Rating 1 out of 3 stars

This book is separated into three sections:

  1. “The Fast” – this section talks about what fasting is and how it came to be from biblical times.
  2. “The Focus” – this section deals with a 21 day fast schedule and give a motivational scripture for each day.
  3. “The Food.” – this section is all about the food.

The fast revolves around fruits, veggies and nuts. The recipes are easy and use use ingredients most have in their cupboards to begin with. I did taste a couple of them and while I can’t see myself eating just fruit and veggies in the long run, I see the appeal in this type of diet. The good thing about this book is that it doesn’t just give you the recipes and leave you on your own, it walks with you along the way. Feeling a bit discouraged? Just read the second part of the book and get that needed boost.

One thing I would have liked would be more pictures. I like my recipe books with pictures. There is a section in the middle that has 20 or so colour images of the food, but as someone that believes we eat with our eyes, I would have liked the pictures to at least have been on the same page as the recipe itself.
