Cooking for a Fast Metabolism: Eat More Food and Lose More Weight

Haylie Pomroy. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, $28 (288p) ISBN 978-0-358-16028-1
Nutritionist Pomroy follows up her popular Fast Metabolism Diet with more appetizing recipes featuring superfoods that she argues speeds up metabolism and can help people lose weight. She urges readers to avoid “metabolism killers” (notably wheat and alcohol) and replace them with “metabolism-boosting foods” such as fresh fruits and vegetables. The dozens of enticing recipes vary in flavor and don’t feel restricting; lemon-cranberry bread uses almond and coconut flours, taco lime shrimp salad is served with spelt tortillas, and beef lo mein features brown rice vermicelli noodles. There are also recipes that satisfy rich cravings, such as crab-stuffed bell peppers with safflower mayonnaise, white chicken chili (for which the sour cream is made from cashews), and mushroom soup thickened with a coconut cream. Some readers might forgo options that prioritize healthiness over flavor, such as a cauliflower mash breakfast bowl or crunchy broccoli and apple chicken salad, but they will appreciate much of the helpful advice (a 30-Day meal plan, for example). This is a great resource for readers who want to make healthier food choices but don’t want to be stuck with bland meals. (Apr.)
