The scientific method, ecosystems, food chains and other concepts make this book a good one for every library. Read my review here.
Cookbooks Packed With Nutritious Recipes
Clean Slate: A Cookbook and Guide By Martha Stewart Living. What doesn’t Martha know? Now she is telling us how to eat healthfully. The recipes look delicious and the photos are beautiful. I don’t agree with the wellness tips 100%, but most of them are spot on. For those looking to “eat clean” with supermarket ingredients, this cookbook fits the bill.
Michelle Tam is the genius behind the blog nom nom paleo. Along with her husband, Henry Fong, she has created a cookbook that belongs in every kitchen. The format is that of a comic book! What?! I know! There are caricatures of her family and each dialog block contains a photo of the recipe in progress. Never mind the awesome format, the recipes are flavorful and easy for a busy family to get on the table. She is very mindful of sticking with Paleo cooking which makes these recipes allergy-friendly. They have included 4 weeks of meal plans with grocery lists provided! Also included are recipes for pantry staples with real food ingredients like sriracha sauce, stir-fry sauce and grain-free tortillas. This cookbook is a treasure!
