In one week, this has become my favorite cookbook.

on 10/17/2005

I've only had this cookbook for a little over a week and it has become my new best friend. My husband has been a STRICT "South Beacher" for a couple of months and I've been following it loosely because I like the basic premise of whole grains, low fat, etc. The only drawback I found with the recipes in the original diet book (which were still great, by the way) was that I felt I was doing a little too much cooking for my busy schedule. This book solves that problem beautifully! First, all the ingredients are things that I can find readily in my supermarkets or Whole Foods. All the ingredients are NORMAL foods that NORMAL people eat, nothing artificial except for the sweeteners. And for one who tends to avoid packaged convenience foods but has no time, this cookbook is a godsend. They even have a recipe for barbeque sauce! Everything you make is from scratch, but tastes like restaurant food! Also, the pages have a color-coded strip indicating into which phase of the diet each recipe fits. So far, we have LOVED the spinach & goat cheese stuffed chicken breast, lamb chops with chimichurri sauce (yum!), green tea truffles and the mini cocoa swirl cheese cakes. We were eating all of these foods saying we couldn't believe this stuff was diet food! Finally, a cookbook that really does what it claims - puts very delicious, healthy food on your table fast. I would buy this cookbook even if I had no interest in the diet itself, just because the recipes are so great, so varied, and so easy. I'll be buying several copies for Christmas gifts. Enjoy!

Praise
"Noting that a variety of foods and recipes combats the repetition and boredom that are many dieters' downfall, Agatston presents a wide array of choices, with plenty of enticing fish and vegetarian dishes."
From the Publisher
Annotation Arthur Agatston, the cardiologist who invented the popular South Beach diet promoting the awareness of "good" fats and "good" carbs based on the glycemic index, follows up with a book of 200 recipes. They include Coconut Chicken, Crab Royale, a devastating flourless chocolate cake, and a section on fat-free dips for parties. The diet is intended for quick weight loss, but it is really based on permanently changing the way one eats--and these recipes can be an important step in that direction.
Editors Note A companion to the best-selling The South Beach Diet presents more than two hundred additional recipes that demonstrate how to eat healthfully without compromising taste, outlining the diet's basic philosophies and sharing a range of personal success stories.
