One cookbook and only one

After recommending Sue Gregg cookbooks as a great place to start, I was asked which one would I pick. Hard choice, but great question.

I would pick of these 3:

  • Main Dishes
  • Breakfasts
  • Meals in Minutes

My version of Main Dishes is not converted to the Nourishing Tradition style (it may be further updated now), but includes a booklet (which you could download from her site for free) that tells how to convert recipes. The other 2 are already converted. The Main dishes IS whole food--just not soaked rice. And it's got charts to help you find recipes you want (kid friendly or low fat or vegetarian or low cost). It is probably the one I'd get (I think)

The Meals in Minutes is designed to fill your freezer, but can be eaten as a regular meal too. If your interested in making ahead, I'd get this. We like pancakes for dinner, so the breakfast one helps, but it's not probably the first one I'd get b/c dinner is the big cooking meal. BUT it is probably my favorite one b/c it helped me get the soaking grain stuff down.

Maybe that will help someone else, too! Happy cooking. :)
