If you're thinking that cooking healthy is hard, be sure to check out this cookbook! Each dish has only three ingredients, is tasty, and is very good for you.
First, the variety. People who complain that low carbing is boring haven't taken a look at this cookbook. You get Pan Seared Rib-eye with Agurula. There's pot-roasted turkey with smokey onions. How about broccoli smothered in wine and olive oil?
These dishes are not difficult to make. As I said, they all involve just three main ingredients. Some might open your horizons a bit - for example I love snow peas, but I know people who have never tried them. I also love pine nuts! They are quite good for you and tasty too. All of these things can be found at your average supermarket, and once you realize the wealth of healthy foods that you like, your menu planning gets more and more interesting.
Each recipe comes with the total carbs, the fiber, fat, saturated fat, protein, calories, and more - so even if you're not low carbing, you can see just how healthy in all ways these dishes are. The author feels strongly that eating healthy is about watching all of the problem areas and finding dishes that are fresh, healthy, nutritious and low in harmful items.
My one complaint with this book is that there are no photos of dishes. I love photos to help me get an idea of what a dish is all about. I definitely appreciate cookbooks that feature photos of their dishes, so you know what the end result should look like.
Even so, I highly recommend this cookbook. It covers everything from breakfasts to desserts, from drinks to appetizers for parties and main dishes. You can easily eat this way every day for years and never get bored - and amaze your friends and family with delicious, healthy dishes.
