If you are in this predicament---you have to prepare a surprise meal for your family but have no clue about how to prepare it or what does the ingredients look like, then this book is for you. Also if your family believes in eating outside most days of the week, then this book is for you and your family.
I would like to review the book in two parts…first I will list out the pros of the book:
100 Days of Real Food Recipes gives basic information about the food you eat. It mentions why highly processed food is bad for you and why one should opt for whole foods. The author provides several recipes, and most of them could even become a favorite of kids (and make them less fussy eaters).
Now the cons of the book:
Though the recipes are great and simple, I feel it is not everybody’s cup of tea. It is particularly hard for those who have some type of food allergy or those whose family members might have a food allergy, any dietary challenges, etc. This book is also not useful for those who have been trying to decipher what goes into preparing the food that you get from the supermarket.
Besides the above cons, my main grouse with the book is that I did not learn anything new from it. Maybe it’s just me and others have benefitted a great deal. Second, the text could have been sharper if it went through the hands of a professional editor. Lisa should have known that there is a lot of difference in all together and altogether and book surely needed some more commas.
But overall a useful book containing a lot of information for a person who wants to undergo a dietary overhaul. Sad that it did not work for me.
