I was so excited to launch this new book in November, I never got around to blogging about it! Thanks to instagram, you’ve been purchasing and reviewing and sharing… sending me so many amazing messages… thank you so much for all of the love and support! Now my goal in 2021 is to get back to updating things over here. The blog has been a bit neglected. And this new one-dish labor of love needs to be documented.
If you’re new here, I create macro-friendly cookbooks! But I also love to keep this blog updated with free recipes. But that’s been hard to do while trying to finish “ONE” so I’m so happy to be done, and see it out in the world, being used like crazy in your homes!
Ok so I’m excited to get back to sharing content over here. But I’m not sure anything will ever compare to the ease of opening up a book in your kitchen, following the recipe, and then logging your quantity directly from My Fitness Pal. (For the macro-counters of course.)
“One” A Healthy Twist on Single-Dish Comforts
This new book is the third of my macro-friendly cookbooks. It focuses on delicious, comforting, yet still healthy meals that are essentially served from one dish. You’ll find a handful of favorite lightened up sauces and dressings, plus 56 recipes that are ideal for feeding the whole family, but also PERFECT for meal prep.
Just like the Lillie Eats and Tells cookbook and the Crunchwrap Book, every recipe has the macronutrients not only included in the book, but pre-loaded into both the My Fitness Pal and Lose It apps to simplify your macro-counting experience.
A handful of the recipes are tried and true favorites from the blog, some have been leaked here and there on my instagram page or here on the blog for thorough testing and perfecting, and several others are making their debut.
Here are a few examples of what you’ll find in “ONE”:
- White Chicken Chili
- Philly Cheesesteak Skillet
- Egg Roll Bowl
- Chicken Pot Pie Soup
- Creamy Cauliflower Spaghetti Squash Casserole
- Crustless Quiche
- Stacked Chicken and Cauliflower Enchiladas
- Creamy Spinach Artichoke Chicken Bake
- Greek Chicken Souvlaki and Roasted Red Peppers
- Blackened Salmon and Veggies
- Bruschetta-Topped Tilapia with Roasted Cauliflower
- Almost Classic Cottage Cheese Chicken Salad
- Shrimp Ceviche Salad
- Jalapeño-Avocado Dressing
- Creamy Chimichurri
But here’s a comprehensive list of contents! The book is broken up into six sections.
In POTS you’ll see all of the soups and chilis you need to get you through the Fall and Winter, along with a DELICIOUS but simple, staple weeknight bolognese and pork ragu to serve over pasta or a lower carb option like spaghetti squash. Family favorites all winter over here! All of the meals in this section are PERFECT for prepping ahead, freezing, or taking to a friend.
Pans will give you a variety of delicious dinners cooked in ONE skillet. All of these come together very quickly on the stove top, and a couple are finished off in the oven. ALL of them are so tasty, comforting, and served from one dish!
The dishes are another term for casseroles! Creamy, comforting, and yet TOTALLY MACRO-FRIENDLY. Like even LARGE-portioned servings. My M.O. The stacked enchiladas, and the deconstructed butternut enchiladas have been big hits! As wells as the creamy cauliflower spaghetti squash and cheesy broccoli chicken and “rice”casseroles. You’ll be cozy, full, AND crushing goals. I’m serious guys.
These are your sheet pan dinners. You’ll see lots roasted veggies, easy quick chicken, salmon, pork. Stick your large sheet pan in the oven, clean up the kitchen. Dinner is a BREEZE.
This is my salad section! Macro friendly family-sized salads, which means you can choose one when you’re serving a crowd. But serve yourself a portion and log it if you like! You’ll also find a few favorite bowls written for just one. These ones will be easy to multiply if you’d like it to feed your whole family!
In the JARS section, you’ll find my favorite and essential sauces! It’s amazing what a good sauce or condiment can do for a meal. But it’s also amazing how quickly they can add up if you’re not careful. I’m all about indulgence when it’s worth it. But I don’t want to spend all of my fun on my salad or roasted veggies… but that doesn’t mean I don’t want them to be DELICIOUS.
The digital copy can be downloaded immediately after purchase and saved to your books or kindle app for easy viewing. The print copy will be a spiral bound, paperback that can lay open flat on your kitchen counter while you use the heck out of it. xo
For the Macro Counters
This book, along with my other two, are meant for anyone who who appreciates higher protein, veggie-packed, healthy, balanced, delicious recipes. If you count macros, they’ll be especially life-changing. Said as humbly as possible.
Macro-counting can be so exciting if you’re feeling good and seeing progress. But it can also be SO SO time consuming if you want or hope for any variety in the kitchen. Planning, calculating, and measuring your food can be too much to sustain! But so can chicken and broccoli every night.
Each recipe from this book (and my others) has been pre-loaded into My Fitness Pal by the gram. This means that you can follow the directions for a spaghetti squash bake, clean up, pull it out of the oven, and dish yourself the 400 gram bowl you already logged ahead (simply go to your diary and search the title as I clarify on each book-recipe.) And if you don’t want it all, you can adjust in to 300. Still hungry? Log 600. It’s up to you.
