Most Helpful Customer Reviews
After hearing Mark Hyman talk about this new cookbook on the Dr. Oz show, I was excited that I had the opportunity to look at a preview copy from Netgalley. (Thank you Netgalley and Little, Brown and Company). Dr. Hyman took me through all the latest information about the health benefits of fat. At times, keeping up with what is considered good these days almost seems like a full-time job, so it’s nice when someone pulls everything together. He gives recommendations for what should definitely be tossed from the fridge and pantry, and what we can keep. Then he adds in new products, some I have not heard of, and lets the us know how to put it all together. The plan is for 21 days. After that, some things can be added back in. This part seems to me like a typical jump-start to most diets. And if you have given up things like butter in the past—let me tell you—you will be drooling when you see some of the recipes. There are sections for smoothies, eggs and breakfasts, salads, soups, vegetables, seafood, poultry, beef and lamb, bread and deserts, condiments, sauces and seasonings. Here is a small sampling of recipes. I’m sure many of them will be familiar to you: mixed berry coconut smoothie; omega-3 green smoothie; peachy green smoothie; chocolate raspberry smoothie; slow fried eggs with onions and basil; poached eggs with hollandaise; Italian breakfast scramble; spicy egg scramble with tomato and avocado; garlicky beef and spinach frittata; Southwestern tofu scramble walnut pancakes with blueberries; guacamole; deviled eggs; herb-roasted almonds; veggie bone broth; summer bounty vegetable stew; hearty lentil and mushroom soup; braised collard greens; garlic steamed broccoli rabe; cauliflower rice with scallions; lemon-baked sole with stewed summer squash; shrimp scampi; shredded chicken; chicken cacciatore; turkey burgers with peppers and onions; spaghetti and meatballs with tomato sauce; meatloaf with Italian seasonings; pot roast; shepherds pie; Caribbean lamb stew; spiced sweet potato quick bead; chocolate-pistachio fudge; chocolate truffles; ghee; mayonnaise; green olive tapenade and chimichurri.
