    This review is from: The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes Ready in 30 Minutes or Less (Hardcover)
    I have every one of the South Beach Books. Phase 1 third day of the 2nd week is the hardest to get through. Your body has rid itself of those high glycemic foods, so you crave and want to eat some bread or other processed white flour food item.
    I have done every and I mean every diet out there (Atkins, Weight Watchers,Soup diet,Slim for Life, Slim Fast, American Heart Assoc. I also took Redux to lose weight which has caused me some heart trouble. Everytime any of the above was done I would loose then fall off the diet and gain what I lost plus an additional 20+ lbs. This was the only one which made since for me and has allowed me to have that cookie, french fry, or brownie once in a while and still keep on the diet.

    I enjoy this cookbook more as it is simple. The first cookbook was too in depth. More for chefs to cook with vs a working person. I hate having to be in the kitchen cooking for hours even when I was not dieting. Very simple recipes that allow short prep times. The fewer the ingredients the better for me. Best part helps with the making of a grocery list and tells you which foods to always keep on hand, so when you need to fix a fast meal you have everything.

    The South Beach Diet book is a must and you need to read through it. I skipped over the stories after a couple and went to the heart of what Dr. Agatston states about his diet (Not really a diet for me, just a guide to great healthy eating). Do highlight,write in the margins and use post it notes as you read the first book. This diet(guide to healthy eating) is about making your body work to process the foods which you eat instead of eating processed/high glycemic foods which your body doesn’t have to work much to process. He even gives you a list of acceptable foods to eat in Phase 1. I leave this on my refrigerator even now, to remind myself that even though I am not in Phase 1 I still eat those foods which are best during Phase 1.
    What I took from his books: Eat to live with the right vegetables, dairy products,proteins and fruits.

    This review is from: The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes Ready in 30 Minutes or Less (Hardcover)
    I’m a busy working mom and being able to prepare a nutrient-rich meal — that my family will actually eat — in under 30 minutes is fantastic. The turkey and white bean chili (page 196)is their favorite so far. My husband, my teenager and I, all watch our weight and this cookbook is fast becoming our favorite tool in helping us add whole grains, lean sources of protein, and more vegetables to our meal plans. The Pork Fajitas (page 210) and the Rosemary Pork Medallions with Chunky Applesauce (page 211) or the South Beach Macaroni and Cheese (page 249) are perfect comfort food for this cooler weather. I love Dr. Agatston’s sensible approach to nutrition and his philosphy that if we’re satiated and satisfied by nutrient dense, fiber rich foods, we’ll lose weight and have healthier hearts and blood chemistry.

    This review is from: The South Beach Diet Quick and Easy Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes Ready in 30 Minutes or Less (Hardcover)
    Definitely get this cookbook if you’re following/thinking about following the South Beach Diet, or even if you just want to eat healthier.

    All recipes (except a few) take 30 minutes or less to both prepare and cook (shortcuts are also listed in lots of recipes, as in “you can use a frozen bag of broccoli here to save time”), and there are literally dozens of them that sound delicious to my boyfriend even, a hamburger and fries kind of guy. Nothing is too gourmet to be a good weeknight meal.

    Remember the “Stocking the South Beach Diet Kitchen” guide in the regular cookbook? It’s much expanded here, with a short paragraph for each item, telling you what to look for at the store, what the item is good for, etc. Very helpful!

    There’s also pages of meal and snack ideas that don’t require a recipe. These are really simple ideas or tips for throwing together something quick. For instance, “take a whole wheat tortilla, slather spaghetti sauce and cheese on it, and broil it until done.” No, that’s not exactly what was written, but it gives you an idea.

    This will be my main cookbook on the South Beach Diet, and it’s much MUCH more accessible for people like me who want a good, healthy meal, but don’t want to spend an hour or two putting it together.

    Ok, I admit it I am on a diet. And yes, it is even The South Beach Diet. I have lost 75 Lbs in the first year and I`ve been on it over 2 years! But even if I was not on South Beach I’d recommend this new cookbook because I am a busy gal. I always have been. Presently, I have 2 jobs working over 12 hrs a day. So, while I love to cook, I don’t want to spend the balance of my free time in the kitchen. Quick, Easy and Yummy have great appeal to me.

    While I have over 300 cookbooks in my collection, the ones that help me maintain my health are the ones I now treasure. This new addition will rank with the best because it also respects the limited time I have to cook a healthy menu.

    The new South Beach Super Quick Cookbook is a wealth of information and tips. There is Grab and Go, Budget Shopping Tips; Reworking of Old favorites and Cook Once, Eat Twice. Each topic enhances the concept of saving time. In addition, all the recipes can be made within 30 minutes.

