I thought ‘Everyday Detox’ would definitely be a good book to mention, the name of the book and the site which it was borne from-‘Detoxinista’ might throw people off, thinking this is a diet book/site. I don’t diet, I won’t diet and one day I shall share my super (okay, not that secret) secret (and totally simple) method to always be slim, have clear skin, shiny hair and be healthy with lots of energy and still be able to eat chocolate (or drink wine), but for today we will discuss the book. Another beautifully photographed and easy to follow guide to cooking whole foods. I had been looking to find ways to make bread type items out of vegetables or pantry staples like beans, something that wouldn’t taste like cardboard or have me soaking anything for hours at a time. Again, my search was inspired by my daughter who would love to only be allowed to eat bread and cheese (wouldn’t we all?) I wanted to find something that would replace the bread, I am always looking for ways to incorporate more vegetables into her life, seriously it is almost evangelical my veggie mission. My search brought me to Detoxinista and the companion cookbook. The cover photograph is of the cauliflower flat bread ‘pizza’ which as the name implies is a flat bread made from cauliflower, the best part is there is no added flours, it is pretty darn creative if you ask me. You’ll find lot’s of creative ways to re-work some of your favorite recipes/foods. This is another book that I downloaded on my Kindle from the library and I am so happy I did! I don’t get to indulge in too many hobbies these days, but cooking allows me to be creative without feeling guilty that I am taking away time from my family and being able to find a book that allows me to re-envision everyday foods in a beautiful and healthful way has really has upped the creative spark in my kitchen.
Have you discovered Detoxinsta yet? Do you also have a secret (not so secret) way to stay slim and be healthy? We would love to know if you have tried any of the recipes!
