Article first published as Book Review: TurboCharged Recipes: Delicious Fuel For Your Fabulous Fat Burning Machine by Dian and Tom Griesel on Blogcritics.
I love a great cookbook! Give me one with recipes that are fast, easy, flavorful and nutritious and I am beyond ecstasy. So when I picked up a copy of TurboCharged Recipes, written by Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and her brother Tom Griesel — the co-creators of the TurboCharged healthy diet and lifestyle program — and perused through the pages, I knew I was in for a treat.
Written as a supplement to the ever-popular and successful TurboCharged series of books:Accelerate Your Fat Burning Metabolism, Get Lean Fast and Leave Diet And Exercise Rules In The Dust, TurboCharged Recipes offers a well-rounded and ample assortment of over 300 culinary treats suitable for every meal, snack and occasion.
However, one need not have read the preceding titles before delving into this edition.TurboCharged Recipes is a great resource for anyone interested in preparing and savoring nourishing meal options.
Divided into 11 sections: beverages, dips and dressings, appetizers, soups and stews, salads, vegetarian, eggs, fish, meats, poultry and desserts, the book provides a plethora of choices for every palate, preference and pocketbook.
Unlike many other “healthy” cookbooks filled with time-consuming preparations demanding the usage of hard-to-locate, expensive and unusual ingredients, TurboCharged Recipes utilize fare easily found at local grocery stores. Most dishes require only a few ingredients and can be prepared from start to finish in less than 30 minutes.
All center on fresh wholesome foods found in nature. Focusing on fruits, green, orange, yellow and red vegetables, eggs, chicken, beef/meats, fish, nuts, beans and cheese, every option relies on products which are preservative, packaged and processed free.
TurboCharged Recipes is a well-written, easy-to-understand and resourceful text filled with healthy tips, information and cuisine selections. Dian Griesel, Ph.D., and Tom Griesel have taken the guesswork out of preparing nutritious, flavorful meals while also providing the framework for developing and maintaining healthy eating habits that can be sustained over a lifetime.
