Wow...Impressive book. SO many easy to follow recipes with basic instruction and ingredients.  I had to try the Balsamic Tuna salad in Avocado halves and the Zucchini and Chick Pea Salad.Two things that I absolutely love and never thought to put together.

With 500 recipes included, you will never run out of ideas for your breakfast, lunch or dinner that are healthy and taste great.  Each recipe has the ingredient, the break down, the serving size and the nutritional guide. Some even have tips or storage tips to make things even easier.
