Introducing the flexible way to eat healthy, slim down, and feel great! "Flexitarianism" is the hot new term for healthy dieting that minimizes meat without excluding it altogether. This ingenious plan from a high-profile nutritionist shows you how to use "flexfoods" to get the necessary protein and nutrients--with just a little meat for those who crave it. As the name implies, it's all about flexibility, giving you a range of options: flexible meal plans, meat-substitute recipes, and weight loss tips. Plus: it's a great way to introduce the benefits of vegetarianism into your family's lifestyle.

I found the basic nutritional information in the first 80 pages useful to help me find ways of reducing the amount of meat from my diet. I would have liked to see more nutritional information and fewer recipes (that are easily found in other books and the internet). Technically, the book is more about vegetarianism than flexitarianism (eg - none of the recipes contain meat).

The book seemed like a good choice, but I was disappointed. Every recipe I tried was very bland. I needed to add spices to make the meals remotely edible.
