"The Real Meal Revolution" - Noakes, Proudfoot, Creed.



"The Real Meal Revolution" - Noakes, Proudfoot, Creed.

So excited, my book arrived yesterday via "Booktopia"!

(I am already au fait with doing low carb, high fat and in fact am underfat and bordering underweight for my age, so don't need to lose any more weight!)
But the recipes!!!! :)
"The only thing in the book that irks me past anything in this book is calling koalas 'bears', and lumping them into the bear family. 
The koala is an arboreal herbivorous marsupial native to Australia. It is the only extant representative of the family Phascolarctidae, and its closest living relatives are the wombats. Not only that, the insistence that they eat eucalyptus leaves is that is because that they have always done. Hmmmm, they also have rudimentary canine teeth, which hints to me that in the past they may have in the past at least been omnivores.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koala (and this is by-the-by: No, koalas do not get *stoned* on eucalypt leaves. Eucalypt leaves are very low in energy, hence the koala is not particularly active and sleeps a lot. I used to work with these gorgeous creatures.)
For a book written by a scientist, they should have got that right!!"
And made me go "oh-oh, if this is wrong what else have they got wrong?"
Anyway, I digress:
