Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for all levels I got this a couple years ago and I find it a great tool in the kitchen. The instructions are easy to follow and there are lots of tips (e.g. substitute apples for pears, that sort of thing) that make it even easier for you to adjust recipes for your personal tastes. There are a LOT of recipes too so you'll definitely like something in here. There's also lots of general information, which does make the book a little overwhelming, but it's all blocked nicely so you can ignore it if you want to.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best cookbook ever! When I was visiting my daughter, she had made Marla's Maple Pork and it was so delicious. I also made a few recipes from the book and I was sold. When I got back to Winnipeg, I had to buy it. I went to Chapters and asked the salesclerk where I could find it, she immediately said "I'll go get it for you!". We started talking about the recipes in this recipe book. I paid a bit more for it but so worth it. I'm buying one for my son and his girlfriend for Christmas and I hope they'll love it as much as I do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Cookbook Ever I bought this book because I really enjoyed their previous book, Eat Shrink and Be Merry. The recipes in these books are fail proof. I have made about 40+ recipes from both books combined and I have never been disappointed. I have never had an experience like this with any set of cookbooks. A must buy for any health conscious foodie.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ahhhhmazing!!!!! This is not just another cookbook! This will quickly become your kitchen bible! The recipes are healthy, fun and everything I have tried has been fabulous! The Morrocan Stew was to die for and I had a ton of compliments. The simple salmon with dill sauce - unbelievable! The best part......HEALTHY! New takes on old favorites - from butter chicken, pizza to lasagna! This is one cookbook that needs to be in your kitchen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super fantastic--I'm not just saying that This cookbook is super fantastic! I previously bought the original Looney Spoons as well as the Crazy Plates, and this one tops the cake (lol, no pun intended). This book has a lot of amazing recipes, which I've tried a lot of them already and they were all hits, and they're all health conscious...something I can definitely use. A lot of the recipes have ingredients that I either had on hand or that were easy to find. Great photos and tips too! It's a "must" for your collection!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AH CARAMBA this cookbook is genius on all fronts!! Not only do I love the calorie reduced, flavor injected and ramped up nutrition in these recipies, I love the humor as a change from the same old same old cookbooks. Its great to read the other reviewers sharing their favorites to try and I love Roast Feast, Marla's Maple Pork, Roasted beets, Britney Spears [Asparagus], Crab & Corn Chowder, Tuna Salad & Corn, Black Bean & Mango Fandango.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awsome book! I love the updated recipes and information! I used to keep their last book, Eat Shrink & Be Merry open in my recipe book holder and have used a LOT of those recipes. I'm loving the new book as well and I'm still enjoying reading the tips and new recipes. This one is too large to keep open in the holder but I'm not complaining! I love their wit, nutrition information and I highly recommend it!

From the Author

According to Janet, the nutritionist of the duo, “TLC is jam-packed (as in ‘loaded’..not as in ‘full of jam’) with Greta’s amazing recipes (wait until you try her gluten-free brownies!) and tons of cutting-edge nutrition and lifestyle tips. It’s our most comprehensive cookbook to date and includes reader-favourite recipes from Looneyspoons, Crazy Plates and ESBM…PLUS recipes we’ve written for magazines, our TV show and LOTS of brand-new, never-seen-before stuff, too. I feel like this is the cookbook we were meant to write. The first three were just practice!” “The best news for fans and owners of our cookbooks is that all of our old, outdated recipes from Looneyspoons and Crazy Plates have been revised and updated to reflect current nutritional trends and ingredients,” adds Greta. “Remember way back in the 90s when all of the experts were telling us that ‘fat is evil’ and we should basically remove all fat from our diet? Well, now we know the difference between good fats (salmon, avocados) and bad fats (hydrogenated and trans fats) and that not all fat is bad for you. Coconut oil is good! Nuts are not the enemy! Similarly, no one was focusing on reducing salt and sugar back then, because fat was getting all the attention. We think some of our older recipes are too high in sugar and salt and these recipes have been modified and ‘healthified’ for the new book. We’ve also included gluten-free recipes as well as recipes suitable for diabetics. Our new Moroccan and Rollin’ Quinoa Salad alone is worth the price of the book!”  “Finally, for all of the Weight Watchers members who bombarded us with requests for the fibre content of Looneyspoons recipes, your wish will come true in The Looneyspoons Collection! Every recipe in the book, and there are loads of them, contains a complete nutritional analysis.”
