    I'm not what you'd call a health food junkie and I was quite skeptical of the green smoothies at first since I'm not a huge fan of spinach or kale either. Tried the melon smoothie with spinach and actually enjoyed it! So far I've made the homemade granola, and then used it in the breakfast berry parfait. So delicious even my fast-food-loving husband loved it! Can't wait to try more recipes - there are already 20+ I have earmarked and I just got the book! The recipes are easy to follow and I really like that the nutrition facts are printed for each one. Also valuable was that the others took time to introduce the theory behind why this stuff is good for you.

    Fantastic guide!
    Like many Baby Boomers, I have developed a new-found interest in my health and was searching for recipes that would aid my "project." I am neither an enthusiastic nor a creative cook, and the cookbooks I found were much too complicated and demanded more time than I was willing to give. A former student recommend this book, and am I glad she did. The recipes are easy and require no special skills, for which I am especially grateful. No exotic ingredients are require, and, best of all, these dishes can be made in record time. The dishes take me out of my "comfort zone"---I've discovered kale! Most importantly, these dishes are amazingly delicious even for those, like my husband, who believe only hot dogs should be considered "food." I heartily recommend this cookbook to everyone, whether or not you have health concerns. Maybe, like I did, you'll discover that eating healthy can also be easy, fun, and tasty!

    After hiring Chef Anna Zulaica's San Francisco Bay Area catering

    After hiring Chef Anna Zulaica's San Francisco Bay Area catering company, Presto! Catering to cater a dinner for colleagues a few years ago I knew her recipes were wonderful -- healthy, tasty, visually attractive, and crowd pleasers. So I was excited to learn she and her colleagues Dr. Snyder and Dr. Clum were publishing a cookbook based on their medical knowledge and Anna's culinary skills. As soon as the book arrived I rushed to the grocery store to buy ingredients to make the Kale and Butternut Squash Saute (pg 202). I knew if anyone could make the super vegetable Kale pleasing, it would be Chef Zulaica and I was right. The dish is wonderful and true to the cookbook it only took 30 minutes start to finish. I bought the butternut squash that was already cubed at the grocery and putting the dish together was a breeze. I did cook the squash the full 15 minutes (10 - 15 recommended) because I like it a little softer, but can cook it to your taste if you prefer it firmer. And I loved that the red chili pepper flakes are added to taste so that I could add just enough to give it a wonderful pizzazz without overwhelming the dish with spiciness. And the slight tang from the pecorino romano cheese was the perfect addition. Thank you to her team and to Chef "Zoo-like-a" -- I like-a your book very much!
