Book Review – Nutribullet Soup Recipe Book by Stephanie Shaw

33159927

Nutribullet Soup Recipe Book:  Low Carb Nutribullet Soup Recipes for Weight Loss, Detox, Anti-Aging & So Much More! (Recipes for a Healthy Life) (Volume 3) by Stephanie Shaw is an unusual cookbook. It’s not only about soup, or health, or nutrition (although it is about all of those things), but it is specifically about how to create delicious, healthy soups using a Nutribullet blender.

In the first two chapters of Shaw’s unique book, she lays out her case about how nutritious soups can be used for weight loss, detoxing and anti-aging. She also gives details about the health benefits of certain ingredients she uses throughout this cookbook. In the third chapter, she gives details about how to make these soups using a Nutribullet blender. These first three chapters are well researched and documented, as well as easy to understand. In the remaining seven chapters, Shaw breaks down recipes into health-affirming categories: Healthy Heart, Detoxification, Weight Loss, Healthy Skin, Energy Boost, Anti-Aging Effects and the use of Superfoods.

What I like most about Shaw’s recipes are 1) each is only for 2 servings, which means you won’t be wasting ingredients or making large pots of soup that could potentially go bad, but you could easily double or triple the ingredients for a larger family; 2) the ingredient lists are simple, usually everyday ingredients that one would have in their home; 3) there is a nutritional breakdown for each soup (calories, fat, carbohydrates and protein); and lastly, step by step explanation for making and processing the soup.

One needs to keep in mind that since you will be using a Nutribullet blender, these will be blended soups. So nothing chunky here. This is good for two reasons, the soups can be easily drank for their health benefits, and can be used for young children and the elderly whose dental health may not be formed or up to par.

Before completing my review, I wanted to try some of the recipes. I decided to make the Carrot Squash Thyme Soup (page 16) for the Healthy Heart, the Cucumber Mint Soup (page 39) for Detoxification, the Fresh Asparagus Garden Soup (page 61) for Weight Loss, and the Minestrone Soup (page 97) for Energy Boost. All of these soups were easy to make, used easy to purchase ingredients and took little to no time to make. The results were delicious and refreshing.

I did an experiment on my own by freezing the Carrot Squash Thyme Soup and the Fresh Asparagus Garden Soup, just to see what would happen if I did make a larger batch and wanted to save the soups for a later time. I froze each soup for three days, unthawed them, and heated them up on the stovetop. While they still tasted fine, they did not have the same freshness as on the day of first making them. My suggestion is to only make what you will use that day to get the optimal freshness and health benefits of the soups.

For anyone who has or plans to buy a Nutribullet and wants great soup recipes, I highly recommend this book. You will not be disappointed with the quality information given here or the well-researched and presented recipes.

Note: I was given a free copy of this book by the author for a fair and honest review.
