Water is a wonderful little secret to weight loss but can be boring just drinking glass after glass of just water each day. This is where this E-book comes in, Joan has put together some great recipes that you can make at home instead of paying over the top prices for sugar laden drinks bought off the supermarket shelf. Some of the recipes are a crafty way to up your intake of water hence avoiding dehydration.
My favorites are the tropical blend drink and the lite orange imitation sangria (she also has recipes for those who like some alcohol in their drinks).
I recommend this for those who desire lower fat, lesser calorie alternatives to the usual full calorie beverages and saving money on the expensive bottled, sugar laden drinks, that aren't really that good for us as they have hardly any nutrients in them anyway.
We all know we should drink at least 2 liters of liquid per day, but water is so incredibly boring and there is only so much of green tea you want to drink. What I really like about this recipe book is the great variety of drinks: shakes, smoothies, punches, flavoured water - and even some light alcoholic drinks.
All recipes come with nutritional information and I think that this is very helpful information. Unfortunately so many recipe books and drinks books don't feature this information.
I've seen that some reviewers complained about the fact that a few recipes of the book still have a lot of calories - I think it all depends on what your objective is and what you compare against. The recipes here contain healthy ingredients - fruits, skim yogurt, etc. So the result are healthy drinks. Healthy does not necessarily mean low-calories, just by adding fruits you obviously add a lot of calories. But it all depends on what you compare it against. If you compare against most of the commercially available drinks you'll find that the recipes here have less calories - obviously, if you compare against water, that's a completely different story.
The recipe book comes with an interactive TOC that works with the Kindle navigation system. The font size of the recipes is by default quite small, but you can obviously change this in the menu settings of your kindle. Personally I would change the artificial sweetener with Stevia or Xylitol, but that's a personal choice and a substitution that can be easily made.
In general, I find that there's a great variety of healthy, low-fat drinks here, and the formatting is also nice and professional.
Let me start by staying that Amazon has a big selection of recipe books for your Kindle.
This is just one of the many I found. Recipe books on everything from Smoothies, Cakes,
Cookies, Crockpot recipies, Pies, Side dishes and so much more. And the fact they are
on your Kindle for easy access with out having a lot of recipe books taking up space in
the kitchen is a great way to save on space.
This book has a great list of drink ideas from smoothies to making flavored water.
