Easy Fast-Food And Cookies Cookbook! by KJ Walt is the second book in the Healthy You series in which the author has created recipes that embody “Delicious DIY Healthy Versions of Foods You Crave!” Walt avoids ingredients that lack the nutritional and digestive value our bodies require and instead homes in on food that is tasty, simple to prepare, and nutritionally sound. For each recipe, Walt includes a list of ingredients and their step-by-step directions on how to prepare the dish, and photographs so a reader can see what the final product looks like. They also include, where relevant, alternative cooking methods, storing methods, serving ideas, tips, tricks, and notes to make the process even better.
A book is always so much better when something extra special is included as a surprise, so imagine my pleasure when I got to the final page of Easy Fast-Food And Cookies Cookbook! and saw that KJ Walt gives actual bath recipes for a wonderful soak in the tub. I didn't think anything could surpass the spicy double chocolate cherry cranberry cookies until I took a hot Alma honey bath. Walt's recipes are incredibly simple and diverse enough so that everyone who picks them up will find something that tickles their fancy...and all without any of the junk found on most supermarket shelves. This is a no-fuss, no-muss writing style that is substantive but does not sacrifice the heaps of encouragement offered by Walt, nor the fun personality that resonates from the page. Very highly recommended.
