As we move into Spring, I want to thank all of you who have been following my blog and telling your friends and family about my business. You rock! As a thank you, I am giving away a copy of one of my favorite books. 🙂
Before we talk about the giveaway, now is the time to update your feeds and bookmarks so you can check out my blog on a regular basis. Also, consider signing up for my free gift and newsletter in the box on the right. I put together a day's worth of meals and shopping lists to make cooking a breeze. Check it out!
I’m so excited to offer my first blogger giveaway: The Whole Truth Eating and Recipe Guide full of amazing, easy, and delicious recipes!
Andrea Beaman is the author of this kick ass cookbook. She is an inspiration to me and so many others out there on a mission to eat "real" food. Delicious stuff. When I studied nutrition in NYC a few years ago, I had the pleasure to meet Andrea and attend a few of her cooking classes. The one class I attended she served some greens with this amazing dressing on them. I knew right there and then this chick knew what she was talking about! She made dark leafy greens taste decadent - not overcooked and mushy!
You all know how much I adore "real food." In the past few months, I have used this book quite a bit. I’ve also found myself telling my clients and friends things that I have learned from this book including the amazing and easy recipes. I made the Shrimp with Pungent Plum Sauce (page 163) the other night for my hubby and he loved it. 🙂 He sent me a text the next day thanking me again for the amazing dinner. Woot!
One of the best tidbits (besides recipes) in this book is about being true to yourself. Learning what foods your body likes.
Another little factoid I love in the book is learning how to eat based on the seasons. Doing this helps you feel better, save cash at the store and lose weight.
Just one more reason to eat a varied diet!
In addition, this book also has recipes for some amazing desserts. Yes, I said it. Desserts can be healthy too. The recipes for Brown Rice Crispy Treats (page 195) and Creamy Coconut Almond Rice Pudding (page 197) will knock your socks off. This book uses real ingredients that can be found at your local grocery store: rice, kale, parsley, lemon, apples. Nothing too weird or exotic. 🙂
