Two of my all time favorite cookbook authors are coming out with another cookbook that you can pre-order on Amazon. I am thinking another giveaway might be in order. Stay tuned for details. For now, here's the skinny on this book! Go here for more info. The authors both have their education in nutrition and their knowledge of food is really something. I have yet to follow one of their recipes and have it not turn out. Here's what they have to say about it:
The purpose of this book is to help you transition into a gluten-free lifestyle and also provide the tools you need to make informed dietary choices.
Nourishing Meals contains over 300 new whole foods recipes, as well as detailed information about health particularly relating to nutrition for conception, pregnancy, and childhood. You'll learn about the nutrients needed and how to best obtain them, as well as factors that can affect health during these critical stages, such as environmental exposure to chemicals. We also covered many of the causes of food allergies and sensitivities, and what you can do to help prevent them. And because raising a healthy child also involves making sure they actually eat nourishing food, we provided detailed information on raising healthy eaters from pregnancy onwards (yes, healthy eating habits actually begin in the womb!).
Before each recipe chapter you'll find information pertaining to that chapter and "10 Tips." For example, in the Salads and Vegetables chapter you'll find information on the vital phytochemicals in plants as well as ways to get your children to eat more vegetables. There are then 10 Tips for adding more vegetables to your child's diet. In the Dessert chapter we discussed alternatives to refined sugar and offered 10 Tips for using natural sweeteners. We hope that this will make the book more practical for you.
The book consists of vegan, vegetarian, meat-based, grain-based, grain-free, nut-free, nut-based recipes...pretty much the whole spectrum of eating....because there is no one way nor one perfect diet for everyone. Additionally, speckled throughout the recipes, you will find detailed nutrition tips to help you understand exactly why certain foods are beneficial for health!
