Giveaway - Nourish Cookbook

 Nourish Cookbook Cover

I don't think I have ever had a giveaway that I was so excited about.

I know many of you are trying to eat more healthful diet. Sometimes it is your own choice, sometimes because of a health crisis.

Several years ago, Esther Yoder's four year old daughter began having seizures. After medication failed to give good results, their doctor recommended they try a Low Glycemic Index Diet.

The past several years has been an adventure as Esther sought to find food that her daughter could eat on her very strict diet. With the help their dietician, Esther creatively adapted recipes that her child could enjoy. Today, her daughter is seizure and medicine free!

But Esther didn't stop there. With the goal of helping other cooks who are faced with the daunting task of completely revamping their diet, Esther compiled her recipes into a cookbook and Nourish - Recipes for Delicious, Low Carb, Sugar Free Meals was born.



I expected this cookbook to be nice, but I was still surprised by just how nice! Nourish is beautiful, with many photographs. The pictures I tried to take of this book to not give it justice. Each recipe also includes the nutritional facts. Esther shares lots of tips through the book as well as her personal experiences in adapting a strict diet for a child. The cookbook is a joy to flip through. Best of all, every recipe I have tried in the book has been tasty! And I don't even need to eat a low glycemic diet!

Esther wrote the book for other epileptic patients, but many others would benefit from the book. Diabetics, THM fans, and anyone who is trying to decrease their sugar and carbs will enjoy Nourish.

I was amazed at the variety of recipes in the cookbook. Whether you are faced with a birthday party, a school snack, or a family cookout - this book will give you ideas to make your event a success.

Here is a glimpse into the sections of Nourish.



Beverages, Hors D'Oeuveres and Snacks include cheese ball, snack mixes, and all sorts of yummy drinks like mochaccino and southern iced tea.



In Breakfast and Breads you'll find omelets, coffee cake, and almond meal pancakes.

 

Soups and Salads had me drooling with chicken bacon chowder and ranch chicken fajita salad. There is even finger jello for children.



Paninis, Quesadillas, and Wraps gives great ideas for quick meals.



Main Dishes and Sides has some great ideas for using the grill and the slow cooker plus classics such as barbecued chicken and Mexican lasagna.



Bake Shop Desserts is the section that blew me away. Esther really got creative here. With no sugar and no flour, she serves up chocolate chip cookies, brownie trifle, vanilla pudding, mocha cheesecake, and more. Even several kinds of frosting and chocolate glaze to put the finishing touches on your dessert.



Esther wraps up her cookbook with a Home Pantry section. I'm eager to try her sugar-free versions of ketchup and salsa this summer. She also includes marinade and some seasoning mixes in this section.

I am so excited to share Nourish with you, thanks to Esther's generosity. I hope that there is someone out there to whom this book can be a lifesaver (maybe literally).

To enter this giveaway, go to the Nourish Cookbook site and take a look around OR go to BookCentra and read a preview from the cookbook.
