This recipe book was an enjoyable experience for me. In the introduction, Marco describes how he used to eat when working full-time with long hours. Contrary to my assumptions (he is a chef), he ate lots of terribly unhealthy foods and eventually became so sick that his doctor had to intervene. Once placed on a restricted healthy diet, he was afraid that he'd be forced to eat tasteless foods while pining for the rich, gourmet foods he once enjoyed. He managed to use his skills and knowledge of food to create simple and delicious foods that are also great for your health. On the back cover the question is asked: "What is a good food day? A day when feeling well and eating well go hand in hand". This is completely possible using the recipes outlined in this book. The chapters include breakfast, salads, veggies, beans/lentils, grains, fish, meat & poultry, snacks, and sweets, leaving no meal left behind. My favorite smoothie recipe is on page 27, the Dark Berry Shake, is absolutely delicious and healthy with no added sugars. I drink it everyday! Also, the Japanese-inspired soup on page 206 is fantastic, so light and tasty and has been a huge asset in helping me lose weight. I was also very excited to see on page 213 Marco teaches us to make Flavor Pounded chicken, something I have never tried before, and now use every time we eat chicken. I highly recommend this recipe book if you are serious about eating less manufactured foods and don't mind buying a few special ingredients in order to enhance the flavor of your daily food.
