I’m a firm believer of healthy eating habits >>>> dieting, so I’m always looking for recipes that are tasty but also good for you. I don’t own a ton of cookbooks, though, but wanted to change that this year so I’d have more variety when I cooked at home, so I picked up 28 Days of Clean Eating: The Healthy Way to Kick Dieting Forever (Sonoma Press) recently at the bookstore.
I’m lucky that I have no food allergies and am open to trying anything at least once, and I’m excited to try out many of the dishes listed in here. It’s technically a 28 day meal plan developed by the creators of Clean Eating Made Simple, but that’s a plus to me because it gives you a better idea of how to design your meals so that they make sense to your palette and your life.
It has over 150 recipes (including Eggs Poached in Spicy Tomato Sauce , Vietnamese Tofu Lettuce Wraps, and even Carrot Cake Cupcakes!), tips on meal prep and a shopping list, so it’s a cool resource to help you stay on track with a healthier lifestyle. I’ve found that some sort of planning-whether with meal prep or just making sure I have healthy ingredients at home-is essential to eating right. I’ve yet to have to sacrifice taste for health, so this was a good bonus to add to the mix!
