The Healthy Slow Cooker 'Second Edition' 135 Gluten-Free Recipes for Health and Wellness Cook Book Review


The Healthy Slow Cooker: 135 Gluten-Free Recipes for Health and Wellness $18.90

Definitions of healthy eating have changed quite dramatically since The Healthy Slow Cooker was first published in 2006. In those days it was one size fits all; i.e. low-fat, no saturated fat, low calorie and moving toward nutrient-dense foods.

Now there is a shift in nutritional guidelines and there is significantly more scientific information to add. Many experts report that many modern diseases are directly associated with the consumption of wheat and advocate for a reduction in carbohydrates for beneficial health results. Another significant development is the evidence against saturated fat is gradually diminishing. And at the same time, established dietary guidelines are under increasing scrutiny.

Judith Finlayson takes all this conflicting information and balances it with a common sense approach that can be customized according to individual needs. All the recipes are deliciously nutrient-dense and have a balanced approach that will meet a wide variety of needs in an unbeatable combination of appetizing, healthy meals prepared in a slow cooker.

With such a wide range of recipes, from hearty soups to elegant desserts, preparing nutritious and delicious meals strikes the perfect balance between achieving healthy eating habits and assuring great tastes. More recipes feature fresh herbs and spices as well as advocate the benefits of eating sustainably caught fish and pasture-raised meat. Nutritional analysis is provided with each recipe.

This book paints the nutritional big picture with a wide variety of nutrient-dense foods that have been easily and conveniently prepared in a slow cooker.

A few months ago, my brother found out that he had Celiac Disease, which means he cannot eat anything that has gluten in it.  Let me tell you he was not happy. He is only 20 years old therefore to him he felt like his life was over no more Doritos, Taco Bell, rolls the list goes on. However, my mother and I sit down for weeks looking for foods that he could by in the store that would make things easier. We found out that many foods that he liked already were Gluten Free but he also had to try new foods and brands. Some foods were great tasting others well were a huge miss when it came to texture and taste. We decided to look for recipes to make him meals from scratch. When I received the Healthy Slow Cooker Cook Book which offers 135 Gluten-Free Recipes my mother and brother were both really excited to try some of the meals in the book. 

We have tried several different recipes, all which have been extremely tasty. The recipes are very easy to follow and the result is amazing food. My brother loves that he can enjoy great tasting dinners like before just with different ingredients. If you are on a gluten free diet or are thinking about making the change to gluten free this is a must have cook book to have.
