Vegetarian, gluten-free meals, small bites, and sweets to feed the whole family
Think eating real food and pleasing all the palates in a busy family with young kids is impossible? My Darling Lemon Thyme's Emma Galloway inspires you to think again.
Now available for the first time in the US, popular special diets blogger Emma Galloway's family cookbook, My Darling Lemon Thyme, is a collection of 100 recipes that reflect the philosophy that natural, whole food should be flavorsome, fun, and easy to prepare. Beyond just recipes, we savor Emma's stories about life with a young, energetic family too.
Meant for anyone who loves great food that is also good for you, these delightfully fresh recipes are 100% vegetarian and gluten-free--icing on the (naturally sweetened) cake. You'll find foods your grandparents would recognize, not the food-like products humankind has developed to make our lives easier but which seem to make us ever more unhealthy. Beyond any labels, this book is less about eliminating and more about embracing food as it's supposed to be: whole and unadulterated, fresh from the earth, prepared with minimal fuss, and eaten in a way that nourishes our bodies.
Emma's personal belief is that everyone can benefit from eating less wheat, meat, and dairy in their diet. But her recipes are not just for those with food intolerances or allergies or for vegetarians. The recipes are for everyone who wants to enjoy a better life and celebrate nutritious, wholesome, real cooking. Quite simply, My Darling Lemon Thyme offers us another way of eating, living, and being in the world, and in the kitchen. Extensive pantry-stocking instructions and a glossary are included.
This is a book about real food for real people, and full of healthy gluten-free recipes. Every recipe I have made from this book is delicious. It has a really useful section on different ingredients, including numerous non-gluten flours. From it I’ve made gluten-free cakes that taste like cakes and a pizza base that is even better than its wheat equivalent. There is yummy photography throughout which makes you want to reach in and steal a piece. It’s the best kind of cookbook, which inspires delicious healthy nutritious food. - Sarah
