Easy, fun, and nourishing recipes. Just what the doctor ordered.

I always love Jen's recipes but this book is above and beyond! So many great ideas. As a naturopathic physician I tend to recommend higher protein dishes for my patients (and we eat this way as well.) These recipes are still perfect for us as we can just add an extra protein side or pop some on top.

Everything we've tried was quick, easy, kid and parent friendly, and absolutely delicious. I even picked up some extra copies for the office!

Thank you, thank you....did I say thank you? Jen, for all your hard work in putting this together and doing it so beautifully!

I keep both of the Simple Green books on display and ready to use 'everyday'! All of the recipes are easy to follow and absolutely delicious! Jen even provides weekly menus and shopping lists to show how to be prepared and not miss out on the full benefits of plant based meals. I've been a fan for about two years and don't plan to stop. Enjoy!

Mostly vegan/veganizable, all delicious.

I was so excited to get this cookbook and flipping through it did not disappoint. I especially appreciated how Jen took the time to advise how to make most of the non-vegan items vegan as well. There are also ways to make many of the recipes but-free as well, for people who may need to do so. Fresh colorful food is now more accessible than before. SGS cookbooks and cleanses are always amazing and flavorful and I can't wait to try everything in this cookbook. I think we are going to try the Tex Mex Breakfast Bowl first! Our maybe the Thai Lettuce Wraps! Too many choices!

Overall some pretty good information

I am not a vegan or a vegetarian, but I do understand a great deal about nutrition and I do health and wellness consulting. this books has some good overall information in it. But not all of the recipes are plant based. Some have eggs in them, but that is not a dealbreaker for me because I enjoy eggs. I also enjoy chicken sometimes and I will add some to my meals once in a while. The key thing to remember, is all things in moderation, so while I rarely eat dairy, I do enjoy cottage cheese and other cheeses. I also enjoy yogurt..

This book would be a good resource book for people who need a guide for meals to prepare for themselves or their families. I use it as a guideline only and I customize my meals to my own tastes.

I hate Cilantro (it tastes like soap), so I never use it. I substitute parsley or other herbs. I don't eat walnuts because they make sores in my mouth and I don't like pecans. I substitute almonds or cashews for them in meals.

I do feel like the price is a bit much for an autographed copy of the book. Amazon sells it for 24.99 (not autographed), but I purchased the kindle edition because I have to be very careful with my money and I could access the inforamtion digitally for much less expensive cost.

One of the things that I don't like is how much this book recommends salt in the recipes. Overall we have way too much salt in our diet and there is really no need to add more if you use herbs and spices to flavor your foods. So I don't use the added salt. I also don't use any caffeine so I don't use teas or coffee or any drinks that have tannins or caffeine in them.

One of the great selling point of this book is the beautiful colorful pictures in it. Those enhance it quite a bit.. And one of the things that I have learned in my years of cooking is that if you are using kale for your salads, you need to work it to make it softer and more pliable to make a better salad. I enjoy kale several different ways, especially making kale chips to accompany dishes.

Overall, I do feel this is a nice book to have in anyone's library.
