    This book has changed my life!

    Finally, Mark Bittman has taken all of the messages out there about diet and nutrition and our industrialized food industry and created a book that provides simple, healthy and delicious meals to be eaten throughout the day. By concentrating on eating healthy vegetables and grains throughout the majority of the day - then one finds that one is satisfied and full, while also gaining so many health benefits (and he would argue helping to save the planet by reducing our consumption of meat which increases greenhouse emissions and other waste/pollution that is detrimental to the planet).

    I have dozens of cookbooks and cook regularly, but this is by far one of the most inspiring and easy to reference books I now own. It inspires you to find new recipes at every meal (breakfast, lunch and dinner) that entice you to eat healthy. No more having to search for a recipe for those meals - he's already done that for you - and provided the simple instructions to go with it. Bravo!

    Honest assesment of what and how we eat.

    Mark Bittman gives a practical and entertaining view of food and how we as human beings eat or should I say over eat. The first half of the book tells us that we should eat well but that our our over indulgence is bad for both our health and for the environment. The second half of the book presents practical and easy recipes that are delicious. The breakfast couscous is very good.
    Enjoy, I still do.

    Everyone should read this book.

    I have been seeing Matk Bittman on the Today Show on cooking segments for a while now. He talks about how he lost weight by eating more whole grains and fruits and veggies and it doesn't have to be a big sacrafice. I got this book intersted in the recipies. I got so much more. I have been educated on how big government and business has helped to make all of us so unhealthy and obease. We have been being poisioned for the last couple of generations. I always said the closer your food comes form the ground the better but there is a lot more to it like anything that sounds simple. Cholestorol levels have made me want to find ways to eat more grains less meat but the polotics, global warming, and health behind it makes a lot of sense too. So not just for the recipies but to learn how much some simple changes can make everything a little better makes this book a great read.

    Valuable book to read and live by

    I found this book so extraordinarily useful and inspiring that I read it three times, read it to others, quote from it (especially why drinking soda from a can is so, well, so not very good for the environment) and have made simple changes that make me feel better about my diet, my cooking and my planet. The author offers a sensible, easy way to change your diet, get healthier, thinner and eat with more conscience and respect for the planet. He is middle-of-the roaad but on the high road in life. Loved it and highly recommend it to you -- and anyone you know.
