Readers curious to know what TV star Mehmet Oz and his family eat will appreciate these appealing and wholesome recipes for meals, snacks, desserts, and drinks. The recipes themselves are the work of author Oz, a bestselling writer and television producer who often cohosts The Dr. Oz Show; her husband, the eponymous Dr. Oz, contributes a foreword and nutritional information throughout, explaining the benefits of black pepper and why yogurt is gut friendly. The couple and their children are featured in family photographs and anecdotes about recipes. The author is clear that this is not a diet book but one that “supports a healthy lifestyle,” and there’s no preachy advice, just helpful and inspiring recipes for meals. Her clever menu planning for her family of vegetarians, flexitarians, pescetarians, and gluten avoiders often consists of add-ins for the mainly plant-based recipes, such as the Wagababy Pot with udon and Asian vegetables. Strong flavors replace fat in the grilled summer squash and onion sandwich with green chile mayonnaise, and the poached eggs on garlic toast with truffle oil and jalapeño. Readers probably won’t be surprised to find out the Oz family “never tires of kale,” but they can delight in this guide to eating food that’s both wholesome and delicious. (Oct.)
