Review

"Andrew Weil has done it again! His recipes are informative, easy, nutritious, interesting, and fun. I love this book; it is a must for anyone who wants to eat delicious food that is healthy too."―Nora Pouillon, owner of Restaurant Nora and author of Cooking with Nora and My Organic Life

"While I often appreciate pushing the envelope as it relates to technique, we must never lose sight of why we cook: to nourish and make people happy. Dr. Weil's Fast Food, Good Food will help you and your family make food memories by balancing nourishment with joy and excitement."―Thomas Keller, Chef/Proprietor, The French Laundry

"Eating healthy can be oh-so-hard when the prospect of delivery seems both faster and easier. But with Dr. Andrew Weil's new book, you'll have 150 fast ways to get nutritious food in your belly."
Amanda Woerner, Daily Burn

"Cooking need not be arduous, especially with Dr. Andrew Weil by your side. His new book...reminds us that cooking can be fun, fast and fulfilling....In a friendly and easygoing tone that makes this cookbook a joy to read, Dr. Weil also shares helpful tips on pantry essentials and maximizing your kitchen's efficiency. Just what the doctor ordered."
Alan W. Petrucelli, Examiner

"This isn't a book for the coffee table, although the photographs are vibrant and beautiful to flip through. Dr. Andrew Weil's latest cookbook is meant for the kitchen. The simple, no-fuss recipes are approachable for even the most amateurish of cooks, but the food is exquisite....Fast Food, Good Food doesn't preach, it teaches you everything from how to use those kitchen tools that sit in your drawers to how to stock your pantry--a first step when adopting healthy eating habits."―Angela Carlos, The Daily Meal

I have always liked Doc Weil, he has such a great "bedside manner" when talking about nutrition. Eschewing hype and fads, he uses a common sense (and taste-centric!) approach to healthy eating.

The Good Doctor is well known for his support for a an anti-inflammatory diet- as he says "It is becoming increasingly clear that chronic inflammation is the root cause of many serious illnesses - including heart disease, many cancers, and Alzheimer's disease. We all know inflammation on the surface of the body as local redness, heat, swelling and pain. It is the cornerstone of the body's healing response, bringing more nourishment and more immune activity to a site of injury or infection. But when inflammation persists or serves no purpose, it damages the body and causes illness. Stress, lack of exercise, genetic predisposition, and exposure to toxins (like secondhand tobacco smoke) can all contribute to such chronic inflammation, but dietary choices play a big role as well. Learning how specific foods influence the inflammatory process is the best strategy for containing it and reducing long-term disease risks."

But don't worry, with such tasty choices as salmon Niçoise ; linguine with clams; and dark chocolate date and nut truffles- you won't even know you're eating healthy! Not to mention, he has a number of cocktail recipes including Cortes Island Caesar, a version of a Bloody Mary, and Vermont Bluegrass, a shaken bourbon cocktail.

Of course, there are veggie options, and kale figures in (OK, we can't agree on everything, and I hate kale) for those on a non-meat diet.

It's not a 'diet"- it's a lifestyle change!

I am so excited as I go through this new cookbook. The recipes are so beautiful and inspiring. I love that I can make everything in this book. I don't need to be a graduate from a culinary school. The recipes are simple and doable. The ingredients are healthy and nutrient dense. I love the pantry essentials and quick tips in the front of the book and the basic recipes in the back. It gives me a good arsenal of things to have on hand to make weekday cooking more efficient. I also think the book will make a great holiday gift for anyone who loves fast good food.

My husband and I have been trying to eat healthier and I needed cooking ideas. First of all, the book is beautiful to look through...outstanding photography. There are pictures of most recipes. I've tried many of the recipes, and they're really delicious. I've made the Yucatan Black Bean and Sweet Potato Tostadas twice, the Vegetable Frittata twice, the Basic French Vinaigrette a lot. My dishes have even looked like the pictures. Also, I live in Montana; we don't have odd or unusual ingredients available. I haven't found any weird ingredients so far. All directions have been clear, and dishes are easy to make. I wouldn't say they are super fast meals, but if you're dealing with veggies there is a little more prep. I'm thrilled with this book...can't wait to try more of the recipes.

Happily this is another beautiful beautiful book from Dr. Weil, and its charm truly lies in its simplicity. He begins with what are often humble ingredients and elevates them with just the right touch of spices, herbs, or the flavor lift of acid. The techniques are straightforward and accessible for any cook, and the vibrant flavors are the perfect reward with little time invested. The Pantry Essentials section is a welcome reminder about the value of well stocked cupboards, especially when time in the kitchen is limited. This is another book to cook my way through!

Dr. Weil delivers another outstanding book, this time, straight from his kitchen. The recipes are accessible for the average cook and challenges the advanced cook to keep it simple yet bursting with flavor. The bonus in each recipe is that they are loaded with anti-inflammatory ingredients, marrying nutritious and delicious.

I'm always looking inspiration and for ways to save time in the kitchen. Many of the recipes have less than 10 ingredients and many that I keep in stock. Simple, Nourishing, Fast Food!

I was thrilled to see that Andrew Weil has produced a cookbook which is characteristic of the practical advice that he gives. After a long day at work, I am always looking for easy way to make healthy and flavorful meals. Weil’s book is the solution. In the internet age, I look for a book that can be my “go to.” With many, not just the usual two or three recipes,” that I would cook, this book has been added to my cookbook shelf…. I am choosing between the Tuscan bean soup with Farro and Swiss Chard and the Vegetable minestrone with Qunoa for tonight.

Some amazing recipes. So many wonderful recipes for soups, salads just don't know if I where I want to start (and I don't cook much but am excited to do just that with this new book!). I eat gluten free and his key at top of each recipe tells you who the recipe is suited for and ways to make it, say gluten free, if you need it to be. From the Greek-Style Kale Salad to the Korean Kimchi Soup with Tofu and Vegetable, so many fabulous choices! Basic, healthy and easy to make. Very happy with purchase. May buy a copy for my son and his girlfriend.
