I’d like to thank Netgalley & BenBella Books. I received a copy of this cookbook in exchange for an honest review.
My Rating: ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
I’m not perfect-not at eating healthy or anything else!
Since I live a soy free, nut free and gluten free life, it can sometimes be a challenge to prep meals or find recipes that can accommodate our food restrictions/allergies.
As soon as I saw this book, I was intrigued and knew I wanted to get my hands on it.
To be honest, I usually skim through the introduction. Sometimes I don’t even bother reading it and jump right into the recipes. However, this was one of the few cookbooks where I actually took an interest to the author and read the intro. I love that Diana is an everyday mom like myself. She’s not a health freak, doctor or someone with a list of nutrition degrees. She’s just a regular person who happens to know and appreciate good food. I’m a foodie, so delicious meals and desserts are a must which can be tough when it comes to gluten-free goodies. I’ve come across quite a few unsuccessful gluten-free recipes lately, so this book was perfect! Since I also happen to have a 4 year old who’s a picky eater, he was the perfect person to put these recipes to the test.
The best part about this book is that the recipes are very easy to follow. No training necessary. Even my 10 year old can do it!
I’m not technical and I use the least amount of precision necessary.
Some favourites were:
• Crab Cake Eggs Benedict
• Double Chocolate Zucchini Muffins
• 3 Ingredient Pancakes
•Garlic Herb Chicken Tenders
Whether you have food allergies like me, or you’re looking to make a healthier change in your diet, I would recommend checking out this book!
