Flipping through A Good Food Day by Marco Canora with Tammy Walker is like having time with your healthy friend. You know the one, they eat and live like they want to do what's best for their body, shunning the Dorito's and Oreo's. It's everything I aspire to be.
Marco shares his story with the reader and you quickly learn that this man was once like the rest of us, overweight and out of shape, and heading down a slippery slope to bad health. He realized that he needed to change his habits, particularly his eating habits, and has been on a quest for good food and good health ever since.
This book is a delight to the eyes. Lots of good recipes in here, but also many tips on what to eat to be your best.
The recipes are not hard, though some are time-consuming, they are for every level of cook whether you're a beginner or an expert.
He even makes Brussels sprouts look good with his garlicky Brussels sprouts recipe.
There are several sections, each devoted to different foods (seen below).
I'm particularly anxious to try the roasted carrots with millet and mint-pistachio pesto and the Japanese chicken and rice soup.
