What a book! I have all of Mairlyn Smith's cookbooks. This one is just as good if not better than the others because it has a great illustrative content as well as the fab recipes. Who doesn't love photos of what the food looks like? Not only is the layout fantastic, but the recipes are even better. I love it when there is minimal chopping involved and this book is exactly that. Minimal ingredients, but each one provides maximum flavor and maximum nutrient content. Not only that but you know you are getting top notch nutrition and best of all everything tastes great! My 7 yr old has not turned her nose up at anything so far and we just say "It's a Mairlyn recipe so you know you are going to love it!".

Once again Mairlyn hits a home run with her new book. A must have for everyone.....buy it for yourself and buy one for someone you care about so you can spread the good health, and great taste of these easy to make and fabulous recipes.

For anyone also wanting to know what is in their recipes, the nutrition breakdown is fantastic and has a diabetic equivalent for those needing to know that information as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars another winner May 21 2011
By Vivien
Format:Paperback
Mairlyn has done it again. I have all of her books and they are scattered throughout kitchens in UK, Vancouver and Toronto. Everyone I have shared them with love the recipes, the ease, the taste and the funny comments. This latest book has stunning photography, in depth nutritional advice, amusing anecdotes and is an all round winner. Get rid of all the old cook books clogging your cupboard and make room for this .......you will be healthier and happier.

5.0 out of 5 stars The only cookbook I will ever need! Oct. 11 2011
Format:Paperback
This is the only cookbook that I really need. The recipes are simple yet have complex flavours and it's a bonus that they are also healthy. I use this as my 'go to' book for casual entertaining and everyday meals. The breakfast grab and goes have become a staple in my home and everyone grabs one out of the freezer on their way out the door in the mornings. The tip about marinating chicken and then freezing it was invaluable as I now always have something ready to prepare.
THANK YOU, Mairlyn Smith for writing recipes that are healthy and don't taste like %!*?.

3.0 out of 5 stars Definately worth buying ! Feb. 14 2013
By Barb O.
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really do LOVE this lady, I first started watching her on City Line, she is not only VERY knowledgable, but extremely funny too !
She translates into laymens terms how and what to look for in healthy choices...
My ONLY problem with the book, there is just not enough pictures for me,
and unfortunately I need visuals to help me decide if I want to make something or not, but I really is a beautiful book.
