zoned out Dec 28, 2007
not satisfied with the recipes I tried. Either they needed a sauce because it was too dry or they needed spices for taste. Will try to return this book
Several Great Recipes Nov 1, 2007
This book has several great recipes that my husband and I have tried on the zone diet. Not every recipe is great, but most are. There are unique ideas in it that are not in other zone books. I would reccommend the Salmon and Fennel dish - we would eat it even it we werent on the zone!
Excellent Jan 9, 2007
Great variety of Zone Diet recipes. Some of them are a bit time consuming but the end results are always outstanding. Very high tasty level on all of the recipes which is very important when one is dieting.
Good Healthy Eating Jul 11, 2006
I first came across this book at the library. I was looking for a diet cookbook. I am so glad I found this cookbook. The recipes are easy to follow and are so delicious. I only made one recipe that I didn't like and that is because I don't like dill pickles. This cookbook has helped me get started on eating healthy and enjoying it. Wonderful vegetable and fruit combinations. Best cookbook I ever bought. I would recommend this cookbook even if you don't need to lose weight.
Quick & Easy with a Touch of Class Jun 6, 2006
Fantastic Cookbook! My boyfriend and I started doing The Zone a week and a half ago, and this cookbook has become our Bible. He comes home from work EXCITED to see which recipe I've chosen for the night, even though we're dieting. Its ingredients are the perfect combination of accessible and unique; Rachel Ray meets The Iron Chef. The recipes are easy but include enough "new" foods to keep this diet from getting boring. For people who like trying new foods but hate complicated cookbooks that include lots of expensive items (from which you only use 1tsp, each, of course) - this cookbook is for you! You should have Protein Powder and lots of avocados and/or nuts in your kitchen; other than that, no major purchases required. The book is divided into chapters based on meals (Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner) and Snacks. The Breakfast section includes smoothies with fresh & frozen fruit, omeletes with feta, vegetables, and seasonings, as well as hot cereal, yogurt, and cottage cheese variations. Lunches and Dinners are interesting takes on traditional, non-Zone sandwiches, salads, burgers, and soups. They include not only chicken and turkey, but also fish (mahi mahi, sea bass, tuna, scallops, AND shrimp), pork, beef, tofu, and tempeh. While I wish each ingredient listed how much of each "Zone block" it contributed to the recipe, substitutions become fairly obvious as you begin to recognize the Zone block system. To facilitate substitutions, I recommend pairing this book with one of Dr. Barry Sears's books so that you have a firm grip on the diet itself. Each recipe in Ms. Walker's book is converted into Zone Blocks, but you'll need the other book(s) to explain what those blocks are and how many you should eat.
I almost forgot the most important thing - the food TASTES SOOOO GOOD! (And not diet-good; GOOD-good!)
