BOOK REVIEW: Wheat Belly 30-Minute (or less!) Cookbook

You might not be thinking about reading or cookbooks this time of year, but we’ve got something that you’ll probably want to fit in to your busy schedule. It’s an easy read and has a lot of great recipe ideas for the holidays. Introducing Wheat Belly: 30-Minute (or less) Cookbook by Dr. William Davis, MD. William Davis is a cardiologist from Wisconsin and became famous after his popular book Wheat Belly exposed the truth about wheat and gluten, and their overwhelming connection to our health. Now, after the popularity of that book and his second book, Wheat Belly Cookbook, this new 30-Minute or Less Cookbook is another one that you’ll want on your shelves for sure!

This revolutionary cookbook offers 200 quick and simple recipes that will help you lose the wheat, lose the weight, and find your path back to health. Yes, all the recipes are wheat-free and gluten-free, and yes, they can all be made in 30 minutes or less. Could there be anything better? In a world where we have too many things to do and not enough time for ourselves, eating healthily at home often gets neglected. With these recipes, you won’t find any excuse not to enjoy delicious, nutritious meals in the comfort of your own home! If you can take an hour out of your day to watch TV or half an hour to chat on the phone, then you have enough time to make these delicious meals.

The book starts with a brilliant introduction that explains just how easy it is to make delicious and healthy meals at home, and knocks down any typical roadblock that would stand in your way. It also goes through a step-by-step plan that walks you through what ingredients your kitchen should be stocked with to get ready for these wheat-free meals, and what ingredients should be kicked to the curb. This helpful guide sets you up for success from the get go. It provides a great clarity on the confusion of oils and sweeteners, and even tells you what foods wheat is hiding in (some may surprise you!).

This introduction gets you prepped and ready to take on the 30-minute wheat-free meals. And right after the intro, you jump right in. The book provides a number of key staple recipes, such as wheat-free flour recipes, wheat-free breads, and sauces and dressings that play a star role in many of the recipes. The first section of recipes features dips, spreads, sauces, dressings, and seasonings, like Herbed Ranch Dressing or Spicy Cajun Mayo, and then heads into the main dishes. From breakfasts like Strawberry-Peanut Butter Parfaits and Chocolate-Coconut Muffins to light meals and side dishes, this cookbook has you covered. Bacon and Balsamic Chicken Wraps? Yes please. Cinnamon Donuts? Sign me up! And the best part is, they are all wheat-free and made with wholesome, healthy ingredients that nourish your body instead of harming it.

Best of all, not only are the recipes quick to make, but the ingredient lists are short and filled with easy-to-recognize foods that you already have in your pantry and fridge. You won’t have to run out to the store halfway through making the Barbecue Bacon-Wrapped Chicken – you’ll have everything you need at your fingertips. After all the delicious recipes (are you drooling yet?), William Davis lays out some great themed menu plan ideas for fun nights filled with good food and close friends. Try his Tex Mex Night, Sunday Brunch ideas, or Pub Night – you’ll love the food and the good times had by all.
