I just got this beautiful book a few days ago and it is truly a work of art. Already, I am not only tantalized by the pictures and layout, but the delicious, expertly-crafted language that The Veggie Cure is written in! Every sentence is a morsel to be savored and devoured simultaneously. And the recipes look divine. So many different enticing ones to choose from. I am very interested in nutrition and consider myself pretty well-read, but the "Veggie Cure" provides so much juicy nutritional information that I never even knew about. I cannot wait to read more - and to try out these recipes!
Great book! we all know it's not so easy making all the right food choices all the time, reading about it and categorically knowing how all these wonderful vegetarian delights contribute to better health certainly helps keep the focus... a healthy lifestyle leads to a better life.
Very cool book. You take your goal: better skin, flat stomach, strong bones, whatever it is, and they tell you which vegetables help you achieve it.
Wonderful, beautiful, healthy cookbook.
Fun and Healthy! Great book about how to eat and cook veggies to help reach your nutrition, fitness, beauty and weight goals.
Phenomenal! This book is a dream come true for anyone looking to better themselves inside and out simply by eating veggies! In the Veggie Cure, the Nutrition Twins reveal how eating certain veggies can enhance how we look and more importantly, how we feel. They don't stop there though. The Nutrition Twins go the extra mile by providing delicious recipes to make it easy to eat those veggies on a daily basis. Thanks Nutrition Twins! I will definitely be buying this book for my family and friends!
