Packed with more than 80 recipes, this book offers easy ways to get nourishing meals on the table any time of day. It also features a comprehensive visual gallery of wholesome foods—a rainbow of plant-based ingredients like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes—that serve as building blocks for a healthy lifestyle.

This book helps you get fresh, wholesome foods on the table any time of day. Packed with naturally nourishing recipes, each dish is crafted around vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and legumes, with the addition of lean protein, low-fat dairy, and nuts and seeds to round out the meal.
For easy planning, the more than 80 recipes are organized by course and feature short ingredient lists and sensible prep times, making them achievable any day of the week. Some recipes, such as Bulgur Salad with Peppers, Chickpeas & Pistachios; Sicilian-Style Shrimp with Cauliflower & Almonds; Cashew Chicken Lettuce Tacos; and Roasted Sweet Potatoes with Cumin & Cilantro offer a simple ethnic twist or an unexpected combination of flavors.

Still others, such as Whole-Wheat Waffles with Honeyed Strawberries; Beet & Watercress Salad with Farm Eggs; and Pan-Grilled Radicchio with Salsa Verde, combine naturally nutritious raw ingredients into tempting dishes.
Williams-Sonoma Good for You also includes stunning visual galleries of key ingredients showcasing the vast array of whole foods readily available in local markets, with descriptions that reveal health benefits and suggest how to prepare them. Special features throughout the book offer additional quick ideas for using super foods, such as strawberries, kale, chiles, melons, winter squash, and more, in easy meals or snacks.

    This is a fantastic cookbook for anyone, not just those trying to eat well. The set-up of this cookbook is why I'm dying to try every single recipe. Jacobi starts with a huge chapter on knowing your ingredients. This is possibly the most important step in learning to cook well and Jacobi's chapter on it is amazing. It contains great pictures and explanations of the foods divided by culinary tastes (citrus, cabbages & crucifers, dairy, lean protein, etc). I love it! And then the book is filled with a wealth of great recipes. I've tried a couple and so far my favorite is the Roasted Black Cod with Carrot-Tarragon Purée. So delicious! I would recommend this to anyone interesting in learning more about food and with great, healthy, satisfying recipes!
