I have tried to eat healthier for years, but as it turns out I just don’t like being hungry! I go through cycles of eating really “healthy” for a few months, but then I can’t handle being so hungry and unsatisfied all the time, so I go back to eating whatever sounds good.
This book showed me why those “healthy” recipes were leaving me hungry and unsatisfied. It explained in simple terms how to cook foods that fuel me in a steady way (rather than just a short term boost that fizzles out quickly).
A lot of the healthy cookbooks I have downloaded in the past seemed unrealistic — in other words, I couldn’t imagine making the recipes more than once. These recipes are laid out in a smart way and are easy to cook from right off your iPad in the kitchen. I have cooked almost all the recipes in this book and haven’t found any I didn’t enjoy. The amount of food you get to eat for the calories is fantastic. NOTE: I did find that it was helpful to set your iPad not to auto lock (in the general settings app – so the screen stays on while you cook).
I decided to do a week long test of eating mostly the food from this book and truly noticed a big change in my attitude, overall energy throughout the day, and–most shocking to me–a true lack of hunger. I finally feel like I know how to eat!
I can’t go on enough about how much this has changed my life. I am recommending it to everyone I know!
