4-0 out of 5 stars Every diabetic should own a copy
Good recipes that anyone will eat. Diabetics want tasty food like the rest of us. This is food that all of us will enjoy. I highly recommend this for anyone who has a diabetic family member.

Excellent choice, very informative for the somewhat "diabetes illerate". I will be using it often for my recently diagnosed husband's mealplanning and plan to send a copy to my son (who was also recently diagnosed with Type2 diabetes.

I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.

3-0 out of 5 stars TOO COMPLICATED
WAY TOO COMPLICATED DIET TO FOLLOW
5-0 out of 5 stars common sense or not?
I lost 5lbs the first 2 weeks. I regularly eat very heathy, but need to exercise more(or at all), so i was suprised that i lost the 5lbs just from eating a little healthier and have managed to keep it off. I think it is a good book if you are interested in learning better eating habbits, if you eat poorly. Alot of it is common sense about portion size and eating the right foods for your body to function properly. I don't think you need all the suppliments that she wants you to take, a good multivitamin doesn't hurt though. I didn't follow through after the two weeks because of my schedule, but i do plan to give the rest of it a shot. I think if you need something to jump start you to eat healthy and get rid of all the junk you eat than this is a good way to go. If you really like your junk food than this book is not for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars This is a real life-changer!
I've tried them all, every diet that is. Not only have I tried a lot of diets to lose weight, I've also worked with other books on eating to control inflammation. This is a great approach. I feel and look the best I've felt in years. The proof has been in testing the foods in my own body. I feel MUCH better and I'm finally losing weight after 2 years of chronic fatique and puzzling weight-gain in spite of eating a healthy diet and taking a lot of the right supplements. You can use the tables to change your current eating and food purchasing habits if following the diet plan isn't for you. That's what I did and it worked like a charm. I own a fitness club and am very familiar with everything out there. This is a gem. Buy it and use it. Eliminate the more inflammatory foods you currently eat and spike your diet with powerful anti-inflammatory foods and see what happens!

4-0 out of 5 stars Take it on faith, it might help.
I purchased this book because I knew that inflammation theory has a lot of credibility with Andrew Weil and some others in the medical community at present.A limitation of the book is that the reader is not told in any detail how the inflammation index that is so central to the plan is derived.Taking it on faith, I tried it and it did reveal some things: for example, a personal preference for fruit and whole-grains over vegetables that almost certainly was not an entirely good thing. It does give you a way to quantify those kinds of things, and it would be hard to imagine how it could be misused unless someone tried to slather huge quantities of anti-inflammatory curry and ginger on top of an unhealthy diet.All in all, a provocative book that doesn't contradict common-sense good principles of diet and will likely improve your diet and make you healthier if you take the trouble to do the math. Also, the recipes are good.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good dietary recommendations, but not quite the whole picture
This book offers up sound dietary advice.Foods are rated according to a formula that predicts how inflammatory they are to your body.The formula is not specified, although the factors that are considered are listed.I would have liked more information as to how much weight was given to the various nutrients and why. Information not contained in the USDA food database wasn't included in the formula.Therefore, a number of factors, such micronutrients, pesticide residues, etc. are not addressed. The inflammatory effects of eating charbroiled foods or deep fried foods are not discussed. This is an interesting attempt at quantifying the anti-inflammatory and inflammatory qualities of most common foods, and for the most part is quite helpful. ... Read more

Unlike other reviewers, I was unfamiliar with the editors of this cookbook.Bought it because of the cheesecake on the cover!
5-0 out of 5 stars Best light cookbook ever
I have to admit I am not a fan of "light" cooking or the manymagazines out there; I am also a huge fan of the whole "Cooks Illustrated" books and magazine, so I loved this book. Most low fat and/or low calorie recipes rely on "light" or artifical products to cut calories.This book does not, it adheres to the high standard of Cook's Illustrated recipes. The recipes are not the most low fat or calorie possible, but each is delicious and most importantly works like they say it will. This is also the first oftheir books to provide full nutritional counts.There are the usual detailed explanations of what works and what doesn't so you know exactly why this recipe is going to work.Everything I've tried has been fabulous.

