Yes, I have ANOTHER amazing cookbook to add to your collection of books. But guess what? This one isn’t all strict paleo, because well, I know some of you aren’t paleo 100% of the time. Some of you are vegetarian, some of you eat paleo but with some dairy, some of you eat rice, and some of you just dabble. So today I’m sharing a delicious new cookbook that is full of healthy, quick meals to help keep you on track throughout the week!
Skinnytaste Fast and Slow: Knockout Quick-Fix and Slow Cooker Recipes is a hardcover book that is filled with recipes you can make in under 30 minutes or recipes you can put in the slow cooker to have when you get home from work! The book starts off with tips for staying on track during a busy life. It gives details of creating a plan, cooking in season, packing the pantry and filling the fridge and freezer so that you’re always ready to create a meal for you and your family!
Gina Homolka and Heather Jones in Skinnytaste Fast and Slow also give you some slow cooker secrets and fast cooking basics like searing food or creating a mental game plan. They simply help you prepare yourself so you’re always ready to make some sort of fast or slow recipe, no matter what day it is! They even have a month of meal plans in the book to help you get started while you get the hang of it!
In the book, you’ll find that section is divided into fast recipes and slow recipes. And here’s what kind of sections you’ll find:
- Healthy Mornings
- Chiles, Soup, and Stews
- One Bowl Meals
- Noodles, Squashta, Pasta, and Sauce
- Taco Night
- Poultry Mains
- Meat Lovers Mains
