Delicious, fat-fuelled, recipes that will help keep you feeling satiated and energized all day long.
Fat is back! We have finally realized what our ancestors knew all along--that fats are incredibly healthy and nutritious. As a result, everyone is looking for ways to eat good fats as part of a healthy lifestyle. Most of us are not eating nearly enough good fats and could benefit from radically increasing them in our diets. Good fats provide a rich source of energy for the mind and body, balance blood sugar levels, help with the absorption of vitamins, lower bad cholesterol, and keep you full and satisfied for longer. Most importantly, fats make food taste great!
Eat Good Fat makes eating healthy simple and shares the best healthy-fat foods you should definitely be working into your meals and snacks on a regular basis. The book features over 100 delicious recipes that use whole food ingredients and plenty of good fats in dishes like Grainless Ghee-nola, Easy Banana Oat Pancakes, Turmeric Lemon Soup with Ghee-Fried Cashews, Healthyish Carbonara, Grass-Fed Burgers with Pesto and Butternut Squash, Chicken Thigh Pad Thai with Creamy Almond Butter Sauce, Miso-Orange Wild Salmon with Crispy Broccolini, and Cardamom Date Cake with Goat Cheese Frosting. Each recipe is part of a road map to help guide you toward using fats correctly and in a healthy way--and they were created to have a broad appeal for anyone looking to embrace good fats (in all their delicious glory).
