Each recipe I've tried so far had to be modified to work. Following the directions does not give you a yummy dish. But if you know enough about cooking to adjust the recipe then this recipe book is okay. One recipe is totally awful and I can't imagine it ever worked. The recipes in this book were not proofread/trialed very well. You are better off going to their website and looking up current recipes.
If you are thinking this a book for recipes containing sea weed and soy beans, and an aura of good nature, you will get all three but mostly you will get some great recipes. This book isn't about extreme diets that the majority of the population in the US eats, but its about good food. As others have stated all recipes in this book do not always watch salt and fat intake, we will assume if you are on a specialized diet you will follow it. While fat in the diet may be bad for anyone that doesn't eat it in moderation, it makes some things taste better. Each recipe does contain all nutritional info such as calories, fat saturated and unsaturated, cholestrol, so you are armed with the info you need to make wise choices.
Let's look at the wonderful range of recipes, Whole Foods has always had a unique position catering to Vegetarians, and Meat Eaters, this book accomodates both very well. If you are Vegan you may want to thumb through a copy before you purchase as there tend to be a fewer amount of recipes for Vegans. Recipes include things like Chipotle Potato Salad which was just yummy, Creole Rice and Bean Soup, Panang Green Pea Soup, all sorts of delicious desserts, salads, and much more. If you are a person that likes to experiment with the every day, this book is for you.
There is a recipe on each page. Each recipe is written very clearly and the instructions are easy to follow. Most recipes have a paragraph about each recipe. For example the Chipotle peppers are really dried jalopeno peppers that are smoked, I found this out when I made the Chipolte Potato Salad. The recipes are something you would like to make for company. I personally loved this book, and the variety of recipes found in here.
Not quite what I thought it would be...
I love the prepared food at Whole Foods but it can be so expensive. I bought this simply for the smoked mozzarella pasta salad recipe. I fell in love with a lot of the other recipes too. The cookbook is great, even without illustrations.
This cookbook is a great find. If you love eating whole foods, then you should check this book out! Great recipes. I love going up and down the Whole Foods grocery isles and finding more delicious healthy items to feed my family. But as I was encouraged, you just have to jump all the way in. That has been the push I needed. Getting rid of processed, chemical and unhealthy foods is not as hard to do, if you have other healthy foods that taste even better to trade it with. I started with bread, then incorporated more fruit and veggies. We feel better just from doing that! Now we are replacing sugar with healthier alternatives (and not the chemical unhealthy alternatives). My family and I were brought up eating the All American diet. So, if we can change so can anyone. Thanks!
I purchased this book as a reference book. It's simple in black & white with no thrills. I'm a professional cook. Maybe it has some good ideas that will make us some money.
Very good book, food is the same as it is in the store
The recipes I have made are delicious. I wish they were more calorie conscious. I will say, however, there are still several of light recipes. There are vegetarian and vegan dishes. There are serving suggestions that sound delicious as well. Most of these can be made by a novice cook like myself. They're quiet vegetable oriented so if you live with carnivores...they may not love everything you make. I have had mixed reviews myself. There are kid recipes, I made some for my boy...he's REALLY picky so again I had mixed reviews. If you watch your carbs...or have gluten allergy or intolerance this may not be a perfect fit. There are many whole grain based dishes. There is also a ton of helpful information like how to cook quinoa or what these foods are with funny to cook vegetables you can't pronounce! Even the pronunciation! I feel like....trendy now :) I enjoy the foods I make even I am the one who ends up eating it! If you are open minded, love vegetables, and are wanting to learn how to make new things with odd combinations that sound bad but taste amazing...get it. I love this book....

Recipes are divided into: Soups, Snacks, Sandwiches/Wraps and quesadillas, grains/pasta/noodles, vegetable dishes, casseroles, drinks, and kid friendly....
