40 Days to Yummy Living!


 The 40 Days Cookbook is part of the larger 40 Days to Better Living series that promotes spiritual and physical wellness.  The cookbook explains what your body need and why it needs it.  Recipes are included for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.  Quite a few of the snack recipes seem like side dishes to me, though.  The book is about eating better, but it is not a vegan, paleo, or vegetarian cookbook.  Meat and fish are a part of most recipes.  Super yummy dishes like the Chicken and Rice bowl with Teriyaki Glaze, Fish and Chips (how can that ever be bad), and Chocolate Chocolate Chip Muffins!

I have the ebook on my Kindle Fire and the formatting Is good.  I would have preferred to have the table of contents list individual dishes for an easier way to find the dish.  I imagine the in the hard copy it is a bit easier to locate individual recipes.  Like most cookbook junkies, I like pictures with each recipe—to inspire me to create a dish or to mock me when my creation looks nothing like the one in the book.  This book has quite a few of those pictures but some recipes just show a picture of the ingredients.  I would have preferred a picture with each recipe. 

I wasn’t too enthused with the use of soy products and sugar substitutes in some of the recipes but otherwise it is a great cookbook.  I am especially looking forward to making the Chicken, Mushroom, and Spinach Crepes, broccoli cheese cornbread, and the bean Bolognese—not at the same meal though!

I received this book free of charge from Barbour Publishing, Inc., through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
