one thing I do not like is there are no pictures at all for any …
I got this cookbook because my boyfriend and I are trying to eat healthier and are running out of ideas.. baked chicken with veggies get old obviously haha! But, one thing I do not like is there are no pictures at all for any of the recipes. I like to be able to get an idea of what I am actually making.. so that’s a bummer. Another thing, I know I am not a health guru like some are but I try and this book was kind of hard to follow. I hadn’t heard of a lot of the ingredients so I had to google what they were to even understand what I was going to be trying to make. I do not live off fast food and I love cooking a lot so this was kind of a bummer! I don’t know, maybe I need to order “How to eat healthy for idiots” instead! If you don’t need pictures and you can decipher plants from sea food then maybe this is the cook book for you!
Great meals with less leftovers.
My husband works nights so that leaves my daughter and I to eat meals together. I have to cook healthy meals for her since she is into athletics. It is hard to cook for two people without a lot of leftovers.
Love this Cookbook!
I love this cookbook. It is just my husband and me now as the kids are grown and out of the house. We have tried several recipes in this book and all have been delicious. Plus very little, if any, leftovers. I used to make such large quantities and then we would “eat on it” for days, and I would usually end up throwing it out. These recipes are easy, economical and delicious. Thank you for a cookbook like this.
Worth the buy!!
So far I’ve loved almost everything I’ve cooked. I love how organized this book is and how helpful with suggested foods to pair it is. I also love that even though it’s “for 2” it makes larger portions so since we eat a lot, that’s nice. Or if we eat light it’s nice for lunch the next day!
This book was everything that I needed it is such a struggle to try to become a great cook for 2 people when you have no idea where to start. This book open my eyes and showed me the best way to not only save money when it comes to cooking but the best way to prepare the best food possible.
Amazing recipes and tons of helpful tips on cooking for two. This cookbook has it all, from ways to save time and money by planning your meals ahead. Never go to the grocery store without having your meal plan and shopping list with you organizing a weekly meal plan will save you money. I like how this cookbook explains the different ways to cook your meals and make them more healthy. 10 different ways from baking to stir frying each one is explained even Blanching which I had never heard of.
Easy to use cookbook for healthy cooking
Healthy Cookbook for Two is an easy to read instruction manual for those looking to incorporate into their lives a more healthful approach to cooking. Not only are the portions truly meant for two, but it offers nutritional information, per serving, such as calories, fats, carbs and more at the end of the dish. Each recipe also has a guide to help the reader/cook quickly determine if a dish is gluten free, dairy free, able to be made ahead of time, and if it can be made in a single pot. I also like the beginning chapters that help the reader learn more than just healthy recipes. The author provides healthy alternatives to traditional cooking staples, as well as a breakdown of healthier cooking methods, and healthy staples to keep on hand. The recipes themselves are easy to follow, don’t require training as a chef to prepare, and won’t break the budge when it comes to buying ingredients. This book is an excellent choice for someone beginning his or her transition into healthier cooking.
Worth every penny!
If you don’t have a big family to cook for and you want to stay healthy, then this cookbook is for you! My husband and I don’t have any children yet so I usually only have to cook for the two of us. I tend to choose the fattening, greasiest food that I can find to cook because that is what I know how to cook. Not anymore, with this cookbook I am back on track and doing much better. The great thing about it is that it tells you what you need to buy to cook everything in the book. That made the book so much better! The recipes in this book show you important nutritional facts such as calories, fat, carbohydrates, sugar, and more. It even has suggestions on what to prepare for dessert. Dessert is a big deal for us. I didn’t pay for this book but even if I did, the review wouldn’t change.
No more food going from the fridge to the trash!!!
My husband and I can never seem to cook enough for just the 2 of us, we always end up with TONS of leftovers, and then they go bad and we throw them away. I can’t stand to see money going into the trashcan like that. So this is a gem of a find for me. It has so many recipes to choose from, and it even suggest what to buy and have on hand to be able to make the recipes. I am very picky, so most recipes contain ingredients that I don’t eat, so I leave them out, or if large enough pick them out when I eat, I have done that all my life, I am a very picky eater. My husband enjoyed the recipes I have made so far, and no more food going from the fridge to the trash!!!
I love how the recipes can be doubled very easily
Some amazingly delicious recipes! I love how the recipes can be doubled very easily. These come in so handy especially when the kids are gone to grandmas for the weekend. The best part is the majority of all these recipes are ingredients you all ready have at home. So no need for a special trip to the supermarket. It also has some recipes that are gluten free, dairy free, 30 minute, and one-pot recipes. I love the Sesame veggie stir fry. I loved the ideas of freezing left overs for later. I do that already 🙂 Also it talks about planning ahead. That helps so much to keep on a healthy track. To plan around events, when kids are not home, if your gonna be out for the night. Dealing with leftovers. Also gives you some healthy cooking techniques. Im so glad I got this book to review. I got this book free. I have put a few of these recipes in routine ones:)
