Bonfitto shares dozens of her real-life dishes with you. The recipes aren't fancy, and the cooking techniques are easy to master. She's worked to keep them low-carb, low-gluten, and low-dairy (without sacrificing taste), as this combination works well for weight loss and wellness. You'll find delicious options for every meal of the day! Whip up dinner with Energy Boost Salad, Cauliflower Chickpea Curry, or Zucchini Noodles with Ultimate Tomato Sauce. Create easy, decadent snacks with options like Chocolate Banana Nut Ice Cream or Goat Cheese and Pecan Bites. Thirsty? This book also includes recipes for drinks, including a Scarlett Mocktail or Green Boost Smoothie. Nestled between the recipes, you'll get pages of solid information about which ingredients to use in your recipes. Most importantly, you'll learn why certain foods can help you cut cravings, improve digestion, regulate blood sugar, and make you feel lighter, more energized, and vital. This book will change mealtime and snack time, adding new and exciting cuisine to your regular lineup of weekly meals. It may even inspire you to try your own recipes! Feed yourself a little bit better today, so you can feel like your best self tomorrow!
