Blog Tour w/ #GIVEAWAY and #Review to June 6th of "The Family Table: Whole Grain Pancake and Baking Mix" by Leah Borski

Leah Borski, The Author of The Family Table: Whole Grain Pancakes and Baking Mix

About her:
Leah Borski is a family nutrition specialist and health coach whose passion is helping busy families with easy healthy meal solutions. She shares simple strategies and family-friendly recipes at her internationally recognized blog and website, as well as insight into some of the challenges and triumphs she's experienced as a work-at-home mom of two and military wife who is determined to provide a healthier lifestyle for her own family.
Her debut publication, the highly acclaimed "Eat to Beat Stress: 10 Super Foods to Prevent Major Symptoms of Stress," showcases several of her recipes as tantalizing tools for busting life's most prevalent stressors, offering a preview of her streamlined methods for creating single meals that satisfy the whole family.
She currently teaches "Kids in the Kitchen" healthy cooking classes in her local community, promoting nutrition education in a fun environment for parents and kids, and aspires to collaborate with local and national organizations to promote family nutrition and wellness in conjunction with authoring and publishing “The Family Table Cookbook” series of recipe/meal planning books.

About the Family Table Cookbook:
"The Family Table Cookbook: Whole Grain Pancake & Baking Mix" combines the superior nutrition of whole grains, fruits, and veggies with the convenience of a simple mix to create wholesome breakfasts, craveable snacks, fun lunchbox treats, and decadent desserts for family members of all ages.
If the phrase ‘whole grain baking’ translates for you as ‘dense, dull, and time-consuming,’ it’s time to try this fresh approach with one versatile mix that’s used to make all of the fluffy pancakes, moist and flavorful muffins, aromatic quick breads, and delectable sweet treats in this book.
This convenient mix is made with easy-to-find ingredients and provides a simple solution for time-crunched families who need an inexpensive alternative to packaged whole grain mixes and a smart method for providing homemade. Loaded with the powerful benefits of hearty whole grains, every recipe reduces harmful fats and eliminates processed sugar by incorporating smaller amounts of natural sweeteners which are lower on the glycemic index.
Weary parents longing for a fuss-free way to get their families to eat healthier, especially those with babies new to solid foods or children who are at varied developmental stages, will find relief with the section of multipurpose Power Purees. Providing natural sweetness and a nutritional boost for many of the recipes in this book, these purees can also be served as individual or combo baby foods and as healthy additions to snacks for kids and adults of all ages. Simple, concise instructions take the guesswork out of providing healthy family meals and snacks.

My Take:
5 Stars!
This is a really good cookbook full of healthy recipes. At a time when we are on the run so much in life, this book shows what we can do to make something that it healthy for ourselves and the family in not much time, either. From the base mix you can go on to make other things with it. It definitely shows how a busy family 'can' take the time to eat healthy. It has delicious sounding recipes and they are presented beautifully! The photos taken make your mouth water! I know this because I was provided a copy by the publisher for review purposes.
