Review

"This book wins on every count. Healthy in a Hurry has everything I look for in a cookbook-nutrition, efficiency, and great taste-all while maintaining a feeling of luxury and fine dining." LitStack

Healthy in a Hurry strives for delicious, healthy accessible food that won't take you four hours to make. It's arranged by meal type and could not be easier to cook from. That's a big plus when buying a cookbook today. You can feel confident that if you take the time to make these recipes they will work. Even in your kitchen." The Cookbook Man

I have been trying to find recipes lately that I could make for my family that are healthier and do not take a lot of time. I thought this book would be perfect for me to try out. I was really impressed with the beautiful pictures that were in the book that showed each recipe, I was hungry just looking through it.

The book begins with a discussion about how to eat healthier and gives a great list of superfoods, tips for buying them, and how to store them. The book then gives recipes in different sections. Here is a list of some of the recipes that I thought sounded great:

Pumpkin waffles with orange and cinnamon
Broccoli-cheddar soup with sourdough rye croutons
Fresh tomato and basil pasta
Pan-steamed Asian greens
Dark chocolate oatmeal bars

Though I did find some good recipes, this book really wasn't for me. I couldn't find any recipes that my kids would eat at all and none of it looked very filling. This is not a bad cookbook, it just didn't fit my needs of feeding a big hungry family.

There never seems to be enough time in the day to do everything that we want to do and that can include making good, healthy and tasty food. It is often just too easy to fetch take-out, to heat up processed food or just rely on quick and easy-to-make meals.

Healthy in a Hurry sets out to show how you can eat well and healthily without it taking a large chunk out of your pressed timetable. What is more, you need not feel that you are "imprisoned" in a health farm either. There is a variety of choice on offer. Not just basic meals either!

Split into typical meal times (breakfast, snacks, lunch and so on) the book first looks at various motivational and practical reasons for eating healthily and considers some so-called "superfoods" and other health-positive ingredients. Throughout and mixed in with the recipes are many suggestions for efficient time management that can possibly further the reader towards their goals. The book's design is quite informal and friendly, drawing the reader in through its inspirational and aspirational text. It does not read as a staid lecture or high-level academic tome so youe can easily dip a toe in the water and maybe try a few recipes and - presumably - become convinced of the benefits and explore further.

When you consider the range of the meals being promoted it is quite pleasing, showing that you can enjoy much variety and change whilst following a central theme of healthiness. The text gives, in part, reasoning for some of the recipe selections so that you may gain further knowledge and confidence to adapt what has been learned with other recipes and ingredients.

The recipes are easy to follow and ingredients are fresh. I have celiac disease so I like using all fresh ingredients. If needed, I do substitute gluten free items. Recommend to anyone!
