bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Great for those new to clean eatingFebruary 16, 2015bookwomanjoanOak Harbor, WAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We know we are supposed to be healthy eaters. But, what about the taste? Where is the flavor? And why does eating healthy seem so hard?
I am impressed with Farrell. She wanted to show that we can have the flavor, still be healthy, and have simple recipes. She first set up a website, Dashingdish.com. Now she has produced this book.
Farrell explains clean eating. It's a lifestyle approach to eating that incorporates whole foods that have not been altered or processed, and that have no chemicals or harmful preservatives added. She has tried to keep the recipes in this book simple, quick, and containing a few basic ingredients.
Everything I have made from this book has been delicious. I really like her use of old-fashioned oats, non-fat Greek yogurt, almond milk and quinoa. Those are items I always have in the house, so I was ready to make many of her recipes without buying unusual foods. I was a little hesitant about her use of artificial sweeteners, but she recommends Stevia and some natural ones.
There is only one change I have made to her recipes. I have a diabetic in the house and I've become used to sweets being not as sweet. So I started out adding only half of the recommended amount of sweetener. I do that for all recipes, in general, and it worked with these too. The sweetness is still there but it does not mask the flavors of the other ingredients. The Cookie Dough Overnight Oatmeal is my favorite so far and was a hit. The Slow Cooker Sweet and Sour Chicken is wonderful. I'm waiting for a special occasion to make the Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies.
I appreciate that Farrell has included the nutrition information for each recipe. She has also included a pantry list so we'll have the necessary ingredients on hand. And there are tips and tricks for baking and cooking that will save time and money.
If you have been wanting to make the transition to clean eating, a healthier approach to cooking and baking, this is a great book to get you started. Farrell gives some great suggestions for substitution clean ingredients for popular yet unhealthy foods. She also has peanut and dairy free recipes for those with allergies.
Get this book and get going on a healthy approach to cooking and baking.

A PENNY FOR MY THOUGHTS:
Having recently changed my lifestyle to include more clean eating, I was thrilled to find Katie Farrells appealing new cookbook. Not knowing the author nor her infamous Dashing Dish blog, I was pleased to learn her book is a combination of helping women find their identity in God and ending misconceptions about healthy eating. I so appreciate the healthy alternatives/ possibilities if desired (gluten-free, sugar-free, oat flour) while not compromising taste. With recipes for all meals (breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and of course, dessert), pictures of each recipe, helpful, healthy tips and a personal note for each recipe, I truly enjoyed this book. I have to admit thoughthe Cake-Batter Protein Shake and the Peanut Butter Protein Cookies were my favorites. Seriously, who knew healthy could taste so good?
