The beginning is a guide to healthful eating with a focus on fresh ingredients, moderate to low fat and lower sodium. Some dishes would be very hard to fit into a low carb life style as that isnt the focus..altho if you were low carbing with more of a focus on watching your glycemic index this book would work out much better.
There are many color pictures of the dishes. Most full page and opposite the recipes. There is a bit of an intro prior to the recipe. Sometimes about why a cooking method was chosen or about an unusual ingredient. Along the side of the pages are snipits called *cooking clinic* about how to choose produce, or how to preform a technique etc...or a *nutrition note* about a specific ingredient.
The layout of recipes is ingredients down one side and cooking method down the other. I prefer ingredients on top and cooking at the bottom. I find it less confusing but it is a personal preference. The recipes take up the whole page so the size of the font and layout puzzles me a bit. It could have been much bigger and easier to read...there is half a page of blank space on a considerable number of pages. When Im cooking I dont want to be switching back and forth with my reading glasses all the time......That said, they are fairly easy to read.
I have tried an enjoyed several soups. Chicken and orzo, lentil, and split pea. They were all very good!Read more ›

If you have kids, and want them to get a wide variety of vegetables or make them a meal that combines certain nutritional necessities, the book discusses foods, portions, and servings for a variety of different health needs. It also tells you exactly what's good and bad about different foods.
For instance, an avocado has three times the amount of potassium as a banana.
