I've been natural for 20 years now. There isn't much I haven't already seen. Takes a lot to wow me. This might be nice for newbies.

I've already read quite a few pieces in it and it's wonderful! My friend bought this for me and it just got here last night. I read quite a bit of it this morning and I definitely recommend this to others. It's not just a cookbook, it actually explains the benefits of eating a healthy diet and how to make the most of your fruits and veggies.

I truly enjoy all the from scratch recipes in this book. It is great to know how to make your own meat substitutes as well as alternative egg and milk products.
