Moving onto the second day of our week long cookbook giveaway we have another one of my new favorites, The Garden of Eating. This book really is much more than a cookbook, as you will discover just by thumbing through all 581 pages.
It would be easy for me to simply say, this is a great book for dairy-free and gluten-free dieters, but that would cut out too many other people whom this book and cookbook could help. If health and nutrition is of importance to you and your family, then The Garden of Eating should be on your wish list. The author, Chef Rachel Albert-Matesz (aka The Healthy Cooking Coach), calls her approach "a produce-dominated diet." I like to call it a Paleo-friendly diet or a whole foods diet to the extreme.
But have no fear, the recipes are not only healthy, they are also delicious … as you can see from the sample recipe for Honey-Mustard Chicken with Ginger. Honestly, this is one book that will remain in my collection until it is so tattered with dog-eared pages and splattered with ingredients, that I have to get a new copy. Speaking of new copies, who would like to win one?
