5.0 out of 5 stars Great recipes and comprehensive diet information 3 May 2014
By Jenna Anderson - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have had the original Whole Life Nutrition cookbook since it came out and I LOVE this new version. The original has been my most used cookbook over the years, hands down! This new book includes the very latest nutrition science, and I especially appreciated the information and perspective on all the latest diets including the paleo diet.

There are new chapters, and several new recipes. There is a whole chapter on cultured foods. I believe there are over 300 recipes altogether. We really enjoyed the new Quinoa tortillas and the grain free and vegan Apple Walnut Crisp. This book still contains many of our old favorites like Red Lentil Dal, Coconut Vegetable Curry, Wild Salmon with Lemon, Garlic and Thyme, Home-Style Chicken and Vegetable Stew, Raw Energy Balls, and Lemon Blueberry Pudding (I first made this pudding nearly 9 years ago and still remember my first taste, it gave me the satisfaction to continue my first elimination diet!) There are several smoothie and salad recipes that are delicious, and have been a great launching point for a whole foods lifestyle.

I did not notice the use of xanthan gum in the baked goods, which is okay with me. Instead I did see chia seeds, which we love to incorporate. The recipes have definitely been updated. I have been cooking with the Whole Life Nutrition recipes for years and I am confident that they are as creative and well developed as the previous versions. And the photos! So beautiful! I wasn't crazy about the index at first, but I am getting used to it, and I am still giving this book 5 stars because the recipes and information are the best I have found. I am very pleased to have this update on my favorite book :)

5.0 out of 5 stars The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook is a VERY well researched, informative work. 12 May 2014
By L. Townsend - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
The Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook is a VERY well researched, informative work. The title says it's a cookbook but it's much more than just a cookbook. The first chapter opens with the following Voltaire quote that I believe sets the tone for the book: "Everyone should be his own physician. We ought to assist and not force nature. Eat with moderation what agrees with your constitution. Nothing is good for the body but what we can digest. What medicine can produce digestion? Exercise. What will recruit strength? Sleep. What will alleviate incurable ills? Patience." If you believe in the what goes in, must come out philosophy, you will find something in this book to assist you in bettering your health! From the novice to the pro in the kitchen and garden, there's something for you here!

If you've watched Doctor Oz, you've probably heard of the "blue zones" which are areas around the planet where people live the longest and with the greatest health. The recipes in this book are derived from the dietary patterns found in the "blue zones." There is an excellent selection of gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free and egg-free dishes - something for everyone!

Besides the over 300 recipes, there's so much other valuable-to-your-health information that it boggles the mind. You will find the six steps to nourish your digestion system. Whole Food sensitivity is thoroughly delved into. As a celiac, I can attest that food allergies and sensitivities are far more common than we might have imagined. The authors reveal ten common sensitivities, familiar conditions associated with a food sensitivity and known triggers, if any. Various dietary lifestyles such as paleo, vegan-ism, raw, Mediterranean and many more are explained and analyzed. The books offers suggestions and tips for changing your diet to accommodate sensitivities. There's extensive sections on stocking your pantry, cooking techniques, and kitchen equipment.

The recipes are easy to follow and not complicated. From cheezy kale chips to fresh marinara sauce and dill pickles. Even the most discriminating will find something they like!

This book has found a permanent home on my bookshelf.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delicious & Wholesome!!! 14 May 2014
By MDot - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
My husband got me the Nourishing Meals Cookbook for my birthday in February and pre-ordered me the Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook, which came in a couple of weeks ago. We LOVE the recipes from both cookbooks. Within a few days of getting the Whole Life Nutrition Cookbook, we made the beef stew with swiss chard, lentil and brown rice salad, and fish tacos (we used salmon) and we devoured all of them. The chocolate avocado frosting from the Nourishing Meals Cookbook is dangerously delicious -- I found myself eating it from the container with a spoon, and when used to frost the vanilla cake topped with fresh strawberries...YUM!!! We also can't get enough of the walnut brownies from Nourishing Meals Cookbook. I can't wait to make every recipe from both books and am really looking forward to trying the fermentation recipes from Whole Life Nutrition. In addition to the recipes, the books are full of helpful information about the role our diet plays in our overall health and wellness -- I'm reading my way through the first chapters of Whole Life Nutrition and am learning new things with every turn of the page.

We can't say enough good things about the recipes that Alissa and Tom create. We try to stick to a whole foods diet as much as possible, and these recipes make it possible to do so without sacrificing flavor and variety.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Nutritional Guide and Cookbook 7 May 2014
By Deborah Ross - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is my favorite cookbook ever! Which is not an easy feat based on my many special diet needs. The recipes I have tried are enjoyed by my family. Ali and Tom have attended to every detail to make this well worth adding it to your collection. You do have a collection of cookbooks, right? Well, this would be my top pick of the 50 plus cookbooks that I own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the new cookbook 30 April 2014
By Shanna - Published on
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have their previous cookbook and it is my cooking resource. We probably use that cookbook to make 95% of our meals. Every recipe we make is really good. We are big fans! I was unsure if I should order the new one but I LOVE it and am so glad I did. I'm really excited to try all the new recipes. I really like the new layout - it is really easy to navigate. I spent literally a hour just browsing through this book when I got it in the mail.
