So Far My Favorite Healthifying Change-up Cookbook
Mar 7, 2009
This cookbook is for those who want to eat healthier and still eat the classic/standard American diet. Though it takes a little planning ahead and thinking about the details these are fairly easy steps toward better eating. Lapine includes helps for store bought items that make it easy to improve standard meals. All the purees can be made ahead and frozen for later use. Most if not all the recipes have more than one healthy addition or change. I love the Brainy Brownies and the Triple Stuffed Potatoes. My family raved about them, too. (I didn't hide the ingredients as much as play a guessing game with them after they ate them, of course.) I plan to prepare more recipes and continue to make the ones we've already claimed as ours.
I did spend some time with Jessica Seinfeld's Deceptively Delicious and like The Sneaky Chef better because of the multiple changes per recipe. I didn't care for the font choice in The Sneaky Chef, though. The ingredients are printed in orange and black. The orange amounts were challenging to read.
