From Publishers Weekly

May 25, 2015 – The Hartwigs (It Starts with Food) are certified sports nutritionists and the creators of the Whole30 program, a regimen designed to transform how readers think about food, their bodies, and their lives. Their new book offers step-by-step guidance to help readers implement the Whole30 plan. The key to the success of their plan, the Hartwigs state, is the complete elimination of foods and beverages such as peanuts, soy, milk, and grains. The benefits, they claim, are significant, including restoring hormonal balance, regulating blood sugar, and eliminating the symptoms of inflammation. They offer a timeline that describes each stage of the Whole30 right through to the reintroduction of some off-plan foods. They also offer an informative FAQ section and help readers through the pitfalls of dining out and traveling. The second half of the book is devoted to recipes, including stuffed peppers and seared salmon benedict, that utilize fresh ingredients and easy cooking techniques. Their offerings for satisfying meals include braised beef brisket and grilled coconut curry chicken. Butternut squash with kale and Swiss chard, cauliflower rice, and roasted spaghetti squash highlight a robust side dish chapter. Sauces, one-pot meals, and holiday meals round out an appetizing collection that can be used on and off the plan. For those interested in trying the Whole30, this book is an invaluable guide that shouldn't be overlooked.

Customer Reviews

Where are the reviews?

I’m deciding right now to never buy anything through iBooks because the reviews are all hidden. Kindle, here I come!

Love this book

This book is both an intro to Whole30, and a Whole30 recipe book. While I know how to cook, I still found the section which details mundane cooking titles (perfect poached eggs, perfect seared chicken breast, etc.) helpful. The Hollandaise and Mayonnaise recipes are the easiest I’ve ever made. I have made walnut-crusted pork tenderloin, chili, baby back ribs with tangy bbq sauce, stuffed peppers, shepard’s pie, and a few others. I found them all pretty easy to make, and delicious. This review is of the hard-cover version I own.

Bought & paid for but can't open?!?

Waist of my money!!! Over priced trash!
