Busy Mom? Need Inspiration? Check Out The Wellness Mama Cookbook.
When I first started eating healthier and cooking for my family I tried to keep it really, really simple because I didn’t want to get too overwhelmed with a bunch of new recipes. I’m very pragmatic and figured that as long as we’re eating healthy foods, flavor diversity and experimenting doesn’t matter that much. One example: I serve yogurt every single day for breakfast. I love our homemade yogurt, but it’s been so exciting to try some fun alternatives from The Wellness Mama Cookbook like Chai Coconut Granola, Apple Cinnamon Muffins, and Berry Chia Breakfast Crisp with my girls.
The Wellness Mama Cookbook inspired me to diversify my recipe repertoire and try recipes I had never even considered making before: Mississippi Pot Roast, French Grated Carrot Salad, Avocado and Grapefruit Salad, Mongolian Beef, Sweet Potato Casserole, delicious, healthy dressings…I could go on. And her chocolate chip cookie recipe is by far, the best gluten free cookie recipe we have ever tried.
I love knowing that a fellow busy mama wrote this book because, like me, she really cared deeply enough about her family’s health and the next generation. I know The Wellness Mama Cookbook comes from one mama to another, with love.
From The Wellness Mama Cookbook:
With six kids, a popular blog, and no free time, Katie, creator of the incredibly popular Wellness Mama website, knows firsthand how difficult it is to cook a healthy, homemade dinner every night. Faced with her own health challenges, and also concerned about the frightening statistics on the future health of her children’s generation, Katie began to evaluate the foods she was eating and feeding to her family.
She became determined to find a way to create and serve meals that were wholesome, easy to prepare, budget-friendly, and family approved. The Wellness Mama Cookbook is a compilation of all that she has learned, with 200 simple, delicious recipes using all-natural ingredients; meal plans; time-saving tips; and advice that will take the guesswork out of dinner.
The recipes and practical advice Katie offers will help you eliminate processed foods and move toward more healthy, home-cooked meals that are easily prepared—most in thirty minutes or less. The recipes focus on whole foods that are free of grains and refined sugars and without harmful fats, but are still delicious and full of flavor. With a variety of slow-cooker and one-pot meals, light lunches, dinners, and desserts, you’ll be eating better in every way in no time at all.
Recipes include Sesame Chicken with Sugar Snap Peas, Sweet Potato Crusted Quiche Lorraine, Beef and Zucchini Stir Fry, and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies, as well as recipes for bone broths, fermented foods, and super food drinks and smoothies. Katie also shares pantry-stocking advice, two weeks of meal plans for at home and on-the-go, shopping lists, and more. This is the ultimate cookbook that readers need to incorporate healthy eating knowledge into their daily practices.
Most of the recipes in the cookbook come together in 30 minutes or less. There’s plenty of slow-cooker, Instant Pot, and one-pot meals recipes that just make life simpler without compromise. There are over 100 new recipes in the cookbook, plus some favorites from the blog.
