Rachael’s Good Eats: Easy, Laid-Back, Nutrient-Rich Recipes

St. Martin’s Griffin. Apr. 2023. 256p. ISBN 9781250850393. $35. COOKING
Dietician, personal trainer, and Instagram influencer DeVaux has spun her popular health and fitness online platform into her first cookbook. People familiar with healthy cooking will find a lot of familiar territory here, as well as plenty of trendy terminology, such as “Paleo” and “anti-inflammatory.” A detailed pantry list helps readers get started stocking their larders, including a number of expensive ingredients, some of which are used in only one or two recipes. The book is very useful for those who must avoid soy, gluten, and other common allergens, although DeVaux does use nut-based products, including butters and milks. The recipes are listed by categories, which helps readers searching for just vegan recipes or those that are nut-free.
VERDICT For libraries wishing to expand their cookbook collection with healthy and allergy-free focused works, this is a good choice, and DeVaux’s many Instagram fans will be looking for it.
