Skinnytaste Fast and Slow: A review

Share this great Radishes Are Pink info:facebooktwitterpinterestmail

If you ever eat dinner you need this book.  Scratch that.  If you ever eat any meal of the day you need this book.  As a registered dietitian nutritionist I am always skeptical of books that have healthy recipes (say, what?!).  I shouldn’t say that, but if we are honest a lot of “healthy” food doesn’t taste very good.  I want the food I eat to taste amazing and also happen to be good for me and my family to eat.  Gina Homolka has a gift for delivering exactly these kind of recipes.  The recipes in Skinnytaste Fast and Slow are healthy, look AMAZING and probably the most exciting thing is that they are not the same old thing you find in every other book that has healthy recipes.  As a longtime follower of the Skinnytaste blog I know Gina’s recipes (can I call her Gina?  I feel like we’re friends) will all taste amazing and I love that there is nutritional information available for each recipe.  This book has recipe symbols to help you identify recipes that are fast or slow cooker or for special diets.  There are even meal plans!  My life is going to be immensely easier when sports start back up and I am harried at dinner time.  First up on our list are Slow Cooker Hawaiian Pork Tacos with Charred Pineapple Salsa, Cold Peanut-Sesame Chicken and Spiralized Cucumber Noodle Salad, Avocado Toast–South of the Border Huevos Revueltos and Spicy Harissa Lamb Ragu.  Thank you, Gina and Heather, for a brilliant book!

A beautiful, soulful book: Far Afield by Shane Mitchell

The pictures in Far Afield by Shane Mitchell are captivating and inviting. Flipping through the book when I first opened it I found myself pausing to really take in the smiles on the faces of the farmers and the intensity of the warriors. This book reminds me of Gourmet magazine. I loved the magazine and this book has everything I loved about Gourmet: gripping stories, amazing photography and mouthwatering recipes. This book is perfect for anyone that loves to know the story behind the food they are eating. I highly recommend it!
