Written by nutritionist Jonny Bowden and whole foods cook Jeannette Bessinger, this cookbook features quick, healthy recipes that don't use processed foods. It includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as snacks and desserts, plus a meatless section for vegetarian recipes. The one recipe I've tried so far, Tilapia With Lemony Tomatoes, was great (I substituted olive oil for the macadamia nut oil, and minced garlic from a jar instead of fresh garlic because those are what I had on hand). There are many more recipes I will try from this cookbook including Jalapeno Cornbread Chili, Black Bean Salad, fajitas, and Honey Drumsticks With Cayenne. For the most part, the ingredients seem to be those that can be found in regular grocery stores or if not, could be easily substituted. Some of the things I like about this cookbook are the color photos, nutritional tips and food facts scattered throughout, and that some of the recipes are intentionally doubled so that half can be frozen for another meal. Mostly I like that the recipes really are quick and easy while being healthy and full of flavor. I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited nor was a positive review required.
