Omg the best recipe book for those who love to relish healthy delicious food which can be made with beautiful fresh ingredients and be prepared so fast in the modern everyday kitchen 😍😍 I absolutely recommend this one !!!
If you don't already have a food processor and a blender , you better go buy them before you even think about getting this book. There are tons of offers on food processor and blenders that come as a bundle, so don't go cheap. Remember the old latin saying "caveat emptor" ! Regarding the book: First of all, as soon as you open the book you have three choices you're presented with: Be healthy (in case you eat fast food and miss on those delicious nutrients such as minerals and vitamins), be lean (lose weight with low caloric foods which are also low in fat), and be fit (carb and protein loading for a crazy day). As a gym addict myself, I find it incredible that I'm able to cook and feel the benefits of each section. I eat from the "LEAN" section when I have HIIT day, and from the "FIT" when I have my resistance training day. When I'm off, I always eat from the "HEALTHY" section. Second of all, even if you go to the gym or not, knowing how to cook these (and combining them with the other books from Gordon Ramsay, such as Ultimate Cookery Course) will turn you into a chef with a plethora of knowledge, taking out the excuse "I don't know what to eat". In conclusion, get the book. Plenty of amazing recipes, all of them have the full nutritional information added in the corner of the page, and it helps to discipline yourself away from those instant noodle soup, and become a human being. Cheers!
I enjoy cooking so this book is ideal for me. If you like routine, you can build a set menu for the week, but it’s not laid out like that and you may be disappointed.
I didn’t find the sample that appealing but as the Kindle edition was at such a low price, I gave it a go. Very impressed with it and can’t wait to get started. I had been trying to adapt recipes from my fav chefs which is a faff and now I don’t have to go to all that trouble.
The approach to healthy eating is very down to earth and sensible.
All recipes have calorie counts and I don’t ever recall a book like this with so many side dish options.
Like the fact that what would be normally termed the ‘diet’ recipes is simply called ‘lean’ and he sometimes suggests additions if you’re not watching the calories too closely.
I recently embarked on intermittent fasting but was really disheartened about many of the kinds of "diet recipes" that are touted as the way to lose weight. They are the main reason nobody sticks to a diet and they invariably fail because nobody wants to eat that stuff at all!! Its taken a Michelin starred chef to make the bold statement that eating normal food, but lighter versions, is the way forward. Thank you Gordon Ramsay for bring this book out that gives plenty of really good ideas for meals with variety, flavour and plenty of nutrition using real food that you can buy anywhere. Now I know I can batch bake some frittatas to freeze and zap in the microwave for a couple of minutes to take to work for breakfast or lunch, overnight porridge is a wonderful idea, so quick and easy . My weight loss mission is now on track. Thank you again.
This book is an interesting read and the recipes seem great. So far I have only tried a couple and one didn't work for me at all but I am sure that was my fault. It isn't easy when you are cooking for one to reduce ingredients correctly and I definitely used the wrong proportions. You know what it is like. You buy a recipe book and actually only find two or three recipes you will actually do. Not so with this book. It reignited my passion for cooking and I am so glad I took the plunge. Will definitely buy more or Gordon's books.
This book is great if you're really into your healthy food, but if you're just looking to cut down a little bit then this book is not for you. It seems like it goes to the extremes of healthy eating with really uncommon ingredients. I've watched alot of Gordon Ramsay and he usally makes greate tasting foods with a healthy twist but not this time. Personally it's not for me but i can see why some would like this book.
Just bought and only half way through reading it but have already marked so many recipes as must make. I’ve been alternately put off and enchanted by Gordon Ramsay but after this book I am a firm fan. Sensible and delicious food should be a goal for each of us. These recipes are all about my kind of food and will likely be my “go to” inspiration for some time to come. Thank you Gordon.
I really like this book. I find most healthy food books contain pretty sad recipes, often lacking in flavour or not taking advantage of cookery techniques.
This book is quite the opposite, the recipes are well-explained, relatively simple and I'm yet to make one that isn't delicious.
Each recipe includes nutritional information which is also often missed out in healthy food recipe books - when it can safely be assumed many folks using these will be monitoring their calories/nutrients.
Favourite recipe so far is the velveted pork skewer with pickled vegetables (techniques like velveting and picking should be used more as they make this heathy and delicious).
My only complaint is that the recipes don't have a duration specified, so you have to read the entire method to work out how long it'll take.
Most ingredients are readily available in supermarkets and majority of the recipes are delicious, but many are not very meal prep friendly. I tend to use dinner recipes to make to bring to work, because I work 12 hour shifts.
Book arrived on time and was in perfect brand new condition.
