If you love salads and eat salads quite often, it may get just a tad, shall I say, boring? This delightful book has 260 varieties of decidedly healthy salad options. After delving into the recipes in a serious sort of way, and trying out more than a couple, I am pleased with the book. We are taught first how to build a salad from the base to vegetables and fruit to protein options to toppings and fresh herbs and for the pièce de résistance, dressings and herbs. The recipes have options for raw alternatives if there may be prosciutto or shaved parmesan are called for in the original creation, or perhaps an omnivore alternative to a vegan salad. The salads are categorized as raw, vegan, omnivore, pescatarian or vegetarian and the photography is mouthwatering awesome. There are grain salads and green salads and everything in between. A lot went into this book and I now have myself quite a few new delightful creations added to my dinner table. I obtained this book from Bethany House Publishing , and the opinion is my own.
When two masters unite there can be nothing but intriguing. When those two masters are Dwyer and Hicks, it is nothing but magical. In a question and answer interview format, Dr. Wayne Dyer interviews like the professional he is and Abram Hicks, well, is Abraham Hicks…abundant wisdom, light hearted and communicates in a way that you truly understand. Some of the masters are above my head but I am totally comfortable with this conversation. There is revelation after revelation in a clear and concise manner. If you are truly listening, you will get much out of this conversation. I received this book from Hay House and the opinion is my own and unbiased.
I had no previous experience with eating or cooking soul food and based upon the jacket I decided to give it a whirl. Every single recipe I have tried in this book is pleasantly healthy, easy to prepare and truly delicious. You don’t get better than that. I am a conscious eater and it is rare that I will prepare meals that are not super healthy. I did not have to weed any recipes or sections out so far. I have also been asked to share the recipes that were brought to girlfriend potlucks and more than one woman inquired about the book. Now that, says speaks volumes right there. This well designed and thought out book begins with a family history and ends with ‘Recipes for a Crowd”. I have not tried any of the drinks yet, in the section listed as Sips and Bites however I can tell by the ingredients I will not be disappointed and am looking forward to summer time gatherings and new drinks to share.
Some of my favorites so far are Broccoli with peanuts and raisins, Savory Avocado Salad, Sweet Potato Skewers, the Eggplant tower and every single soup. I have had the book just over a week. As you can guess, I highly recommend this book for ease of use, quality of writing, binding, and oh yes.. the food.
I was given this book by Bethany House for review and my opinions are my own.
