    Healthy Is What This Cookbook Is!

    It is nice to find a healthy cookbook I can use to cook for my family. The recipes are very tasty and my family is enjoying the new meals.

    A GREAT way to eat healty!

    I have a few cookbooks on healthy eating, but none of them have such great recipes. Leanne writes in a humorous way, but gives so much helpful information. The recipes are delicious, and I have a 4 year old and 6 year old!

    Easy and delicious

    I have tried many of the recipes in this book and have yet to find a dud. The pistou soup is warm and filling; the rubber chicken is easy to prepare, delicious, and frugal; and I have never made an easier or tastier pizza crust than the Kneadless Pizza Dough. Even my picky family has raved over everything I've prepared from this book. Leanne's style is unpretentious and her advice is practical. I had to get over the need to have exact measurements (she occasionally refers to using a 'blob' or a 'little bit', basically relying on you to adjust for your own tastes). It is well worth the time to read the first chapters about general nutrition, written in an easily understandable form and chock full of important advice. Her chapters on food allergies and eating disorders could be lifesavers. This cookbook has quickly become the most favored one on my shelf, and I'm sure I'll have to get another one eventually because this one will be tattered and covered with food stains. It's that good.

    I loved this book! Healthy Foods is an educational, entertaining book with a great bunch of recipes my whole family loves. Making healthy foods doesn't have to be expensive health food store stuff--most ingredients came from the regular store. I like the fact that the recipes were all taste tested by families--it helps to know that these recipes not only work in real life, they became favorites for the testers. And my family too, I should add! If your family is trying to eat healthier and you need a starting place, or even if you already are eating healthy, this book will give your family creative and fun ways to enjoy eating healthier. With fun recipes like Manic Meatloaf, what's not to like?

    Fun AND healthy

    Filled with lots of real-life recipes and suggestions, this book and the author's e-zine are quickly becoming two of my favorite sources for healthy food ideas. The book includes not only yummy recipes, but short (and entertaining!) how-tos, definitions, and suggestions that range from 'Cooking Basics or How to Drive without a Map' to 'Spice Primer' and 'Ode to Garlic.' Each recipe includes author's comments and taste-tester comments.
