This is a must have book, what a brave lady, good recipes for hearty types, and if it's good enough for President O'Bahma (apologies for spelling) it's good enough for me .

Nice simple recipes that whilst healthy and hopefully could help with slimming, the dishes don't all taste too healthy. Index is a bit odd, laid out in mood as opposed to main ingredient or the name of the dish

Before I'd been given this cookery book I'd never heard of Sally Bee and her dramatic, and devastating, illness that converted her to promoting healthy eating. Whilst you have to admire the sheer strength of will to recover and to go onto live a full and active life, as well as become a charity ambassador and healthy eating advisor, this first edition of her cookery book is definitely not one I'd recommend for everyone.

The good points: If you're interested in finding out about healthier eating, and have rarely cooked before, then potentially this book could be a real help. The text is easy to read, the recipes are varied enough that a novice home cook can find something new or different to try that they (and family and friends) might all enjoy. Sally Bee makes the valid point that almost anyone can learn to cook and that having more control over what you eat is a good aim for a healthier and balanced diet. There are plenty of basic and familiar recipes to try.

The less good points: If you're a more experienced home cook the importance of healthy eating is one that you probably already know about, and there is little here that you wouldn't already have in other books, magazines or free recipe cards. Omelette, burgers, lasagne, chilli, roasted vegetables, sardines on toast, mozzarella on toast - all are common enough recipes these days. There are more adventurous-sounding recipes, marinated sea bass or scallops with butternut squash, but these can be quite expensive for their main ingredients. I find it hard to imagine that most families would be tucking into a plate of scallops on a regular basis.

Whether experienced or a beginner; a massive oversight in this book is there is absolutely no information on the recipes' nutritional value.
