So this weekend we tried our first recipe, the Spicy Chicken Tacos. I had pretty much everything on hand, aside from some spices. I could not believe how delicious they were! And more importatnly so very filling. Even my husband, who has a large appetite thought they were extremely filling.
The next day we had the breakfast "pizzas" - eggs on pita with sauteed spinach. Again - fantastic and easy!
I also made the blackberry cups for a BBQ and they were a huge hit - and so simple.
So far we're 3 for 3 and I cannot wait to try more recipes.
I also love the last section which is summer drinks. I always find it difficult to enjoy a nice refershing beverage in the summer because they are all so full of sugar - this book has a great selection.
Follow-up 1 week later: This week we made the crab cakes, jalapeno turkey burgers, and the spicy fish tacos (we used tilapia instead of seabass). OMG they were all so freakin' delicious and EASY!!! I cannot pick a favorite because they were just all so yummy. I am loving this cookbook!

I've followed the plan for almost a year and have lost 27 lbs. It is now no longer a "diet", but a way of life. Even my non vegy eating husband likes many of the recipes in these books. If I only had two of the SB books, these two would be perfect.
