The new Trim Healthy Future book has been released for pre-order, and It is fantastic!
I was one of the fortunate people to get to the website (I think I happened to click seconds after the pre-order started). I know there are many of you who have been waiting in the queue to get your copy, and while I know that isn't awesome I can tell you this book is definitely worth it!
When Trim Healthy Table was released, I put together a menu and shopping list highlighting all of my favorite recipes – but this time, I just couldn't wait! I created a menu using the recipes I'm most excited to try in Trim Healthy Future, and I am really excited to get cooking!
Tips for using the menu and shopping list
If you haven't used one of my menus before, I just want to encourage you not to be intimidated by the size of the shopping list. Yes, it looks huge, but I try to include every single thing you will need from the meals on the menu, even salt and pepper.
The best way to use this shopping list is to shop your fridge, pantry, and freezer first. Cross of any ingredients you already have, then shop for the rest.
You may find that you don't need or want to cook this much, and that's OK! If you have fewer people to cook for and don't want to be spending so much time in the kitchen, try making just every other meal on this menu and using the leftovers to replace the meals you're crossing off. Or skip cooking at lunch time, and use dinner leftovers for your lunches the next day.
Please make special note of the recipes that are marked as single serve, or recipes that serve two. If you are feeding more you'll just want to double or triple the recipe as appropriate.
