When I first received the cookbook, I was a little surprised at just how many recipes were included. Each page had a tried and true, easy to make recipe... most importantly, they all look like they tasted yummy! Portion control tips and tricks for each recipe are noted on the pages, so it's super easy to be like OK, I eat this much and it's 100 calories. It's actually a REALLY easy cookbook to follow. I mean it. Something I have always wanted to do was to wrap something in parchment paper and bake it in the oven. Why have I never done it? I guess I thought it would be too hard/time consuming... but on a lunch hour this week, I grabbed some Tilapia and I made myself a yummy (and healthy) lunch, baked fish packets with dill!
I literally had all the ingredients in my house: tilapia fillets, lemon juice, butter, minced garlic, salt, pepper and dill. See? Totally doable whether you are spontaneous or if you're putting it in your meal planner! My lunch was quick, easy, healthy and tasty... what more could you ask for?
There are so many other recipes that I am dying to try (eggplant parm casserole, turkey tetrazzini, ratatouille & sausage bake, sweet potato hash and so much more!) that I have been adding them to my meal planner and ensuring that everything is in stock. I really feel like this cookbook has challenged me to make things that have always seemed difficult but really aren't. I know they set out to teach me portion control but to me, this cookbook is more than that. I really do love it, so much that I left a review on Amazon for good measure. I'd like to see this cookbook succeed, that's for sure!
