So, I think it is good that they have several chapters of introductory information talking about the benefits of different types of vegetables. I have personal experience with the power of a healthy diet fixing chronic and acute health conditions of my own, and I think many people might not realize the power healthy food choices can truly have in reversing chronic disease conditions or improving overall wellness. So I love that!
But the main reason I bought this was totally the recipes. Many of them work up quickly, are relatively simple, yet quite good. I totally love the chipotle smashed sweet potatoes, And their pumpkin 'n apple-y yogurt parfait is downright awesome, though I will admit to subbing out the sugar for monks fruit. Those are my two personal favorites, but I did like the roasted turnip nips a lot too.
What I would say is that it would be awesome if the index had recipes listed by main ingredient (it has them listed by health benefit and not recipe), and that's my only reason for removing a star. So, I would say the recipes are 5 star, but sometimes I really don't want to have to dig through an entire section to find what I'm looking for, which is why I love it when there's more comprehensive indexing ;) I do, however, like that under table of contents they list things by meal type, which helps a bit for finding things, but you still do have to dig through the individual items. Overall though, I do really like this particular cookbook...
