Eat To Live Cookbook

I've had the book Eat to Live Cookbook: 200 Delicious Nutrient-Rich Recipes for Fast and Sustained Weight Loss, Reversing Disease, and Lifelong Health for almost 2 weeks but I didn't want to review it until I put it to the test. It passed, with flying colors!

I purchased the kindle version with a bit of trepidation. Kindle cookbooks are not always easy to navigate. I've returned a few of them for this reason. Yet I love having them on my kindle because it makes pulling them up and using them quite easy. It's also very space conscious in a smaller than small kitchen.

This kindle book is beautifully formatted with the recipes being well chaptered within categories and also linked from a recipe table of contents.

I've prepared about 6 recipes from the cookbook and they were all delicious and also family approved. My family is not totally salt free so for them to enjoy not just one salt-free recipe but 6 is a major deal.

There's a mix of complicated and more simple complicated recipes. I chose the more simple simply because of the amount of time I have for cooking. Over the holidays I hope to indulge myself in some of the more time intensive recipes.

The recipes in the book are plant based although there is a short section with recipes that contain modest amounts of animal products.  Some of the recipes are repeats from other Dr. Fuhrman books. Some of the repeats are tweaked slightly.

Having this cookbook on your shelf - or on your kindle - will certainly make planted based eating more delicious. I highly recommend it!
