'Giada's Feel Good Food' by Food Network's nice looking star Giada De Laurentiis is combination of recipe book and her tips how to look and feel good.

Inside reader can find 120 recipes easy to prepare for all meals during the day - breakfasts, lunches, dinners, but also her innovative ideas for smoothies, juices and desserts.
The book can be additionally recommended for people who have food restrictions, because many of the dishes in it are gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan.

The book can be maybe criticized because of the author's usage a lot of exotic ingredients that cannot be viewed as conventional everyday ingredients.

In second part which is a bit atypical for this type of book, Giada is sharing her beauty advices, yoga, tips about exercise and addressing the need for sugar.

Giada's book is nicely designed and contains a large number of color images that together with its content making it a combination of health and cooking book that can be recommended for more demanding readers in terms of a healthy diet.

I'm not a big cook and I need to follow every step described in this book to prepare a tasty meal, but the ideas given here are really worth the effort. You feel full for longer without feeling 'heavy'. My bf is brilliant at cooking and he loves these recipes too. I cannot recommend this book enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great tips for feeling healthier and more energetic 5 Nov 2013
By Roxxie25 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
If truth be told, Giada clearly has good genetics and a fast metabolism. That being said, I like that this book focuses on eating well to increase energy levels and for general health/increased Immunity. I don't think she mentions weight per se once (though the recipes do include nutritional information including calories, for those who are interested). I have not tried the recipes yet, which, not surprisingly, are short on pasta and pizza. I do find her lifestyle tips helpful -- was happy to learn that she prefers yoga and walking over the gym! I am only giving it 4 stars because the "non-recipe" portions of the book are relatively sparse (though there is a lot of info on her beauty routine). There is a theme that does emerge, though, which is: nothing is "off limits" or forbidden, but eat lots of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean protein, watch your portions, limit sugar where possible, eat when you are hungry and stop when you are full, and, most importantly, enjoy and savor the food you do eat.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not her best 6 Nov 2013
By Elizabeth Ahn - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
While I truly love Giada's prior cookbooks, this one seems to be a bit odd. I love the little vignettes she tells about her life, however, the recipes are kind of weird. I have tried a few that were okay, but these recipes are not her usual standard. I agree healthy can be delicious, but some of these are repetitive (quinoa) and some are just weird (eggs with strawberries). As much as I love Giada, I would stick will Ellie Kreiger for the healthy recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, healthy, tasty flavor combinations with a "Giada" twist 9 Nov 2013
By Karen Fang - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
First of all, let me just say -- cooking healthy is challenging, especially if you are looking for food that is both flavorful, healthy, and light on the calories.

I've seen too many "diet" cookbooks that use too many weird "diet" ingredients, calling for ingredients such as artificial sweeteners, fat free dairy, and so on (ie. Rocco Dispirito in his "Now Eat this!" series -- although his Now Eat This! Italian is pretty awesome). I've always thought that they were pretty redundant, because I could have just substituted fat free/sugar free ingredients with normal recipes and get similar results.

Then there are these other cookbooks that emphasize on "a healthy twist on COMFORT foods". Seriously --I understand the whole need for comfort food recipes and all (because they are awesome of course), but I really don't need 10 "healthy" cookbooks that basically have different versions of the same old Mac & Cheese, Chilli, Sloppy Joes. It's like they (the cookbook writers) have to have a check list to check off when they are writing these cookbooks, instead of using a bit of creativity to maybe give their own twist onto them.

Giada's Feel Good Food is great because she is very creative in coming up flavor combinations for her recipes, often giving her own twist on the classics. So, instead of the oh-so-boring "miso/ ginger-soy salmon" that a lot of the diet cookbooks tend to include, she comes up with a "Grilled salmon and pineapple with avocado dressing" that has the crunchiness from the seared salmon, the sweet and tangy-ness from the pineapple, and the creaminess from the avocado dressing.

Typical to Giada's style, the recipes here tend to have a slightly "sweet", "tangy", or crunchy component to them. By that I mean she really loves adding fruits, citrus zest/ juice, and toasted nuts into her dishes -- which I think are absolutely great because they lighten up a dish, and provide a textural contrast without having to add empty calories.

