Just got the book this week. I am very impressed. I love the ideas at the bottom of the recipe pages. I love the fact that many meals include ideas for modifying AT meals into PW meals and vice versa. I have made quite a few of the recipes already and they don't disappoint. I was eating some roasted garlic spinach (I used Asiago instead of Parmiggiano) with my chicken today and my co-workers could not believe that it was a ''healthy'' dish. And I would be remiss if I didn't mention how good the Peaches N Cream omelette is. Seriously. It's THAT good !!!

Definitely worth the money. Put me on the waiting list for Volume 3 !!!

Thumbs up Check Out This GN v2 TOP TEN List!!!

Another email with great feedback that I felt was worth sharing
-----------------------
I love Gourmet Nutrition. Always wanted to be a Chef. Now I am one, in my own kitchen ;-)

Here's what I love most and learned:

1. Easy to use - not a lot of different ingredients.
2. Serving sizes for women and men - never knew before how much a serving size is. It really helps portion control.
3. Things that I don't like or use, can be easily substituted.
4. No Calorie or Points counting
5. My mouth waters when I read through the book!
6. How to prepare certain fish. E.g. How to easily get rid of the skin on Salmon, Duck, Turkey, etc.
7. All the little tricks, tips and hints
8. What you need for great cooking. In the fridge, freezer, what utensils, spices, etc.
9. It's for EVERYONE (Vegans, Vegetarians, Low Carb, Low Sugar, etc.)
10. You can prepare a Gourmet Meal for ANYONE!

So please post your feedback here...all thoughts and opinions are welcome.


I just purchased the whole PN kit and I love Gourmet Nutrition the best of all the material. The pictures make me want to make the recipes and I love the AT/PW separation as it makes it so much easier to know when to eat.

My only negative feedback is the overall PN binder and then separate book... and then with myself purchasing Gourmet Nutrition too I found a lot of the information to be too separated and repeated. I don't find it that easy to navigate through and many recipes and pieces of information are duplicated.

I am starting my PN journey tomorrow and I am VERY excited!

If it's a cookbook you're going to use every day, then you need to have it able to sit open while you're cooking. My over-forty eyes struggle a bit with the print size as well, and reading glasses in a kitchen tend to fog up. But that's a minor point. I'm taking mine down to Kinko's, where for about six bucks they'll saw off the regular binding and rebind it spiral for you, making it a little more convenient to use every day in your kitchen.
Thanks for this post. I was going through every post before I posted this issue as well. I hardly use 2.0 because it is so inconvenient to use in the kitchen. (Luckily I have 1.0.) Everyone is talking about the "coffee table book" vibe; I want something that I can use effectively in the kitchen.

I am going to Kinko's as soon as I get off of work to have corrective surgery performed on 2.0.

PN Folks: Please consider spiral binding 3.0. I know there are some durability issues and pages will not align exactly with each other. However, despite 2.0 looking "pretty" on my shelf, 1.0 is the girl I bring to the dance.

I'd pay the same price and PN would have a higher profit margin since spiral binding is less expensive!

Thanks,

Thumbs up A Kitchen Essential

I got my GN V.2 book two weeks ago and have been using it almost everyday and I love it!!! I was a little worried that I might be disappointed like many other cookbooks but I was wrong about this one.

Things I love about GN V.2:

~ how it has helped me with portion control
~ No excessive leftovers, cooking from some cookbooks can sometimes have way too much even after freezing.(at least that is what I have found as i am cooking for myself)
~ recipes taste great
~ Simple and easy to follow recipes
~ having meals categorized into PW and AT meals

I have notice people mentioning that they aren't too keen about the binding of the book but it doesn't really bother me. Most or if not all my cookbooks are bound that way. I use a cookbook holder/stand and it keeps the pages open to the recipe I am using. I could see how the spiral would be good for the kitchen but I like the "coffee table" vibe it has.

If there was a GN V.3 I would buy that one with out hesitation.

I give the book two thumbs up

Question Gluten and Dairy?

Not sure if this has been asked, but....

I have celiac and a milk allergy. Would it still be worthwhile for me to buy the book?

I would say yes most of the recipes should be ok for you. I found very little dairy, gluten products used. Some recipes do have wheat or dairy in it but i found you can substitute ingredients easily with the recipes. I did one of the muffin recipes with quinoa flour instead of wheat and turned out great. I have a wheat and dairy sensitivity and found this cookbook to be very good.

Thumbs up Great Improvement

The cook book is greatly improved. Everyone raves about it. The pictures encourage you to eat healthy because they all look so delicious. It could use the pie chart of protein, fat, carbs would also really help. Maybe a chapter in the back dedicated to healthy tips like in the first cook book with the guide.
