The essential recipe book for vegetarians following the 5:2 Diet. The 5:2 Diet, also known as The Fast Diet or Intermittent Fasting Diet, is hugely effective for weight loss and improving well-being. Celia Brooks has created this book to make fast days interesting, fun and painless. Everything here is healthy and vegetarian, with many vegan-friendly and gluten-free recipes. The recipes are all quick, satisfying, and nutrient-rich, yet all under 300 calories. If you're cooking for non-fasters, there are suggestions for multiplying and bulking out the meals.
With advice on meal planning and stocking your kitchen, detailed nutrition counts and easy and delicious fast-day recipes for breakfast, snacks, main meals, flavour bombs and drinks, this is the book to change your life, for good.
