I got this yesterday after randomly coming across it on Amazon. I am a fan of P90X and Tony Horton wrote the forward from the book and the author is his chef. I was wondering if anyone else has it and has tried any of the recipes yet? It is a beautiful book with tons of color photos and I am eyeballing the Karma Burgers with Chipotle Mayo and the ChaCha Enchiladarole.

I would be interested in any recipe reviews. I checked this out of the library and was not terribly excited by the recipes so I took it right back. Could have been that I checked out a few other cookbooks at the same time and this just didn't appeal to me then. I would like to give it another try. I do agree the layout and all the photos are beautiful.

Wow, this book looks great! Thank for the heads up, Joliepolie. LIke you, I'd love to hear from those who have tried some of the recipes. Still, after checking out the "Look Inside" feature Amazon provides, I may just cut to the chase and buy this beauty!

I am going to make those burgers in the next few days and I will post about them! I am loving the recipes because they look easy but delicious.

I've got this out from the library at the moment and I don't think I'm a fan. I don't usually read cookbook introductions, but I did this time, and it made me want to run away back into the arms of other, saner books. She says that tofu and soy milk are "too processed" but recommends Vegenaise, and claims that soaking nuts will "cut the fat by half". (??)

The recipes themselves look okay, although you can tell who her demographic is - the type that can afford to hire a personal chef/dietician (maple syrup and coconut everywhere!) and lack cooking skills to the extent that they need one.

I might still try a few things and report back, though. Anyone else?
