Instead of snacking on junk, there is a god-send chapter called Snacks and Dips. Listed is Basic Bean Dip. All you do is combine beans, salsa and a little cumin and voila! Serve with tortilla chips or wrap in a tortilla for an instant burrito.
In Main Dishes, there is a chart on how to build your own burrito. Super simple to follow.
In Easy Pasta Dishes, there is a super easy recipe for Peanut Pasta. A teen is quoted as saying that all she does is melt peanut butter with a little water and then tosses with spaghetti!
Following, Angel Hair with Broccoli sounds good if you want some comfort food.
In Salad, Lemony Cukes are super simple... Chop, mix with oil, lemon juice, salt and pepper! Yum. Then there is Sesame Slaw. Coleslaw is often served with fish dinners at restaurants. Now make your own!
Following, there is a chart on how to build a grain salad. Super simple to follow and sure to never bore!
Then, there is the section on Soups. Quick Creamy Broccoli Soup and Gingered Carrot Soup sound good. Lorraine's Vegetable Wonder Soup and Chiqui's Corn Chowder are also a good comfort soup. Mushroom Barley Mumbo and Gazpacho sound like they'd go super with a loaf of garlic bread!
In the chapter On The Side, there is a cute recipe for Sauteed Greens and Garlic. The cookbook even says you can make a sandwich with it. I would serve with a soup..
The very end of the book is for when the teen heads off to college. There is a chart that shows the teen what they need to have in their college pantry!
This is a nice cookbook sure to keep healthy. I, myself, have learned so much from reading such cookbook.
