30-Minute Meals 2

by Rachael Ray

A Must Have Cookbook.
This book, like many others, is often mistaken as a "I hate to cook!" book, when in fact it is more of a "I have no time to cook!" book. Cooking is one of my favorite passions, however working 50 hours a week really doesn't lend well to cooking elaborate meals. Rachael Ray provides a menu-style book that is both cost-effective and does not require unusual ingredients that are hard to find. The meals are easy and always 'homestyle' delicious. The only drawback, as many have pointed out, is that her deserts leave a lot to be desired. But it IS geared towards getting a meal done in 30 minutes, and as mentioned, I usually don't have time to make creme brulee.

This is a great book that contains wonderful ideals for quick, easy, healthy meals. Although the recipes have consistently taken me more than 30-minutes to prepare, I have never been disappointed with one yet. I admittedly don't like to cook, and find it easy to avoid cooking altogether by eating unhealthy fast-food, but this book has definitely helped me avoid the temptations of easy, low-prep., unhealthy eating that has become the staple of my diet. This book will definitely make it easier to make healthy eating more consistent, but I'm convinced that the only way to really stick to any diet is to make it part of your routine by making it a habit. A friend of mine who is a clinical dietitian gave me an amazing book entitled The Power of Habit. It explains how our eating (when we eat, what we eat, and how much we eat) is all habit. It teaches you how to change your eating habits to make healthy eating a permanent, automatic part of your lifestyle. 30-Minute Meals 2 gives you great, easy, low-hassle recipes, and The Power of Habit teaches you how to stick to them. I highly recommend both books.
