Halfway homemade : meals in a jiffy / Parrish Ritchie.

Halfway homemade : meals in a jiffy / Parrish Ritchie.
Just because a recipe calls for premade ingredients doesn't mean it can't create a beautiful dish, and just because a dish is beautiful doesn't mean it's hard to make. Is it cheating to start a meal with store-bought biscuit dough, rotisserie chicken, and a bag of frozen veggies? Does it matter when the results are delicious mini chicken pot pies? [...] In Halfway Homemade, Parrish Ritchie proves that in 30 minutes you can have a dinner -- or dessert -- on the table that everyone in the family will love. -- From back cover.

Real food heals : eat to feel younger + stronger every day / Seamus Mullen with Genevieve Ko.
Healthy cooking reinvented by top chef Seamus Mullen, with over 125 Paleo-inspired recipes designed to revitalize your health every day--~Healthy cooking reinvented by top chef Seamus Mullen, with over 125 Paleo-inspired recipes designed to revitalize your health every day. In the high-end food world, healthy cooking has long been taboo. But as one of the only high-profile chefs today guided by the understanding that the food we eat has a deep impact on our health, Seamus Mullen has rewritten the old rule that healthy can't be delicious. Seamus's powerful transformation came out of his own health crisis--after a near-death experience brought on by autoimmune disease he'd struggled with for years, he radically changed the way he cooked, both at his restaurants and at home. As a result, the biomarkers of disease disappeared and the constant trips to the ER he experienced while he was sick have come to an end. But what Seamus has been surprised to discover is that this new way of eating--dishes starring real, whole foods such as vegetables and fruits, meats used as garnishes, whole grains, fermented foods, and no refined sugar or gluten--has not only controlled his disease but has also made his body feel younger, stronger, and more energized every day. It is his mission to share his brand of cooking with readers everywhere to inspire them to shift their diets and truly redefine what healthy eating can and should be. A powerful manifesto with Seamus's moving journey at its heart, Real Food Heals is packed with 125 easy-to-prepare, Paleo-inspired, and nourishing recipes packed with delicious whole food ingredients, including Kefir Scrambled Eggs with Grated Garlic; Nori Rolls with Olive Oil, Tuna, Avocado, and Sprouts; and Fig Almond Cacao Nib bars. Complete with a 21-day jump-start meal plan, this unique cookbook will help everyone prepare healthy, irresistible food with big flavors every day and put them on the path to total wellness--

Toss your own salad : the meatless cookbook with burgers, bolognese, and balls / Eddie McNamara ; food photography by April Rankin ; illustrations by Josh Lord ; lettering by Johah Ellis.
Takeout food every night is great...for leaving you broke, bloated and praying for a national healthcare plan to deal with your fat ass self. Eddie McNamara wants to show you how to stop being a takeout junkie or a Gordon Ramsay wannabe who spends years learning complex knife skills you don't need. He also wants to show you how to pump up the flavor without resorting to using meat because – really - who needs to eat more meat? As Eddie puts it, 'Any schmuck can put bacon on something to make it delicious.' He wanted to show people how easy it was to cook delicious meatless meals for themselves rather than gorging more fat and salt on a daily basis than you'd see in a bucket of KFC. He also wanted to show people that you don't have to be Warren Buffett to eat well. As he puts it 'Brokesters have cooked filling plant-based food since long before Mark Bittman moved to Berkeley in search of a perfectly ripe avocado.' --Amazon.com.
