Overview

The flavor-filled lifestyle that's sweeping the country just got easier to follow!

With its balanced, sane approach to eating, The Sonoma Diet(tm) is more than an eating plan-it's a healthy lifestyle you can live with.

More than 150 flavorful recipes, from breakfast to dinner, are designed for Wave 1, 2, or 3, so it's easy to tell when each recipe is appropriate. There's even a pull-out guide, so it's easy to follow the diet even when you're on the go.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book aims to help Sonoma dieters adopt healthful eating habits for life by supplying no-nonsense recipes that feature the diet's ten power foods. Guttersen, a dietician and nutritional consultant to the Culinary Institute of America, offers sound advice on building a pantry, eating seasonally, salting food judiciously, and enhancing flavor through cooking techniques. Recipes are labeled according to the appropriate Sonoma Diet Wave and offer estimated preparation and cooking times, nutritional information, side dish recommendations, and, in many cases, wine pairing suggestions. Bringing it all back home one last time, Guttersen concludes with more complicated recipes from celebrated Sonoma restaurants and wineries. Compared with the nutritional long division required of so many calorie- and carb-counting diets, Guttersen's gentle emphasis on terroir (the effect of soil, climate, and altitude on a wine's flavor) and the importance of savoring good food in good company seems almost revolutionary. Unlike many diet companion cookbooks, this one does not suffer from blatant redundancy of the mother text, and Guttersen's straightforward recipes should also appeal to readers who might be new to the Sonoma diet. Recommended for all public libraries.

This cookbook was not for me. I returned book to store. Most recipes were good, but where I live some ingredients aren't available. It wasn't what I wanted for my cookbook collection.
