5.0 out of 5 stars "I like to think of this book as one long recipe for well-being.", November 5, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Giada's Feel Good Food: My Healthy Recipes and Secrets (Kindle Edition)
“I like to think of this book as one long recipe for well-being,” Giada De Laurrentiis says in the acknowledgments of "Giada’s Feel Good Food: My Healthy Recipes and Secrets." The book is broken down into recipes for each meal of the day, juices and smoothies, snacks and desserts. The introduction includes a month of menus. In addition to nutritional information, each recipe has icons denoting if it is vegetarian, vegan, gluten-free or dairy-free. The introduction and the tips interspersed throughout the book mostly say things we all know—pay attention to portion size, find an exercise you like and do it, use sunscreen, etc. The benefit, for me at least, is that reading those pages and seeing the photos of the dishes is like going to a pep rally. I’m pumped and raring to go.

I grabbed some paper and a pen and started reading as soon as the book downloaded to my iPad this morning. Four hours later, I have a list of the recipes I want to try soonest and a very long list for the grocery store I’m hitting next. I’ve highlighted plenty of recipes I want to try besides the Oatmeal with Olive Oil that I made for breakfast. My top priorities include the Spanish Potato Omelet, Chicken Chopped Salad in Butternut Lettuce Cups, Soba Noodle Salad and Ladybug Pops. After that, I’ll have some time to experiment with the many gluten-free recipes before our out-of-state gluten-free company arrives for Christmas.

And that oatmeal with olive oil, thyme and lemon zest that sounded a little out there? Great—even my husband agreed. I’m glad there’s some left over for tomorrow.
