True Roots by Kristin Cavallari

Kristin Cavallari has changed quite a bit since her days on MTV’s Laguna Beach. Since the reality show ended in 2006, Cavallari has appeared in a number of films and television series, and she’s even starred in her own reality show, Very Cavallari. She’s also explored fashion design, and recently, she embraced her love for food and published a cookbook.

The book, entitled True Roots, aims to show readers what a “mindful kitchen” should look like. In it, Cavallari speaks about her own journey with food, emphasizing that eating healthier doesn’t need to be a painful or strenuous experience. In fact, given the right recipes, eating healthy can even be fun.

True Roots avoids pushing restrictive diets on its readers, instead highlighting the benefits of clean eating. Cavallari believes that a clean diet is the key to a happy and healthy lifestyle, and she keeps her recipes as organic and natural as possible. Throughout True Roots, Cavallari makes sure to avoid processed foods and ingredients, as they tend to cause unnecessary strain on the body.

This book is also perfect for anyone on a more limited diet, whether by choice or due to allergies. Many of the recipes Cavallari includes are dairy-free or gluten-free, utilizing alternative ingredients so that those avoiding such elements can still put together delicious and enjoyable meals. It isn’t always easy finding recipes that cater to specific nutritional needs, so True Roots is a gem in that regard.