I've also noticed that -- in concocting her recipes -- Giada has taken the time to include a combination of proteins, carbs, and fats in her recipes. Ie., most of her recipes are bursting full of healthy grains, veggies, and lean protein. Combine that with a low fat-yet creamy dressing, the tangy-ness of fruits, and perhaps a bit of crunch from the veg/ nuts, her meals tend to be quite "complete" nutritionally and flavor-wise. I could probably just whip up on of her recipes and not have to worry about side-dishes or having to make an extra salad.

Regarding the concern about the exotic ingredients like quinoa, I personally think it's not been such a concern for me. The most "exotic" ingredients in the book are quinoa, soba noodles, or veggies like kale, which are a little bit harder to find but are still available in most supermarkets.

All in all, I highly recommend this cookbook to people who are interested in cooking healthier, but still flavorful food.

5.0 out of 5 stars "I like to think of this book as one long recipe for well-being." 5 Nov 2013
By Leslie N. Patino - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
“I like to think of this book as one long recipe for well-being,” Giada De Laurrentiis says in the acknowledgments of "Giada’s Feel Good Food: My Healthy Recipes and Secrets." The book is broken down into recipes for each meal of the day, juices and smoothies, snacks and desserts. The introduction includes a month of menus. In addition to nutritional information, each recipe has icons denoting if it is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or dairy-free. The introduction and the tips interspersed throughout the book mostly say things we all know—pay attention to portion size, find an exercise you like and do it, use sunscreen, etc. The benefit, for me at least, is that reading those pages and seeing the photos of the dishes is like going to a pep rally. I’m pumped and raring to go.

I grabbed some paper and a pen and started reading as soon as the book downloaded to my iPad this morning. Four hours later, I have a list of the recipes I want to try soonest and a very long list for the grocery store I’m hitting next. I’ve highlighted plenty of recipes I want to try besides the Oatmeal with Olive Oil that I made for breakfast. My top priorities include the Spanish Potato Omelet, Chicken Chopped Salad in Butternut Lettuce Cups, Soba Noodle Salad and Ladybug Pops. After that, I’ll have some time to experiment with the many gluten-free recipes before our out-of-state gluten-free company arrives for Christmas.

And that oatmeal with olive oil, thyme and lemon zest that sounded a little out there? Great—even my husband agreed. I’m glad there’s some left over for tomorrow.

5.0 out of 5 stars My New Favorite Cookbook! 22 April 2014
By javajunkie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I am not a fan of "reviewers" who judge a book, either good or bad, without even trying the recipes! And I love reviews that get very specific! So here it goes!

I have to admit, I am not quick to adopt food "trends" - quinoa and kale in specific! Some critics say this book is too "weird" and they may be in part referring to these ingredients.

Even though I stick to recipes with more familiar ingredients, I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THIS COOKBOOK. I have tons of cookbooks, and some sit on the shelf with only a few tried and loved recipes. This is not one of them! Most but not all are quick and easy to put together with fresh ingredients.

I love all these recipes! Giada has found ways to deliver tons of flavor and high nutrition. If you are hesitating due to unusual ingredients, don't! I am in love with this book! And have many more recipes which I will be trying.

Dinner:
Vegetable Meatloaf- awesome! So filling and flavorful!
Southern Italian Style Chicken- tons of flavor!
California Turkey Chili- I added crushed tomatoes, but awesome. Freezes well, too.
Salmon with Lemon, Capers, and Rosemary- very good
Sole with Lemon Basil Pesto- amazing!!!!
Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard Sauce- easy enough for everyday, awesome for company! A must try!
Mahimahi with Mango Vanilla Sauce- made with halibut- delicious! (Push sauce through a stainer to eliminate pulp)
Broiled Sole with Mustard and Chive Sauce- dinner on the. Table in 20 minutes! Yummy!

Lunch:
Butter Lettuce with Pear Dressing- omitted the tuna, but just delicious!
Farfalle with Chicken and Mushrooms - good
Turkey, Kale, Brown Rice Soup- yummy! Used escarole (like often used in Italian Wedding Soup) instead of kale
Green Pea, lettuce, and Fennel Soup - surprisingly delicious!!!

Misc:
Orange Scented Almond and Olive Oil Muffins- nice!
Banana Walnut Smoothie Yummy
