Cooks&Books&Recipes Editors’ Notes:
In addition to recipes sure to inspire anyone toward healthy eating, this cookbook contains “The Healthy Kitchen Guide,” with tips on stocking your pantry, refrigerator, and freezer. Medearis also offers tips on various fruits, vegetables, and other ingredients. For instance, did you know that people who eat kohlrabi and other cruciferous vegetables have been found to have a lower incidence of the risk factors for type 2 diabetes and heart disease? And the recipe noted below calls for almond flour because it’s gluten-free, which makes it a low-carb substitute for wheat flour in baked goods. A final bonus of this cookbook is the mouth-watering photos by Penny De Los Santos.
