Hello! I’m back today and sharing a little recipe inspiration I’m hoping to get started with soon, following on from trying out Anna Jones’ ‘A Modern Way to Eat’ book, which you can catch up on here. Madeleine Shaw’s ‘Get the Glow’ is my next cook book of choice and I’m setting myself a goal to try out five of her recipes in the next couple of months.
I’d never heard of Madeleine Shaw or ‘Get the Glow’ until my sister was given her book for Christmas. Flicking through the recipe ideas I was quite taken by it; there’s a great feeling when you look over a book and think “yep, I’d cook that, and that, and that” etc.
The tagline of the book is “100 delicious and easy recipes that will nourish you from the inside out” and the theme of healthy living runs throughout. Oh no, another health conscious book, I hear you cry. But even if you’re bored of that side of things, you can stick to just the recipes and the meals that take your fancy. If healthy living is why you’re buying the book, Madeleine includes a six week programme. Those six weeks include themes to ditch the junk, beat the bloat and a whole lot more. I’m opting to skip that for now and just try the recipes I like the look of.
Similar to Anna Jones’ book, where do you begin when there’s lots you want to try? I again have decided to opt for 5 recipes from 5 individual sections and plan to share my review of each of them with you in June time. That way I can give you an accurate review, plus knowing I’ve talked about it on here will really encourage me to use the book before I give it back to my sister.
Sections from Get the Glow I’m starting with:
- Soups and light salads
- Speedy suppers
- Sweet treats
Recipes from Get the Glow I’ll be trying:
- Three-ingredient banana chia pudding
- Seedy energy bars
- Smoked salmon and fattoush salad with avocado mash
- Buckwheat, asparagus and pea risotto
- Banana and cinnamon loaf
I’m particularly excited to try to the risotto and those seedy energy bars, so I’ll be sure to report back.
Any recipes take your fancy? Or any good cook books you want to shout about? Do tell!
