The Chia Cookbook: Inventive, Delicious Recipes Featuring Nature's Superfood by Janie Hoffman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this recipe book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I consider myself a healthy eater and I like cooking with ingredients which promote and improve health. I never had the opportunity to taste or cook with Chia and knew nothing about this super food. I was surprised to read that one little seed contains such powerful nutrients. Each seed contains protein, fiber, omega-3 and so much more. Chia is a tropical or subtropical crop and comes from Mexico, Central and South America, or Australia. Luckily, it is available in most local grocery stores in bags or in bulk.
Right from the beginning of the book, I wanted to try this wonder of nature. I found Chia at my local Bulk Barn and tried a few smoothy recipes... all were very delicious.
The instructions are easy to follow and the little facts about the food are useful. I would have like to see more pictures in the book. The ones provided with the recipes were very beautiful.
If you care about what you eat and are seeking food that are beneficial to your health; I recommend that you get a copy of this book when it comes to your local bookstore on September 30, 2014.
