My Savvy Review of Holly Clegg’s trim&TERRIFIC KITCHEN 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence Cookbook

It is no secret to anyone that knows me that I have been on a health and wellness journey for about 2 years now after a serious health scare. It is also no secret that because of that health scare, I have changed the way that my family and I eat. I no longer purchase processed foods that are loaded with so much of the bad and have turned to eating more organic fruits and vegetables as well as leaner cuts of meats. I cook everything for my family now as the meals are fresher, healthier and extra delicious. Gone are the days of eating out too because… have you taken a look at the nutritional values of the foods that many of these well known restaurants serve you? Yikes!?! it is pretty scary and the reason I jumped at the chance to review Holly Clegg’s trim&TERRIFIC KITCHEN 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence Cookbook. This wonderful cookbook is packed full of the cooking basics plus 150 easy healthy recipes that will help me to up my flavor factor when creating delicious meals for my family.
