What a great Book! Amanda Haas has put together an all-purpose self-help book that seems to cover all bases for living a good life. The Vibrant Life: Eat Well, Be Well (Holistic Beauty and Nutrition Cookbook, Recipes for Health and Wellness). It covers not only nutrition, but also daily exercise, yoga, sleep habits, and everything in between to feel good. Being a foodie, I was most interested in the recipes - usually books of this type include recipes only suitable to eat if starving. Haas, however, has skipped the kale and tree-hugger garbage and included recipes that real people will want to eat. In fact, even though the recipes are gluten-free, they are delicious, and obviously tested, since they turn out perfectly.
Especially impressive are the wide choice of heavenly salads: Strawberry-Arugula Salad with Toasted Almonds and Mint, Green Bean and Snap Pea Salad with Mustard Vinaigrette , and Late Summer Salad with Heirloom Tomatoes, Stone Fruit, Goat Cheese, and Pistachios to name a few, and she has also included all purpose salad dressings that are easy and delicious. There are mouthwatering soups, breakfasts, meat, seafood, and poultry dishes, and desserts that are also very good. All the recipes are fairly healthy, and are family-friendly. Most are even suitable for guests.
The prose in the book is well-written and easily understandable, as well as easy-to-follow in the cases of yoga and exercise, since there are photographs to help those who are unfamiliar. The recipes are also well-written and easy-to-follow; they are suitable for both beginning and experienced cooks. Unfortunately there aren't photographs of every recipe, but the photographs that are included are beautiful and make the recipes look mouthwatering.
This excellent book would make a great gift for anyone who wants to make their life better. It?s a great thing to give daughters, and a good book to cook from.
Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
