This book is a very good read even if you don't try any of the recipes. There is much information about nutrition and all the claims are backed up by credible studies, sources etc. The recipes are also incredible. Most of them are very quick and easy to make. They all use fresh and healthy ingredients. Most importantly though, it comes out tasting good! No old cardboard taste. Just fresh and good! I've tried at least 30 so far and I've been very impressed. I'm addicted!

Sensational compilation - fabulous nutritional analysis, recommendations, recipes. Almost unbelievable. His website is also of the same quality - he has put together an amazing team with exceptional credentials. After searching many sites and books, I can (and will) raise my infant son on these nutritional principles - they are solid and so very detailed. The biggest drawback is with his team's low-fat recommendations which are in need of updating; as is not noting for readers that pasteurized milk is a very processed food and not a healthful choice. Fermented milk would be an improvement - whole milk yogurt, kefir. Otherwise, skipping over the USDA nonsense sell-out, a great addition to the personal library. Did you know to let your cabbage, onions and garlic stand after cutting?? If not, I think you'd consider getting this book!

Format: Paperback
This book is an extremely thorough nutritional investigation of the healthiest foods available. This is not a diet book, but a program for a healthy way of living. The recipes included are simple, easy to prepare, but quite delicious. My one complaint is the book's heft. It can be a little bit daunting and includes a somewhat overwhelming amount of nutritional information and detailed descriptions of the benefits of individual nutrients. But overall I find the philosophy sound. The book promotes a focus on whole foods, and a diverse diet that meets all of a person's nutritional needs without having to turn to handfuls of supplements.

This is the best book on cooking and healthy eating I've seen. My partner and I love it so much that we've talked all our friends, family and coworkers into buying it too. They all have been impressed.

The beauty of the book is that it is, for the most part, very trustworthy. This is not just because of the research that everything is backed up by but because our success rate with the recipes is so high. George does not lead you astray.

He introduces a few solid cooking methods that are used throughout the book. We've taken it to be "the authority" on cooking in our house--we do 95% of our cooking straight out of this book and feel healthier because of it. Best of all, the food is not gross. The majority of the meals are extremely tasty.

Not to keep on, but one more great feature is that the book is organized by ingredients (all of the world's healthiest foods). This allows you to explore your curiosity by looking up your favourite ingredients (e.g. asparagus, salmon).

This book is a very small investment that will bring health and enjoyment to you and your kitchen for years to come!

The nutritional value and their daily % of our body's need, of that food source,is listed.A source of many, many vegetables, fruits, nuts meats and fish.Many detailed recepies including their nutritional and carbohydrate value.It lists all the major health wise foods and their benefits to our bodies.

This is an excellent reference. The recipes are also very good- well laid out, simple to make. And the guidelines are all backed by credible research. This is a book to keep on the kitchen counter at all times!

This book is far more then just a cookbook, it's an encyclopedia of everything you should know about food and health. The recipes are so tasty and easy, it will change the way you think about food preparation altogether. A must have.
