“In Eat Better, Feel Better, I share my personal journey, as well as the recipes I’ve relied on to keep me feeling better at fifty than I did at thirty-all without giving up the foods I love,” Giada de Laurentiis.
I have been eagerly awaiting this cookbook as I love all of Giada’s previous cookbooks. As someone who tries to eat healthy most of the time I am always searching for new recipes. Eat Better, Feel Better offers so many recipes for you to choose from that are flavorful and filling.
The cookbook also offers great health and wellness tips. There is even a 21 day meal plan if you are looking to jump start your healthy eating.
Gigi's Sweet Potato Wedges
I love sweet potato fries but have never had a lot of success in making them at home. Gigi’s sweet potato wedges looked really good so I decided to give them a try. The hardest part of the recipe was cutting the sweet potatoes into wedges. Once they were done I tossed them with the oil and old bay and put them on the hot sheet pan.
They cooked better than I thought but next time I may try making my wedges a little smaller so they can get even crisper. They are a little spicy so you will want to keep that in mind – I dipped mine in some ranch and it made for the perfect bite!
Sheet Pan Parmesan Shrimp and Veggies
Who doesn’t love a sheet pan supper? So easy to make and to clean up. The photo in Eat Better, Feel Better immediately made me hungry so I knew I had to make it.
The recipe is very easy to make, especially since you can buy peeled and deveined shrimp at most grocery stores. I prepped the veggies quickly and cleaned up while everything cooked in the oven. The aroma of the the veggies roasting filled the whole house and made my stomach growl.
I was so happy by the way the dish turned out and this will now be a regular meal in my house.
Overall Eat Better, Feel Better is another great cookbook from Giada De Laurentiis. The recipes in the cookbook are focused on foods that don’t cause inflammation in our bodies. Even thought they are healthier recipes you don’t feel like you are missing out on anything. I can’t wait to cook my way through the rest of the recipes.
