Cook once eat all weekEating healthy, whole foods is important to me. But Iā€™m also a busy mom of two little ones who runs her own business. When I come across a resource that makes meals both easy and delicious, I get very excited!

Recently I started cooking from ā€œCook Once Eat All Weekā€ by Cassy Joy Garcia. I am two weeks into the meal plans and am very impressed. The book is based off of the concept that preparing components of a meal in advance and assembling the dish the day of will give you a fresh, quick meal.

 

What I Love About This Book

  • There are 26 weeks of meal plans. That's 6 months of delicious meals!
  • All the recipes are gluten free and real food based (modifications are available for those on dairy-free, grain-free, or low-carb diets).
  • Each week has a full shopping lists. 
  • Following the instructions on the prep day gets you ready to quickly prepare hot meals throughout the week.   

 

The Books Nutritional Approach

  • Real, nutrient-dense foods are chosen over processed, refined foods.
  • Nourishing fats replace highly processed oils.
  • Organic produce and quality proteins are preferred when possible.
  • Balanced meals include protein, vegetables, and healthy starches.
  • Eat what works best for your body!

 

Recipes That We Have Enjoyed
