It’s Just Better … in a Bowl! By Debra Abeling


Cooking real food has many health benefits for you and your family, and it’s just better eaten out of a bowl. This book will teach you what real food is, why use a bowl, and how to stock a healthy pantry and kitchen.

You will also learn healthy substitutions, ingredients for building a healthy bowl, along with meal prepping ideas.

There are many recipes using simple real ingredients to make breakfast, soup and stew, salad, dinner, and dessert bowls. It’s just better cooking real food that is served in a bowl.

My Thoughts:

This is the first time I have been asked to review a cookbook. I love to cook and really think that reviewing cookbooks is the way forward as I don’t think they get enough reviews but that is just me personally.

I think this cookbook is brilliant for people that are just learning to cook, students or people that want to become healthier. There are some great tips in the book about why a bowl is better and I did have to agree with them, like it helps with portion control. Even though it is an american cookbook you can still get most of the ingredients in the UK. There are a few different recipes going from making a salad, to cooking meat to puddings. I am definitely going to try making some of the puddings. The only thing I would say about this book is that I would prefer to have more pictures of the end product so that you can see what you are working towards as that always helps. I think it would also benefit people who aren’t use to cooking too.

I received a copy of this book for an honest review.
