Grazing is one of those food trends that has caught on. According to Paul Dowling, in his book Graze: Healthy Graze Craze Recipes to Kick start your Metabolism, “Grazing is a term used to describe the consumption of tiny, frequent meals throughout the day, usually every three to four hours.” This cookbook includes recipes for small meals (generally 1 or 2 servings) that can be eaten at different times of the day. There are some excellent recipes, here, and they actually turn out.

For those who want to graze, it seems to be a time consuming thing. Because some of the recipes have long lists of ingredients and are not that quick to fix, those who choose to graze will be spending most of their day preparing little meals. Honestly, it may be impossible to get anything else done except to make and eat small meals.

Some favorites include Blackened Salmon Fajitas, Egg Fried Rice in a Mug, Italian Baked Eggs, Cod with Cauliflower Couscous, and Pork Chop with Pineapple Salsa. There are dozens of mouthwatering breakfasts, some of them quick, and luncheon salads and light dishes. The recipes are a mix of vegetarian and non-vegetarian meals so that there is something for everyone. Several recipes are made in mugs.

This cookbook includes several menus to get grazers started. While many of the meals aren’t low calorie, one wonders if even a faster metabolism will result in weight loss.

Unfortunately, there are no photographs of the recipes – not a one. In this day of cell-phone cameras and inexpensive digital cameras, it is ridiculous that the author didn’t bother to photograph the recipes as he tested them. Most readers want to see what the recipes will look like.

Grazers will most likely enjoy many of the recipes, especially if they have time to prepare small meals.
