To compliment  the smart and friendly voice the book is written in, the recipes are well worth their salt (or lack thereof) as well. Between  the fried crab fritters and the Christmas lima bean soup, or the crunchy banana waffles and the global egg rolls, there are certainly at least a few courses for everyone. There are recipes for food lovers of every cooking skill level and flavor preference. On top of all of this Dunnington makes a point to mention any possible ways of making these dishes in an eco-friendly manner and even includes a glossary of eco-friendly techniques and tips. Regardless of your confidence in cooking or your charisma in the kitchen “Tasting the Seasons” is a cook book for those who want to share an all around pleasing meal with friends or loved ones.

Healthy Eating & Good Taste!

Would you think that having Almond Flour Waffles for breakfast, French Onion Soup for lunch, Tomato Bruschetta for a snack, Ragu Bolognese for dinner and cap it off with some French Vanilla Ice Cream would be healthy?

Apparently so, according to Specific Carbohydrate Diet (SCD), which restricts the use of complex carbohydrates and eliminates refined sugar, grains, and starch.  People with incurable digestive problems don’t have to compromise on taste with some delicious recipes.

Cooking for the Specific Carbohydrate Diet, color book has over 100 recipes geared to those sensitive to particular foods.

“Our society is now closely scrutinizing where our food comes from and what’s in it,” says author Erica Kerwien. “There is a proliferation of diets that exclude processed foods, grains, dairy, and/or sugar. No two people are genetically the same, so it makes perfect sense that each person should eat food that works best for his or her body.”
