I have wondered about ordering the Spark Solution, but I really want to know how different it is from the spark. I have both the book and the audio of that one, what if it isnt very different at all? I was thinking of asking a Spark Coach, but maybe the best thing to do is wait and ask other sparkers after May.

I haven't pre-ordered "Spark Solution," nor do I have "Spark." I'm not much into reading motivational, self-help books. I always have good intentions but they end up being a waste of money because I don't make it more than half way through.
I did purchase the cookbook. I looked through the entire thing and most of the recipes look pretty good. I'm going to try the first one this weekend. I don't have an opinion on the organization yet. However, I didn't like that, as you are flipping through the book, there is very little to let you know you are moving from one chapter to the next. And there definitely are not enough pictures of the completed meals. SInce people eat with their eyes first, they are attracted to recipes by the picture.
I pre-ordered 'The Spark Solution.' I think 'The Spark' is fantastic and motivating. I have the cookbook, as well as the e-book 'Easy Vegan Meals by SparkPeople.' I'm not vegan. I guess you'd call me flexitarian. I find that meatless meals are easier for me and I feel good eating them. My problem - I cannot, at least not at this time, give up a cheeseburger sometimes, cheese, eggs . . . I don't really care about steak, pork, etc. I eat a lot of fish, eggs, cheese. I have to be careful with the cheese because it has a lot of calories. But, yes, I definitely ordered it.

Hi Casey I am glad I am not the only one. I wanted to make "healthy peanut butter cookies" I could not find anything in the book. Besides a Mediaterean cookbook it is all I have that is healthy. Should I have the first book before using the Solution one?

I have pre ordered the new book and can't wait to receive it. I think it's going to help a lot. I had the original book and liked it but then I donated it to the library along with other books. Wish now I had kept it. Oh well, new book is coming and hopefully others will get good use out of the book I donated! Have a great day.
