On Eating Well (Available Soon!)

On Eating WellA Nutrition Primer that include deliciously healthy recipes!

It’s not difficult to make wholesome meals. It’s just a matter of getting used to a new way of doing things. Change is sometimes hard to do at first but if you stick with it, it will get easy. Eat simply. Feel the difference! Notice how your mind and body feel clearer, brighter, and stronger!

We are designed to eat primarily fruits and vegetables. Grains as high-density carbohydrates such as cereals, breads, and pasta are a relatively new food, historically speaking. So, the superiority of carbohydrates in our diets is actually plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables, and grains in moderation. You’d have to eat a lot of fruits and vegetables to equal the carbohydrates found in the carbohydrate-dense grains, starches and pastas. You get fiber and far more nutrients from fruits and vegetables. Not that you should avoid grains, just eat them in moderation. A diet of variety is of utmost importance.

The following cookbook reviews are by real people who own, use and recommend them so you can find the ones that will serve you best.

A fantastic update to a classic

Reviewer: Regina

Only one member of our family is a true vegetarian, but the original edition of Madison’s book is arguably my most prized cookbook, and the one that gets the most use in our house. This update is wonderful. Madison has added quite a bit to the original. I have yet to try most of the new recipes, but I will do my best to cook my way through them. I have given this book to many people over the years as a gift, and I will continue to do so. Bravo, Deborah Madison, and thank you!


Great Buy!

Reviewer: Bakwoods

If you are cooking for your friends or trying to impress a significant other, this book is the one for you. It simplifies the measurements, the ingredients along with substitutes, and more importantly it makes it fool proof for cooking. There’s plenty of pictures to go along with each recipe, and a great story behind each dish. For those of you new to wine, impress your friends by keeping tabs on the wine pairings with these great dishes. It makes each bite more satisfying when you’ve got a great bottle of wine to follow up with a great meal.


A must-have for every kitchen!

Reviewer: Lisa, Massachusetts

I have always had a Betty Crocker cookbook around. It was the first cookbook I took with me when I moved away from home, and it still remains the first book I grab for if I have *any* questions about a recipe I’m making. The book is great for cooks of all levels. It has a lot of great introductory information – how do you boil an egg? What are the different cuts of meat?

It provides a lot of easy recipes that taste delicious and are nutritious as well.

In addition, the book also eases you into many advanced recipes. Looking to cook a Thanksgiving dinner for the relatives? Trying to make a birthday dinner really special? This cookbook has the recipes for you, all easy to understand and with gorgeous photos.


This version is definitely an improvement on previous versions as well. There is information on grilling and vegetarian meals, something lacking in the last versions. They’ve also added in a number of ethnic dishes that are quite tasty. If this book isn’t on your kitchen shelf, be sure to buy a copy!
