*this giveaway is now closed – check this post to see if you’re the winner – thanks for entering!*
hey guys! i thought it would be fun to have a giveaway while i’m in orlando for my work conference….so enter & enjoy! 🙂
full disclosure: i was sent both of these books, free of charge, to review. as always, all opinions expressed on the blog are my own honest thoughts.
i recently received two books by joy bauer to review. joy bauer is the nutrition expert for the today show and a #1 new york times bestselling author.
i accepted this review because i was intrigued by the books: slim and scrumptious – i’m always looking for new healthy recipes to add into our meal plan, and food cures – i agree with it’s points about eating right to lose weight and be healthier.
as always, i will only review a product on the blog if it is something i agree with and would normally buy (or want) for myself.
first up: slim & scrumptious!
this book includes recipes for over 75 delicious, healthy meals including breakfast & brunch recipes, soups & salads, entrees with and without meat, veggie side dishes, and snacks & sweets.
brad and i marked several recipes to try from the book including aj’s mac-n-cheezy, buffalo chicken chili, and upside-down pan pizza, which we made the other night!
i had pizza on our meal plan, and then when i saw this recipe, i decided it would be a fun twist on our scheduled meal.
this recipe was straightforward, pretty easy, and quick! we had enough recipes for two lunches for each of us – and we thought it was better the next day (what isn’t better the next day, right?).
i can’t wait to try more recipes from the book!
food cures is a guide to healthy eating with specific chapter focused on eating well to lose weight and look great in addition to eating to prevent cardiovascular disease, arthritis, memory, mood, irritable bowel syndrome, and many other ailments that so many people suffer from.
this book also has tons of recipes and meal plans that are tailored to each of the different sections.
i was particularly interested in the section on eating to improve mood & pms!
