Customer Review

If you find one good recipe in a cookbook then I think it is worth the price. Deborah A. Klein has a great recipe for granola using agave nectar. I turned the recipe into a tropical granola by using Mariani Tropical Medley dried fruits. I also substituted wheat bran for the oat bran and flaxseed meal for the wheat germ. I omitted the soy nuts. It turned out perfect.

The book is divided up into logical sections:

Carbohydrates: Fruits
Carbohydrates: Starchy Vegetables
Carbohydrates: True Vegetables
Carbohydrates: Grains
Carbohydrates: Dairy and Dairy Substitutes
Proteins
Fats
Sweeteners and Desserts
Dietary "Free" Foods: Herbs and Medicinals
Beverages - this section has no drinks it just talks
about the benefit of drinking lots of water - there
are drinks in the book like Low-Fat Eggnog but
it is included under the topic of milk.
Snacks

Some of the recipes include:

Fudge Brownies made with applesauce
Blueberry muffins with oatmeal
Peachy Papaya Smoothie
Quick Black Bean Soup
Vegetarian Chili
Baba Ghanoush (made with eggplant)
Mediterranean Cod
Chicken in Red Wine
Sage Potatoes

The interesting part of this book is the explanation of featured foods. Like when discussing yams the author talks about how some varieties of yams can reduce the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. When discussing mushrooms it is noted that brown mushrooms have more antioxidants than white button mushrooms. By reading through all the extra information for various foods you can learn to be wiser when shopping at your local grocery store. There are however some foods you will only find in health food stores although most grocery stores seem to have a natural isle these days.

This book will encourage you to try new foods and it will alert you to the benefits of some of your favorite foods. I can highly recommend the granola recipe as you can make many variations and the recipe is easy to modify to suit your tastes.
