This is a must have for anybody really trying to follow the A Blood Type diet. Planning meals from this book is so much more relaxed than trying to amend other recipes to fit the blood type diet. It has made grocery shopping and meal planning much easier for me. Plus, the recipes are delicious. The Veggie Lasagna is the best veggie lasagna I have ever had! And some of the meals seem so indulgent compared to how I was trying to follow the blood type diet on my own – especially the Herb-Crusted Turkey Breast, Stone-Fruit Salad, and Fish Tacos. Major props to Chef Kristin O’Conner for developing such healthy, delicious meals! HOWEVER, this book is poorly edited and not appropriate for people just beginning to cook. There is no ingredient index, no sense of how long recipes will take to make, not enough suggestions for pairing food, and too many omissions/typos. One soup recipe says to “add water bring to boil and simmer,” but never says how much water. I guessed 4 c. and it worked out. Another says “bake until…” but it never says how long or at what temperature. Some recipe titles mention ingredients that are not in the recipe! This is poor editing, and should be improved for future editions. I would recommend that the publisher create a site for people to report such omissions/ typos. Other suggestions for the next edition. – A list in the introduction of where featured ingredient explanations are located and suggestions for buying and storing rare ingredients. – index! – weekly meal planners with shopping lists that minimize how many ingredients must be bought. Buying many ingredients that I only need small amounts for make following the A blood type diet much more expensive and harder to follow. Build the meal plans with cost and efficiency in mind. (ex: each week have 1 poultry, 1 fish, and 3 veggie dinners, with lunches that take into account leftovers from dinner) All in all I love this cook book! And I highly recommend it to my friends who like to eat and cook healthy meals. But shame on the publishers for not editing it appropriately. Poor editing really reduces the quality and usability of this book – especially for people who are trying to eat and cook healthy for the first time.
The information and the recipes in this book are really useful. The time it takes to prepare and cook most of the meals is so short that it makes my life easier. (Note: work 110+ miles from home and travel back and forth daily). With long commute daily and limited time to do other things, having a book that allows you to cook healthy and still have fun in the kitchen is a big blessing. Wonderful book!!!
This updated book makes it easy to shop and recipes are simple enough to follow. I bought the A blood type for my husband so we can match up recipes that we can do together. The eating according to your blood type really works, if you want to feel good and maintain a healthy weight, give this a try, you will feel better within days! Thank you.
