3-0 out of 5 stars What's in a Name?
Although this cook book does contain some wonderful recipes, I was very surprised to find so many of the recipes called for dairy, eggs, and/or refined sugars (brown sugar is refined). I thing the author/publisher missed the mark when they included "Healthy Cooking Without Wheat, Gluten, Dairy, Eggs, Yeast, or Refined Sugar" in the titled of this book.

Many of the cake recipes call for eggs. My wife has made several cakes using egg replacer or tofu which were better than "the real thing". In the Appendices, Dr Fenster does provide substitution tables, which are quite extensive. However, my expectation, based on the title, was that the recipes would be without wheat, gluten, dairy, eggs, yeast, or refined sugar. I am disappointed.

5-0 out of 5 stars Body pollution Diet solution
We are contaminating our bodies with the chemical foods we eat and this book displays very good diet solutions that put you on your way to much better health. Guidelines to use to help us clean out all the pollutions we've put into our bodies. I highly recomend everyone get this book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Lots of good recipes for the basics
This book covered alot of basics for me, all in one book. With a gluten and Bakers yeast allergy it offers the best homemade pizza crust recipe I have found yet! I also use this book for waffles, rolls, muffins, etc. It covers alot of the basics: Pizza crust, rolls, cakes, cookies, etc. I can't find it new so I have been ordering used copies to give as gifts to allergic family members and friends.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes PLUS Helpful Hints
I have several books for gluten and casein free diets. When I find a recipe I really like, I enter it on my computer. When I printed out my recipe database ALL of my favorites were from this book. Most of the recipes are every bit as good as their gluten-rich counterparts. I have this book for my son who is off of gluten, casein (dairy), soy, corn and eggs. With this book, the recipes aren't the only benefit. There are many very helpful sections about substitutions (as well as other helpful tips). I used prune baby food (as suggested by the book, 3Tbsp. = 1 egg) in place of eggs in the brownie recipe - Delicious! I used it as birthday cake for my son. He loved it. I also have to mention the bread. It is the best gluten free bread I've ever tasted (pizza crust is good too). One tip, smaller pans work much better when not using eggs (i.e. muffin cups instead of cake pan).

4-0 out of 5 stars We love it!
We recently took our four year old son off of gluten and dairy.I initially got Roben Ryberg's book, "The Gluten Free Kitchen."It was disappointing.Couldn't get the ingredients to blend properly and the bread never came out.A friend of mine knew someone who was using, "Special Diet Solutions."After reading the reviews on Amazon I ordered it.It has become my baking bible!With four children, it was important to me to make yummy tasting treats that would help the entire family support our son on his new diet.We don't feel deprived one bit!The Sandwich Bread is a favorite.It tastes very good and is very easy to make.The Brownies and Chocolate Chip cookies are delicious.The kids love the waffles.I recently made the Corn Bread to go with chili and I honestly couldn't tell the difference between the gluten free recipe and the old one I used containing wheat flour. It is slightly on the sweet side, but I adjusted the sugar the next time I made it and it was perfect. Living overseas in the UK, I have had some difficulty obtaining some ingredients. I've been able to substitute soy margarine for the Spectrum Brand margarine/shortening with success.Family members from the States are happy to mail dry milk powder and gluten free chocolate.The author provides alternatives to sweetners, eggs, dairy, and yeast which could be valuable for some, but if you're allergic to corn, corn starch is contained in some, but not all recipes.I've tried about three gluten free cookbooks and overall, this one is the one I use the most. ...

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointing cookbook - no pics of meals
The connection between MS and Diet is HUGE and should not be ignored. Unfortunately, this cookbook doesn't stick to the recommended diets for MS and has black and white drawn pictures of meals.
I am a colour-photo kind of cook and so, from the outset, I was disappointed and felt slightly 'lost'.
This book contains a few good recipes, but it's not the first book I'd recommend to the newly diagnosed, or the long term diagnosed MSer when they're looking to change their diet in order to regain some health. One of the best places to go to get dietary advice which WILL make a difference is the MSRC ([...]). There you'll find recommendations on how to and why change your diet.

3-0 out of 5 stars Baked Herrings anyone?
The Introduction and Nutrional information are beneficial to those newly-diagnosed and family members who may be confused about diet and MS. Geraldine and Fenella give well rounded menus with different and exciting options.Some of these options are completely out of the ordinary for North American taste.My family would have nothing to do with the Kidney Savoury or Mackerel Kebabs. However, many of the recipes are tasty and easy to prepare. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes!
I really like this cookbook. It is so refreshing to read a slow cooker cookbook that isn't constantly calling for cream of mushroom soup! In fact, it doesn't call for it once. These recipes are not only healthy, but they are very creative. They are not your run-of-the-mill slow cooker recipes. I highly recommend this book for anyone who enjoys using their slow cooker, in fact, I have already bought this as a birthday gift for my sister.