5-0 out of 5 stars The cookbook I've been waiting for!
So far, I've enjoyed every recipe I've tried in the book. Low-fat blueberry muffins to me taste even better than the original, because they're less greasy. And they're vastly improved from the hockey puck, low-fat muffins I've made in the past. You'll often have to do a little extra work with the recipes -- this is from Cook's Illustrated, after all, not Betty Crocker. But paired with thoughtful illustrations, buying guides, and taste tests for low-fat products, these recipes are a must-have. ... Read more

Editorial Review

"Gourmet raw cuisine"--if that sounds like an oxymoron, you'll be amazed by the creativity of the recipes in this book. Every food is "live" (uncooked) in these vegetarian recipes from Juliano, the raw-food guru of Los Angeles. Juliano believes that fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains, beans, and seeds in their rawest and purest form are the most nourishing foods. If your imagination stops at alfalfa sprouts and grated carrots, hold onto your cutting board. Juliano's recipes include Butternut Squash Soup, New Moon Fruit Stew, Thai Green Papaya Salad, Living Buckwheat Pizza Crust, Mango Essene Bread, Mock Salmon Sushi, Raw Spring Rolls, seven varieties of burritos, nine varieties of pizza, and nine unusual smoothies. Desserts? Try EZ Pudding (made with maple syrup, avocados, and carob powder) or Cashew Gelato (cashew butter, maple syrup, and almonds, served frozen). There are also condiments, dressings, and sauces, and plenty of information about preparing raw foods, including how to soak and sprout beans, grains, seeds, and nuts. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Fun, flashy, but difficult
I am relatively new at being (mostly) "raw." For the past couple of months I've been exploring raw foods, trying out different books, online sources, etc (and feeling quite healthy, by the way). Juliano certainly has his niche in this raw world, but he's not for everyone. He is a colorful, flamboyant personality with a passion for raw foods, and his enthusiasm is infectious. I love his writing style, and I think he'd be a blast at a party. BUT this "uncook book" is not for beginners, nor "real" people who want fast, simple, do-able recipes. He's a restauranteur, hence the foods he makes need to be flashy. They take MANY ingredients (many of them are exotic, hard to find, hard to pronounce!), lots of prep time, and while I have certainly enjoyed reading this gorgeous, glossy book (which I got from the library), I am not finding myself making too many of these recipes. Just too difficult. When I look at a recipe that takes 14 ingredients (and serves 2) I'm just not gonna make it... I would, however, love to visit his restaurant next time I'm in California!

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent gourmet raw diet book
Although I do not strictly practice a raw food regmimen at all times, this book helps tremendously by providing tasty ways to make the diet more rich and palatable over time.

If you're a fan of WW, you should love this book.It was written before any of the POINTS systems, so you have to do some calculations on your own.The nutrition info is provided for each recipe.This book is an especially good value because as another reviewer noted, for each main recipe, you get additional recipes provide a day's worth of meals.
1-0 out of 5 stars Not the book for my family
Way too many of the recipes in this book have ingredients I have never heard of!Also, the ingredient lists are often very long.I am donating my copy to the public library and will use "The Moms' Guide to Meal Makeovers" and "Quick Meals for Healthy Kids and Busy Parents" to help me provide sensible meals for my family.

3-0 out of 5 stars would not be 1st choice
Be careful if you take this book into the kitchen. It is printed on the cheapest of papers and tears and damages easily if it gets wet. The recipes are o.k.; the information is o.k., although conflicts with some information in her Coconut Diet book, but nothing very interesting or inspirational is shared.

