Cookbook Review – More Choices: Eat Well, Live Well

Today I’m going to share a review for More Choices: Eat Well, Live Well by Cheryl D. Thomas-Peters Ph.D and James A. Peters.

One of my friends gave me this cookbook back in the days when I was still only borderline interested in vegetarianism. It sat on the shelf for a long time, but in the last year and especially in the last few months I’ve taken to trying stuff from it and finding it a treasure trove of deliciousness.

Six recipes I’ve tried:

  • Breakfast Scones: Very tasty
  • Mexican Chili Burgers: Very good, although I felt they needed a little more salt.
  • Oven-Baked Mexi-Fries: Delicious! I’ve done many seasoning variations to go with different main dishes with this recipe as a base.
  • Italian Vegetable Soup: Yum!
  • Hearty Rice Skillet: Good.
  • Mexican Baked Potatoes with Bean and Corn Salsa: This was excellent and a big hit when I served it to our Friday night Bible study group.


  • Lots of photos, a clean layout, and a decent index.
  • 12 lifestyle guidelines for better health including information on fresh air, avoiding refined foods, sleep, and other such things.
  • Lots of valuable information on calcium, iron, and the vegetarian diet.
  • Nutritional analysis in the back of the book for all the recipes.


  • It’s not strictly vegan (if that’s a con), since it has the option of using eggs and milk OR the vegan substitutes.

This book is an excellent choice for:

  • Someone who’s still in the transitional period between traditional diet and healthier diet
  • Someone who’s undecided about being vegetarian, or just wanting to dip their toes in and see how it goes
  • Someone who simply wants some healthy recipes to improve diabetes, cholesterol, or another health issue

If you’re interested in purchasing a copy, you can head over to Amazon.
