We Love the Sue Gregg Cookbooks


Can you tell?

Do any of y'all use Sue Gregg's cookbooks? We love her recipes and meal ideas. Her books are much more than just recipes- she has cooking tips, menu ideas, nutrition facts galore, and dollar amount per serving! Wow- so much information in one location. Here's one of our standbys-

I have that set and I love them.

I have vowed once we
get home from this trip I'm getting my act together! Which will include using those books more often!

We use the Sue Gregg cookbooks! My husband was diagnosed with prediabetes and we decided to change our diet. Her books have helped tremendously. One thing that has helped my husband with the fresh grains is the soaking. He used to have so much stomach/bowel discomfort. Now, he can eat healthy and fell good!

I enjoy your blog. My 14 year old son enjoys Stephen's blog so much.

My 11 year old daughter and I will keep reading "Seeds to Sew"!

Thanks Leslie for you encouraging words.

I've read a lot recently about soaking grains - we need to be more consistent with that.

I'll have to check out her cookbooks~
