Looking for a delicious way to keep your New Year’s promises of healthier eating habits? Thanks to my partnership with Crown Publishing, I’ve got the inside scoop on Bobby Flay’s new recipe book BOBBY FLAY FIT: 200 Recipes for a Healthy Lifestyle along with an awesome giveaway, too… read on!
If you are like me, you are seeking a healthier lifestyle and a trimmer waistline, but you also want realistic recipes with tempting flavors to keep you on your path! That’s what I love about Bobby Flay’s new book BOBBY FLAY FIT. It’s chock full of all the dreamy recipes chef Bobby Flay is famous for delivering, practical advice and attainable ways to improve your healthy mealtime efforts.
For Flay, it’s all about balance and flavor and those are two things I try to incorporate into my lifestyle. The guide is gorgeous with vibrant photos and easy-to-follow recipes for all aspects of the day from condiments to dinner, breakfast to dessert.
I tested out two of the recipes from the book Persian Baked Omelet (page 58) and Pomegranate and Chile Glazed Pork Carnitas (page 192.) The omelet was really simple to whip up and gave me an awesome excuse to pull out my cast iron skillet in the morning, always a breakfast favorite. This one pan dish delights the taste-buds and definitely filled me up, providing a great source of fuel for the day. I also think it would be an interesting side to serve with brunch or dinner.
My favorite recipe from the book so far (that I have permission to share with you – see below) is the Pomegranate and Chile Glazed Pork Carnitas (page 192.) This is a rich, savory dish with a kick of spice and a whole lot of sass! Everyone in my family enjoyed it and though I made plenty, the leftovers were gone quite quick! It’s going to be a regular in our family favorites rotation of meals we love.
I also loved that I could adapt the recipe slightly to suit our family’s preferences. I used lettuce leaves to enjoy my portions and my sons made taco-style servings with corn tortillas. We all agreed that the flavor was exceptional and that’s a huge win for a healthier-for-you dish.
