When you are on the road to eating healthy, it all starts with what and how you cook. You need to prepare your family healthy meals if you want them to be healthier and to lose weight. The first way to do that is by learning healthy recipes from a cookbook.
One recommended book for this purpose is the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook by Pearl Barrett and Serene Allison. This is the first cookbook for both writers who are also chefs and have a passion for healthy cooking and eating. With this cookbook, you have over 350 different recipes to choose from. It is in a paperback form, so it is easy to look through the book and hold it open long enough to follow a recipe.
If you are a cooking beginner or just are not accustomed to making healthier meals, this is a really good cookbook to start with. This is likely part of the reason it is so highly rated on Amazon. The cookbook lets you learn the basics of cooking with easy-to-follow instructions with each and every recipe. You can make delicious egg-based breakfasts, healthy pizza for dinner, waffles, bread, and soup or chili from scratch.
Variety is one of the best benefits to this healthy eating cookbook. Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook uses a lot of different cooking appliances, including your slow cooker! It has some recipes that are one-pot meals where all ingredients are placed in a single pan or pot for ease of cooking. You can make recipes with meat, fruits and vegetables, gluten-free, fat-free, low-carb, and even vegetarian. There are also some delicious snacks and desserts that are easy to make but also good for you.
The cookbook also includes some additional recipes from fellow cooking bloggers to add even more to the book. A minor disadvantage is that it uses some ingredients you might not currently have in your pantry and that you may not be familiar with, such as raw apple cider vinegar, nutritional yeast, and xylitol. However, it explains about these ingredients and how to use them best in your recipes, so this can actually be a good thing!
We highly recommend the Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook! While designed mainly for moms and women who are trying to be healthier and get a fit body, it can be great for anyone who simply wants to cook more at home and follow a healthy diet.
