For that reason I'm giving the book 2 stars. It's mostly a cook book and with many of the recipes being wrongly printed, it can't do it's job. It looks like it was thrown together quickly and whoever did the editing, did a lousey job. That said the author seems to have a lot of knowledge and perhaps should just have been more involved in the rest of the process. Personally I think it should go back to the publishers and have all the mistakes corrected.
The Complete Idiot's Guide to DASH Diet Cooking has given me the knowledge that I needed not only to eat better, but to understand what kinds of foods work for or against my health. This book provides all the information that I needed to make informed decisions for my family and to get started on the track to healthy eating IMMEDIATELY. The included grocery list took the guess work out of making my grocery list (a great time saver when you have four kids in tow). So far, the recipes are simple to prepare which means I don't have to spend a great deal of family time preparing meals. I'm not used to using spices/seasonings that didn't include words indicating that is was some variation of "salt" or "pepper" but the recipes that I have tried so far are nothing short of amazing which is why I was so surprised when I found out that the author, Deirdre Rawlings (who is a naturopathic doctor and holistic nutritionist), created them herself.
Since changing my eating habits, I have noticed that I have more energy throughout the day and am no longer lethargic after meals. I am eating more fresh fruits and vegetables than ever and I'm excited to be working towards reaching my target weight.
I am so glad to have this book. Thank you Deirdre for helping me be a better me!
The results showed almost immediately. I had a goal that required dropping 15 lbs and gettingmy Blood Pressure below 120/80 (Canada) and I now average 111/66 which is a really satisfying result. This took just 5 weeks from a 137/85. But I really stuck to the book.
I would like to see the meals broken down into nutritional values though. I think that way and could really use the info.
So all in all folks... IT WORKS!!!
Thanks for the book Ms Rawlings

It is okay...I was looking for some simpler recipes. Many of these require lots of ingredients. I wish it had some 4 or 5 ingredient recipes.Published on January 25, 2014 by Jane From Orlando
