“I am enthusiastic in my recommendation of the What the Bible Says about Healthy Living Cookbook. It is, in many ways, the long-awaited companion to my book, What the Bible Says about Healthy Living.” --Rex Russell, M.D. “These simple to prepare recipes should inspire anyone who wants to honor their body—God’s Temple—and feed their family from a biblical perspective.” --Jordan Rubin--New York Times best-selling author of The Maker’s Diet.
It is rare to find a cookbook that has multiple recipes that I regularly refer to. In fact, in recent years, my cookbooks have been collecting dust in lieu of websites that include recipe reviews so as to be relatively certain I am not wasting my time, energy and money on a recipe that no one will like. However, after changing our diet to whole foods and mostly from scratch, I found that the internet sites were not quite as helpful any longer.
I have now been cooking from this cookbook for several months and have yet to make something from it that was not a success. Considering that I have a somewhat picky husband and three young kids that may or may not be happy with the food in front of them, finding an entire book of recipes that pleases everyone is quite a feat!! Some of our favorites include: Oat Breakfast Squares, Maple Almond Salmon, Pecan Crusted Tilapia and Millet Pilaf. I would say I have made about 1/3 of the recipes and plan to make many more. I am buying
NancyOO, FL I read Dr. Russell's book "What the Bible Says About Healthy Living" over 6 years ago and have thought for a long time it would be great to have a cookbook that goes with it. And now here it is. I love it. I have baked several things our of it and they are all wonderful. The Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are the best. And to know that they don't have any "bad" things in them makes them guilt free. There are some great "comfort" type foods and then some that have a little more zing to them. I would highly recommond both the Cookbook and Dr. Russell's orginal book. NancyOO, FL this cookbook as gifts for my mom and three sisters this year!!
Elizabeth Koretke (Palatine, IL) This cookbook is a great find. Finally a cookbook that offers healthy recipes that are easy and fast to prepare. Everything I have tried so far is delicious; salad dressings, grain dishes, chili, salmon with horseradish, sweet and spicy nuts, and no bake cheesecake. My husband takes a different grain salad to work for healthy lunches now. I find these are recipes I go back to over and over again. I enjoy the suggestions in "love thy leftovers." They are helpful and creative. What a great idea to bring God and what the Bible says about food and eating into our lives. The author's true life stories were interesting. Makes me want to read more on the subject.
N V-meyer Simple, well-written, practical, and delicious! I love this cookbook for two reasons: 1. INSTRUCTIONAL SEQUENCE - In each recipe, the ingredient list is separated neatly so that the eye naturally groups parts that must be added at the same time. Additionally, this is the only cookbook I've read that sequences the instructions so accurately and efficiently that I don't have to read the entire recipe before I begin. For instance: "While the lentils cook, bring water to a boil. While water boils, dice celery and carrots." The timing is actually trust-worthy, and the sequence makes for an efficient kitchen experience. 2. DELICIOUSNESS - There are a plethora of tried-and-true recipes. I've dog-eared so many pages that the whole top corner of the book will soon be missing. A thought for future editions: I wish there was a bit more discussion on seasonality, organic foods, sustainability, and fair trade practices somewhere in these pages. To me, if we're going to talk about God's design for eating, the way we care for the land and animals (and even more so the way laborers are treated) is critical. Additionally, I do find myself substituting fresh or dried items for canned items. But, this is a simple thing to do and does not in any way detract from the recipes. Razorbackjen The book 'What the Bible Says About Healthy Living' and this cookbook are the best books ever! I have had so much fun making these recipes and I'm not much of a cook (these are easy to follow). I am so eager to make all the recipes and I hope they'll write another cookbook like this so I can always have more recipes to follow. Love it!
