Mealleaniyumm (pronounced similar to "millenium") is an excellent book on healthy eating habits for the kosher or not person! It is packed with 800 recipes, all delicious AND nutritious.
Kosher foods are foods permitted to be eaten by the Jewish dietary
law as described in the Bible. Forbidden foods include pork, wild
game, horse, shellfish, fish without scales (such as eels), snakes,
camels, hippos, bears and fermented drinks (with the exception of
wine). Also, dairy products and meats must not come into contact.
Therefore, if you are craving a turkey and cheddar sandwich, you
won't be able to eat it!
What I enjoyed most was that there was a nutritional analysis for
each recipe. There were also tips on how to cut fat and add fiber to
recipes. And if you are a vegetarian, fear not, there are numerous
recipes for you in here as well!
This cookbook contains recipes with easy-to-read instructions, as
well as easy-to-find ingredients. There are tips on how to save time,
a substitution guide, and recipe variations. She shows us how to read
a label, and how to eat healthier. She suggests some pantry staples,
an herb guide, ideas on how to cut fat and much more!
Excellent recipes to try are: Oven-Roasted Vegetables, Terrific Tofu
Stir-Fry, Luscious Lemon Squares, Jumble Berry Crisp, Skinny Potato
Skins and Herbed Lemon Chicken Breasts with Mushrooms.
This is a fabulous book. With more than 800 recipes, healthy eating
tips, with easy-to-read instructions, this book is an excellent
addition to anyone's library!
