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!

I absolutely love the recipe where you make a cake shape out of a three-inch slice
of watermelon and you cover it with whipped topping. It is delicious and very creative. This book has some of the best recipes around, especially if you like
fruits and vegetables; which I do. The book arrived right on time and is in good
condition. Whenever I ride public transportation I bring it with me and read it on
the way. The book is just the right size to fit into my purse.

I borrowed this book from the library and it was just OK. I didn't find any recipes I really liked, most of them were pretty simple just with added fruits and vegetables.
