This book includes more "Comfort foods" and "traditional entrees" (although her other book has tons of meals that are meant to be eaten at dinner!). Really both books are definitely fantastic purchases, and I recommend owning both of them. If you're new to healthy eating, and only want to buy one book initially, maybe go for this one first because the comfort foods category. It might accelerate the healthy eating acclamation process.
My favorite recipes (so far) are:
Breakfast: Frosty Chocolate hake, Freezer Oat Waffles, Orange-Mango Creamsicle Smoothie
Soups: Mexican Quinoa Stew
Snacks: Cashew Queso
Comfort Foods: Sloppy Joe-Stuffed Sweet Potatoes, Philly Cheesesteak-stuffed Spaghetti Squash, Butternut Mac 'n' Cheese, Vegan Shepherd's Pie
I was most skeptical about the Mac 'n' Cheese because of the butternut squash base, but it was one of my favorite dishes. If you go into it expecting to try new things, instead of trying to exactly replicate indulgent dishes, you'll likely love the results. Highly recommended!
I am very budget-conscious, so I love that the cost per serving is noted and the shopping lists are certainly helpful for anyone wanting help with meal planning. I would say this book makes healthy eating a real possibility for those looking to make some changes and it's wonderful for families like mine who strive for healthy eating habits daily. This book is a total winner, worth every penny!
Detox has become somewhat of a fad, and often not a healthy one. There are numerous juice bars popping up that suggest that we sip nothing but green juice for 5 days -which yes, will detox you, but also does not work for families, those of us that do intensive workouts and too often than not, it will confuse the metabolism that will slow down as it tries desperately to preserve those limited calories. This book gets it right -clean, healthy eating that is good for the body and still has enough calories to satiate the whole family.
The book begins with some basic and practical information beginning with overcoming excuses for healthy eating , how the book will help you detox, how to use the book, time saving tips, an easy to follow shopping list or one for the budget conscious, and even a started 5 day meal plan idea. It is all easy to read, and encouraging without being condescending.
There are then 8 categories: Shakes and Morning favorites, salads and dressings, soups and sides, game day appetizers / on the go snacks, comfort food and casseroles, skillets and stir fries, sweet treats and finally healthier homemade staples – which between them feature 100 recipes. Also a stand out for this book – is there is a complete nutritional guide to each meal at the back showing calories, fat content, carbs, fiber and protein. I have so many cookbooks and interestingly the vast majorities in this category fail to include any nutritional information at all. It is different not having them attached to each recipe but also somewhat ingenious as if you are looking for a low carb or high protein meal -you can simply flip to these pages and let those guide you to your ideal dish.
Another stand out -simple to make meals and simple to source ingredients – nothing weird here, no need to source sea vegetables or Irish Moss here (yes I have other books that call for both !). The cashew butter spice muffins are delicious (flour and refined sugar free) ; the Thai salad is my go to for lunch and honestly I make this even simpler as Trader Joes serves pre shredded cabbage and carrots ready to go, the chickpea and avocado egg salad is also really fun and simple to make. I am no expert in the kitchen, so these were simple, easy and most importantly quick to make. I was also excited that my kids like the strawberry and cream freezer pops which are a nice alternative to the junk in the ice cream aisle.
This books stands out for its simplicity and the fact that those of us short on time but wanting to feed everyone in the family healthy meals that will actually be eaten, have so many choices. Great book, great price and love the concept!
