Next look at the overview of the dash diet, pretty much the dash diet, but with extra restrictions. I am suspicious of the extra restrictions like,"Nuts must be eaten raw."
Now on to the recipes, the introduction tells you to eat 6 servings of vegetables, but the recipes don't tell you how many servings they contain. This is a big hole in the usefulness of the book.
The recipes don't follow the dash diet--the recipe on page 141 has 2788mg of sodium per serving!! Way above 1500 mg/day that the dash recommends.
I will end this review where the book ends, with the index. The index is useless--want to look up black beans? you have to know that the book uses "Anna's black beans" as the index entry not "black beans".
Avoid this book.
The recipes are easy and require no special skills, for which I'm especially grateful. No exotic ingredients are required, and, best of all, these dishes can be made in record time. The dishes take me out of my "comfort zone" -- I've discovered kale! Most importantly, these dishes are amazingly delicious even for those, like my husband, who believe only hot dogs should be considered "food."
I heartily recommend this cookbook for everyone, whether or not you have health concerns. Maybe, like I did, you'll discover that eating healthy can also be easy, fun, and tasty!
I agree with another reviewer about the lack of serving information. The recipes only say the number of servings and does not include how big each serving is. It would be nice if they could say something like "1 chicken breast with 2 TBSP sauce".
If you decide to buy this cookbook, you probably should calculate the nutritional information yourself instead of relying upon the nutritional info listed.
Save your money.
