At IIN, we are always looking for good, healthy cookbooks, so it’s no surprise that we are very excited about the release of Integrative Nutrition Graduate, class of 2010, Elizabeth Rider’s new book, WholeEating Cookbook!
The book is a vegetarian, gluten-free cookbook with an emphasis on low-glycemic recipes. What is low-glycemic? The glycemic scale measures the rate at which the food that you eat increases your blood sugar levels. Foods with lower numbers, 0-55, are low glycemic foods, and only raise your blood sugar level slightly. Foods that are medium glycemic range from 56-70, and high glycemic are from 71-100. Rider’s book features recipes for foods that satisfy your appetite without spiking your blood sugar level.
WholeEating Cookbook is full of healthy recipes that are perfect to serve at your holiday party this year. Our favorites include the Orange Pomegranate Sparkler, a sweet, fizzy, and festive drink, and the Crunchy Spiced Chickpeas, an appetizer recipe we recommend doubling – your guests will love it!
Elizabeth also has recipes that are perfect for healthy living all year long. What we love about the recipes in WholeEating Cookbook is that nothing is too difficult or time consuming to make. Dishes like the Spiced Black Bean Tacos with Avocado Cream and the Creamy Cauliflower, Leek and Garlic Soup make it easy for you to eat delicious, healthy meals without spending hours in the kitchen.
One of the best parts of WholeEating Cookbook are the Bonus Tip pages that feature tips from Elizabeth on how to incorporate healthy eating into your everyday lifestyle. Ideas on making meals ahead or how to eat healthily on a budget can make all the difference when trying to keep healthy habits going long-term.
The launch date of WholeEating Cookbook is December 7th, 2011, just in time for the holidays! Elizabeth is giving away several bonus offers when you purchase the book, including Yoga Arms and Abs with Cassandra Green, a 15-minute workout video; Self-Acupressure Class with Josie Bouchier, a 30-minute instructional video on how to give yourself a full body massage; and several other offers. Check out the WholeEating Cookbook website to learn more about the special offers and pre-order your copy. The book will be available on Amazon as a Kindle eBook and can be read on any electronic device, including your smart phone, computer, iPad, reader, or tablet.
