“The hardest parts of healthy eating are deciding what to make and sticking to a budget. Thankfully, Matt has distilled the essentials of healthy cooking and frugal living into one book complete with meal plans and shopping lists! Now, pizza can return to its place as a weekend treat instead of a weeknight desperation meal.” —Natalie Perry, blogger, recipe developer and photographer
“My husband and I cook for our daughter, a busy doctor, and this book is so helpful to us. It has grocery lists, methods for meal prep, and so many delicious recipes. We make the recipes, portion it out, and divide the dishes between her and ourselves. She just grabs her bag of food and goes. She often texts us with feedback on what we have prepared for her. Many times her comment is ‘life changing and amazing.’ We have variety, great flavors, and excellent nutrition, and with the week by week guide, I'm not scratching my head trying to come up with ideas. So glad we have this cookbook to help us!” —Pat Quinsey, Amazon reviewer
