As a long term Sonoma County resident I read The Sonoma Diet with interest when it came out last year. Based on a balanced combination of lean protein, low density carbs, and high-quality fats, the Sonoma Diet conforms to current ideas on nutritionally sound weight loss.

In The Sonoma Diet Cookbook this translates into a plethora of chicken, fish and even beef dishes, along with all kinds of vegetables and fruits, olive oil, and even some cheese and butter for extra flavor. I have tried the Turkey Mango Melts on page 57. It is a wonderful flavor combination, but when I make it again I will use a hearty rustic loaf to stand up better to the broiler process. I also tried the Broccoli with Goat Cheese and Walnuts. This dish is an easy way to make veggies into an attractive side dish.

I recommend this book for those looking for good healthy recipes even if they are not on a diet.

I've never bought and actually used a recipe book as much as I have this one. Initially I was skeptical whether the food would be any good. Then, when I got it I was angry that the recipes usually serve 4-6 people.

But, ultimately it turns out that of the 10 or so recipes I tried, only one has been mediocre - the rest have been amazing. Further, by making 4-6 servings and spliting them up into freezable containers, it has made following the diet all that much more simple. I've bought the book for another friend to try it and recommend the diet and this book to nearly everyone these days.

My husband and I have been on the Sonoma Diet for about 3 months now and to date he has lost 15 lbs. And I have lost 32 lbs the recipies are delicious we hardly feel like we are dieting and I actually cook now where in the past "fast food" was the way to go. I suggest to anyone who has had problems in the past with weight management to try this plan although the original sonoma Diet book is great I tell people they must get this new Recipie Book because it gives you so many options to date I have gone from a 2x to a size 16, I have a way to go but I look and feel great, Thanks Sonoma, for changing my life.

I needed a recipe book that included pictures of the meals since I'm a visual person. I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I choose this book... just for its pictures. After cooking 5 or so meals, I have no regrets. I've received great reviews and compliments for my cooking thanks to this recipe book.

There are a number of meals to choose from for any craving or occasion. The meals are not only delicious, but the ingredients used are very healthy. I've just started cooking from this recipe book and already I've lost a couple of pounds. The author even recommends which wine would go best for the entrée.

If you want to start eating good healthy food, this is the recipe book for you!

I have been a cook and pastry chef for 20 years. This is the best cookbook I have ever used. I use it daily and have recommended it to several of my friends. The food is amazing. Taste and flavor just explode from each wave. Easy to find ingredients and easy to prepare recipes. After 7 weeks, I have lost 22 pounds and am still enjoying every meal I prepare from the book.

If you buy the book on the Sonoma diet, which I highly recommend, you must buy this cookbook. Everything we've made is super! What a fabulous cookbook. I collect cookbooks and am a real foodie! And, it's all healthy! My family is sold on the Mediterranean diet. This Sonoma diet is the best way to achieve this way of eating here in the US. Using plate sizes, it is easy to see your quantity of food per meal.The author makes it easy to use this diet. Every aspect is well laid out. The recipes use common items found in supermarkets.

My husband and I enjoy cooking, and on the weekends we love to indulge in a little gourmet dining. We are used to eating very flavorful dishes. However, eating that way has caused us to start gaining weight. So I had read about this cookbook in our local paper and decided to try it. In the past, my attempt to use diet book recipes have been disappointing. However , the recipes I have tried so far have been excellent. They are easy to make and they use fresh ingredients, which I think is the secret to their taste. I am very happy with this book, and would not call it a diet cookbook because the recipes are so tasty.

I purchased a grocery line cookbook that had some Sonoma Diet recipes. My husband and I tried a few, and we were hooked. These foods are the most wonderful, flavorful dishes you will ever have! We have completely changed our family's eating habits. Best of all? Our kids have loooooved every single thing we have made.
