Reviews - What do customers think about Healthy Foods : An Irreverent Guide to Understanding Nutrition and Feeding Your Family Well?

Healthy Eating  Jun 9, 2007
I feel that this book has helped alot to get to the place of where we all know we can make good food for our famillies in no time..Also it had some great references for getting dinner made and for the week have it made easier with freezing stuff
One of my favorite cookbooks!  May 13, 2007
I am a woman with many cookbooks, but I find myself only using 2 consistantly and this is one of them! We love all of the muffin recipes, and as a busy mom, its great to have something easy and healthy for the kids. The ingredients are readily found at your local health food or whole foods store. Besides being a good cookbook, it is a fun book to read with some good information.
Wonderful...what every mom needs  Jan 17, 2007
This book is wonderful to point out all the mistakes moms who are rushed and stressed usually make. I know I do!
The advice is great and the recipes are wonderful! We have to be so careful what we eat now, this book help get you on the road to healthier thinking and eating.
Good information  Aug 25, 2006
Iliked this book. It gave alot of helpful, healthy info. I just wish that it had listed the fiber amount for each recipe. Makes Weight Watcher point counting easier.
Good effort, could have been better.  Apr 17, 2006
The good:

This book has some interesting and different recipes, and some useful nutritional information.

The bad:

I do not buy cookbooks expecting to see a lengthy discussion about fluoride, pro or con (in the author's case, con).

The book is written in a style that is chatty at best, annoying and contradictory in places at worst (where she writes about anise and tofu, for example).

There is a lot of "filler", mostly in the quotes from people at the bottom of many of the recipe pages, as well as superfluous commentary from the author above and even within some recipes. Also, several recipes could have been printed two-to-a-page, they were that short, so there is a lot of empty space in this book. The longer recipes were short on clear instructions, and while they contained some nutritional information, no information on fiber was included, which is too bad because several recipes were touted as being full of fiber.

Bottom line:

This book is better than her other books (such as Saving Dinner), but check it out of the library first. I hope the author revises this book to correct some of the errors and adds more recipes for the price.
