What People Are Saying

Suzanne Somers
This is the cookbook to use to lose weight. Dr. Schwarzbein is in the vanguard of the new medicine. Her Five Step approach to balancing the hormones of the body and staving off the accelerated aging process works! Anyone who has battled weight problems, addictions, heart disease, osteoporosis, diabetes or high cholesterol levels should read this incredible book and benefit. Suzanne Somers
Larry Hagman
When I had my liver transplant four years ago, I was diagnosed as diabetic and knew I had to make some serious eating and lifestyle changes. To my relief, after reading The Schwarzbein Principle I found that those changes were going to be pretty easy. I could eat all the red meat, eggs, butter and cream I wanted. I lost 25 pounds in five months and I look and feel better. My cholesterol level is the best it's ever been and I am healthier than I have been in years. I no longer have to inject insulin because my diabetes is under control.

Makes 4 side-dish servings • Each serving: 3 grams protein 15 grams carbohydrate


1 large sweet potato, peeled and chopped into 1-inch cubes


1 tablespoon pure-pressed extra virgin olive oil


1 cup green beans, ends trimmed, sliced diagonally into 1-inch pieces


1 tablespoon pure-pressed extra virgin olive oil


freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1 coarsely chopped red onion


1 red bell pepper, chopped into large chunks


8 ounces brown or white mushrooms, stemmed and left whole


2 medium zucchini, chopped into 1/4-inch rounds


1 tablespoon pure-pressed extra virgin olive oil


1/4 cup balsamic vinegar


2 teaspoons Dijon mustard


1/4 cup slivered fresh basil or minced parsley, for garnish


Preheat oven to 400°. Combine sweet potatoes and green beans with 1 tablespoon olive oil and black pepper. Arrange on a lightly greased baking sheet and roast, turning occasionally.


In a medium bowl, toss red onion and bell pepper with 1 tablespoon olive oil and black pepper. When sweet potatoes and beans have roasted for about 10 minutes, remove baking sheet from oven and add onion and pepper mixture, stirring well to mix. Return to oven.


While potato, bean, onion and pepper combination is roasting, combine mushrooms and zucchini and mix with 1 tablespoon olive oil and black pepper. When potato, bean, onion and pepper combination has roasted together for 5 to 10 minutes, add mushroom and zucchini mixture, stirring well to mix. Roast all together for about 5 to 10 minutes until vegetables are nicely browned and tender. Remove from oven.


In a medium serving bowl, toss all roasted vegetables with balsamic vinegar mixed with mustard. Sprinkle with chopped fresh basil or parsley. Serve at room temperature.




Grilled Chicken Breasts with Artichoke Cream Sauce

Makes 4 servings •Each serving: 58 grams protein • 6 grams carbohydrate


2 pounds boneless chicken breasts


1 tablespoon Dijon mustard


1 red bell pepper or 1/4 cup store-bought roasted red bell peppers


2 tablespoons pure-pressed extra virgin olive oil


1 thinly sliced red onion


1 minced garlic clove


1 1/2 cups marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped


2 tablespoons slivered fresh basil, or 2 teaspoons dried basil


freshly ground black pepper, to taste


1/2 cup all-dairy heavy cream


1/4 cup dry white wine


1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice


11/2 teaspoons grated lemon zest


dash cayenne pepper


4 whole fresh basil leaves, for garnish



Rinse chicken under cold water and pat dry with paper towels. Rub chicken breasts with mustard. Cover and marinate, refrigerated 1 to 2 hours.


If using a fresh red bell pepper, roast pepper directly over a gas flame or on a rack under a preheated broiler. Using tongs, turn pepper frequently until blistered and blackened on all sides. Place pepper in a bowl with a plate on top. Let steam for 15 minutes to loosen skin. Peel off all charred skin. Discard skin along with seeds. Cut roasted flesh into thin slivers.


In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add onion and garlic and sauté until softened, about 5 minutes. Add roasted red pepper strips, artichoke hearts, basil, black pepper, cream and wine. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and add lemon juice, lemon zest and cayenne pepper. Simmer until sauce is thickened and reduced by N, about 5 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Taste, and adjust seasonings.


Prepare barbecue or preheat broiler.


Grill chicken over hot coals; or broil chicken on a greased rack with a tinfoil-lined baking sheet underneath. Broil 3 inches from heat source, until meat is tender, about 5 to 8 minutes per side. Spoon some sauce on each plate and arrange a grilled chicken breast on top. Garnish with whole, fresh basil leaves.
