She is a natural-born educator who makes the know-how of good living by eating well a joy. This book is a primer on the 'new nutrition' and weight control and there are over 350 specially designed recipes that are impressive." - Craig Claiborne
"Jane Brody has done it again - a clearly written and scientifically valid work of art." - Gabe Mirkin, M.D. author of "The Sportsmedicine Book"
"Thank God for Jane Brody and her 'curative cuisine' of the nineteen eighties. Here, at last, is a guide book for all Americans who want to satisfy their undernourished psyches and re-tool their flaccid physiques at one and the same time." - Bert Greene author of "Bert Greene's Kitchen Bouquets"
Hi carb or not, I'm never getting rid of my Jane Brody book! Great recipes. I have another of her books...Good Food Gourmet...it's another treasure. She's well loved in the foody world (judging by lots of chatter in internet food groups). If you are looking for sure-fire recipes, try J. Brody's.
