New Family Staple,
This review is from: Deliciously Organic (Hardcover)
A-MAZING. Carrie's cookbook & blog have basically changed my life. Since I've started making the transition to real, unprocessed foods, I've lost weight without calorie counting AND been able to eat dairy, which is a small miracle for me! Plus, I was forced to go gluten free due to migraines & digestive issues & Carrie offers classic, gluten free & even grain free recipes and meal plans.
The cookbook has different information & recipes than the blog, and by learning how to modify recipes at Carrie's instruction, I can now turn just about any recipe into something I can eat, enjoy, & my body can actually process! I was a bit scared at the idea of REAL butter & REAL milk because it is so ingrained in us to eat a low calorie, low fat diet--yet to get those foods, we're eating highly processed foods that aren't "food" and our body doesn't recognize it as food! No wonder my body has been going haywire since I was 16! I saw the review about Carrie's stuff being high in calories and dairy...I was nervous too, but I took the plunge and I'll never go back! Energy is up, sleep is deeper, exercise is more productive, & playing with my toddler is more enjoyable because I'm not beating my head against the wall to say awake! Oh, and I still have some energy left over to be with my husband! : )
