    Fabulous cookbook. I stumbled on this cookbook while I was searching for something else. One of the best stumbles I've had! I have been trying to eat healthier and eliminate processed foods and refined sugars. Not an easy thing to do. I often ended up eating the same boring foods to maintain my new focus. (notice I say focus, not diet) This cookbook has some wonderful recipes with easy to find ingredients. We are now making an effort to make something every day and I have found that not only am I Fabulous cookbook. I stumbled on this cookbook while I was searching for something else.

We are now making an effort to make something every day and I have found that not only am I eating great foods, but my energy level has increased significantly. We made the mocha smoothie last night for a late night cap. It was one of the best things I've ever had; better than a hot fudge sundae, better than a chocolate milkshake! Low in calories, but yet healthy and tasty. I highly recommend this cookbook

I love the idea of incorporating some meat, some vegan, some paleo, etc. and having a balnced diet rather than simply following one plan or idea. I can't wait to make so many of these recipes! Dishes like Maple Pecan Balls, BBQ Chicken Quinoa Casserole, or Spicy Black Bean Quinoa soup.

So far we've tried quite a few of her dishes and have found them to be easy, nutritious and very tasty. Favorites are: her Green Smoothie with coconut milk, cinnamon and kale; Green Immune-tea which is recommended for fighting a cold; Turmeric and Tahini Roasted Cauliflower, and Curried Honey Mustard Salmon. If you are a dessert-eater then those recipes looked excellent too and many are healthy remakes of treats inspired by the author's Southern heritage.

    I love this cookbook! I’ve checked it out from the library and have renewed it twice. I think I just need to buy it. It’s a healthy cookbook with a wide variety of recipes that celebrate eating rather than fitting into a diet regime. Although a lot of the recipes call for alternative ingredients, such as almond flour or coconut milk, Laura Lea isn’t shoving alternative diets in your face. You can tell she has tested these recipes out very thoroughly and the flavors are incredible. The crockpot b I love this cookbook! I’ve checked it out from the library and have renewed it twice.

Some of the ingredients are a harder to find than your standard ingredients but most of them are readily available if you know where to look. Her recipes aren’t excessively complicated either. I highly recommend this book!

    This is such a fun cookbook. I haven’t tried all of the recipes yet. (Actually a couple I probably never will because they just don’t appeal to me. There’s always a couple like that in every cookbook though, right?) However I have a few faves that I’ll make for years to come. Like the Butter Chicken. LOVE! In general I try to avoid rice because I can’t metabolism it very well, but every once in a while I will indulge in the coconut rice. Incredible!

I also love the Mexican Slow Cooker Bolognese and the Sweet Chili Pumpkin Seed Clusters are surprisingly yummy...and addictive! So many fun & healthy recipes. Her instructions are easy to follow too.

    I first heard about Laura Lea from some other nutrition bloggers on instagram and had to see what all the fuss was about and bought her book. At first you wonder if these recipes will really be good because she includes some a lot of different ingredients that you don’t usually see in traditional cook books, like coconut milk and almond flour but you have to try them for yourself because they are all AMAZING! The Green smoothie and black bean brownies are reason enough to buy her book.

    I loved this book. It can be hard to find good dairy free recipes. This book offers paleo, vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy-free healthy and delicious meal options. I can’t wait to try these!!!

    I borrow a lot of books from the library including cookbooks. This was such a great book I just ordered it to own. The first few pages got my attention and loved how she broke things down. Definitely a must read.
