The recipes included are appetizers and snacks; soups; salads and dressings; pasta, noodles, and dumplings; rice and grains; beans; vegetables; bread, pizza, sandwiches and wraps; and desserts and sweets. Don't let the lack of meat, poultry, fish, egg, dairy, and cheese sections fool you. Many of the recipes contain these ingredients, however they do not devote entire chapters to them. My family definitely contains meat eaters and there's no way I could get them to totally give it up. However, there are a lot of recipes in here that I'm going to try like the Kimchi Rice with Beef and the Fruity Breakfast Pilaf.
The Food Matters Cookbook is a fantastic cookbook for anyone who is interested in eating more healthy meals. It's perfect for the beginner but will be enjoyed by even the most accomplished chef because of the variety of creativity of the recipes.
