Read for Fun (Purchased) Overall Rating: 3.50 InstaThoughts: I picked this up because I love meal planning and wanted some healthy food prep I could do. I don’t have a gall bladder so part of the book was lost on me. That being said I really liked the look of the recipes and that they walked people through the prep. The menu that they have for each week is detailed with what to pick up and how to cook it. That was brilliantly done! I also loved the broth recipes (beef broth rocks-it is the only one that I have made). Will I do a stash plan week? Maybe but I need to plan around my dislike of beets and turkey. Overall pretty good recipes and stretches! #bookshots via Instagram http://ift.tt/2dPDy9K INSTAREVIEWS: Quick reviews of my personal books that I post on Instagram and eventually make it to the blog!

First Thought when Finished: I think The Whole 30 would appeal to those with an expanded veggie/meat pallet and would be easy to follow. For me though there just wasn’t enough variety to stick to long term.
Hungry Girl 200 under 200 Calories by Lisa Lillien: There were a ton of good tips in this book. I also enjoyed the creative uses of many different ingredients. This book had a little too many tofu recipes for me (I just can’t handle the texture) so too many of them I could not try. I would suggest this book to anyone who likes to try new things. Do not forget for those of us on WW, the points totals are listed on her website. Author Website: http://www.hungry-girl.com/meet/index.php
Weight Watchers New Complete Cookbook by WW: I actually picked up this cookbook a couple of weeks ago and while I never thought I would “read” a whole cookbook, I have managed to do just that with this one. I am currently trying the recipes that I think would appeal to me and there are tons to choose from. The layout is simple and the instructions are easy to follow. You can look up things by point value (in the back), by course (table of contents), or just flip through and look at the wonderful pictures in the book. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who has recently started WW!
