The One-Pot Weight Loss Plan: Healthy Meals for Your Slow Cooker, Skillet, Sheet Pan, and More,
by Shelley Rael
I recently presented the book One-Pot Cooking for Two. The One-Pot Weight Loss Plan follows the same idea and is just as good.
First, I really like the structure of the book: the first part explains the weight-loss plan offered here, and then, each of the 8 chapters of part 2 presents recipes for different ways of cooking: with a blender, one bowl, a slow cooker, an electric pressure cooker, a soup pot, a Dutch oven, a casserole dish and sheet pan, or a skillet. I think this classification makes it very convenient.
The author, a dietitian, chose the one-pot approach, to make it easy (skill and time wise) for people who want to launch into or persevere in dieting. She describes a 28-day plan, with ways to make healthy meals in just a few minutes every day.
She includes simple and easy tips, for instance how to replace unhealthy foods with some that are better for you. And she adds important themes to go along with your dieting (exercise, sleep, stress issues).
The plan is organized by weeks, with a shopping list and meal plan for each day of the week. The meal plan includes Breakfast, Lunch, Snack, Dinner, and Exercise! I like that the plan inserts leftovers! There’s also a page to help you track your progress.
As for the recipes (many are vegetarian and gluten free), they definitely seem simple, and delicious! They mention the preparation and cooking time, substitutes, sometimes storage, and the calories, fat, etc., per serving.
The book ends with measurement conversions, references, and a detailed index.
VERDICT: The perfect book to easily start your dieting adventure, or to persevere in it!