3-0 out of 5 stars First recipe did not work for me, others have been okay
The Tamale Pie recipe has a dumpling that did not work for me, but it may work for others.The Curried Lentils were good; the recipe makes a LOT.Soy almonds tasted odd to me, but my husband likes them.Orange Chicken was inventive.This carefully researched cookbook has a lot going for it, including the input of a dietician, but it's just not my favorite.

5-0 out of 5 stars for home cooks who love healthy, easy recipes that taste good
The recipes in this cookbook are written very well. Nothing is confusing or misleading -- a more difficult thing to find in a cookbook than you'd think. I have heard of 99% of the ingredients called for and can find almost all of them in a normal grocery store.
Although there are other slow cooker books out there, I took an hour to sit down and compare them all at the bookstore and found that this one matched my style of cooking most closely. I like to buy fresh produce, not canned and frozen vegetables and canned soups. Although I am a pretty good cook, I need someone to give me ideas of which things go together. I think the recipes in The Everything Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook are inspiring and make me want to try new things. I like that some recipes are comfort food and others are more ambitious and challenging to the bored palate.
Slow cookers are very helpful when you're feeding a crowd, and I found quite a few recipes in this cookbook that will be excellent when having family and friends over for Christmas, birthdays, and the Super Bowl. There are a lot of vegetarian and vegan options, too, which I think is fairly unusual for a cookbook that isn't explicitly billed as veg. But carnivores will also be pleased with the variety of recipes -- there are so many options here.
The bottom line is that this cookbook is for anyone with a slow cooker who wants to eat nutritious food. Beginners and more advanced cooks, herbivores and omnivores, kids and adults will all find something to love in this book. Well done.

5-0 out of 5 stars Awesome slowcooker book!
I love this book!It is so much better than the other slow-cooker books I have tried.The recipes are tasty, not too heavy and they actually work.I love how the recipes use spices instead of extra fat for flavor.Not once is canned soup called for anywhere in the book, so I can actually make these without gaining like 500 lbs.Plus, there is a whole vegetarian chapter for when my friends and family members who only eat rabbit food come over.Some of my favorites so far are the Ropa Vieja and the Chicken Adobo.I highly recommend this book to anyone who has a slow cooker. Seriously, you cannot go wrong.

5-0 out of 5 stars Refreshing take on slow cookery!
The Everything Healthy Slow Cooker Cookbook is a welcome addition to my cookbook library. Other crock-pot cookbooks I've checked out from the library rely on processed foods and many unhealthy ingredients that I wouldn't want to serve my family, but this cookbook emphasizes fresh produce, dairy, and meat products that I can buy in the grocery store. Amazingly, this cookbook has two vegetarian chapters - one vegetarian and one for vegan recipes (no dairy products, eggs, or meat). There are other vegan and vegetarian recipes throughout the book, too - not just in those two chapters. I really appreciate that because we entertain vegan friends and it's great to have something delicious to serve them rather than the same-old pasta they get everywhere.

I've tried five recipes from this book so far and every one of them has been really tasty and so easy. (Great to use the slow cooker in summer when you don't want to overheat your house.) The Hot and Sour soup tasted even better than the soup at our local Chinese take-out place. The Strawberry Pandowdy is a really different dessert idea for my family and tasted so good with vanilla ice cream. The Turkey White Chili is so good that I made it twice already. I brought Baba Ganoush and Creamy Low-Fat Spinach Artichoke Dip to a potluck and both were huge hits, gone in minutes. I am going to give this cookbook and a slow cooker to my friends who are getting married this fall. I am looking forward to using this cookbook again and again. Highly recommended to everyone who has a slow cooker. ... Read more

1-0 out of 5 stars deceiving
This book is deceiving as it has many trigger foods in a lot of the recipes. The author is suppose to be an expert on migraines, if I am not mistaken, so I was surprised. There are a lot of recipes that include mushrooms, which have a naturally occurring form of msg, but these recipes are marked to not have msg. Glad I bought it used and did not spend much money on it, as I don't think I will be using it much, if at all. The recipes that are free of my triggers are rather complex. People with migraines, especially people with chronic migraines like me, need more simple recipes, at least in my opinion. My advice is to save your money! Figure out your triggers, then just surf the net for different recipes. The Food Network has a lot of goo ones!

5-0 out of 5 stars true gourmet food for migraneurs
Easy to follow and elegant recipes that taste good.They do use a bit of garlic, which is a huge trigger for me, but all triggers are listed to the side of the recipe.

3-0 out of 5 stars Okay if you really like to cook
There are several recipes but you really have to motivated to cook, grocery shop etc.I want things more simple.I would save my money.

