Her cookbook will get you and your family excited to eat fruits, vegetables, and grains. More importantly, Frances’ cookbook breaks down foods in fun new ways that will get your little ones beside you in the kitchen, excited to eat AND to cook!
From the Mouth of a Kid:
Mom and I choose recipes based on my favorite colors!
From the Eyes of a Parent:
Eating in Color has become my go-to cookbook for convenient, healthy and family-friendly dinners. My kids are as just excited to eat the dishes from the cookbook as I am. It’s a great way to introduce my kids to new fruits and vegetables as well as teach them about familiar fruits and vegetables. The book even includes a kitchen “cheat-sheet” of ingredients that I should always have on hand, which has proved to be unbelievably helpful on days when there’s no time to shop and I need a quick fix for dinner or lunch!
Eating in Color is divided into six color-coded chapters:
- Blues, Indigos, and Violets
- Blacks and Tans
In addition to Eating in Color, Frances Largeman-Roth has also published other cookbooks such as: The CarbLover’s Diet Cookbook, The CarbLovers Diet: Eat What You Love, Get Slim for Life, and Feed the Belly: The Pregnant Mom’s Healthy Eating Guide.
The Icing on the Cake:
Eating in Color contains 90 color-coded, family-friendly recipes such as Caramelized Red Onion, Fig Pizza, and Cran-Apple Tarte Tatin. Every recipe also contains clear preparation instructions and nutritional information.
In addition, Frances also includes healthy tips for eating and living well, and the benefits of certain foods and colors in Eating in Color.
