John Mackey, CEO and co-founder of Whole Foods Market, has teamed up with nutritional experts and leading chefs to create a cookbook full of health-promoting recipes inspired by the high-quality and nutrient-rich ingredients Whole Foods has long been known for.

The Whole Foods Cookbook philosophy starts with the basic tenet that the most important dietary change you can make is to eat more fruits and vegetables. To help you navigate the nebulous world of healthy eating, the authors have written a clear and friendly introductory summary of the Whole Foods Diet's principles, the essential 8 foods to eat, tips on setting up a stress-free kitchen, and more. You'll also find specific guides on cooking beans and grains, building flavors, and impressive techniques like sautéing without oil and roasting to add layers of flavor. But most tantalizing are their 120 recipes covering breakfast, smoothies, entrees, pastas, pizzas, healthy desserts, and more.

Cooking food yourself is the secret to changing your diet and sustaining a new lifestyle, and the ultimate goal of THE WHOLE FOODS COOKBOOK is to change your habits around eating and preparing food. In the midst of our busy lives, the last thing most of us need is an overly complicated diet. Get the basics right, learn to cook a few meals you love, and eat plenty of them. Once you become accustomed to the whole foods, plant-based lifestyle, you'll quickly gain the confidence to create your own delicious variations.

This cookbook has beautiful tempting photos. They make me want to try every recipe NOW. Recipes are mostly simple. Lots of information for those new to whole foods eating, or great reminders to ones like me who have been eating this way for many years. Simple to understand information. Well laid out book. I have only tried two recipes so far, but after looking through this book I am ready to purchase my own copy.
