Mealleaniyumm (pronounced similar to 'millenium') is an excellent book on healthy eating habits for the kosher or not person! It is packed with 800 recipes, all delicious AND nutritious. Kosher foods are foods permitted to be eaten by the Jewish dietary law as described in the Bible. Forbidden foods include pork, wild game, horse, shellfish, fish without scales (such as eels), snakes, camels, hippos, bears and fermented drinks (with the exception of wine). Also, dairy products and meats must not come into contact. Therefore, if you are craving a turkey and cheddar sandwich, you won't be able to eat it! What I enjoyed most was that there was a nutritional analysis for each recipe. There were also tips on how to cut fat and add fiber to recipes. And if you are a vegetarian, fear not, there are numerous recipes for you in here as well! This cookbook contains recipes with easy-to-read instructions, as well as easy-to-find ingredients. There are tips on how to save time, a substitution guide, and recipe variations. She shows us how to read a label, and how to eat healthier. She suggests some pantry staples, an herb guide, ideas on how to cut fat and much more! Excellent recipes to try are: Oven-Roasted Vegetables, Terrific Tofu Stir-Fry, Luscious Lemon Squares, Jumble Berry Crisp, Skinny Potato Skins and Herbed Lemon Chicken Breasts with Mushrooms. This is a fabulous book. With more than 800 recipes, healthy eating tips, with easy-to-read instructions, this book is an excellent addition to anyone's library!
