Book Description

Nov. 14 2008 Essentials

Leave it to Williams-Sonoma to serve up such a simply beautiful way to eat well. This innovative new volume takes an entirely fresh approach to healthy eating, with nature`s own colors at the heart of the plan. The premise is as easy as paint-by-numbers: by selecting one ingredient from each of six color food groups every day, you`ll be well on your way to getting all the fresh produce you need for maximum health. Plus you`ll receive the added benefit of powerful antioxidants and health-enhancing phytochemicals. You may be wondering, what exactly are phytochemicals? In many cases, they are the pigments that give plant foods their gorgeous hues, and, more importantly, phytochemicals are part of the plants` immune systems. So by eating a fruit or vegetable from each of these color groups every day, you`re giving yourself the full spectrum of phytochemical health benefits. Yes, you heard it here first: a color a day keeps the doctor away. In a very tasty way, of course. Each naturally delicious recipe starts with a colorful, fresh ingredient--purple bell peppers, green spinach, red strawberries, or orange squash, for example--and offers meal suggestions that pair them with fish, lean meat, or fowl. Infuse your meals with choices from Williams-Sonoma`s fresh produce rainbow and you`re on your way to better, healthier living through color. Features: 150 delicious recipes featuring fresh, healthy ingredients More than 200 gorgeous color photos 6 chapters, one for each color of the fresh produce rainbow plus brown for grains and legumes 75 " Fresh Ideas" --simple, quick 1-paragraph recipes-at-a-glance for preparing fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes

5.0 out of 5 stars Yum Aug. 6 2007
By L. Deas - Published on Amazon.com
I love this book. The recipes are largely simple and very affordable. It really opened me up to new foods I had never heard of, while bringing back the comfort foods, too.

A few ingredients will take some work to locate (e.g., quinoa). I can usually find them, but I live in a city with both a Wild Oats, a Whole Foods, and a very large local famer's market. If you garden, you can plant and grow most every weird vegetable in this book (e.g., blue potatoes, purple bell peppers), but you'll have to get the seeds or started plants on-line through Burpee or someone.

4.0 out of 5 stars beauiful and unusual Sept. 8 2007
By S. MacLean - Published on Amazon.com
Many of these recipies contain really hard to find ingredients. However, a lot of them can be substituted. Aside from that, the book is pretty fun. There's lots of uncommon flavor combinations that I definately would not have tried without inspiration. The reason I decided to buy this book is for the "fresh ideas." They are quick and easy side dishes and desserts that i go to frequently when trying to use up produce. The photography in this book makes it fun to flip through.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eating by Color May 17 2009
By Lab Man - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Interesting approach to gathering recipes. If you are a person who is drawn by color or color combinations this book will facinate you. The chapters are titled by food colors rather than "bread", "soup". Very enjoyable.

5.0 out of 5 stars each chapter has a "Fresh Ideas" section that acts as a nice stepping stone into the other recipes Aug. 17 2014
By Whitney Winn - Published on Amazon.com
I first found this cookbook in a clearance rack at the bookstore where I worked. After buying it, I then bought more copies for my friends. While some of the recipes may seem intimidating, each chapter has a "Fresh Ideas" section that acts as a nice stepping stone into the other recipes. If you live near a Winco or Costco, you can certainly make all of the recipes in this book. The directions are easy to follow, it is easy to make your food look like the pictures in the book (a testament to the writing and not my skill), it has lists of when certain fruits and vegetables are in season, and even a section for nutrition and calories (great for people who are diabetic or hypoglycemic). All in all, this is my favorite cookbook.