    When I saw the recipe for Black Bean Brownies (page 245) I reflected on how I had learned about this technique from another member years ago. I thought at the time: “How gross”. But later I learned that once you puree any bean, it is very similar to an egg flour mixture. In this cookbook I was also was thrilled to find an acceptable Hash Brown substitution with Jicama Hash Browns (page 223 ) I have used Jicama in salads but never thought of using it this way. Brilliant !

    Dieting for me is not about “doing without”. It is about “doing with” flavors and healthful choices. A big bonus from this cookbook is the time it gives me to enjoy the benefits. The Super Quick Cookbook allows me to do it all!

    Whether on a diet or not, those who care about eating healthier will enjoy this new addition to the South Beach Cookbook library. It is family friendly, single friendly and right on target for all of our busy schedules.

    So, I don’t know what you are doing tonight, but I am making Black Bean Brownies and taking them to work. I can hardly wait to tell them they just ate beans, they’ll never believe it !

    AMAZING content – kindle version not so great, August 24, 2010
    By 
    Melissa (Austin, TX) –

    This cookbook is full of delicious, healthy, quick recipes! I get home two hours before I have to go to bed and being able to put dinner together in less than 30 minutes is HUGE! Some of my favorites are the recipes that call for you to throw some sliced up deli roast beef in with a couple additional ingredients for a yummy beef dish! The content of this cookbook gets a full 5 stars!

    HOWEVER, I do NOT recommend the kindle version AT ALL. I was hesitant to buy a cookbook on kindle, but I thought I’d give it a try – I live in a small apartment and didn’t want to clutter it up with more cookbooks and I like to support emerging technologies. The cookbook contains many cross-references, for example, the meal plan gives page numbers (paper page numbers, not kindle locations) for the recipes it includes, but doesn’t have a link to the recipes. So, if you’re going through the meal plan, you have to search by recipe name, go look at that recipe, and then go to your bookmarks to get back to the meal plan. It’s a lot of work – I’ve done more typing on my kindle since I got this cookbook than I have in the entire time I’ve owned a kindle (which is since they first came out). On the other hand, I can decide what I’m having for dinner on the bus ride home, but all in all, I think the paper version is far superior.

    Quick and creative dishes for the health-conscious, May 19, 2010

    This review is from: The South Beach Diet Super Quick Cookbook: 200 Easy Solutions for Everyday Meals (Hardcover)
    Perfect for dieters who have limited time in the kitchen, this cookbook will appeal to those who want healthy, yummy food — fast. Each of the 200 recipes can be prepared in 30 minutes or less. Each dish adheres to the South Beach Diet, which focuses on “nutrient-dense, fiber-rich vegetables, fruits and whole grains, good unsaturated and omega-3-rich fats, lean protein and low-fat dairy.”

    Before the recipes begin, the opening chapter reviews what the South Beach Diet phases are, gives budget-conscious shopping tips, lists staples and equipment to have on hand and describes some grab-and-go dishes contained in the cookbook.

    Each recipe includes: How many servings it makes, hands-on time and total time; nutrition information lists calories and amounts of fat, saturated fat, protein, carbohydrate, fiber and sodium in each serving. Many recipes have variations so cooks can change the ingredients to make the dish compatible with Phase 2 or 3 eating.

    Easy-to-spot cooking tips are sprinkled throughout, as well as instructions on how to “Cook Once, Eat Twice” so cooks can take leftovers from a dish and transform it into another dish.

    After recipe chapters come two full weeks worth of meal plans for South Beach dieters on both Phase 1 and Phase 2 of the diet. Included are instructions on how to eat to satisfy each phase.

    I’ve only tried a few of the recipes, but they have been delicious: Strawberry Fool, which uses plain Greek yogurt; Lemon Quinoa Salad, with my favorite healthy grain; and Black Bean Brownies, which uses just what you think.

    Unfortunately, only every third (or so) recipe has a photo. Cookbooks are so much more helpful with images of finished dishes. The photos that are included are in color and beautiful. For an extremely helpful cookbook with photos of each dish, see Cook This, Not That!: Kitchen Survival Guide.

    All in all, this is a worthy addition to any cookbook collection.

    Other good health-conscious cookbooks include:
    Deceptively Delicious: Simple Secrets to Get Your Kids Eating Good Foods,
    Hungry Girl: Recipes and Survival Strategies for Guilt-Free Eating in the Real World,
    The Food You Crave: Luscious Recipes for a Healthy Life and
    The Most Decadent Diet Ever!: The cookbook that reveals the secrets to cooking your favorites in a healthier way.
