Finally, a book to tell us what we should be eating every day to stay healthy instead of the latest trend that caters to a particular food group and quick results. The key is to have lasting results by understanding what is and is not good for your body.

I recommend buying 2 copies of this book. One to keep at home for the wonderful recipes and one to take with you every time you go food shopping or eat out. This book answered every question I have about how to feed my family healthy and delicious foods. It will provide you with the insight on how to shop for the most nutritious foods and what to look at on the food labels. Not only are the recipes healthy, but they are delicious, easy to make, and offer suggestions on variations to meet your personal tastes.

This book also offers recommendations on the foods you should and should not be feeding your children and many ideas on how to make them healthy eaters throughout their lifetime. Due to the appetizing recipes and overall nutritional recommendations, I intend to share this book with every member of my family.

This book has quickly become one of our favorites. Recipes are clearly written and not overly complicated. The nutrition information given for each recipe makes it easy to incorporate into our Weight Watchers routine. Some folks may not be familiar with tomatillos, but you must try the delightful Tomatillo-Avocado sauce (p. 174), which is scrumptious with crab cakes and everything else! We have found that the seasonings are on the mild side - if you enjoy herbs and spices you may want to increase the recommended amounts in the recipes.

Let me start by saying that I love this book! I'm not calling it a cookbook because it is so much more than that. It is also an easy to understand nutritional reference.

I do not have high cholesterol, nor does my husband or children, but I stumbled on this book and it quickly grabbed me. Anyone and everyone can benefit from following a heart-healthy diet.

The recipes are fantastic. Some of my family's favorites are: Black Bean Soup, Crab Cakes with tomatillo-avacado sauce, Sesame coated Yellowfin Tuna, Lupita's Lemon Chicken, Chicken Fajitas with homemade guacamole, Buffalo Burgers, and Cashew Chicken. I've made several wonderful vegetable and salad recipes as well. The desserts are delicious AND heart-healthy!

The book also helps me with making food choices when I need to pack processed snacks for my kids or when desperate measures call for fast food. The nutritional information that I gained from this book is invaluable. A MUST READ!

This book is set up in an engaging, straight-forward manner and is easily utilized by those with both a lot of background and those with relatively little. It is comprehensive, has a respectful and upbeat tone and is filled with ideas which are very achieveable. The recipes are a bonus -- so far every item tried has been delicious. A real hit at our house.

This book has a very good introduction on how to change the way you cook and eat. The recipes are simple and easy to prepare. Basically shows how to replace high calorie ingredients with low-fat, non-fat ingredients. Quite good overall.

Well, being a French trained cook, I didn't believe there was life without butter, creme fraiche, or triple cream cheese. A wake-up call of high cholesterol made me look for a tool to help reduce my numbers.

This appealing book has certainly helped me change my lifestyle into a healthier one. Her book, with excellent food resources and recipes has kept me interested and satiated for over a year! I have dropped 50 points and plan on giving a copy to my primary care physician for her office. I don't even miss those high fat ingredients of yesteryear. (ok, maybe a little!) Thanks, Catherine for your creativity and meticulous and delectable recipes. I await volume 2!

Following the advice in this book reduced my total cholesterol by 30 points, and my waistline by 15 pounds! No other book has been able to deliver like this one. I'm never bored by the recipes, and Jones makes it easy to shop, eat, and live a healthy life. Totally delectable and worth every penny.
