Nourishing Meals: Healthy Gluten-Free Recipes for the Whole Family cookbook review
Since Ali sent my review copy of her new book, Nourishing Meals, two days ago I have been spending every free moment reading it. From the moment it arrived I've wished that I could do nothing else but read it. This is a book that anyone would love, but if you have children or are planning on having children—this is a must-read book. My nose was glued to the page as I read about environmental toxicity, chronic inflammation, leaky gut, imbalanced flora, introducing solid foods, snacking and more.
And the recipes in this book are nothing short of spectacular, as I knew they would be. I'm less than half way through reading it, and I've already marked 10 recipes that I can't wait to eat, all of which are grain-free. They include: Baby Green Smoothie (for Ginger, but really for all of us), Raw Breakfast Tacos, Zucchini Almond Pancakes, Coconut Flour Biscuits, Date Walnut Cinnamon Swirl Muffins, and Healing Ginger Miso Soup. (As you can tell I left off in the soup chapter : )
But I had to dive into a recipe before I could even finish the book—I was so excited. I had a bunch of very ripe bananas, so I made Coconut Banana Breakfast Cake. It couldn't have been simpler, and it came out amazing. That's it in the photo above.
Love this book. I want to give one to everyone I know. ♥, Kelly
