From basic staples to scrumptious desserts, A World of Wisdom will take you through the seasons and show you how easy it is to follow the Word of Wisdom. 198 pages of seasonal, grain based, low animal products, whole foods recipes organized according to season. Includes a section on many ordinary and unusual grains with easy cooking directions.


Background:"A World Of Wisdom" by Amy Cox Jones is a cookbook full of recipes organized seasonally! She goes through each season, Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring (and has a year round section) and gives you recipes for meals that use foods that are in season.  Not only is this cost effective, but it also is good for you - did you know that a lot of foods provide you with certain nutrients that are needed for that time of year.  She also gives you tips on how to start eating healthier.

What I liked most: What I liked about this cook book is that I actually know what the ingredients are! Often times healthy cookbooks have all these ingredients that intimidate me.  She also uses wheat berries in some of the recipes - which is great for people without grinders.  Oh and there is a section on basics with milks, sauces, and dressings that are healthy and easy to make! Here is a recipe Amy told me was one of her family favorites (it's "healthy" for a dessert at least):

Better Than Rice Krispie Treats

1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup of almond butter
1/2 cup of peanut butter
2 teaspoons of vanilla
1/2 cup grain sweetened chocolate chips
3 1/2 cup whole grain cereal (like crispy brown rice, puffed wheat etc)

Combine honey and nut butters in a large pan and heat on low until melted.  Add vanilla.  Separately combine cereal and chocolate chips.  Pour cereal mixture into honey mixture and stir well to coat.  Pack tightly into a 7 x 11 pan, cool and cut into squares.  You may have to adjust cereal measurement to get the bar consistency just right.
