This book was a timely selection for me. Having just finished with several layers of testing for my cookbook, I have to tell you that I have been struggling in the weight department. I have been trying to take some practical measures mostly to keep healthy and the great thing is the book ratifies some of my thoughts.
It is a relatively easy read and I took it along when we traveled – Thank you Kindle!!! There are 92 mostly common sense lessons, the ones that resonate most with me are moderation, eat what you like in small doses and to count one’s tasting calories. Ok, I listened to the bit on alcohol calories as well. That is unfortunately one of my downfalls. There are a chockful of interesting recipes including about 8 great ideas for interesting roast chickens, and an Asian tomato soup recipe that I cannot wait to try. I thing that the most enlightening part of this entire book is to note that the problems of excesses are certainly not unique when working with food and the key to staying healthy and balancing really becomes a part of balance.
I think, I shall enjoy this book beyond the basic read, mostly for some of the recipes and will recommend this to anyone who is looking for a common sense approach to controlling excessive eating in the kitchen.
So tell me, do y ou have any kitchen vices? Or are you a Smart Chef who has learnt how to stay slim?
