I think you would get as much out of the website, as I don't use my book as much as the website.

It seems that several of you have bought the spark cookbook. What do you think? If I am living on a tight budget, is it worth it? Or just keep using the web site?

I purchased the SP cookbook and I have Dr. Phil's cookbook. I also have take quite a few recipes off the SP website. Some I did like some I didn't.

I love SparkPeople

We get a lot of our recipes from spark like veggie chili, slow cooker salsa chicken, roasted veggies, slow cooker lasagna, slow cooker marinara chicken just to name a few and sometimes we even make these recipes healhier by changing the beef to turken or chicken and what not. We use a lot of black beans, brown rice and whole wheat also. You would be surprised how much more satisfied you feel when you start eating healthier.

I have lots of recipe sources, but I have been using Sparkrecipes alot more now. Another "go to" for me is the Fix-it-and-Forget-It Lightly crockpot cookbook.

I get lots of my recipes from Clean Eating magazine and online, Oxygen magazine and online, Dr. Fehrman books and online, along with the American Diabetes Association publications and Prevention magazine and cookbooks. In addition, I have many hours of RDA and School Nutrition education under my belt, and I write many of my own recipes based on a primarily vegetable and fruit based diet. I have been teaching basic nutrition for many years through the state extension service but not as a nutritionist. Having worked in preschool and special education programs, we are required to pass testing on our knowledge of nutrition for children. I have and continue to teach children with Autism, and it was very popular a few years ago for parents to insist on wheat free, gluten free, dairy free diets. We had to be able to plan menus that met nutrition needs of growing children and meet the criteria of gluten and dairy free. Plus I have a dairy allergic grand daughter, and she has been an education for the last 12 years. She cannot eat or even touch a dairy product. So lots of recipe creation practice.

I really like the recipes from sparkpeople. I quite often bookmark featured ones for future use. You can get a recipe for almost anything from the site.
