I’ve already mentioned this book a couple of times on this blog, including in my last post about the simple joy of making dinner. I am cooking my way through it: all simple, easy and delicious recipes that don’t take too much time. For example, a few nights ago we had the balsamic-glazed brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes and red onions, one of the most delicious things I’ve ever cooked, or eaten.
Making food at home can often feel overwhelming, but with this accompanying guide to It Starts With Food, it is much simpler thanks to the clear guidelines and great recipes. The fact that I can now make healthy homemade mayo with olive oil in a flash amazes me– and it shows me what I can do with a little bit of planning and preparation.
Though it’s really important to start by reading It Starts With Food, The Whole 30: The 30-Day Guide to Total Health & Food Freedom is a must for anyone trying to eat right, have more energy and infuse more balance into life.
On Whole30.com, they’ve shared a few recipes from the book as a preview of what’s inside:
- Grilled Steak With Garlic-Shallot Puree
- Chicken Cacciatore (I’ve tried this one– it’s delicious and so impressive. You’ll be so proud of what you’ve made).
- Seared Salmon Benedict
And here are a couple more recipes as well from ABC that I’ve tried and love for:
- Burgers With Sweet Potato Buns
- Chicken Meatballs (pairs great with their herbed homemade mayo dip)
