it's all good, by gwyneth paltrow

There has been a lot of criticism re: this book - some of it (namely that it would cost a fortune to eat like this daily) is definitely substantiated. Plus, some of the ingredients might be a bit hard to find, especially if you live in a country without a Whole Foods. It does, however, feature some really nice recipes & photography.  I haven't tried any of the recipes yet (a bit incapacitated from a surgery at the moment), but from what I've seen the recipes really do seem to hit that "hearty, but healthy"-type. 
All the recipes are marked with labels (see: protein packed, elimination diet etc.) & at the end there are weekly meal plans for all different kinds of diets (body building, detoxing etc.)

Has anyone else gotten this book & tried any recipes yet? If so, please do let me know which ones & if you would recommend making them. Maybe I'll put up a real review once I've gotten around to trying some recipes myself.

"We've intellectualized food when it's not a mental exercise. It's a sensorial experience. Food comes from the earth. So do we. The tastes, textures, smells, and colors of food are reminders of our visceral connection to the essential life energy of the earth. Food also keeps us aware that we're partners in a process that's much larger than ourselves."
Foreword, by Dr. Habib Sadeghi
