Achieve optimal health with simply and deliciously prepared food. A
great meal does not have to be complex. Suzanne Sweeney has hit the target for those who don’t have much time to spend in the kitchen preparing food, as well as embraced the creative nature of those who do. With many of the recipes only requiring thirty minutes or less and each recipe labeled to address a variety of food intolerances, this book is the ultimate tool to gain control of your health.
