The Trim Healthy Mama Cookbook is packed full of recipes in a variety of categories.  It also has recipes that will work work for one of two people or that will feed a crowd.  The recipes are well written with easy to follow directions and there are color photos throughout the cook book.  In the front of the cook book you will find a brief introduction to the plan and explanations of some of the specialty ingredients, but it is recommended that you first read Trim Healthy Mama in order to get the most out of the book.

The biggest challenge to using the cookbook is that although they say that you do not need to go out and buy a lot of specialty ingredients (these recipes in the book are labeled NSI), many of the recipes do need specialty ingredients that may be hard to substitute especially if you live in a small town with only one grocery store.  Trim Healthy Mama sells the ingredients on their website. They do list a few ingredients that they feel are the best to start out with: on plan sweetener, Trim Healthy Mama Baking Blend, Pristine Whey Protein, and Just Gelatin but it will require a bit of an investment for even the basics.
