Fresh reviews - Good and Easy Eats

Good and Easy Eats is the latest recipe ebook by my friend Kim Wilson, who you may remember from her guest post on Craving Fresh last year about going gluten-free.

Kim had to radically rethink her family's diet in 1998, when her husband was diagnosed with Meneire's disease. By changing to a whole foods, plant-based diet, the Wilsons have seen incredible healing, rejuvination and weight-loss.

Kim has written numerous recipe books based on what she's learned. Her latest ebook Good and Easy Eats is full of gluten-free, vegan recipes that will appeal to the whole family.

Recipes for the whole family
Kim has included enough recipes to feed a family something different for breakfast, lunch, snacks, dinners and dessert every day of the week.

Breakfast: Kim's breakfast recipes are simple and tasty, including smoothies, muesli, hot cereal, pancakes and muffins.

Lunch: You'll definitely eat more vegetables if you follow Kim's lunch meal plan, which includes recipes for seasonal salads and dressings, soups, salad pockets, hummus and veggies, beans and rice and burritos.

Snacks: These are the kinds of snacks you'll be encouraging your kids to eat more of - popcorn, fruit with nutbutter, chocolate meltaways, nut-stuffed dates, trail mix, fruit nut balls, carob bars and fresh vegetable juice.

Dinner: Kim's dinner recipes are all whole food, vegan and gluten-free versions of standard meals such as pizza, stir-fries, curries, pasta, soups and stews, and Mexican fiestas.

Desserts: Healthy sugar-free versions of cookies, brownies, cakes, strawberry shortcake with diary-free whipped topping, apple crisp, pumpkin pie and ice cream.

Recipes free of common allergens and problematic foods
If you're dealing with allergies and food intolerances in your family, Good and Easy Eats will be so helfpul as its recipes exclude some of the most common allergens - eggs, gluten, wheat, soy and dairy.
  • Dairy-free recipes such as banana milk, nut milk, Kim's home-made "sour cream", macaroni and "cheese", whipped "cream", ice cream.
  • Egg-free recipes featuring ground flax instead.
  • Gluten-free recipes for muesli, pancakes, waffles, muffins, lentil cakes, biscuits and gravy, pizza, pastry, bread sticks and more.

Food preparation
One thing I love about this book is that Kim has taken the time to explain proper food preparation.

Anyone cutting food groups out of their diet needs to ensure the foods they are still eating are properly prepared to extract maximum nutrition. Kim has done that, teaching how to soak foods like nuts, seeds, rice and beans to break down their anti-nutrients and release their goodness.

Buying a copy of  Good and Easy Eats also gives you access to these extras:
  • 1 hour podcast of Kim’s Introduction to Wholesome Eating class
  • Video of Kim preparing one of her family’s favourite staple recipes
  • Kim’s exclusive menu planning system

Good and Easy Eats costs just USD$4.99, which I think is really good value.
