Review: The $7 a Meal Healthy Cookbook

The Bikini Chef, Susan Irby, has just published another $7 a Meal cookbook.  The $7 a Meal Healthy Cookbook (Adams Media) features over 300 nutritious, healthy recipes that you and your family will love.  Irby is a cheflebrity who has cooked with the likes of Todd English and Robert Irvine and for the likes of Patrick Swayze, Baby Face Edmonds and Katey Segal.  In this 332 page guide she teaches you how to cook like a celebrity chef without blowing your budget or your diet.

Irby starts the reader off with two very informative chapters on the basic elements of good nutrition and living a healthy lifestyle.  Topics she is well versed in since she has cooking Bikini Cuisine since she was a child.  What is Bikini Cuisine? According to the chef-author-TV star it is “figure-flattering flavors.”

After the two instructional chapters, Irby then embarks on the 13 recipe filled chapters.  She starts off with breakfast (the most important meal of the day) then rolls through appetizers, salads, soups, entrées featuring proteins that fly, walk and swim.  There are chapters for vegetarians, on sandwiches and even desserts.  No stone is left uncovered.  Each recipe is broken down with a chart that details prep time, cook time, total cost, calories, fat, protein, cholesterol and sodium content.
