Healthiest Meals on Earth:
The Surprising, Unbiased Truth About What Meals to Eat and Why
by Jonny Bowden
The first cookbook from best-selling author Jonny Bowden!
Jonny Bowden's ‘The Healthiest Meals on Earth’ contains recipes for more than sixty dishes and drinks that use nutritious and healthy cooking methods. Forty of these dishes will combine to create ten different "poly-meals", specially crafted meals that contain key nutrients found to promote long-term health. They include Sweet and Thai Spicy Shrimp and Fruits, Persian Chicken with Autumnal Accompaniments, and the "iron booster" of Tender Calf's Liver and Sweet Beets. A "Healthiest Holiday Meal" features Citrus Stuffed Turkey, Zippy Fruit Salsa, and Sweet Potato Pie. The poly-meals are designed to be eaten three-to-five times a week.
Another ten recipes are not part of the poly-meal structure; instead they are one-pot meals that include Slow-Cooker Chicken Curry, Miso Bean Soup, and Venison Stew. A chapter on drinks will include nutritious smoothies, so-called "green drinks", and others. Jonny will provide healthy cooking tips throughout the book, as well as an analysis of the foods in each recipe. Side dishes, such as Cold Strawberry Soup and Veggie Slaw with Flax Oil, and desserts, such as Raw Chocolate Fondue, are also featured.
This book pairs well with Bowden's successful 150 Healthiest Foods, and can even be used as a companion cookbook.
After being glued to his book: The 150 Healthiest Foods On Earth, I went ahead and ordered The Healthiest Meals on Earth.
Having made a huge change in my own personal diet 3 years ago(after reading Ultrametabolism), after reading Jonny's 150 Healthiest Foods On Earth helped me tweak my diet that much more. But the problem at home has been that my wife doesn't know what to cook for me.
This book has recipies for incredible meals based on a solid foundation of real nutrition. Eating with your health goals in mind, you get meals power packed with healthful nutrients that are very appealing visually and pleasing to the olfactory senses (smell).
It's not just a recipe book, but an explanation of the foods and spices that make up the meal. There are some wonderful charts in the book that cross reference various foods with their healthful benefits. He does the same for healthful oils.
If you are big into nutrition, this and his "150 healthiest foods" book are essential for your library. Whether you are eating because you want to just be healthy or you have a specific condition you want to target with the proper nutrition, this book is great. The bottom line: Jonny Bowden's nutritional advice just makes sense!
