About the Author
Liz isn't afraid to admit that she loves chocolate as much as the next person. Her ability to communicate timely, relevant nutrition research, while emphasizing the need for fun food in moderation is what makes her approach to healthy eating so sane and sensible. Liz's first book, When in Doubt, Eat Broccoli! (But Leave Some Room for Chocolate) received outstanding reviews from consumers and health professionals alike.
A multi-talented home economist, teacher and actor, Mairlyn Smith loves to add a dash of comedy to her cooking. Born in Vancouver, Mairlyn always loved the view of the mountains from her parent's kitchen window. In 1976 she graduated with a degree in Home Economics from the University of British Columbia. She then returned to UBC and completed her Teaching Certificate before going on to teach Home Economics and head the Department of Fine Arts at Balmoral Junior High.

The typeface is orange and black. Orange for the sidebars; OK, but orange for the measurements - much too hard to read while you are trying to follow a recipe.
The phrase "what the heck is ....." appears more often in this book than I can stand.
The authors are competent and well qualified to research and write a cookbook. They are NOT well qualified to produce humour. Their attempts are annoying, to say the least and are a distraction from the important content of the book.
I gave it 3 stars and not 2 because the content is well detailed and is important information for those interested in good health.
I will have to work hard to glean the message from this text. The recipes I have tried so far are good; I will try more. This book will not remain in my home for its culinary creativity but rather for its nutrition information.
If you want to eat healthfully, with ease and fantastic food, you have to get this book.
Nice to find a cookbook by qualified people, with nutritional information and is fun to use.
This book has become my bible! the recipes are so easy to read, make, and eat! one of my personal favs is the 190 calorie double choc chip muffins. both Pearson and Smith make this an easy and enjoyable read.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking to lead a healthy lifestyle, especially those that are new to the health craze and looking for some direction.
