will make you want to eat your vegetables

Like others who have reviewed this book, I can attest to the fact that the recipes are relatively simple to prepare, very nourishing and tasty, and make you feel vital, fresh, and energized. Whenever I have guests coming over for anything, I reach for this book. Everything that comes out of it is just so delicious, guests frequently ask me for the recipes. I had a friend stay with me recently, and we had been out and about, fairly busy all day, and came back to my place too tired to spend any real time fussing in the kitchen; I reached for this book and sure enough found a tasty recipe for zucchini casadillas that were ready, along with a fruit salad, in only about 15 minutes. These recipes are so simple to prepare I've even taken some pre-prepared ingredients camping (along with tinfoil), and cooked up near gourmet meals over the campfire!This book is a compliment to an eating/lifestyle program that Dr. Dean Ornish calls the life-choice program, because he emphasises that followers of this program are making a choice to eat healthfully to make MORE of your life. And that is EXACTLY what the recipees in this book--delicious, nourishing, simple, easily adaptable--have really allowed me to do. No matter what I'm doing--entertaining, camping, or just cooking for one--I know that there is always a real treat waiting for me when I open this book.

Inspiration for Healthier Cooking

A combination of scientific research into healthier living (primarily reversing heart disease but principles apply to any of us folks who want to feel energetic and live healthy lives) and easy to follow no added fat vegetarian recipes that are arranged by menu. This book is a vast improvement over his prior book Eat More, Weigh Less because the recipes are easy to make. In his prior book Ornish was trying to prove that no-added fat vegetarian cooking can be tasty too--so all the recipes are by renowned chefs given these specific parameters--thus they tend to be too complex for those of us who are not gourmet chefs but rather everyday basic cook types.

Wonderful Recipes & Worthwhile Program

I have this cookbook well stained with use! The soups, salads, entrees and yes the Carrotcake with cream cheese frosting, are wonderful! I would recommend this book to all no matter if they are vegan, not a vegan or have health issues. I have even incorperated many of the recipes into the meals of my still meat eating family, and yes, they love them also!I will state that after I started following Ornish's program, I have lost over 20 pounds! This cookbook is easy to read, easy to use, and has been the most important investment in my life!

Scientific and easy to use!

This book was written by a respectable medical researcher whose works has been published in various medical journals...My wife and I have use those recipes and to our surprise the food look visually appealing as well as delicious! We have found the recipes easy to use. It took significantly less than than other vegetarian cookbooks (some of which are loaded with fat) took about 2 hours to make. On average, we found it took from 1/2 to 1 hour to prepare.I also highly recommend reading Part One in Ornish's earlier book, "Eat more, weigh less". That essential section laid out, in depth, the foundataion for this book.Critics who said Ornish's program is extreme or hard have obviously NEVER tried out any of the recipes in THIS book!! The critics also failed to provide evidence for this purported "difficulties." If you are still skeptical, go to the library to try out the book before buying. (I'm not sure if the libraries carry these type of books) What have you got to lose?
