Review

Wow, finally a legitimate cook book that I can offer my clients. I love the layout and the recipes are so simple and easy to follow. I like the fact that you have done all the work and we know about the proteins, carbs & fats which is so needed in legitimate health and fitness cookbooks. --JR Smith, Lifestyle & Weight Management Specialist, Total Healthcare Fitness Medical Exercise for Sports, Fitness & Post Rehab

I loved this Book! These dishes can be prepared for anyone not just someone on a fitness journey. I loved the holistic approach to food as well as the entertaining way Squeaky Gourmet was written. I plan to keep this book on stock at my college bookstore. --Dorene Peterson BA, Dip. NT, Dip. Acu, President of Australasian College of Health Science

More About the Author

The reality of being overweight and unhealthy has surrounded me all my
life. From my most early memories I remember many of my friends and
family living unhealthy lifestyles. My interest in health and fitness blossomed from an early age but I never had all the tools given to me to develop myself. It was at 31years old that I finally gave myself to healthy living. What I discovered was far more than I had set out to achieve. Not only did I free my body from almost 100 pounds of unnecessary fat-I discovered a new way of life! I learned that I DO have enough time for my husband and five children as well as having enough time to get fit and stay healthy. I discovered that fitness is not the strict treadmill and workout videos that housewives often fall victim to.

After earning my diploma in herbal medicine I began my own fitness journey. With my success story in hand, I set out to change the lives of family and friends around me. Because of my desire to disband the trends in society associated with obesity and unfit behavior, I earned a certificate in personal training from the International Sports Science Association so I could show people how they, too, can burn fat away and change their lives forever. I later earned certifications from the American College of Sports Medicine as well as with the United States Navy. I worked with the US Navy as a fitness specialist, helping to keep sailors physically fit. I was also able to work with the families of the enlisted helping spouses and children find their enjoyment in a fitness lifestyle.

It is my professional passion to teach people that health and fitness is not about self deprivation but more about self discovery. I want to spread my story and give people the tools they need as individuals to fight obesity as well as embracing health and living with fitness in their lives. As part of my repertoire, I am the author of several holistic health and fitness articles and co-author to Squeaky Gourmet; a fitness based cookbook. In the future, my goals include further fitness certification in nutrition as well as in more specific areas of training to round out my message of hope and belief that personal goals can be achieved. I hope to bring fitness into the mainstream with my book Squeaky Gourmet. For personal goals I plan on pursuing more strength based fitness aspects and to compete in strength related events. I now have 3 NH records for Strongman meets and will be training more for this sport.

When I first received this cookbook, I was very disappointed. From the reviews and the author's website, I had the impression that there would be a picture for each recipe. This is not true; there are few pictures. I thought that it was a bit overpriced for the fact that is it not hardcover. The first recipe I tried had a typo (Southwestern Burgers). I was disappointed when I was flipping through the recipes because none of that really got me excited to try them.

Nonetheless, I tried them anyway and everything I've tried has been delicious. Although the recipes are VERY simple, they are delicious. I thought they would be too boring because there are so little ingredients required, but this is not the case. If price is not an issue for you, I would purchase this cookbook.

As a busy graduate student and mom to 5 children (all living at home), I'm not one to give reviews normally. With this book though I really felt the need to. I ordered this book because it was grouped with other books on "clean" eating, which is something I strive toward achieving for my family. My definition of clean eating involves a movement away from processed foods. The other books I viewed when I ordered this one were the kind of "clean" I was aiming for, this one was definitely not. In spite of that I kept the book on the premise that I'd modify it to suit my needs. I used it for the first time this past week and was very disappointed. I understand that the authors are not chefs, and never required that to begin with, but there's a drastic difference between a skilled cook who writes a cook book and what this book delivers. I was shocked at how many mistakes and simple errors there were in this book. It really came across that the book was not written by someone that knew what they were doing in the kitchen. I ended up abandoning the recipe I chose to make midway through and completely revising it to make it work out better. I was left wondering if this book ever crossed the desk of a competent editor. Take home message: if your definition of clean eating is to limit your processed food intake, or you're an inexperienced cook, and/or you don't feel like having to modify and edit the recipes on the fly, then this is definitely NOT the book for you. If on the other hand you're open to translating the recipes in this book into usable recipes, then maybe it's worth buying it as food for thought/inspiration. If I had to do it over with I wouldn't have ordered this book. It's definitely not what I was looking for, and definitely not written well.

Just received my copy of Squeaky Gourmet and am thrilled! Clean, crisp, easy to follow. Great writeups on eating healthy, and not the same old boring recipes. They are quick, easy and use ingredients we tend to forget about; quinoa, sweet potatoes, using meats from chicken to wild game. Also gives ideas for side dishes and leftovers. It is a full-size book, so it's not going to get lost in a drawer. The nutritional values for each recipe are very nice, takes out the guesswork, and helps to show that eating tastefully, does not have to ruin a days work of so called dieting. Everyone on my Christmas list is getting one this year!

Squeaky Clean is a true rarity-a cookbook filled with healthy dishes that you and your family will actually LIKE. No weird ingredients no one can actually find, no funky "healthy" meals that your kids will turn their noses up at. Just simple, healthy REAL foods that taste GOOD. The authors also offer considerable advice on the right kinds of foods to eat. There are even charts with good choices if you need ideas, as well as information on why the foods listed are clean.

I have only just started to delve into my copy, but I have to say, with such delicious looking and sounding recipes, it won't be long before I've worked my way through this book! The photos made me hungry immediately, and the recipes are as good as they look. My only complaints are that the book is not spiral bound (an issue I have with most cookbooks), and that Squeaky Gourmet 2 isn't out yet! I really hope that Maureen and Jamie are already back in their kitchens cooking up more wonderful clean meals for us :-))

I was really impressed with the Squeaky Gourmet.. This is no ordinary cookbook! Not only does it have wonderful easy to use recipes.. it also provided a plethora of nutritional information. I love how the book explains what protein, carbs, and fats are..as well as provides the breakdown of nutritional values for each recipe!

This book is great for someone who is really wanting to incorporate "clean" eating without getting bored! It can be frustrating for the "new-be" or the old-timer with clean eating.. so it was very refreshing to see so many great recipes using REAL food!!

Honestly, it was fun flipping thru every page.. always some interesting tidbit of information to discover.

I could go on and on.. this is now a "staple" item in my kitchen..

Thank you Squeaky Gourmet!
