Review

“There’s a wise saying that many in modern medicine miss: ‘If you live to be 120 years old, but had to cut out all of life's pleasures to do so, why bother!’ Dr. Bowden teaches you how pleasure and health can naturally go hand in hand—even with today's frantic pace of life. Fantastic!” —Jacob Teitelbaum, M.D., author of the best-selling From Fatigued to Fantastic! and Beat Sugar Addiction Now!, and author of the popular free iPhone® application “Cures A–Z”



Bowden, Jonny & Jeannette Bessinger. The 150 Healthiest 15-Minute Recipes on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth About How To Make the Most Deliciously Nutritious Meals at Home in Just Minutes a Day. Fair Winds: Quayside. 2010. 272p. photogs. index. ISBN 9781592334421. pap. $24.99. COOKING
Board-certified nutritionist Bowden and nutrition educator and personal whole foods chef Bessinger (coauthors, The Healthiest Meals on Earth) have chosen recipes based on nutrient density (greatest nutrition for the dollar), glycemic load (low in sugar or processed carbs), and fiber. Busy families will appreciate such recipes as Speedy and Spicy Curried Apricot Chicken Salad, Fortified Fish Soup with Sweet Onion, and Healthy Jalapeño Cornbread Chili. Nutritional information for each recipe lists calories, fat, protein, and fiber. Recommended for health-conscious cooks short on time. - Library Journal, Mar. 15, 2011

A gem of a book and a collector's piece for all of Dr. Jonny's fans!” —Ann Louise Gittleman, Ph.D., C.N.S., New York Times best-selling author of The Fat Flush Plan and Zapped

The recipes are super healthy, easy, fast and delicious!
Sawyer
The largest section in this book says "prep to plate in 15 minutes," you're good at cooking, this is probably an accurate time frame.

I am reviewing this book after purchasing a second copy for friends who immediately saw the value of our gift for them.

I like this book, have made several recipes and they have all been enjoyable. However, the reason for my 3 stars is that I was under the impression from the title that I would have dinner on the table in 20 - 25 minutes with these recipes. NOT THE case. It is more like 15 minutes of preparing, and then there is cooking time. A LOT of the recipes have to cook for 30 - 60 minutes. This is dinner in 45 min to 1.5 hours in my opinion, not 15 min.

The food it this book is really good. It uses easily accesible food and easy techniques, and tells you want is good about the ingredents. However, the recipies are more like 15 min active time. Some are from start to finish 15 minutes, but most are 15 minutes prep and then baking. Also the nutritional information for the recipe is pretty useless because it will say: serves 4 to 6 and then gives a calorie count such as 200 calories per serving, so I am not sure if that is for a quarter or a sixth of the dish, also the ingredent list with have use ground beef, turkey, or veggie crumbles so you aren't sure which one of those the nutritional information used.
I have tried several of the recipes and enjoyed everything so far with plans to try more. It is a worthwhile book and I definetly recomend it!

I absolutely hate cooking, but I love a good meal as does the rest of my family. I ordered this book as a last resort when I realized my family was eating instant food several times a week for dinner. I know this is unhealthy because I have digestion issues and they get worse when I eat like this. I literally have about 15-30minutes to prepare a meal so this is perfect. I must admit though that it takes me more like 20-30 minutes for these granted I am probably terrible at chopping, locating the ingredients I bought, etc. The largest section in this book says "prep to plate in 15 minutes," you're good at cooking, this is probably an accurate time frame. The 2nd section is "25 Tasty 15 min Prep and (Almost) Forget it Meals," so a little longer cook time. The 3rd section is "25 healthiest quick snacks" which i haven't tried yet, but they look yummy. Anyway, I am a total advocate for this book having a child jumping at my heels while I cook, but at least she gets something yummy and good for her when I'm done. Tip for disorganized time-limited people like me: pick your recipe and make your grocery list the night before, pick he stuff up on the way home the next day, cook it for dinner! Good luck!

Format: Paperback
Written by nutritionist Jonny Bowden and whole foods cook Jeannette Bessinger, this cookbook features quick, healthy recipes that don't use processed foods. It includes recipes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, as well as snacks and desserts, plus a meatless section for vegetarian recipes.

The one recipe I've tried so far, Tilapia With Lemony Tomatoes, was great (I substituted olive oil for the macadamia nut oil, and minced garlic from a jar instead of fresh garlic because those are what I had on hand). There are many more recipes I will try from this cookbook including Jalapeno Cornbread Chili, Black Bean Salad, fajitas, and Honey Drumsticks With Cayenne. For the most part, the ingredients seem to be those that can be found in regular grocery stores or if not, could be easily substituted.

Some of the things I like about this cookbook are the color photos, nutritional tips and food facts scattered throughout, and that some of the recipes are intentionally doubled so that half can be frozen for another meal. Mostly I like that the recipes really are quick and easy while being healthy and full of flavor.

I received a copy of this book for review from the publisher but the opinion of it is my own and was not solicited nor was a positive review required.

I have tried several of these recipes and they are quick and great tasting. As I browse through it, I find so many of the healthy foods I like to eat incorporated into these recipes which are hard to find any place else. It's a great book...

If you don't have all night to slave in the kitchen, Jonny Bowden and Jeannette Bessinger have the guidebook for you. "Healthiest 15-Minute Recipes" is filled with delectable, efficient recipes to make mouth-watering meals (if the meals are as good as the pictures) using chicken, seafood, stir-fry and one pot cooking. Kitchen prep and speedy shopping help the process. Following the books guidelines should reset your compass for getting the most in both flavor and health benefits in the least amount of time. Our favorite: the rosemary, apple-poached chicken and barley.

I'm a little biased here since I worship Jonny Bowden! I have all his books and this was the latest one that I bought. I loved his first cook book and I thought this one was perfect for a busy mom like me. There are so many recipes in this book that it'll take forever to try all of them. I've probably tried 10 of them, and they are all real easy, healthy and delicious!!! The recipes are not those healthy but bad tasting crap. They are surprisingly delicious!! I highly recommend this book.

I have tried 3 recipes so far and they were delicious. Can't wait to try more! You need to already have the types of foods called for in the recipes, or at least like that kind of food, or you will be adding to your shopping lists. I love quinoa, for instance. There are several with this ingredient. The "Quick & Hearty Vegetable-Bean Quinoa" was my favorite. Just like many of the other reviewers say, they do take more than 15 mins., but not that long to bother me. It should really be named the 150th Healthiest 30-minute Recipies on Earth.
