Nutrilicious is a real potpourri: Timely but not time-consuming
Humorous but not funny
Inspirational but not preachy
Serious but not sad
Educational but not boring
A wake-up call but not threatening
-Rabbi Jonathan Rietti, Senior Lecturer Gateways
"Nutrilicious is chuck full of easy, simple, made-from-scratch, wholesome, health-promoting, family-oriented, vegetarian recipes. At the same time, there are detailed instructions as to how to upgrade some of them for holiday meals as well as for elegant entertaining. The ingredients used are fresh, unprocessed, whole and, wherever possible, organic. All the ingredients used, except the fruits and vegetables, have kosher certification.
The aphorisms throughout the book, some by famous persons but most coined by the author, bring home some ancient truths about the connection between food, health and longevity. Some of the text as well as the rhymed messages and the stories reflect the author?s self-styled, 20th century personality, coming to grips with 21st century consumer-driven-conspicuous-consumption oriented realities. She never loses her sense of awe and wonderment at the beauty of our G-d given natural world and, at the same time, provides comic relief from the serious and well researched health issues candidly dealt with in this book. There is something nutrilicious in Nutrilicious for everyone. It is not just a cookbook; it is a multi-faceted experience. With its scrumptious food, served with dollops of satire, Nutrilicious makes delicious fare for the reader!?
