I've made so many of Christi Silbaugh's recipes that I've now headed to her website to find even more!
This book would make a great gift for someone starting a yoga practice.
Author: Christi Silbaugh
Publisher: Front Table Books
“My goal with this book is to show you how you can eat healthy and exercise on a budget, to make sure you realize that you cannot out-exercise a bad diet, and to introduce you to real whole foods that taste amazing and are easy to make,” Christi Silbaugh writes in the introduction to her book, "Nourish: The Beginner’s Guide to Eating Healthy and Staying Fit."
At two hundred pages and forty pages, this paperback targets those interested in organic food recipes and yoga exercises. With full-color photographs covering about three-fourths of the food recipes, there are seventy-five creations. Measurement equivalents and a recipe index along with the author’s biography complete the book. There is no beginning list of food items to quickly look up nor an index at the end of named yoga positions.
After a foreword by Heather Foat and an introduction that discusses seven harmful chemicals in everyday foods, the book is divided into four sections: healthy grab-and-go snacks, feed the machine, secret sauces, and healthy sweet treats. There are no sections on salads or soups or no division of meals such as breakfast, lunch, and dinner. With actual yoga poses spread throughout each section of the book, the focus is not simply about food.
The recipe usually begin on the left side of the open page with an italicized statement about its specialty. Serving size is after the title with ingredients listed as used. Paragraph directions are given, rarely mentioning caloric information or preparation time. Sometimes there are full-page photographs of completed dishes.
The twenty-eight snacks range from apple chips, cauliflower tops, and chocolate protein granola to cucumber chips and salsa, green pina colada, and vegan cashew mayonnaise. The twenty-three main meals include options such as almond crust pizza, Caprese pasta, almond falafel wrap, and oven-baked omelets. Sauces contain seven listings like caramel sauce, date paste, and healthy hoisin sauce. Seventeen desserts that often use Medjool dates complete the book with suggestions of apple pie cookies, cinnamon roll protein bars, raw vegan whipped cream, and strawberry parfait.
The yoga exercises are usually on the right side of the pages but sometimes have a full-color photographs included. With seventy-five poses given, they are shown every one to two pages. There is no way to look up poses such as the bridge, crescent lunge, dancer, forearm balance, shoelace, or twisted chair position.
With a book that focuses on exercise and organic foods using often nuts, avocados, and coconut oil along with a food processor, many beginners to the art of yoga and healthy eating will enjoy this eclectic collection.
Thanks to Cedar Fort for furnishing this complimentary book in exchange for a review of the reader’s honest opinion.
I like how it has recipes that are healthier whole foods, instead of just telling you to move she shows you some yoga moves and explains them. Christi has also thrown in quotes to inspire you to keep trying and moving.
I never think to do anything with cauliflower besides steaming it. She bakes it, makes tator tots and other yummy ideas.
The recipes are ones that anyone can do. She has a healthier deviled eggs recipe without the mayonnaise. I love deviled eggs.
Her cookies look good and you need food processor instead of oven which would be real nice especially for summer months. I am going to have to buy some dates they are very useful in this cookbook.
The pictures are beautiful of the dishes. They make me want to go and try them. The pictures of the yoga models makes me want to go to beach. The scenery is so peaceful and beautiful.
The yoga I don't think I can do any especially by myself. I need the bed or chair yoga to start with but it gives me ideas. She gives you the name of the position, tells you how to do it and has someone doing the position in a photo.
I was given this ebook to read by Cedar Fort Publishing. In return I agreed to give a honest review of Nourish and be part of it's blog tour.