2-0 out of 5 stars Missing Information
I bought this book to add juice to my diet as well as for a juice fast to detox. However, this book is missing important information on this topic.This book is very helpful for ADDING more juice to your diet, but it doesn't cover the necessary information on a strict juice diet commonly used for cleansing (detoxing), illness, and weight loss.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very informative...well laid out & easy to read
This book is EXCELLENT and one which I highly recommend. Yes...it's from 1992 but it all still stands true. The one thing about eating this type of food/juice and eating this way in general is that the underlying benefits and facts don't change. It certainly is not a fad but based on principles that stand the test of time. You can buy a book on this subject that is 50 years old or one that is brand new...they will say pretty much the same thing. This book is very well laid out tho' and is packed with a wealth of information. It points out the benefits of juicing and what each vegetable and fruit is good for...and how to drink them, along with some excellent recipes. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED! ... Read more

Editorial Review

Betty Crocker is on the health bandwagon. Not one for fads, Betty sensibly bases this 175-recipe cookbook on the Food Guide Pyramid guidelines recommended by the American Heart Association and many other medical and nutrition professional organizations. You learn tips for cutting down on fat and cholesterol, understanding the different kinds of fat, and making smart food choices for heart health. The idea is to reduce fat by making ingredient substitutions and small alterations, but not making drastic changes. The recipes are varied and creative and don't resemble "diet food": Ginger Shrimp Kabobs, Vegetable Potstickers, Stuffed Veal Chops with Cider Sauce, Vegetable and Ham Jambalaya, Curried Chicken and Nectarines, Caribbean Fish Salad, and Thai Shrimp and Rice Noodle Nests. The desserts include Chocolate Swirl Cheesecake with Raspberry Topping (only 20 percent fat!), Blueberry-Lime Torte (about 15 percent fat), and Double Chocolate-Date Cake (about 25 percent fat). Recipes are labeled with symbols indicating "low-calorie," "low-fat," "moderate-fat," "low-cholesterol," and "moderate-cholesterol," so you can choose how far you want to go. Each recipe has a hefty amount of nutritional information: calories, fat, saturated fat, cholesterol, carbohydrate, fiber, protein, vitamins A and C, calcium, iron, and diet exchanges. Cooks who love knowing what the dishes should look like will enjoy the 45 mouth-watering color photos. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars not for me
I was hoping for something with easy recipes that the whole family could enjoy together, but this is not it. A lot of the recipes are really unsuited for babies, and they instead give "baby" versions at the end that consist of reserving one of the ingredients (e.g., brown rice) and pureeing it plain--not exactly nutritious. (These are often followed by "children's" versions that necessitate picking out selected ingredients that may--or may not--appeal to kids.) There are too many grain-based recipes for my taste (deep-fried millet croquettes...red bean quinoa chili) and a lot of nuts (bad for babies), sea vegetables and permutations of soy (tofu, tempeh, tamari) which I personally am not interested in serving due to all the recent scrutiny of soy products as hormone disruptors (also a possible allergen for babies). It is really sort of an Asian-inspired/macrobiotic vegetarian cookbook (Tempeh Bacon is one of the recipes). "Whole Foods," in my mind, should feature fresh, minimally processed, natural, localized ingredients, but this seems to require endless trips to the health food store to purchase products such as seitan and kudzu. There is a lot of great nutritional information at the beginning of the book discussing babies and breastfeeding mothers, and some seemingly good sugar-free desserts, but I am sort of disappointed that the majority of the recipes are not palatable for the whole family (or easily modifed so that older babies can enjoy what everyone else gets).

