This weeks food highlights - Week 4

Adding to my cookbook collection is very exciting! I see it as an investment to my health and my culinary journey! Here are the two latest additions to my collection

1) Joyous Health - Eat and Live Well Without Dieting. 

'Joy McCarthy is a Holistic Nutritionist, author of JOYOUS HEALTH: Eat & Live Well without Dieting, professional speaker, nutrition expert on Global’s Morning Show, Faculty Member at Institute of Holistic Nutrition and co-creator of Eat Well Feel Well.'

2) Joy of Cooking - 75th Anniversary Edition. In my opinion this is a culinary bible that every person interested in cooking should invest in!

I'm so excited to dive into these books and try out new recipes to share with you. Oh and it's a complete coincidence they both have Joy in the title!

Top Left: Thai Coconut Curry Soup - Pure heaven in a bowl and my favorite go to soup
Top Right: Homemade Hummus (I recommend doubling the roasted garlic) & Veggies
Bottom Left: Toasted Sesame Ginger Salmon, Oven Baked Onion Rings & Roasted Sweet Potato Rounds with Goat Cheese & Balsamic Glaze
Bottom Right: Lemony Lentil Soup with Dill and Feta & Spinach Salad with Shredded Yellow Beets, Avocado, Toasted Sesame Seeds & Glory Bowl Dressing

Glory Bowl Dressing from Whitewater Cooks
1/2 cup nutritional yeast flakes
1/3 cup water
1/3 cup tamari or soy sauce
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
2 tbsp tahini paste

*Mix well in blender or processor and keep in a mason jar ready to drizzle when ever you need a good kick of yum.

This dressing is unbelievable! Super creamy and tastes like there is cheese in it because of the nutritional yeast!

  1. I love my 'Joy of Cooking' cook book. Every serious at home chef should have one I think.
