This book is more than meets the eye. It is a cookbook, but it has much more to offer, especially for readers concerned with food addictions, healthy eating, weight loss, and health issues. Rigden, a nutritionist and chef, doesn’t shy away from difficult topics but embraces them by sharing her own passions and struggles with food and healthy eating. The first half of her debut offering helps readers consider their relationship with food. Then, over six concise chapters, she outlines health issues connected to the types of food one eats and highlights food choices that are healthier options. The second half of the book presents recipes that reinforce these healthy choices. For each recipe, Rigden writes a short personal reflection on why she included it.
VERDICT A good mix of guidance and recipes. Rigden’s expertise and compassion may make readers feel that they are in her kitchen and have a friend who supports them.
