The only book you'll need to put amazing, surprisingly healthy meals on the table every weeknight (and lunch the next day) by bestselling cookbook author, Gwyneth Paltrow.
Gwyneth's fans have been begging her to write a cookbook that will help them get healthy, yet wonderfully delicious meals on the table during hectic weeknights. Well, she listened and she is sharing over 125 recipes that can be made in under 30 minutes that are surprisingly tasty even though they have little or no sugar, are low in fat, and many with no gluten.
They will be of the same quality as those in It's All Good, but can be pulled together in the time it would take to call for a takeaway. And because every family needs some pasta or pizza now and then, Gwyneth will include recipes for easy takes on those favorites too!
Everyone knows that takeaway and restaurant meals can contain large amounts of fat and sugar, and can be made with less than 'clean' ingredients, so here is the solution to making sure you and your family eat a healthy, yet delicious meal every night of the week. And, since it is so much healthier and economical to bring lunch to work and school, there will be a special section on 'Lunchbox ideas' made from dinner leftovers and easy-to-throw-together lunches!
Continuing her restorative eating approach, actress and cookbook author Paltrow (It's All Good) presents a collection of 125 favorite recipes for "the chronically busy." Recipes have a family focus and feature kid-friendly, healthy breakfast dishes such as almond-orange or chocolate cinnamon overnight oats and a ginger chia pudding. "Pick-Me-Ups" include prepare-ahead chicken or shrimp chopped salads, wraps, and vegetable-rich Mexican and Thai style noodle pots. Main dishes include polentas and pasta with rapini or curry lime roasted cauliflower, and there are plentiful seafood dishes. For "Something Sweet," choose fruited shakes or coconut-heavy confections such as pudding, key lime tarts, and cookies. Paltrow's trick for uncomplicated, delicious meal-making is her list of go-to pantry basics from specialty food shops: Asian sauces and pastes, a spectrum of vinegars and oils, gluten-free whole grains, and other items such as kuzu root, bonito flakes, hemp seeds, and coconut sugar. Not all the recipes are quick to assemble, but they are "approachable for cooks with any lifestyle and any skill level," making it easy to eat well and mindfully. Paltrow's recipes offer refreshing ways for home cooks to regain balance in their lives and on their plates in face of today's on-the-go lifestyle.