1-0 out of 5 stars Almost every single recipe contains at least one trigger!
I am following the 1-2-3 Migraine Prevention diet (book "Heal your Headache, Buchholz).My entire lifestyle has changed since I have been on this diet (but have cut my migraines almost 80%!)and it has been extremely challenging to cut out all the migraine dietary triggers, so when I found this Migraine Cookbook, I thought it was going to make things a lot easier.However, I don't think I can eat a single recipe in this book!The author even points many (not all) dietary triggers and still continues to use these ingredients in most/nearly all of her recipes.I am quite disappointed and do NOT recommend this book to others trying on this diet.

3-0 out of 5 stars Disappointed with content
Although the recipes in the book look delicious, so many of them have ingredients that are migraine triggers.If you are trying to restrict all suspected triggers as I am, then you don't want to make things with ANY possible triggers in them.There were some good recipes, but there were a lot that I wouldn't use because they had some items considered triggers. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Gluten Free for a Healthy Life
This book has good basic advice and food lists but not much in depth about the disease itself.It describes the basic disease process but does not give detailed information about what complications can occur if left untreated or diagnosed late.

5-0 out of 5 stars Buy THIS book!
As a newly diagnosed Celiac, I can tell you there are many many books out there on the subject.

Buy this one.... find the others at the library and copy the few pages you might need.This book is a "wealth" of info that you can actually use.

4-0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource
I thought I had learned all there was to know about celiac disease through the numerous websites devoted to the topic.This book proved me wrong.The information on cross-contamination in particular was very helpful for me and the author gives other reasons why the recovery process may not be going smoothly.I think this would be an excellent resource for the newly-diagnosed celiac patient.

My only complaint is that the section on which ingredients are safe and which should be avoided were slightly different from other such lists I have seen and left me wondering (as they often do) which list to trust.

5-0 out of 5 stars 'Can't do without the lists (of additives) in This Book!
(Gluten-Free For A Healthy Life, by Kimberly A. Tessmer, RD, LD)
The very best reason to have a copy of this book is that it provides you with pages and pages of the names of the
foods and "additives" that a gluten-intolerant person may and may not eat! I've kept mine on the kitchen counter for
constant reference during the last several months. Who would put so much wheat gluten in every processed food?
Well, they all do! (manufacturers) And, until you figure out that you're just not eating much of anything from a jar,
can, bag, or box in the future, this book is helpful in spelling it out.
It takes so much time and energy to call each of the manufacturers of your own favorite food products, concerning
their gluten-free status, that at some point, even the joy of being a nuisance (to them) wears thin. And, even after
calling, you need to question whether the food and drug companies really understand the depth of the problem,
concerning contamination from wheat gluten. (They may not.)
I just reread the first few chapters of this book, so I could decide if my relatives should read it, too. I realized that
it has a very concise, informative overview of the disease. It's a perfect introduction to the underlying causes of suffering and illness from Celiac disease, as well as explaining the need to adhere to a totally gluten-free diet. Therefore, this book may be the easiest way to help family members and friends understand it, too.
This is definitely a reference-quality book, that should be included in your quest for Celiac information.

5-0 out of 5 stars Written by those who have experienced it.
This book contains tips and recipes from the people who are living through this disease. It is a great resource for a newly diagnosed celiac. It is small enough to carry with you, but packed full of great information. Definately purchase this one! ... Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Healthy?
I was hoping to find some new and healthy recipes for my pressure cooker in this cookbook, but was disappointed.I don't eat pork as itisn't a healthy meat, in my opinion, yet there were pork recipes included.Also, there were many recipes with creamed soups, worcestershire sauce, beef broth and beef bouillion which are filled with MSG.Monosodium glutamate causes many people to become ill.I also don't believe artificial sweeteners, such as Splenda, are good for your health, either.The book did have several healthy recipes, but not enough to call it a totally "healthy" cookbook. The author made a good attempt at cutting down the fat, etc. in the recipes by using low fat products and light margarine, but it still left a lot to be desired in the way of really healthy meals.

5-0 out of 5 stars GREAT book!
I read the reviews before purchasing this book and read one about a WW person who liked it.I'm so glad I purchased this book.It is one of my favorite cookbooks. If you are on WW, you will easily be able to figure your point value for all food items.The recipes are easy and really use what most people have already in their cupboards.I find I favor using my pressure cooker and use this recipe book 3 or more times a week. I really did not use my pressure cooker before I had this cookbook because I wasn't really sure how to change the "regular" recipes into WW recipes easily. This makes the muss and fuss out of it. I love this book!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars poor excuse for healthy cookbook
I was pretty disappointed with the recipes in this book. I haven't found a single recipe that appeals to me. The book is full of recipes recommending "brand specific" ingredients such as cans of tomato soup, cans of beans or a packages of frozen mixed vegetables.

