"I have tried macrobiotics several times and have even taken cooking classes, but for me, the biggest challenge is lunch time at the office and meals away from home. Your book addresses both of these issues...thanks for a great book!"
-John Lorance, Student

"Right from the cover, and I really try not to judge a book by itís cover, the beautiful illustration of fruits and vegetables compelled me to open Lenoreís Natural Cuisine, Your Essential Guide to Wholesome, Vegetarian Cooking. This cookbook offers a wonderful assortment of breakfast meals, salads, grains, pasta, beans, tofu, tempeh and vegetable dishes. The chapters 'Making the Most of This Book,' and 'What Itís All About,' give helpful definitions of unfamiliar ingredients and alternative sources for nutrients, such eating leafy greens instead of dairy products for calcium. Most impressively, she talks about organic food and the dangers of pesticides. Yes, Lenore is an aware consumer and writer! My overall impression is that Lenore wants people to see how easy and fun cooking can be, with a little help."
-Lyn Scharret, Reviewer for PhenomeNews

"I think this is an excellent cookbook. It is so detailed. My ninety-year-old mother is even intrigued by it."
-Susan Landis, Borders Book Buyer

"I couldn't put it down. My husband and I are fighting over it."
-Karen Tomczak, Natural Foods Store Manager

"In Lenore's Natural Cuisine, Lenore Baum approaches vegetarian cooking with the delicacy of a gourmet chef. Beginners will appreciate the simplicity and thoroughness of the cooking instructions. Experienced cooks will discover that the recipes highlight and balance the natural flavors of foods instead of masking them with excessive spices. I have recommended this wonderful cookbook to my friends and family."
-Kathleen Stack, Student
