You can rev up your body with loads of energy, inspire the healer within, and entertain with the coolest, tastiest food ever!

“By now you'd have to be living under a rock to miss the message that eating mainly plants is good for all of us. What most don’t realize is that this way of eating has come a long way in the last decade. Eating your vegetables has never been more delightful and delicious. This book will open your eyes and your palate to a whole new way of life.” — Dr. Christiane Northrup

Crazy Sexy Kitchen is a gorgeous book simply packed with information. The recipes are well written and the photography beautiful. I am familiar with some of the chefs, having been educated at the Natural Epicurean in Austin, which is where the headquarters of Whole Foods is located at. As a trained chef, I think these are fabulous recipes that will be amazing. I plan to cook my way through the book (as soon as I break down and buy a dehydrator for some of the recipes that is). My daughter had just asked how I would make a vegan clam chowder, and the recipe in this book is even better than what I came up with. I am also a cancer survivor, so have a very real interest in eating for better health. The sections on Lifestyle and Philosophy, Preparation, and Kitchen Know-How that are in front of the 150 recipes give the reader an excellent natural foods education in themselves.

The layout, font, design, and photography is gorgeous. I am very familiar with standard annotations to recipes, GF for Gluten-Free, V for Vegan, etc. but I had to go find the index to figure out what a '1 GF SF KF Q' designation was for example. Once you see what all the abbreviations mean, it is easy to remember them however.

So for a natural foods chef, or a chef that wants to learn more about natural foods cooking, this is a fabulous resource. So many books on 'healthy cooking' including some from the Culinary Institute of America seem to think that means cutting down on salt and fat, but leaving in the white flour, sugar, and all the rest. If you are a dedicated and fearless cook, this is also a fabulous resource. My only concern is that 'normal' people who work all day, run their kids around, and have to get dinner on the table fast that everyone will eat might be frustrated.

I love Kris, read her blog and loved her other books. Her personality, creativity and attitude always inspire me. I ordered this book as soon as it came out, but as soon as it arrived and I flipped through it, I was disappointed. Seriously? All these chef recipes put me off. I'm an expert cook, a long-time vegetarian and no stranger to health food stores and curious ingredients. But even so, I knew these recipes would be once-in-a-while special occasion meals, not everyday working kitchen staples. Fortunately, I do not have a chronic illness, but I can hardly imagine someone who isn't feeling well tackling these ambitious production recipes!

What I was hoping for were healthful recipes that could be used everyday. For a comparison, I often cook from "Cooking Cancer in the Kitchen" by Ramke and Scott. It comes from the same nutritional and philosophical approach as Carr, but the recipes are MUCH simpler and do-able for people who are busy, or coping with chronic health issues. Perhaps Kris's next cookbook can focus on simpler, everyday recipes. This book, however, I returned.

I'm an omnivore married to a vegan and we've made 20+ meals from this book so far. Everything has been excellent. I highly recommend the Chickpea Crepes with Artichoke Aioli. Blew my mind.

I have had this book for quite a few months now and I must say that it is not one I am inspired to use often. Most of the recipes have too many ingredients and steps to be enticing for use as everyday, quick meals. Those that dont fall into this category are at the other extreme, very simple and basic - the sort that you really dont need a recipe for!. I have tried a number of the recipes and they are just okay, sometimes tasty, sometimes bland, but generally not anything I would be inclined to make again - in most cases I have recipes that are similar but tastier, or quicker to prepare. Love the message that Kris imparts, but the cookbook is a let down.

Since I grew to like "Crazy Sexy Diet" So much I was pretty excited to get my hands on a copy of "Crazy Sexy Kitchen." I received it as a Christmas gift back in 2012, but I'll be honest, I didn't use it very much right away. I'm not sure why but something about it just didn't appeal to me at the time. Maybe it was the fact that most of the recipes come once again from celebrity chefs like Chad Sarrno rather then Kris Carr. I'll be honest, I don't care about celebrity chefs vegan or otherwise, what I care about is what Kris Carr has to say, and what she's actually making to eat day-to-day. I mean maybe she makes some of this stuff everyday, maybe not, who knows, but at the time I just wasn't interested. So for a little over a year this book went unused, sitting, and taking up space on my shelf, then this past January rolled around and I decided to do a month long cleanse. I was using the "Crazy Sexy Diet" as a guidebook, and decided why not try some of the recipes from "Crazy Sexy Kitchen" Oh wow, am I ever glad that I did!

Recipes that looked so daunting and time consuming upon first glance turned out to be effortless and easy. In fact, I don't think any recipe took me longer then 30-40 minutes which is about average time for me in the kitchen anyway. Some of the recipes have a long ingredient list, but that's because they're rich in spices and vegetables. All of the spices I have on hand anyway, and most other things I keep in the pantry. Certain foods like fennel, or beets, or zucchini I don't have in the fridge every week but that's no big deal. With a little forethought and planning I found this book very easy to use, and pretty economical.

I was however a little surprised at some of the ingredients used in the book. Certain oils for one, sugar, gluten etc..
