Praise for IF IT MAKES YOU HEALTHY:

"More personal and more enlightening than the typical celebrity cookbook, this health-focused collection from Sheryl Crow and her personal chef is a refreshing addition to an increasingly crowded field. When the singer-songwriter was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, she reassessed her eating habits, which consisted of on-the-run tuna sandwiches and catered dressing-room food. The self-admitted noncook consulted with a nutritionist and hired chef Chuck White to cook for her on the road. This collection of recipes represents his greatest hits—a warm hummus soup with cilantro pesto and garlic pita chips, and a tuna salad freshened up with green apple. Though Crow has not adopted a vegan lifestyle, many of these dishes are meatless, emphasizing colorful vegetables and fresh preparations. Exotic inventions include a sophisticated spin on peanut butter and jelly that incorporates cashew butter and fruit. Other dishes swap out ingredients to make comfort foods more wholesome and nutritious: a vegan reuben made with "corned beef seitan" and a chocolate mousse made from whipped avocado. Crow's nutritionist, Rachel Beller, offers tips throughout to educate readers. White's easy-to-follow recipes, coupled with Crow's down-to-earth narrative, make their collaboration a successful duet."
--Publishers Weekly

"The popular singer joins forces with her personal chef to share nutritious, seasonal dishes.

Crow remembers the delicious “Midwestern fare” her mother served when she was growing up, but as a busy, successful artist, her diet consisted of dressing-room junk food and room service. A breast cancer diagnosis in 2006 became the life-altering “game-changer” that spurred her to adopt a diet rich in sustainable, organic foods. Joined by her longtime personal chef Chuck White, the cookbook’s multifaceted recipe sections are grouped by seasons: Items like stuffed avocados, Southern Cobb Salad, Pecan-Crusted Trout and Lemon-Vanilla Panna Cotta are spring and summer tour favorites, while winter months spent in the studio feature Warm Hummus Soup, Barley and Vegetable Risotto, Five-Spiced Pork Tenderloin and her Mom’s Reconstructed Chili. Many of the recipes are supplemented by Crow and White’s smart, appealing cooking and food recommendations (ceviche, country ham, quinoa), along with quick factoids on everything from wasabi to grass-fed beef from Crow’s former dietitian Rachel Beller. Crow doesn’t deny herself the “10 percent cheat zone” and guiltlessly indulges in desserts like Vegan Chocolate-Mint Brownies and Banana Bread Pudding. Each section is clear and well organized, accented by generous photographs of the finished products and of Crow in the kitchen, on the road and alongside her two adopted sons.

Brimming with easy, nourishing recipes, food tips and personal anecdotes, Crow’s recipe book should garner new appreciation from fans, foodies and cancer survivors."
--Kirkus

Ok - so this book has nice recipes - I like the fact that we're being healthy, organic, etc. However, there are some drawbacks. A lot of the recipes take a lot of time. I am currently on hour 2 of making the shitake sesame grit cakes, which are supposed to be just a side dish! Who has two hours to make a side dish?! Sheryl also comments on how she loves this recipe because it is gluten free. I have Celiac Disease, and this recipe is NOT gluten free. It calls for soy sauce which is made from wheat (Tamari is the GF substitute). I know that doesn't effect many of us, but it could make some people sick, and this book is supposed to be about about being healthy. So far, I would say the recipes have been good, but more difficult or time consuming than they should be.

Sheryl and her chef, Chuck were on the Today Show this week and I was so impressed with the recipes they were making I ordered the book. I am undergoing treatment for breast cancer and it impressed me that she had gone to the effort to ensure that what she was putting into her body from now on would be healthy. The book contains such great recipes and is so well explained that even if you are not the greatest in the kitchen you can do it! Thanks to Sheryl and Chuck for the book.

I love this cookbook. After getting it in the mail on Saturday...I have been cooking from it nonstop. The edamame and corn succotash, the fish, the amazing sandwich called a One Eyed Cyclops...yummy and delicious. The ideas within this book are that food should be as organic as you can make it, fresh and local. I loved the fruit and veggie chart that clearly showed what foods are readily available during each month of the year. The recipes are simple and clear and easy to follow. Tips are given. Explanations are provided. This is a book that will help you to eat foods that are known to help you maintain a healthy body.

I purchased this book because the recipes looked so yummy and I'm very interested in good healthy food. I love cookbooks and healthy cooking with real food. I don't like processed junk either. I want to be able to find a way to eat what I like but still be svelte. The older I get, the harder this is, I'll be honest! I have to work really hard to stay fit and trim. This book has absolutely wonderful recipes in it. A few of them are fairly complicated but most everything is very simple although there are several ingredients in each which does require a good bit of planning and list making. But part of eating healthy is enjoying shopping for healthy foods. One thing I really wish the book contained is the calorie content per serving of each recipe. I was disappointed that they did not include this because I like to keep my calorie count under control. Other than that, this book is worth getting and it's better than most other cookbooks by other celebrities. The chocolate mousse is to die for --I have never had chocolate pudding with avocados in it and I have to say it is awesome. The pecan crusted trout is also wonderful (be careful of portions on that however becasue of all those nuts!) I can't wait to try the grilled peaches and cream!

Excellent. Finally a book with healthy great tasting food. Especially relevant for me as my teenage daughter recently decided to become a vegetarian. This provides vegetarianian recipes that can serve as main courses as well as sides. This helps address the dilemma of cooking for both the vegan and meat eaters. Also as a person who is high risk for breast cancer I have an interest and stake in joining my daughter regularly in eating more meatless meals as well as supporting her decision. This book provides guidelines as well a philosophy which can be used in creating your own recipes. I am a bit of a foodie/gourmand so I hate those veggie cookbooks that get rave reviews by vegans who have a different "palate". These recipes are fully flavored, rock and will make you happy.........and healthy.This is Flexitarian cooking at it's best!

I LOVE this cookbook. It's packed with tons of creative, and delicious looking recipes that I can't wait to try. I made one recipe last night and it was so simple and crazy good and I will be making it over and over. It's the slow-cooked chicken tacos, super easy, with just three ingredients, good salsa, chicken broth and chicken breasts. They slow cook on the stove top and are fall apart tender. I served them over quinoa with lots of the tasty sauce and today for lunch made the tacos, shredding the chicken and topping with more salsa and avocado. Am already thinking ahead to the holidays and will be giving this as a gift for sure.

I love healthy, delicious foods and am always looking for new twists on family favorites. I checked this book out from the library a precaution I have employed to keep my collection in check. I tried the tuna salad with apples using my Vital Choice Brand canned tuna and loved it. So I went onto a sporty Blueberry BBQ salmon recipe again with my very pricy Vital Choice Salmon. The blueberry BBQ sauce was sub par however, and my guests did not want to finish the salmon. Yikes! $$$$ down the drain. Now I nervous to try some of the other recipes ! Good that I didn't buy the book! I would recommend trying it out before buying.
