Overall I think the concept is sound. The recipes are fantastic, but it would be nice if the recipe page numbers were listed next to those items listed in the 7 day menus. Not sure why ham would be a sandwich choice vs turkey in one of the 7 day plans. Don't know why water is occasionally mentioned in the 7 day plan as opposed to every meal. Not "single person" friendly as all of the recipes are for 4 or 8 servings - too big, actually for most families. Not sure why some easy "adds" wouldn't be included. As an example, why not always use spinach as opposed to nutrient void lettuce? The "mini egg scramble" is simply on egg nuked. Huh? Why not fry it, add spinach & tomato and make an egg sandwich? The book touts real fruit over juice but the 7 day plan includes juice in several places. Also, why hot chocolate vs the benefits of a mocha (per the book related to caffeine). Again, great resource, great recipes but could be more user friendly. One last thing, for a 7 day menu it would be good to incorporate recipe items that could be used among many dishes . . . very expensive to buy all of the ingredients for any one week.
