Everyone wants to feel good about what they are eating, serving guests, and feeding their families, but most of us don't do our weekly shopping at pricey specialty stores-- we do it at the local supermarket and we don't want it to break the bank. In her second book, Melissa demystifies the task of preparing nutritious and delicious food by showing exactly how you can make your grocery store work for you. She offers helpful strategies for shopping, cooking, and entertaining, as well as meal blueprints and nutritional information throughout. This book will make you confident about the food you're buying, preparing, and eating. Delicious recipes like Almond Waffles with Raspberry-Basil Sauce, Kale and White Bean Caesar Salad in a Jar, Slow-Roasted Tomato Spaghettini, Flatiron Steaks with Quick Cauliflower Kimchi, and Flourless Fudgy Dream Cookies have something for every type of eater at every meal of the day. No matter your favorite flavors or dietary needs, cooking on a budget is empowering-- and now you can learn how to make every bite count. If cooking at home is the key to healthy living, Supermarket Healthy is the only tool you'll need.
My thoughts: I love that this cook book is geared towards eating healthy on a budget. I live in a small town where the nearest health food store is a good hour or so drive, so (more often then not) I am limited to buying produce from Sam's or Wal-Mart. So, I am thrilled to start putting this cookbook to good use! I think my favorite recipes in this book are probably going to be the salad and vegetable dishes, though I do like her breakfast recipes too (cinnamon popovers, anyone?). I love that she uses a lot of basic ingredients, but also has recipes that will help me get out of my rut by playing with some new spices and blends. This cookbook is a perfect jump start for eating healthier!
I received this book from blogging for books in exchange for my honest review.
