I loved this book, the recipes are very achievable and delicious too. Only thing I wouldn't use is the "just like sugar" product but the book does suggest alternatives and reasons why certain ingredients are used.

I enjoyed the reasoning and explanations throughout, there are more than a few favourites that I will use time and again, an excellent book, well put together.

This was one of the recommendations from the Wheat Belly book.
I have not tried many of them but the photography is inspiring

HASH(0x9989c4e0) out of 5 stars Good Recipes, Poor Design 8 May 2012
By J. Herman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this cookbook because I am on a low-carb diet and had started to use coconut flour and almond flour in my baking instead of wheat flour, and this cookbook uses these two flours almost exclusively. I have tried a few of the recipes now and they all came out good. This cookbook also gives a lot of helpful information on the different ingredients including their different health benefits.

My first complaint about this cookbook is the use of incredibly expensive ingredients. I understand that almond flour and coconut flour are expensive, and I understand that all natural sugar substitutes are also expensive, but many recipes call for three different types of sugar substitutes: erythritol, stevia glycerite, and Just Like Sugar. The cookbook also uses ChocoPerfection Bar for a lot of the chocolate in recipes, and this chocolate bar is crazy expensive. To buy all the ingredients necessary, you are easily spending over $100 just to be able to make one recipe.

My other complaint is the amateur design and editing of the cookbook. For example, when designating the temperature to set the oven, recipes state either 350 degrees, 350 degrees F, 350 degrees Fahrenheit, or 350°F. Some recipes give the Celsius temperature too, but most do not. There is no consistent format to any of the recipes. And there are so many typos. Halfway through the tip in the left margin on page 22 one sentence stops in the middle of a word then the tip continues with a different sentence. The ingredients list for the chocolate chip cookie recipe calls for Just Like Sugar, but the directions say Just Like Brown Sugar. I'm not sure which one is supposed to be used. While all of these errors don't ruin the recipes or the cookbook, I found them to be quite annoying.

There is no publisher or copyright information listed anywhere in the book, so I am guessing this cookbook is self published by the author. I think the recipes are solid recipes, but the cookbook could certainly use a professional editor and publisher.

HASH(0x996fe294) out of 5 stars Great Recipes 29 Nov. 2011
By HappyLight - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I bought this book along with a few of the other books by Maria Emmerich. I have followed a low carb diet for some time and was looking for new recipes to change things up a bit. Her book has a lot of delicious recipes - and good information about nutrition and the ingredients that are used in the recipes. I have used many of the recipes and a lot of the information to help myself and my family eat healthier. My kids loved the recipes I have made from this book. I am thinking of getting this book for my dad - so he can get an over view of how he can change his diet and improve his health. I really loved that the author included so many color photos that are included in the book. I also highly recommend Maria's other books especially Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism - if you really want to understand how to change your diet to improve your health.

HASH(0x996fe270) out of 5 stars Get your sweet tooth on! 16 April 2012
By croixriver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have all of Maria's books and this is my latest purchase. Pure nummy and a bunch of eye candy too! I've been seen in my pjs browsing the beautiful pics for hours and NO one gives me a hard time, since they know it means that dessert or pastries the next day will be the result. I've been living the low carb life style with Maria as my guide and I have never had so many sweets in my diet or so much fun in my kitchen. Prior to Following Maria's advice, I was training for consecutive marathons, eating low calories/fat but kept gaining weight AND was miserable, going three years with a severe sleep disorder but that was then. Now, thanks to the recipes and clear and concise instructions and inspiration from her books I never lament what low carbers can't eat, instead I enjoy challenging my selfe to add such lovely recipes as lemon poppy seed muffins and deliciouse waffles and mocha fudge tort to my repertoire. Honestly, there is so much marketing out there even in the low carb world, but not all of it is true and The Art of Eating Healthy offers solid understanding as to how and why to make these healthy nutrition choices. And by the way, I've lost over 25 lbs and went from a bulging size 14 to a 6 in 6 months and enjoying a good nights sleep every night with less than half of the excercise as I was doing before. This book puts an end to the low carb myth that it's all about eggs and mozzerella sticks. And it's not just about carbs, it's about eating whole natural foods, no gimmicks. Her newly updated Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism would be a great companion to this book. Sweet Dreams.

HASH(0x998c8aec) out of 5 stars Have to dig through informational parts to get to recipes - poor layout 23 July 2013
By singer55 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have purchased several of Maria's books in Kindle format and a consistent style of her writing is to share her knowledge all throughout the book ... literally, ALL throughout the book.
A simpler format, and one much easier to follow, would be to separate the recipes into their own section, so one can easily find the recipe list. Keep all your information/knowledge in its own section!
It's even difficult to get through the Table of Contents (TOC). Once the TOC gets past her basic information (which, by the way, is repeated in ALL her books I've purchased so far, with the same mistakes and everything; such as when she provides information on the benefits of "Coconut Flour," but that section ends up giving information that pertains to Coconut OIL and all ITS benefits), you finally see the word "Recipes" followed by Carmel (sic) Sauce and Chocolate Sauce.
However, next (in the TOC) is her info on Blood Pressure, Cavities and Bone Health; then, finally another recipe follows for Cream of "Whey" Cereal. Then, we get another info section on Coconut Oil and Weight Loss, followed by another recipe, this one for Granola. This goes on throughout the rest of the Table of Contents and, thus, the book.
I just think the format is all wrong and it would have been easier to see a list of recipes only, rather than having to get past all the informational sections along the way.
I rate this book 3 stars mainly for the nontraditional way she formats her books but also because I doubt very seriously I will ever get to use any of these recipes because of the sweeteners chosen. I can't honestly say what I expected, but after reading the reviews for erythritol, stevia glycerite, Just Like Sugar, and other sweeteners she chooses for her recipes, I'm not convinced I want to spend the money these items cost in order to "try" them to see 1) if I like them, and 2) if my BODY likes them.
I will say this about Maria's information: I agree with much of what she has to say and am trying to incorporate a clean, healthy lifestyle, making better choices to achieve better health. So, while I'm thankful for the knowledge I've gained through reading her books and her blog, I regret this particular purchase. I have a sweet tooth that has been my dieting/health downfall through the years and I was really looking forward to being able to have some desserts, but I don't see this happening ... not with this book.

HASH(0x9991e540) out of 5 stars This is the best dessert book yet! 22 Nov. 2011
By Becca Oberle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I have tried most of the recipes in this book and they have all been very, very good. This is her first color book and it's so fun to see the finished product in big, color pictures. Not only is this book full of her wonderful desserts, but it has a lot of fun facts and short reads on how certain foods can affect our system/body/health. This is the perfect cookbook and I already can't wait for the next one!
