This cookbook is not only beautiful to look at, but it provides so much practical information and so many real life strategies to help readers turn health hopes and wishes into sustainable habits. The recipes (and accompanying photos) look amazing--I can't wait to try them!--and the anecdotes from real people are very relatable. As a registered dietitian and mother of two, I know how tough it is to eat well and maintain healthful habits because of varying schedules and different tastes within the family. But this cookbook cooks up plenty of tips to please all palates to help you get dinner on the table without spending tons of time. I highly recommend this cookbook as something you'll refer to again and again, not only because it packs in so many great recipes, but because it's a great resource that can help you make better food choices when grocery shopping, and prepare meals with ease.

This book is a great start for someone who just wants to boost up healthy habits. I run 3-5 days a week but was wanting to improve eating well. This book just shows you how to incorporate whole grains and more fruits and veggies in a realistic way especially if you eat pretty well already. I have made the whole wheat pancakes, herbed chicken salad, pasta mixing half wheat and flour for starting out, and smoothies(all good). I have also made variations of some of the salads and tacos. I found it easy to change recipes, because you know what are healthy subs. I also spent about 130.00 to update my pantry with whole wheat flours, english muffins,bagles, some oils such as canola and sesame, herbs, veggies, almond milk, butter milk, greek yougurt, frozen fruit, and can beans to add to salads. These items may sound like diet foods, but not the way they are used. I cook a lot from Barfoot Contessa and oh yes! Paula Dean, but if you are someone who eats in moderation and has balanced meals you will see how easy these things are to use and taste good and fresh.I love the break down of whole grains and ways to get it, most of the suggestions are sitting in walmart on the rice isle. I would also recomend Cooking Light Real Family. (I also used Hodgson Mill Insta-Bake mix whole wheat to make oatmeal and rasin cookies and that is a great start with the family.)

This is a great book and I would give it five stars if it had clearly said for beginners or getting started. I love the layout, recipes and advice, but the advice was not new to me. I do not fault the book for this and I did see that some of the other reviewers said it was for beginners. Since I am fairly new to healthy eating I thought it still provide good information and while it did, not really much new information for me.

This is not a cookbook it is a healthy eating lifestyle book, not a diet book. If you are looking to change you eating lifestyle then this is a great book to start with. It is easy to read, beautiful pictures and gives just enough information not to overwhelm a person. It is simple enough to make a person feel like taking on the task of moving towards a healthy lifestyle is actually doable.

Great book and I recommend it to anyone who is beginning the journey to an healthy lifestyle, not diet, lifestyle.

My husband and I were listening to Doctor Radio while on a road trip and the lady who wrote this book was being interviewed. She had great information and we ordered it online while we were driving. It was waiting on our doorstep when we got home and we were really getting some useful information from it. Then two weeks later, I made the final transition to vegan so some it no longer applies to me but we still refer to it all the time, especially for my husband and kids!

The Healthy Habits Cookbook is a wonderful book, full of ideas to help keep me on track to a healthier lifestyle. Every recipe I have tried has been delicious and I have found the helpful hints throughout to have been right on target as to how one can make healthier choices in the midst of a busy lifestyle. The Get Cooking section is full of wonderful ideas, such as the 20 essential ingredients to have on hand to make the task of cooking at home easier. Janet Helm, you are a genius! Thank you and Cooking Light for collaborating on this fantastic guide to a healthier, happier lifestyle!
