New Cookbook Alert!

Posted on August 12, 2016

I love me a new cookbook! Add to that it’s written by a fellow Dietitian AND a friend AND we share a name…pretty spectacular combination if I do say so myself!

Enter “World Food for Student Cooks: Healthy, delicious, easy-to-make dishes for the food-truck-loving, noodle-slurping, taco-crunching, mac-n-cheese-loving student.” This cookbook is full of healthy, tasty and budget friendly recipes that are targeted at those with basic entry level cooking skills. Student or non-student alike, your bellies will be happy!

Now this little geIMG_4570m of a cookbook isn’t out in the bookstores yet; however, you can pre-order it HERE. We have had the special opportunity to preview and test a few of the recipes…yum!

The kid’s team at Bent Fork Nutrition had first choice of the recipes…Best Banana Muffins for the win!
