Ever since I was a little girl, I’ve loved looking through cookbooks and trying new recipes. I get inspired and giddy when I see new ideas to try in the kitchen. Is it just me? I look through cookbooks when I’m visiting friends and family, I check out cookbooks from the library, and I drool over recipe ideas when I see them in magazines. I might be addicted. My family appreciates this problem of mine. :)
While all of the eBooks and eCourses in the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle are all super helpful, as you can imagine, I really get excited when I’m looking through all the recipes included.
Would you believe there are over 1,500 recipes in there??!? That doesn’t even include all the non-food recipes like facial scrubs and homemade shampoos! There’s also an entire section of recipes for special diets like gluten free, dairy free, paleo, etc.
What I love most: I don’t have to adapt any of these recipes. While in so many regular cookbooks I see “margarine” listed as an ingredient, then I gag and switch it out to real butter – the recipes in this package are already real food and wholesome. (My apologies for using the word “margarine” on my blog. blech, phlebt, chvolbleglegh)
My current favorite recipe book in the bundle is called Simply Salads by Season. Winter can be a tough one when it comes to creating exciting salads. (I live in Nebraska, remember? It’s the land of freezing cold everything is brown and dreary for months.) But this book has been so inspiring – giving me dozens of fun new veggie ideas.
I devoured a huge serving (would that be three servings?!) of this Broccoli Salad one day for lunch. Then, since we have oodles of clementines right now, I followed the next recipe for Clementines in Whipped Cream. Oh my goodness, why have I not thought of that before?
Next on my list to try from Simply Salads by Season are: Tex Mex Bean Salad and Tangy Salmon Salad. There are also many homemade salad dressing recipes in that book that seem to be a really fun diversion from my normal Homemade Ranch Dressing. So inspiring! I am giddy, giddy, giddy (like my 10 year old looking at his collection).
There’s also a great book in the bundle I’m working my way through called, Smoothie Secrets Revealed. Beyond all the great recipes in that book, it also contains some very good information on health and nourishment.
And, because life is about balance, and because while salads and smoothies are awesome, so are cookies (made with butter!) – the boys and I made a batch of Mexican Orange Cookies from the Nourishing Cookies eBook. Wow. Light, fluffy, and no one can tell they are made with whole wheat and honey. Mmmmmmm…
From money-saving recipes, to healthy breakfast recipes, to freezer cooking, to salads, to smoothies, to cookies, to granola, to beans, to kale, to condiments – I continue to have so much fun with all the great recipes to look through and try. 1500 tried and true recipes to use in my real food kitchen? Be still my heart.
These are the last few hours the Ultimate Healthy Living Bundle 2014 will be available. With this package you will be loaded and equipped with so many great ways to feed your family! After midnight, this set of eBooks and eCourses, along with the $140 worth of freebies is gone forever.
Please don’t miss this! I wouldn’t be going on and on about it if I didn’t love it and feel like your investment in this will blow you away. Small amount of money – huge amount of information, guidance, encouragement, and goodies! (MadeOn Hard Lotion – for FREE. Yes!!) Click here for more info or to buy now.
