I like this book a lot, but it is not just a cookbook with a bunch of recipes. It gives numerous suggestions on how to mix various foods and spices so not to get caught in a boring rut with your food. You will probably want to read thru the book and determine your taste bud style and then focus on those suggestions from there. Great options to choose from and good suggestions throughout. Can't help but make you a better and healthier cook. I only give it four stars because it is not a straight cookbook with recipes. But it does give you options aplenty to mix and match.

I must admit I have not tried the recipes, but they appear to be healthful, delicious and after stocking your kitchen according to the lists provided, can have an element of spontaneity I did read the whole introduction before the recipes and was delighted to see the mind, body, spirit approach. That is what convinced me I had made a good choice. This was a gift for a friend and I didn't have time to try the recipes before I needed to mail it.

The recipes are simple. What I like best is the section for sauces. They are easy and delicious. You can just make them and serve with a grilled vegetable or meat for a fantastic meal.

This is a book of hearty recipes and yet they are easy and quick to make. I have enjoyed several of the soup recipes and meal-in-a-bowl recipes. Pam shares her journey to weight loss and even includes a shopping list to keep essential items on hand to quickly prepare a healthy meal after a long day at work. . .

I have been working on eating right and getting fit for some time now and have found a diet much like the one Pam Anderson advocates works well: good food in sensible portions. This book has a lot of great ideas in it and she shares some of her personal story. The recipes are also very practical for a busy working person. This book is a steal at the sale price!
