Grill it, Braise It, Broil It is a creative and healthy book filled with techniques that are both easy to make, and promote a healthy lifestyle. From slow cooking to grilling to even microwaving, this book by the American Hearth Association contains hundreds of recipes and resources that inspire delicious, but guilt-free eating.
“You can trust that each of the recipes not only tastes delicious but also follows the dietary recommendations of the American Heart Association.” — Chief Science and Medical Officer, Rose Marie Robertson, M.D., FAHA, FACC
Just like all American Hearth Association cookbooks, GIBIBI is organized by cooking method and contains a variety of meal choices such as apps, snacks and desserts. Having a sweet tooth myself, I can’t wait to try the Honeyed Strawberries with Almonds or the Easy Peach Crisp (check back later for my recipe review). But the book has main dishes as well, such as Baja Fish Tacos and Summertime Stir-Fry, that look tasty and easy for any night of the work week.
Like all cookbooks that I love, the book contains useful resources that compliment the recipes. The Heart-Healthy Pantry section is one, but they’ve also added cooking tips and nutritional charts, which take each recipe to a whole new level.
With that said, this book isn’t perfect. The lack of photography in the book was a real bummer. Though there are a few pages of photo inserts in the center of the book, the photography falls really short. As a reader, pictures are part of the cookbook experience, and I really missed that when reading this one.
Overall, it’s a great resource for all cooking techniques of healthy eating. Yes, you might not get all the bells and whistles, but the book is well-worth the investment.
I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
