One thing I really appreciated about Diane Welland's guide was that she didn't preach, and you won't come away from it feeling that it is an "all or nothing" approach. The tips she provides show how to make both large and small improvements in preparing meals and snacks - even desserts. My one small criticism was with the index. Recipes aren't always listed logically. For example, I couldn't find hummus (a recipe I knew was in the book). I finally found it listed alphabetically as "Spicy Hummus." A problem probably created by electronic indexing software rather than an error by the author. A small thing when compared to the great information this book provides.
If you aren't necessarily looking to go on a diet (which you will inevitably also come off of), but would rather just learn how to make healthy adjustments to whatever degree suits you, this is the book for you.
*Note: This review is for the kindle edition.
I did find two frustrating aspects to the cookbook that caused me to knock off a star. Both involve lazy editing and indexing. First, whenever a recipe uses another recipe from the book as an ingredient, she only gives you the chapter where you will find the other recipe, rather than the actual page number. The reader then has to either turn to the index to find the page number, or look for the chapter and then search through it for the recipe. Very lazy editing! Second, some recipes can be found by looking up the main ingredient or type of recipe, but others require the reader to know the name of the recipe. For example, you can't just look up "burrito", you have to remember that the recipe is titled "Loaded Black Bean Burrito". I'm finding this type of lazy editing and indexing in more and more cookbooks and it is aggravating.
Overall, I recommend this cookbook because of its flavorful recipes and readable information about eating clean and healthy foods.

Nothing really new here. Clearly written, but very little included that isn't common sense or already widely known. Read morePublished 1 month ago by BA
