Excellent!! My favorite cookbook Jun 11, 2008
I have to say, this is my favorite cookbook!! I am a vegan living in a small town and i have been able to try any recipe i want as the ingredients are easy to find. Every recipe I have tried has been reliably good...good enough for me to invite friends before i have even taste tested it. My favorite recipes so far include the kung pao tofu, the javanese tofu, the oat burgers, and BBQ lentils. Yum!! Also, very useful references including wine pairings, cooking whole grains...etc.
found recipes I've been looking for! Jun 5, 2008
We moved from a city in NC that had a Whole Foods Market (which used to be called Wellspring) to one in which there was none (Indianapolis). There were so many salads that I loved from Whole Foods that I had adapted into my own recipes that I thought I could get by without having the store nearby. When I lost my version of "smoked mozzarella pasta salad," I went to the Internet to see if I could find an approximation. Imagine my delight when I stumbled across this cookbook. Even better, the recipe in the book for smoked moz pasta salad was better than mine. I was so happy with it that I bought another cookbook for my Mom. She is also thrilled. There are many, many great recipes. If you are one who needs to have color pictures, this is not the book for you. I would rate the cooking skill needed for this book to be a novice+. However, you have to appreciate how important it is to have the freshest and best ingredients possible.
You call this a cookbook? May 15, 2008
Whole Foods makes so many great fresh foods that people will still go to the store for even if you put it in a cookbook. I would love the recipe for the Lemon White Chocolate Coconut cookies, Oatmeal Cookies and their delicious Turkey Lime salad. You need a better cookbook then this.
Great information, great eats! Mar 9, 2008
Exceptional gluten and dairy free recipes. Beautiful and nutritious food! I love The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook, and recommend it to my patients. Ali Segerstein has an extensive background as a personal chef and Tom Malterre is an extraordinary nutritionist. Their combined expertise has created one amazing cookbook that is a must do for your health.
Excellent cookbook Feb 13, 2008
