The New York Times best-selling author of The Fast Metabolism Diet delivers what her fans and followers crave the most: delicious, hearty recipes to boost your metabolism.
With a classic structure organized into sections for Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and Snacks, this cookbook has recipes for use on all of Haylie's programs as well as delicious, fun meals newcomers can make to eat healthy, speed up their metabolism, and lose weight. It includes trending topics like slow cooker and Instant Pot meals, and a meta-tag index for quick reference. Haylie’s messaging has always been “eat more food to lose more weight,” and this cookbook delivers the hearty, tasty food her readers have come to expect—all of the health and weight loss with none of the deprivation or sacrifice of variety or flavor.
Nutritionist Pomroy follows up her popular Fast Metabolism Diet with more appetizing recipes featuring superfoods that she argues speeds up metabolism and can help people lose weight. She urges readers to avoid "metabolism killers" (notably wheat and alcohol) and replace them with "metabolism-boosting foods" such as fresh fruits and vegetables. The dozens of enticing recipes vary in flavor and don't feel restricting; lemon-cranberry bread uses almond and coconut flours, taco lime shrimp salad is served with spelt tortillas, and beef lo mein features brown rice vermicelli noodles. There are also recipes that satisfy rich cravings, such as crab-stuffed bell peppers with safflower mayonnaise, white chicken chili (for which the sour cream is made from cashews), and mushroom soup thickened with a coconut cream. Some readers might forgo options that prioritize healthiness over flavor, such as a cauliflower mash breakfast bowl or crunchy broccoli and apple chicken salad, but they will appreciate much of the helpful advice (a 30-Day meal plan, for example). This is a great resource for readers who want to make healthier food choices but don't want to be stuck with bland meals.