I'd like to use my pressure cooker to prepare fresh food.

I'll keep the book because every once in a while its nice to make a quickie meal from the emergency shelf., but I don't think it will ever land a spot with my favorites.

Can you imagine making corned beef & cabbage with frozen sliced carrots and packages of shredded corned beef and cream of mushroom soup?

I purchased this cook book after a recommendation from my Weight Watcher leader....when I went to Amazon and found it listed and at such a low price, I was so excited! I received it very fast and recommend it to anyone who has a pressure cooker....great and easy recipes!!!

5-0 out of 5 stars A Hit for Busy Cooks!
I bought an electric pressure cooker in anticipation of this book's arrival. As someone who is a working mom, a student, a caring and busy wife, on top of wanting to lose weight.......this book is what you want. The recipes are simple, they are fast. If you have the kind of time it takes to spend all day chopping and prepping, then this book might not be what you are looking for. I know if I cook a recipe out of this book, most of the time my kid will eat it and like it. My husband always appreciates a hot, fresh meal on the table and this helps me keep both of them happy. I also love that I'm able to eat the same meal with them and not throw off my weight loss plan in the least. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Generally good advice
I am a Board Certified Internist who specializes in Weight Management.This book has good general advice about reducing cancer risk using a vegan diet.Although some people may not be "ready" to adopt a vegan diet, anything close to it would be helpful, especially if one is eating the typical cancer "enhancing" diet of many Americans!My advice to my patients is to reduce calorie-dense processed foods and substitute whole, real foods in or close to their natural state.This works for weight loss and for improving most other chronic medical conditions, including cancer!

4-0 out of 5 stars helpful, needs some updating
This book includes lots of useful information on the benefits of vegetables and other foods in preventing cancer. They are pro vegetarianism, veganism really, to an extent that I think is excessive, even though I agree with most of what they say. However, they need to take a deeper look at the role of carbohydrates and fat in health, given recent research, in my opinion. They are very down on meat, with good reason, but lump all kinds of meat together, including fish and I believe a more sophisticated treatment of this topic is warranted. Still, I have a great deal of faith in most of their recommendations and just bought twice as many vegetable and fruit products as I normally do.

5-0 out of 5 stars Changing habits
Authored by a food writer and teacher, Helen Cassidy Page, a cardiovascular specialist, John Speer Schroeder, M.D., and a registered dietician, Tara Coghlin Dickson, M.S., R.D., this book offers a simple health plan - keepsaturated fat to 25 grams per day and all fat to 75 or less.

The first half of the book describes the plan, the reasoning behind it and offers quizzes and tables so the reader can see how their present habits compare with the ideal in terms of eating and exercise, and compare different prepared and raw foods for nutrient value.

The system depends on what the authors call "Fat Tracking," becoming aware of fats and saturated fats in all the foods we eat. Numerous lists offer alternatives to high-fat foods (i.e., whole grain bread instead of croissant, Canadian bacon instead of regular, angelfood cake instead of donut. They explain the vital differences between oils and how to read labels in supermarkets,choose cuts of meat, find high-fiber foods.

The second half consists of recipes from breakfast through dessert, each introduced with tips for preparation, variations and storage and including, of course, nutrition information. Recipes include unusual things like Eggplant Caviar, Melon and Cucumber Soup, Corn and Polenta Souffle With Cilantro Cream and fat-reduced favorites like Lasagne, various pizzas, Pork Roast With Prunes and variations on traditional themes like Grilled Halibut with Tomato Salsa, London Broil Teriyaki and Walnut Brownies, made with apple sauce and cocoa.

The authors advise gradual transitions rather than a radical makeover and the recipes are attractive, easy and inspirational. An excellent and informative program for good, healthy eating.

5-0 out of 5 stars Head and shoulders over most guides to healthy eating
The recipes in this book are well above average and are not generally difficult to prepare. California style - fruit juices, mostly citrus, are frequently used in marinades, salad dressings, and dips - adds a good dealto many of the recipes. My husband and I enjoyed this so much we havefrequently given it as a gift. ... Read more

As I care for my 74 year old diabetic (former restaurant owner)mother full time -- I am always looking for meals that we both will love. This cookbook really helps. Made the Turkey Burgers last Sunday for us and guests and they were a huge hit! It's the fabulous extras like the red onion sauce in this recipe that make this book so terrific.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great flavors, easy to cook
Diabetes doesn't mean having to say, "Never." Here is food you might have thought you could never enjoy again, but finally, someone has created a cookbook with recipes everyone can enjoy, including people who have diabetes. We all need to learn to cook and eat more healthy food and this is a great place to start. The recipes I tried were easyand turned out perfectly--I especialy loved the pork loin and the braised chicken with leeks. The desserts look tempting and surprising--can't wait to try the poached pears.The Cookin' Kid