5-0 out of 5 stars Very comprehensive
"Feeding the Whole Family" by Cynthia Lair really is for the WHOLE family - and that includes infants and young children. Lair, a certified Health and Nutrition Counselor, devotes a whole chapter on starting your baby on solid foods. From there, she gives practical tips and advice on how to attract your children to healthy food. Lair also discusses the importance of whole, organic foods and well-balanced meals.
5-0 out of 5 stars Yummy for Your Lactobacilli
In the foreword by Annemarie Colbin, CHES, of The Natural Gourmet Cookery School in NYC, there is the suggestion that shifts in customs around eating have contributed to the breakdown of our society, "could it be that by our dietary customs- consumption of unnatural foods and large amounts of meat and milk from animals raised on antibiotics and hormones-we are building a new kind of human being, one that has little connection with the healthier ways of the past?"I'd have to say... No.I don't see that as being a simple cause and effect, but I'm with her in spirit.I'd see both our diets and our lifestyles as being downstream effects of animals living in a very different kind of environment than the one we spent the overwhelming majority of our species-span evolving in.It doesn't matter whether she overstates the case or not, the bottom-line is still correct, we are Paleolithic hominids with Paleolithic-tuned bodies stranded without our tribes, alone in our urban institutions.By finding ways to recreate customs that resonate with a deeper part of our evolutionary past, we stand to not only enrich our lives but also improve our physical and mental health.

3-0 out of 5 stars Ayurvedic Cooking for Westerners
I found this book disappointing, and much prefer her previous book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Guide, OK recipes
This book is interesting to read and great help in deciding what to eat to balance your vikrities (imbalances).You start out learning some Ayurvedic basics and then you can test yourself to find out what your dosha (constitution) is.Then you learn what foods and tastes agrivate or calm that dosha.It tells you a little bit about what the symptoms of an imbalance might be, but I got more descriptive information about that on the Internet.One reason I like this book is because me and my fiance are different constitutions, and this book tells us which foods will calm/ balance us both.There are simple instructions on most recipes that explain how to modify the recipe so that it suits a person with a different constitution.It also has codes for what seasons to eat what food, and every chapter or so has interesting blurbs about different foods and philosophies.That part I enjoy.And from my experience, Ayurveda WORKS.Fast and precisely.4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful!
This was one of the cookbooks used as reference for a six hour introductory workshop on Ayurveda that I attended. I had a chance to leaf through it, along with three other cookbooks, and this one seemed to be the most useful with a good background included on the basic concepts of ayurveda. I have USED it! As anyone who has a cookbook collection will recognize, this is the ultimate recommendation! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars You've got to read this book!
I received this book as a gift. There are quite a few books on this subject on the market and this one is the best. I too could not put it down and finished it in 3 days. It's a huge book, a great resource that is well researched and written.. I have a few friends who've purchased this book and really loved it too. I can highly recommend this book.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great Book for Anyone Who Wants To Learn To Cook On a Budget
I have to disagree with FrootSmoothie's opinion that some of the recipes in this book are "silly."I have now had this book for 6 years and even though I am no longer in college, I use this book almost every day.I needed to be told how long to hard-boil an egg, and I just recently learned how to poach eggs using the recipe in this book.For people that haven't cooked much, if at all, this book is a life-saver.
5-0 out of 5 stars Perfect for non-cooks!!
I absolutely love this book... The title - Quick.Cheap.Easy. is perfectly accurate. I am definitely a non-cook but this book makes it easy to cook interesting new meals without having to buy a ton of ingredients for one meal and without having to devote your day to it. I've tried 5 different recipes so far and each one of them has been a hit; this stuff is good! I definitely recommend this to those who are trying to learn to cook; this is a perfect first step. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful ayurveda book but just average cookbook.
I was excited to get this book. Read it attentively and tried two of the recipies. Kitchari for Vata and Spicy Vegetable Fried Rice. The explaination by Vasant Lad was good and detail. I like it very much. As for the recipies, they smells superb but are tasteless. I still recomend this book for those who like to learn to cook a ayurvedic balanced food. But if you are looking into cooking a delicious mouth watering meal. This is not the book. Still an excellent ayurvedic book.

4-0 out of 5 stars Sometimes the recipes need modification
My main complaint is that some of the recipes create absolute mush. I found that it helped if I reduced the water in some of the recipes (for example for Kitchari, I used 5 cups of water instead of the recommended 6 cups) and/or washing/soaking the rice or beans only briefly instead of overnight. This may be because I live at sea level (?) but some of the recipes seemed to err in favor of cooking too long in too much water.
5-0 out of 5 stars an excellent guidebook for healthy living
This is a book by Vasant Lad and his wife.They give easy to follow guidelines on the best foods for your body type, along wtih great recipes.I have tried a few so far, and all are excellent.The explanations for each recipe are very detailed and informative, and accurately give the best types for the recipe.

