Nice cookbook, accomplishes what it sets out to do!

This is definitely their best recipe collection for supporting the McDougall program. It is also one of the few ALL VEGAN cookbooks out there so vegans who aren't into following the program will still appreciate the effort.The recipes were not hard to make and did not use any strange ingredients. They are pretty basic and should appeal to the average palate and the most basic of cooks. The goal with this book was not gourmet cookery, but simple, fast, effective, and relatively tasty food. I think that overall they achieved that goal and the time estimates for how long a recipe will take are pretty much accurate.The recipes are set up with lots of room to write your own adjustments in the margins, the illustrations are pleasant but low-key so as not to overpower the text.

The journey to healthy eating
By Troy Barnett - January 30, 2004
I started changing my eating habits about 18 months ago. I quit eating meat, however, I was still eating fish. I added a lot of raw foods and then found www.notmilk.com. I started the McDougall way of eating and daily exercising 12/01/03. My blood pressure went down 40 points on the second day. I have also lost 23 pounds. The Quick & Easy cookbook is wonderful. Every recipe that I have tried has been good. I brought it with me on my vacation in Maui. My daughter and her family here are Vegans. They are going to order the cookbook because they also love the recipes. This is a great addition to anyone's cookbook collection.
This is a terrific cookbook, with dozens of easy recipes

I'm always looking for fast, easy, and nutritious meals to make after work, and this cookbook fills that need. While I don't always follow a diet as strict as the McDougall's, the recipes make it so simple there's almost no excuse! The recipes also lend themselves to the addition of meat, for my non-vegetarian husband.I highly recommend this book. I think it would be an excellent cookbook for a new vegetarian, since the recipes are so simple and nutritionally balanced.
