    After reading the Digest Diet, I looked forward to seeing the co

    After reading the Digest Diet, I looked forward to seeing the cookbook.  One of my first concerns was were there any repeated recipes in the new cookbook that the Digest Diet shared.  I am happy to say there is not!   There are 150 new recipes to help on your 21 day diet!
    The first part of the book gives reviews the important concepts of the Digest Diet.  I liked this I didn’t have to get my Digest Diet book out.  One thing that impressed me is these recipes is encourage and explain the need for ‘good’ fats in our diet.  I am totally against the non-fat diet craze that has been around for so many years.  All the recipes help you to incorporate and use the much needed ‘good’ fats’.  Also included in the recipes are the foods 13 foods they refer to as ‘Fat 
    Releasers”.  This makes it so easy to prepare meals and eat the foods that are key in your weight loss.  
    Suggestions for stocking your pantry, freezer, and kitchen are made so that you have everything you need to make meal preparation easy.  While there are rules, there is also flexibility.  There are helpful, multiple brand name suggestions for different foods throughout the book.  I thought this was great because it makes finding what you need at the grocery store so easy!   I was excited to see pages that help create your own snacks.  There was a lot of variety and combinations!  For those with allergies there is a table of suitable swaps for foods used in the recipes and also another table of non-dairy sources of calcium.
    Recipe categories are:
    Breakfasts
    Soups 
    Main Dishes
    Salads
    Side Dishes
    Desserts
    Each category is divided into the phases of the diet: Fat Release, Fade Away, and Finish Strong, This way you can quickly locate the recipes available for the phase you are in.  I like that in each and every recipe they listed the Fat Releasers that are in it.  Not only for the information, but it also gives you a sense of accomplishment in your diet.  Every time you eat you are being proactive in losing weight! I found  the special menus included very useful.  These menus are:
    Quick Fix
    Vegetarian
    Dairy Free
    Cooking for One
    On a Budget.   These also are divided into the diet phases. 
    The recipes are varied, tasty, and easy to prepare.  The full page color pictures were wonderful in helping me choose what I want to fix.  What I find so great and unique about the Digest Diet and Digest Diet Cookbook is how they have done everything to help you succeed in your weight loss goals.  A cookbook you will want to own, even if you aren’t dieting and just want to eat healthy! 
     I received this book free from FBS Pulishers. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255

    Q: When is a cookbook more than a cookbook?
    A: When it’s also the tool that gets you a leaner, healthier, more attractive body.

    That is exactly what The Digest Cookbook by Liz Vaccariello does, and she has lots of testimonies from happy people to prove it. I’ll explain.

    For over 90 years, Reader’s Digest has been famous for sorting through stacks and stacks of information to ferret out the best nuggets for their readers. One year ago, the editor-in-chief, Liz Vaccariello, began the daunting task of researching healthy diet and weight loss information. Can you imagine how many hours it would take (I’m thinking decades) to wade through all the garbage out there? The fads, the fakes, the scams, and the ploys to reel you in and then sell you expensive supplements—not to mention all those impossible-to-stay-on diets and diets that are ridiculously expensive. If you’ve ever looked at the giant shelf-full of diet books at Barnes & Noble, you know what I’m talking about. It’s confusing. Even among doctors in white lab coats and fitness gurus in Spandex, there is a lot of conflicting information. So having a neutral party—someone who has spent an entire career sorting through fact and fiction—go through all the articles, science, and latest breakthroughs, and then boil it down to one clear presentation is like a gift from heaven.

    Chapter 1 provides essential information about getting rid of body fat. The proof is right inside the book with before and after photos of real people who are sporting leaner bodies.

    Chapter 2 teaches you how to set up your kitchen for success. Again, more success stories are here to keep your motivation running on high.

    I love Chapter 3, “Create Your Own 21-Day Fat Release Plan,” because you can tailor the plan to suit your own needs, tastes, allergies, etc. Frankly, there are too many diet plans out there that put foods I’m allergic to on the “essential” list. And then the other half of the list are foods that make me gag. By contrast, with this plan, you get to set up your own list with foods you like and that fit your lifestyle. Even if you’re a working mom and cannot do all the gourmet cooking, you can succeed by choosing fast and easy menu items.

    Chapters 4-10 are chockfull of delicious recipes and full-color photographs. Everything from breakfast bread to soups to main dishes to desserts is here. There’s a Fast Release Shake you can whip up that has 16g protein--no expensive pre-made mixes that taste like chalk. There are sandwiches and wraps for bag lunches. There’s Chicken Piccata with Capers and Olives, Herb-Crusted Salmon, Jerk Steak, and North Carolina Barbecued Tenderloin, among other mouth-watering main dishes. It goes without saying that there are plenty of salads and vegetable dishes to pick from.

    And don’t forget dessert. How about a Strawberry Cheesecake Mousse with only 134 calories! Or, Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies? Or, Blueberry Apple Crisps? Yum!

    This is a plan you can do whether you’re cooking for one or for the family. You can do it on a budget. There is no hidden sales agenda where you’re pushed to buy other stuff. You never have to go hungry. What’s not to love?

    So again, when is a cookbook more than a cookbook? When it’s a healthy eating plan that makes you look and feel better. Thank you, Liz Vaccariello and Reader’s Digest!

    As a huge fan of both Reader's Digest and diet recipes, I knew I

    As a huge fan of both Reader's Digest and diet recipes, I knew I had to try this new companion cookbook to the New York Times-bestselling The Digest Diet. This book is a compilation of brand new recipes to go along with that diet, so it's less reading, and more recipe-enjoying! And boy, can I say how much I enjoyed sifting through this to get new ideas and even cook up some waistline-friendly food of my own!

    I'm still skeptical about the actual diet plan itself; the "lose up to 26 pounds in 21 days" claim obviously does not speak to typical results. In fact, a lot of the diet plan doesn't settle well with me, as it involves lots of skipping meals and only one snack a day (not healthy!). It also emphasizes the importance of fat releasers (good!) and fat increasers (bad!) which can be helpful in selecting ingredients, but I feel it was a bit restrictive.

    What I absolutely love love love however, is how there's such an expansive variety of recipes here. Recipes range from flank steak (!!!!) to chickpea-crust pizza to turkey milanese to frozen berry terrine. Good golly, that sounds tasty! It's not the typical layup you'd picture when you think "health food," which is great because most people—myself included—are turned off by the idea of diets that solely consist of salads-san-dressing and kale smoothies. Yeeuch.

    Pros: Variety of recipes // Well organized into sections: Breakfasts, Soups, Main Dishes, One-Dish Mains, Salads, Side Dishes, and Desserts // Includes informational chapters about fat releasers // Helpful conversion charts for measurements and portions

    Cons: Some recipes don't include pictures! // "26 pounds in 21 days" claim baffles me—anyone could do this, simple. Just starve yourself.

    Verdict: A fabulous collection of scrumptious-sounding recipes, The Digest Diet Cookbook is definitely something you want to invest in for getting on track with your diet with delicious sides, meals, and desserts that won't stretch your waistline. While I can't actually endorse the diet plan Liz Vaccariello recommends (it just doesn't sound nutritionally adequate!), the different recipe ideas presented are sure to be a hit among whole food lovers like yours truly, and will inspire healthful lifestyles among foodies of every breed.

    Rating: 8 out of 10 hearts (4 stars): An engaging read; highly recommended.

    Source: Complimentary copy provided by publicist in exchange for an honest and unbiased review (thank you, FSB Media!).
