Indispensable Fast-Friendly Food Guide for All
When I received this book, I practically read it cover-to-cover within days and I immediately started making recipes from it (all with great success). It features a concise and very useful intro and first part with valuable spiritual, meal-planning, and recipe inspiration. The recipe instructions thorough and clear, great for someone like myself with somewhat inept cooking abilities.
I'm in my first years of learning to cook as a parent for my small family and I also have multiple dietary restrictions. Preparing fast-friendly food has always been a guessing-game with many kitchen failures because I can't eat many of the oft-used meat/dairy alternatives in vegan recipes.
When I read the book description and noticed that dietary restrictions and food budgets are discussed, I was thrilled. I am so pleased with how thoroughly these topics are addressed, particularly food restrictions. This book contains gluten free, nut free and nightshade free recipes and recipe options. Furthermore, so many recipes are soy free, which is amazingly fantastic in a vegan world where tofu is so prominently used, yet it is something I cannot eat.
This book is such a blessing in my life right now and I'm sure it will be a great resource and help through other fasts in the future.
The only thing I want to add that I did not see mentioned is the wonderful process of sprouting legumes, nuts and grains. I've found great digestive and flavorful joy from sprouting as many fast-friendly food ingredients as possible (beans, lentils, chickpeas, nuts, rice, etc.) This extra step may not be for everyone (takes a bit more prep time) but as one who heartily struggles with digesting legumes, sprouting allows me to consume even more bean-filled fasting dishes (well, sprouting AND fermenting things too).
Thank you Mrs. Naasko and all others who contributed to making this book available. May God grant you many years!
