The 5:2 Diet, also known as The Fast Diet, is gaining momentum worldwide as thousands of people who try it see how effective it is for weight loss and improving their general well-being. Many books about the diet focus on fish and meat and ignore the fact that as a vegetarian you are perfectly placed to follow the diet with amazing low-calorie vegetables. Celia Brooks has created this book to make fast days interesting, fun and painless. On fast days, you don't want to fuss over food - you need quick, simple and satisfying meals with a low calorie count, so you can build fast days into your busy life and stick with it. Everything here is natural and vegetarian, with many vegan-friendly recipes. Most recipes are also gluten-free. Celia's fast-day meal recipes are all super quick (30 minutes or less), accessible, satisfying, and nutrient-rich, yet all under 300 calories. All are prepared in small portions for either one meal, or with an additional portion. This extra portion is designed to be saved for the next fast day, and most are portable, for bringing to the office in a packed lunch, for instance. If you're cooking for non-fasters, there are suggestions for multiplying and bulking out the meals for family members. With an introduction to the 5:2 lifestyle, advice on how to stock your kitchen, and easy and delicious fast-day recipes for breakfast, snacks, main meals, flavour bombs, drinks, weekly meal planners, calorie charts and plenty of fasting tips, this is the book to change every vegetarian's life, for good.
