Praise for WHOLE30 FRIENDS & FAMILY
Urban (The Whole30), cocreator and CEO of the Whole30 program, offers a wealth of appetizing recipes for those who have adopted the Whole30 diet and struggle with cooking for crowds. The dishes, organized by occasion, consist of options for, among other events, weeknight family meals, potlucks, and special get-togethers and allow followers, Urban writes, to indulge, stick to the plan (eliminating sugar, grains, legumes, and dairy), and not feel cheated. In most cases, guests wouldn’t even realize these recipes are part of a meal plan, with such winning dishes as mustard and coriander-crusted pork tenderloin with tangy apple-mustard compote (“Date Night”); citrusy watermelon strawberry shortcakes (“Kid’s Birthday Party”); crisp prosciutto-topped deviled eggs (“Study Group”); chilled coconut–almond butter bananas (“Kid-friendly Family Dinner”); and lime-garlic hot wings with green chili sauce (“Game Day”). Most recipes are made with ingredients that home cooks will easily find in the supermarket. This treasure trove is suitable for any number of large gatherings of people, Whole30 adherent or not.
