I only received the book two days ago, so I haven't tried the recipes. They look like recipes the average person can make without too much difficulty. Because chicken is considered a more easily digestible protein than other meats, there are several recipes with it. I have perused the marinade section alone and can have chicken with a different marinade for many nights before any one recipe gets old.
Overall, I think this is an excellent book especially for those of us who don't want to live on protein shakes and bars forever after surgery. This book is for you if you want a variety of recipes and helpful tips for surviving the post-surgery phase.
I bought this book to help me through this surgery that I had to help me maintain my portions as well as for making good choices.
