Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Dieticians and health advocates continue to urge people to incorporate more fruits and vegetables into their diets. Thanks to modern transportation, Americans no longer have to endure winters with only root vegetables and other canned and frozen produce. Vegetables and fruits arrive daily in supermarkets from Florida, California, and South America. Elizabeth Pivonka and Barbara Berry follow the health establishment's recommendation that people consume five servings a day of fruits and vegetables. In 5 a Day: The Better Health Cookbook, they explain the myriad benefits and disease protections offered by fruit and vegetable consumption. Then they show how to use these fruits and vegetables as part of a daily diet. Realists, they do not shun meat entirely, but they explain how to supplement animal products to achieve nutritional goals in all parts of the meal: appetizer, main course, and dessert. Mark Knoblauch

A great recipe book to get those extra fruits and vegetables in your diet. Well written, nice layout with some wonderful, mouthwatering pictures. Some delicious recipes that aren't quite the ordinary, but yet aren't so different you're afraid to try them....or can't find the ingredients. Highly recommended!
