- The Vegetable Soup was delicious! Lots of flavor and very satisfying. Preparation was easy if you don't mind the time involved for cutting up all the veggies. I added a bit of crushed red pepper to give it a little kick.
- Poached Chicken: So I cook a lot and think I'm pretty good at it but I've never poached a chicken breast! I gave it a try and was underwhelmed by the result. I think I will stick to baking it because I don't think there are any nutritional differences.
- Greek Yogurt: This was a choice for either a breakfast or a snack. You had to get the 0% fat, plain greek yogurt which I was sure would be disgusting! However, after adding only a teaspoon of raw honey and mixing in the raw almonds I actually loved it! (The recipe did not say to add the honey - I figured adding a tsp of honey a day to the diet was not going to derail me haha!). I couldn't believe that it was fat free - so rich and creamy!
- About the raw honey - she has a note in her cookbook that it's much better for you than the filtered, processed version. I loved it but I have to say I can't believe how expensive it was - $8.99 for a 6 oz. jar! Yikes!
