I got this book the other day for my daughter, but I can't seemed to put it down to send it to her. I found the information very interesting. The recipes seem easy to follow. I have only tried the recipe for Soothing Ginger-Honey Drink and it was easy to follow. I plan to try several other of the recipes. There are several ingredients that I hope I don't have a difficult time purchasing, but the book gives you several options on where to purchase the less common ingredients. Overall I highly recommend this book to anyone who is interested in healthy eating alternatives.

It's a very informative book, except for some chinese characters not showing up and coming up in little rectangles in my nook,  I would give it 5 stars.  The authors break down what each recipe is for. I am looking forward to trying them out in the near future.
