart monitor, I could see what these foods were doing to my body. Being I cannot take medications, I began concentrating on foods. I take my health very seriously, and began keeping a food journal of everything I was eating from morning until evening, all meals, any snacks, and noted date, time, symptoms, ingredients, as well as recording of blood pressure, heart rate and exercise.
I even developed extensive excel spread sheets; well worth the time and effort. Over the course of two years, I began eliminating foods and began seeing a big difference. You have to take control, as a firm believer, "you are what you eat". I also find eating small little snacks and very small meals work best, so as not to put a strain on the digestive an heart system, plus better for allergies.
I am pleased to say, for the last three years, I have been a strict healthy natural vegan no meats or dairy , gluten-free, no alcohol, no sodas, packaged foods, no sulfites, no caffeine, no additives or preservatives, and no processed foods. I cannot tolerate sulfites - Look for sulfur dioxide, potassium bisulfite or potassium metabisulfite, sodium bisulfite, sodium metabisulfite, or sodium sulfite on food labels.
Sulfites are in many foods including beer wine, canned goods, trail mix, juices, baked goods, vinegar, many condiments, etc. I eat only organic, use sea salt, Stevia in the Raw, and drink only Smart Water and occasionally decaf coffee certain brands.
I eat fresh organic vegetables and fruits, Quinoa, beans, lentils, and whole grains I stay away from corn, wheat, and tomatoes. For the last three years I have experienced no heart palpitations, no anaphylactic attacks, no allergies, sinus issues, or stomach problems. I take no medications, or vitamins, no prescription drugs, or over the counter medications. I have tons of energy, healthy, fit, and have maintained a size 4 dress size, and will never go back to eating bad things.
I plan my meals, am very organized, and very seldom dine out, as do not trust the unknown additives.

If I eat one bad thing, it starts back, so I would rather give up than suffer a night of heart pounding. Summary With this being said, I am always looking for creative ways to cook and stay within my regime. Ella offers many added options and substitutions for dairy and chocolate and gluten-free diets. She demonstrates how to use brown rice flower, ground almonds, chia seeds, almond milk, buckwheat flour, coconut oil, nut butters, raw cacao powder, gluten free flour, etc, and of course, my favorite for years Quinoa which I eat daily in all sorts of different ways.

It is simple and easy to follow! Highly recommend!! Judith D. Collins Must Read Books Nov 03, Deborah rated it it was ok. I've read the cookbook cover to cover and there are several recipes that I want to try. I've made 2 of them so far and both were unsuccessful.
First, her very popular Sweet Potato Brownies. Pros: great consistency for a vegan gluten free brownie I've been trying to achieve for years. Cons: takes a lot of time and makes a lot of dirty dishes, overwhelmingly tastes like sweet potatoes, and does not have nearly enough chocolate flavor. These did not go over well and I had to throw them away. The go I've read the cookbook cover to cover and there are several recipes that I want to try.
The good news is that I immediately made them again with adjustments I knew would taste better bananas instead of sweet potatoes as the binder and almost triple the amount of chocolate and they were delicious! She didn't tell you what size pan to use which I thought was odd. Most cookbooks would mention that I would recommend 9X9 btw. The second recipe I tried was the Lentil Bolognese. She said she tested it and her friends loved it but there is no way this recipe was tested! The main problem was that it only calls for 2 cups of water.
I should have known immediately that 2 cups of liquid would not be nearly enough to cook 1 pound of vegetables and 3 cups of lentils.
