When I think about the Holidays and their challenges to healthy eating, I am reminded of the opening lines of the novel "A Tale of Two Cities" by Charles Dickens. Of course, this classic novel was not about the healthy eating around the holidays, but because his words depict a world of contrasts and extremes, they aptly describe the challenges we face each holiday season. Just for fun and because they are among the most eloquent words ever written in the English language, I have included them below: It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way... My apologies to Mr. Dickens for borrowing his beautiful words to describe the extremes we face each holiday season; but, his words apply so well to the holidays since they truly are the very "best of times." However, when it comes to what we eat, they can also be the very "worst of times." For Muriel and me, the challenges start around Halloween and continue through the seemingly endless "food-centered" Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings, events and parties. It isn't until sometime after the New Year that we can all take stock of the holiday fallout and, once again, somehow manage to find the inspiration necessary to undertake our New Year's Resolutions. Muriel and I hope that this book's recipes provide an easy, delicious and healthier way to enjoy the Holidays. We recognize that the holidays are meant to be enjoyed, so this book's recipes are not about bland deprivation, but are all about making holiday eating healthier and with fewer calories without sacrificing deliciousness. Our ultimate goal is that we all reach January even healthier than we were before the holidays. This book contains the tools that Muriel and I use to achieve that every year. Since we started this Foreword with Charles Dickens' opening lines to "A Tale of Two Cities, ' it is only fair that we finish with his inspiring closing words: It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest that I go to than I have ever known. My sincere apologies if we got a bit too literary here, but I am often amazed at the power and wisdom of words written so long ago. Happy Healthy Holidays - and Every Day! Bon appétit! Andrew and Muriel

I’m really enjoying this cookbook - very much how our family eats: low carb and lots of veggies. I originally bought this to get me to free shipping ha ha but am finding lots of wonderful recipes we’ve tried and ones to try soon. Thank you for this fantastic book!

Beautiful cookbook! I love the pictures, they inspire me to cook gorgeous, healthy food! The recipes are easy and delicious. I also love the lay-flat binding, a small but important detail. I have all of the cookbooks that have been provided so far, and hope there are more to come, they are my "go to" when I'm looking for a great recipe. Thank you both! P.S. I think Muriel should have her own cooking show!!!!

Fantastic recipes - LOVE SPIRAL BOUND!
All the cookbooks are great. They have all helped me branch out and discover things I never thought I would like. Asparagus soup? DELICIOUS! (Can't believe it)... I started with the sweet potato soup and made that over and over (fantastic) but then I realized I had to try the others. I loved every single recipe I tried. We make at least one soup a week. I love the Split Green Pea Soup; red, yellow, and orange pepper soup; zucchini and herb soup; cream of mushroom soup; onion soup; tomato soup; butternut squash soup; lentil soup; and his recipe for chicken stock. And the Turkey Chili is delicious. There are still many recipes that I haven't tried (spinach and chickpea, barley soup, there are a couple of other lentil soups, green curry thai soup with shrimp, etc.). One recipe that sounds weird to me is the Mango, Red Curry, Chicken soup. But I bet once I try it, I'll love it! That's how I felt about the asparagus soup... totally shocked at how delicious that was! I have all the cookbooks and they are all easy to follow. THANK YOU FOR THE SPIRAL BOUND AND QUALITY PAPER.

I received this cookbook a couple of days ago and already made several dishes. I really do like your suggestions for different herbs and spices. Makes it so healthy and tasty. I would highly recommend this cookbook as well as the 'Healthy Veggies'. If we don't have our health, we don't have anything. Muriel, keep up the great work. I ordered the holiday cookbook tonight and looking forward to healthier holidays. I will be purchasing your other cookbooks soon. Thank You, Diane
