"Though readers will likely find The Meal Deal shelved in the diet section of a given library, to call it a 'diet book' alone would be to do it a disservice. It's a cookbook, it's a lifestyle change planning guide, and it's a supportive review of the tricks and traps involved in a lifelong process of achieving and maintaining good health, and should be part of any health-conscious reader's formula for a better life." --Diane Donovan
"The Meal Deal is a book that provides concrete, actionable steps that makes meal planning and healthy eating a lifelong habit. It truly feels like you have your own personal nutrition coach by your side helping you make decisions on organizing your kitchen for meal prep, choosing the best meals that work for your health goals, meal planning, and much more.
The biggest point that Schreiber makes in The Meal Deal is this is not a book about dieting. This is a book about making the necessary changes in the way you approach food preparation and how to maintain that approach for a lifetime of healthy eating. The most positive aspect of The Meal Deal is the constant level of support that Schreiber provides the reader on this journey of preparing healthy meals on a weekly basis." --Turquessa Francis, Reedsy Discovery
