Vegetarian Cooking Without: All recipes free from added gluten, sugar, yeast, dairy produce, meat, fish and saturated fat
  • Used Book in Good Condition

‘Vegetarian Cooking Without’ by nutritional therapist Barbara Cousins was written following requests for a vegetarian version of ‘Cooking Without’. So many vegetarian books rely heavily on the use of cheese, milk, cream and wheat and appetizing dishes without these ingredients are harder to find.

‘Vegetarian Cooking Without’ contains recipes that are well balanced and delicious but without the use of ingredients such as gluten, dairy produce, sugar, yeast and saturated fats. These foods can cause individuals to have a variety of health problems. The recipes are not only for vegetarians but for anyone wishing to include more, healthy, enjoyable vegetarian meals in their diet whilst avoiding certain problem foods.
All Barbara’s books contain a written section about health and in the front of this book Barbara covers topics such as ‘blood sugar balance’, ‘mental and emotional detoxification’, ‘the menopause’ and ‘weight control’.
