"Cathy Fisher is a very talented chef who has been helping people at the McDougall Program for many years to regain their lost health. Her recipes are delicious and easy to prepare, and we highly recommend that you prominently place Straight Up Food in your cookbook library."
--John McDougall, M.D. and Mary McDougall, best-selling authors and co-founders of the McDougall Program
"The specialty of nutrition has been misunderstood for far too long. The future of health care worldwide requires a better understanding of a whole-food, plant-based diet and its enormous nutritional benefits. In making a transition to this dietary lifestyle, one of the biggest challenges is learning how to cook healthy food. Toward this end, I recommend Cathy Fisher's excellent cookbook, Straight Up Food."
--T. Colin Campbell, Ph.D., Jacob Gould Sherman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry Cornell University; co-author of the best-selling books, The China Study and Whole
"I love it! Plant-based, whole-food-focused, and no added sugar, oil, or salt--who knew healthy eating could be so easy and delicious!?"
--Michael Greger, M.D., F.A.C.L.M., creator of NutritionFacts.org and author of How Not to Die
"Cathy is unique in her ability to do what few other chefs are able to do: produce recipes that combine simplicity with great taste, and can meet the guidelines of whole-food, plant-based eating without any added salt, oil or sugar. Her recipes are a true gift to everyone who follows this way of living. I call her work 'elegant simplicity.'"
--Jeff Novick, M.S., R.D.N.
"TrueNorth Health Center has been teaching patients to eat an exclusively plant-food diet free of added salt, oil, and sugar for over 30 years. During this time the greatest challenge that our patients have faced is how to sustain the results they achieve through diet and fasting at TrueNorth once they return home. Cathy Fisher has helped solve this problem. Even the most resistant to dietary change will love her flavorful food and easy-to-follow recipes. This book can help save your life and the lives of the people you love."
--Dr. Alan Goldhamer, founder of TrueNorth Health Center and co-author of The Pleasure Trap.

My hardest thing to do is to come up with some variety in the meals I eat. Straight Up Food is my favorite cookbook with simple recipes that taste great. It would be my first choice for those who would like to live a healthier life.
The food in this book and others have truly turned my life around, and I have outlived my first cardiologist's expectations. I hope to live many more healthy, happy years by following the reversal diet as so well presented with these fantastic recipes in this book.
Everything in this cookbook is oil-free, sugar-free, and salt-free -- and while you may think that that would limit the taste, everything I've made so far has been delicious! The author uses ordinary ingredients for all her recipes (so you won't find things like chia seeds, goji berries, etc. in here), and the idea is to create recipes that replicate favorites.
I'm including photos of the blueberry muffins, enchilada casserole, and veggie burgers.
I also love the coil binding on this cookbook; while the pages sometimes get stuck, it allows it to remain open for ease of use.
Also in the back of the book are several sections that outline strategies for things like how to change to a plant-based diet, how to cook without oil, how to do menu planning, and tips for traveling and eating out. Nutrition data is included for each recipe in the back, too, and the author provides serving sizes, calories, caloric density information, as well as information about fat grams, sodium grams, carbs, protein, sugar, fiber, and calcium.
While pricier than other cookbooks, I like supporting authors like Cathy Fisher, who obviously put her heart into creating healthy, delicious recipes. I've been using this cookbook a lot, and know I will for years to come.
