This book is a powerhouse for healthy eating... The variety combined with the simplicity of following recipes that have done the 'Is this healthy?' guesswork for you makes this an A+ in my books. (Canadian Gift Guide 2012-05-18)
This is healthy cooking from a very different perspective: because it is first and foremost a cookbook, not a diet book, it begins and ends with enticing, easy-to-prepare recipes that make the five principles simple and doable.

All the recipes include nutritional information and cooking tips. And you'll find informative health notes and superfoods highlights scattered throughout the book. There's also a very useful chart on cooking whole grains that provides grain/water ratios, cooking times, and expected yield, which I keep meaning to copy and stick on the fridge for easy reference.
There are not lots of pictures, but the 25 full-page photos appearing in the middle are mouthwatering.
5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking covers all the bases, with recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, bread and snacks. Chapters include:
Power Snacks, Spreads and Nibbles
Soups, Stews and Chilis
Wandwiches, Warps, Burgers and Pizzas
Meatless Main Dishes
Poultry and Lean Meat Main Dishes
Fish and Seafood Main Dishes
Multigrain Pasta and Noodles
Natural Sugar Sweets
This is a very useful, cookbook for those of us wanting to eat healthy food that is also easy and delicious. In 5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking: 500 Recipes for Lifelong Wellness, Camilla shows us how to make wholesome food that is simple and creative, familiar yet interesting.
I also thought the recipes weren't overly expensive either, in fact quite frugal. It has helped us practice portion control with only 4 servings and our family five. I "pad" the ingredients just a little to make it five servings.
We like this cookbook so much we pre-ordered her up-coming quinoa cookbook.
