"Simple, basic tools are often all we need to get ourselves started on a healthy path. Kate O’Donnell has used her natural lightness and humor along with real-life examples to show us how easy this can be. The Everyday Ayurveda Cookbook is a must-have for anyone on the road to improve their health through good food sense."—Hilary Garivaltis, founder of the Kripalu School of Ayurveda

"Emerging from an ancient Asian civilization, Ayurveda now brings its message to confused modern cultures: take care of the basics and live life to its fullest. In a world where so many of us survive on such little real nutrition, Ayurveda bids us to make real food our friend, as Kate O'Donnell clearly has. The Everyday Ayurveda Cookbook lures us into the kitchen, where food may once again work its healing alchemy on us. Let this book guide you into a daily practice of “the yoga of eating,” and you can transform your life. Sukhino bhavantu!"—Dr. Robert Svoboda, Ayurvedic physician and author of Prakriti: Your Ayurvedic Constitution

The only minor criticism I have of the book is that the index is very incomplete and it is hard to search for dishes. But I made a list of all my favorites, including many wonderful drinks and deserts, with the page number and that works well. At least 4 of my friends are cooking entirely from this book, too and are equally happy with the recipees.
If you are at all attracted to this kind of cooking, you won't regret buying this book!
There are some items you will likely need to add to your pantry, but once you have the staples on hand you'll be ready to make most any recipe in the book. Nothing exotic or costly is required, which I appreciate. There are seasonal grocery lists at the start of each section which are hugely helpful. Most are familiar, while others might be new. I've personally enjoyed exploring new grains and spices, and incorporating different types of produce and sources of protein into my diet.
The recipes themselves are very easy to follow, have good portion sizes, and are easy to scale depending on your need. I've really enjoyed everything I've made so far (and that is coming from someone who regularly eats meat, dairy, soy, gluten, etc). I've focused on the spring recipes, which are very light but still comforting. I also used the 'everyday' recipes in preparation for an Ayurvedic spring cleanse, but have no doubt I'll be turning to these again throughout the year.
Book is beautiful. Love the colorful photos and overall feel to it. It's a good size for the kitchen and easy to keep open while cooking. There are also little tips and tricks sprinkled throughout the book - very helpful!
