I can honestly say without exaggeration that if feels like I've been waiting my whole life for this book. I've never known what to eat for breakfast, but with this collection of recipes that are easy, healthy and delicious, that has changed forever.
You'll be amazed at how much variety there is in this smallish book. Each base recipe is followed by several variations, and there are versions for every preference, be it grain, fruit or nut. Please be aware that some but not all of the recipes call for specialty ingredients like protein powders, superfoods, etc. I have access to good groceries and I enjoy experimenting with different foods, but that may not be the case for everyone.
So far I've made two very different recipes. One was a fairly predictable combination of oats, crispy rice cereal, peanut butter and chocolate chips, a copycat recipe of one of the commercial bars. The other (which I'm eating right now and enjoying very much) is a superfoods bar, with chia seeds, flax and goji berries. Both taste great; both came together in minutes. The first called for heating a couple ingredients on the stovetop briefly; the latter requires no cooking at all. From food processor to bowl to pan, you just basically throw everything together. Pretty darn simple for a nutritious breakfast that looks and tastes like something from an upscale bakery.
I admire Camilla Saulsbury's work; I also have her muffin books and think they're great. But "Power Hungry" is on another level, because I see myself using it every single week, until I can't stand the sight of another energy bar! It's really that good. It seems like it's the book that's meant to really propel her into the spotlight...with beautiful glossy photography, nice layout and fonts, etc, it's her first really attractive book. And with the content being so good, the result is a cookbook that belongs in any kitchen. I hope people find out about "Power Hungry", because we should all be eating these energy bars instead of garbage breakfast bars from the big box groceries or overpriced ones from the health food stores.
