Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is a powerhouse for healthy eating... The variety combined with the simplicity of following recipes that have done the 'Is this healthy?' guesswork for you makes this an A+ in my books. (Canadian Gift Guide 2012-05-18)

This is healthy cooking from a very different perspective: because it is first and foremost a cookbook, not a diet book, it begins and ends with enticing, easy-to-prepare recipes that make the five principles simple and doable. The diversity of the recipes in this collection offers ways to enjoy a wide variety of nutritious foods throughout the day (Food and Nutrition Magazine 2012-05-01)

The best cookbook I have ever purchased. (OC Magazine 2012-03-27)

(Editor's Pick of Week) You want to eat well but just don't know what to make. Problem solved. Camilla V. Saulsbury gives you enough choices for a year or more ... It's a way of eating everyone can live with. (Today's Diet and Nutrition Magazine 2012-04-23)

The author did a great job of amassing an excellent cross-section of recipes that are too good not to try. (Shelf Life 2012-08-00) --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

I haven't cooked much in the last three years since having a child and working full-time. My partner has never cooked in his life. Since discovering this cookbook, we've both been having fun cooking up a storm almost exclusively using this book. The recipes are straightforward, easy, healthy, and delicious--all things we were looking for. You really can't go wrong with this cookbook. Even if cookbooks seem outdated (because there are so many recipes online), this is one you will definitely get a lot of use out of.

With "5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking," Camilla Saulsbury achieved something that I once thought was impossible: She actually convinced my husband (who would live on pizza and burgers, if allowed) that healthy foods and delicious foods are not mutually exclusive things. I'd gotten used to preparing two separate dinners every night -- a healthier one for me, and a heartier one for him, but thanks to recipes such as "Cuban Chicken with Black Beans and Brown Rice,"Japanese Ginger Beef Bowls," and "Pumpkin, Sausage, and Smoked Gouda Pizza," my husband is actually enthusiastic about the prospect of eating healthy. In addition to dinners, there are recipes for breakfast, snacks, lunches, bread, and even dessert. I haven't tried any of the sweets yet, but those Cocoa Truffles made with dates are calling my name.

Almost every recipe in here has been a hit with my family. They ask for the steak tacos, tofu berry shakes, and hot shrimp noddles bowls all the time. Not a lot of fuss to prepare the recipes and I have been able to find almost everything at my local grocery store, except brown rice syrup which was down the street at the health food store.

I also thought the recipes weren't overly expensive either, in fact quite frugal. It has helped us practice portion control with only 4 servings and our family five. I "pad" the ingredients just a little to make it five servings.

We like this cookbook so much we pre-ordered her up-coming quinoa cookbook.
