Feeding the Whole Family Cookbook Review

Feeding The Whole Family  – Cooking With Whole Foods

by Cynthia Lair
So many women become interested in eating a whole foods diet once they become pregnant. Whereas before they were mostly interested in maintaining their weight, once they’re responsible for another life, it becomes more important to maintain health. feeding-the-whole-family-cookbook

But then when baby starts eating solid foods, a curve ball is thrown into the kitchen. How do you prepare meals for babies, tots, kids and a hungry husband too?

Thankfully there are many awesome cookbooks available that make the job of preparing and cooking food for your family a little easier.

Feeding the Whole Family is one such cookbook. It’s not strictly vegetarian nor does it advocate any kind of exclusive eating regime. It’s just what it says – a whole foods cookbook.

You won’t find any recommendations for fake foods or boxed stuff or mystery ingredients that are hard to pronounce (except maybe for a couple of items that are only available at your local health food store). The recipes are simple and easy to prepare, tasty and appeal to everyone.

What makes this cookbook unique is that each recipe has a recommendation for feeding a baby. Many moms want to make their own baby food so as to give their infant the freshest, highest quality food they can, but don’t want to spend all their time in the kitchen. That’s hardly feasible when you have a young baby anyway! Nor is it even necessary. All you have to do is remove a little of the food before adding salt or other ingredients that baby may not be eating yet. Simple!

The first section of the book provides an overview of what whole foods eating means, suggestions for alternative ingredients (such as healthier fats and sweeteners) and other tips for pregnant and nursing moms who may have questions about their diet. It gives instructions on how to prepare whole grains including some that may be unknown to someone new to whole foods eating.

This cookbook would be an excellent choice as a gift for a friend who is transitioning to a healthier diet or on any mom’s shelf who has already made a commitment to feeding her family well with a minimum of fuss.

More than a cookbook, Feeding the Whole Family is really a how to manual for eating foods closer to nature. Check it out at Amazon.com
