Book Review: Dashing Dish by Katie Farrell

You don't have to sacrifice tasty flavor on the altar of healthy dishes. This cookbook includes 100 delicious & nutritious recipes. Most of them are gluten-free and sugar-free. Every recipe uses healthy, wholesome ingredients. Beautiful photos accompany all the recipes. I really like seeing what each dish looks like. The author offers tips on clean eating and baking & cooking techniques that can help save us time and money. She also includes Dashing Dish staples, Dashing Dish's Eating Out Guide, lists of healthy snacks, 4 steps of meal planning, tips to help you stay healthy during special holidays, and sweetener conversions.

The recipes are organized into six categories: breakfast, lunch, dinner, side dishes, snacks, and dessert. Each recipe shows estimated time, nutritional information per serving, and the author's personal note. I have tried a few recipes (Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars, Personal Thai Chicken Pizza, and Slow Cooker Italian Meatballs ) and I'm impressed. They are simple but yummy. I did tweak the recipes a little bit :).
Our family does our best to embrace clean eating but we still have a long way to go. I find Dashing Dish very helpful and encouraging. The recipes are easy to follow. With this cookbook, we can eat better, stay healthy, and enjoy a variety of dishes (including comfort foods) without guilt. To live a healthy lifestyle is not only doable but also enjoyable :)!
