Disclaimer: This giveaway is being provided with my own money because I truly love this cooking resource. Sparkpeople has no idea I’m giving away their new cookbook.
I posted my weigh in from this week last night if anyone is interested.
Things have been ROUGH round here lately. I’m going to San Francisco next weekend to hang out with Michelle, Sarah and anyone going to Foodbuzz (I’m not, just hanging out) so I’m trying to get ahead of my school work so I can enjoy myself while on the trip!
To make up for my absence lately – let’s do a giveaway shall we?
I’ve mentioned it several times, but I LOVE Sparkpeople and credit them for inspiring me to become healthy, change my life and the decision to return to school to become a Registered Dietitian.
Their cookbook came out on October 4th, and I received it on October 5th. I pre-ordered the cookbook from Amazon and have been scouring the book and trying to make as many recipes as I have been able to. I seriously LOVE this cookbook and it may be my favorite cookbook ever created.
The recipes are simple, have common ingredients and provide solutions for a variety of different situations. There are recipes for breakfasts, salads, soups, entrees, vegetarian meals, whole grains, pasta, dessert, snacks and seasoning mixes. There are recipes for slow cookers, 30 minute meals and meals for a crowd. There are common American recipes that have been remade healthier, as well as meals that are more creative and full of healthy ingredients.
I love how many recipes have been re-made from member submitted recipes on sparkrecipes.com. There are also three weeks of meal plans, tips for weight loss, tips for cooking/certain foods and spark member testimonials.
Basically, this cookbook is amazing and I want every person out there to own it!
Here are the recipes I’ve made so far:
Creamy Broccoli-Cheese soup
Slow-Cooker White Bean Chicken Chili
Slow-Cooker Turkey Sausage and Bean Stew
Slow-Cooker Rosemary Chicken Breasts
The Downies’ Honey-Ginger Salmon
Better-for-you Beef Stroganoff
I’ve also made their caramelized onions, but have no picture of it!