4-0 out of 5 stars A good edition to our weight loss libraries.
The Insulin Resistance Diet contains some very worthwhile suggestions. Limiting our carbohydrate intake to two 15 gram servings every two hours, and always eating 7 grams of protein with our carbohydrates, is an excellent suggestion to reduce the glycemic impact of our diet.
4-0 out of 5 stars Great book for women with PCOS
This is a very helpful book for women that have been diagnosed with PCOS caused by insulin resistance.The diet posed by Dr. Hart is practical and fairly easy to follow.I would recommend the book to all who suffer from insulin resistance.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, something that makes sense!
I bought this book a few days ago and have read it about three times already!I have suffered from hypoglycemia all my life. I'm not terribly overweight, about 20 pounds maybe. I've tried low-fat high carbohydrate, low carb diets, the South Beach Diet.This is such an EASY way to eat!I have not had one hypoglycemic incident since I started eating this way, and I usually have one a day at least.I have known for a long time (through many years of trial and error), that I have to eat anything with sugar with a meal or it triggers a hypoglycemic episode.Well, this book tells me exactly what ratio or carbohydrates to protein I should eat to keep this from happening!Just the thought that I can have whatever I want, as long as I keep the carbohydrate grams and protein grams balanced, is wonderful!Also, I am one of those who always ate in defense mode. I was terrified of being caught somewhere without food and having a hypoglycemic attack, so I would eat before going somewhere, even if I wasn't hungry.Now, I know that won't happen anymore, and I am finally free from worrying about food all the time.I can't say enough good things about this approach.Obviously I haven't lost any weight in only three days, at least not that I can tell, but I feel so much better already.That alone made it worth buying the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must-have!
I borrowed this book from my local library, to test a few of the recipes.I am very impressed!Every recipe that I've tried has turned out absolutely delicious!The book begins with an informative section about the meanings behind the buzz word "organic," and the recipes are neatly organized according to age (in case one needs a guideline).The author has even included little labels that point out which recipes are vegan, vegetarian, and allergy friendly.
5-0 out of 5 stars Easy and informative
I bought this book along with Baby Blender Food,and I really like this one the best.It has practical informationRE: safe food handling, the meaning behind nutritional and organic terms on product packaging, suggestions for stocking your pantry, and ideas about how to incorporate meals for the family fromthe recipes for the baby.It's not rocket science,but sometimes I get caught up in the baby food process and don't think about how to modify some of the ingredients for my own meal.She also has a helpful key that lists vegetarian,vegan, gluten-free recipe options.The recipes are pretty simple,and I've found that it's easy and funto make food for my son.It also feels really good to know exactly what's going into his food.I like the layout of the book,and I appreciate the information in it. Another review mentioned that she doesn't outline food hazards like nitrates in the body of the recipes, but if you read the book fromthe beginning,she has pretty comprehensive explanations of what is safe to prepare and when it's safe to prepare it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Raising a future "foodie"
I've had a chance to make zucchini and butternut squash purees for my 6 month-old and so far so good!I like that the recipies give you an option for how to cook each recipie, for example, you can either steam or microwave zucchini.Also, you can use a blender or food processer for most dishes.The book also gives really clear instructions for saving food for later.I put the squash in ice cube trays; it is so easy to pop a "cube" into the microwave.If you have an automatic ice maker and don't have any ice cube trays on hand, I highly recommend buying silicone trays.You can even buy pink ones from Sur La Table (www.surlatable.com).Cubes come out cleanly with no fragments left in the tray.Get this cookbook if you want a little work on the weekend with the rest of the week as easy as opening a jar!The only down side I can think of is she is not as explicit about foods to avoid because of allergies or nitrates (spinach, carrots, etc.) on the recipe pages. ...
