Cooking the Whole Foods Way

Great recipes! This cookbook was quite a disappointment. The author has a nice story in the beginning about how she is basically able to beat terminal cancer by changing her diet.

It's a good story, but not medically sound in my opinion. Also, the author mentions how easy her recipes are and also seems shocked that people actually buy salad-in-bag or box instead of the whole head of lettuce and accompanying veggies. I, for one, cook for one, so I don't want to buy a whole head of lettuce and throw half away. Also, I don't want to buy a bag of carrots just for one carrot salad bars in grocery stores don't exist in my town yet.
Anyway, I guess that's not really surprising since she is cooking "whole" foods. But ultimately, none of the recipes looked appealing, and I didn't make a single one. See, the ingredients are not easy-to-find, at least here in my 35, person town. I mean, I can buy miso at the health foods store, but she's got like 5 different kinds of miso, and it's almost every recipe. Other ingredients like brown rice syrup? Most of the recipes are Asian and have Asian produce, which is also a problem for me.
Maybe this would be a good book if you live down the street from an amazing Farmer's Market.

It's not boring though. I wasnt able to keep it long enough to try any of the recipes but they definitely look good. She was a pastry chef before she got into macrobiotics so talks about how "healthy" baked goods usually taste awful and she kept trying recipes until hers tasted good. I'd like to t She talks about how different foods affect your body, digestion, metabolism, blood sugar, etc.
I'd like to test them out. I've been really into reading cookbooks lately. I don't really understand the macrobiotic thing though. Jul 23, Jennifer rated it did not like it Shelves: cookbooks. I have had this book for years. I'll flip through it once in a while but have yet to make a recipe from it that was memorable or that I would make again. I think I was put off by this book because the author is kind of preachy about the Macrobiotic diet and even claims it cured her of a deathly illness.
Apr 17, H. Excellent resource! Hundreds of vegan, whole food recipes, along with invaluable information on cooking healthy foods from the familiar to the downright weird.
If you want to live vegan, or just get some recipe ideas, this is a good place to start. Feb 10, missy jean rated it it was ok.

Macrobiotic recipes. I tried a couple of recipes I liked, but I can't really stand the taste of sea vegetables which are important in macrobiotic cooking, apparently so a lot of the recipes look gross to me. Mar 15, Kate rated it liked it Shelves: cookbooks. Good cookbook but it should be called "Cooking The Macrobiotic Way.
Overall, I like it. Jun 11, Beth Lequeuvre rated it it was ok. Hard to find or pronounce not in my price range ingredients along with a palate that doesn't quite match mine. I think it's a good idea, just wasn't turned into a convert. May 15, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: year , author-female , read-non-fiction. Feb 21, Summer rated it liked it. Lots of soy, wheat and other things I would not care to eat. If you eat wheat, soy and corn, you are sure to find some good recipes.
Apr 16, jen rated it liked it. This is a good cookbook for healthy ideas, but I don't love all of the flavors so I haven't used it as much. It's based on macrobiotic principles but it's not bland or boring at all. Aug 09, Nicole rated it it was amazing. The author is entertaining and engaging.
