Take Your Health to the Next Level with Simple Craveable Recipes

We all want to make and eat delicious, healthy food—but with so much misinformation out there what does it really mean to eat well? With What to Cook, Why to Eat It, culinary instructor and board-certified holistic nutritionist Carrie Bonfitto has solved that problem. 

In her cooking classes and in her debut cookbook, Bonfitto is beloved for her freshly sourced, quick to make recipes that taste even better than they look. What to Cook, Why to Eat It guides you through the health benefits of familiar ingredients and then distills all the information into inspiring and comforting dishes, including options for guilt-free desserts, vital dinners, power-packed lunches and more. Using the most important nutrition facts and cooking basics, you’ll learn to whip up vibrant veggies, grass fed meats, and sustainable seafood into stress-free dinners like Energy Boost Salad, Cauliflower Chickpea Curry, and Zucchini Noodles with Ultimate Tomato Sauce or create easy decadent snacks with options like, Chocolate Banana Nut Ice Cream, Goat Cheese and Pecan Bites, or Scarlett Mocktails.

A true roadmap for anyone who wants to start a new way of living and eating, What to Cook, Why to Eat It helps you apply the “food as medicine” approach to your health with meals that never sacrifice taste.

Health Facts

Nestled between the recipes, you’ll get pages of solid information about why you should choose these ingredients for your recipes. And most importantly, why certain foods will help you cut cravings, improve digestion, regulate blood sugar, and make you feel lighter, more energized, and vital.

Real-life Recipes

The recipes aren’t fancy and the cooking techniques are easy to master. I’ve worked to keep them low-carb, low-gluten, and low-dairy (without sacrificing taste) as this combination works well for weight loss and wellness. You’ll find delicious options for every meal of the day! 

Heal Your body
Stabilize Your Moods
Lose that Weight!
Enjoy Eating!

“Mindfully composed, accessible, and inspired What to Cook, Why to Eat It is primer for anyone looking to educate themselves about the value of whole foods at home!  The recipes are familiar and yet also exotic.”
