Cookbook Giveaway - Fresh and Roots

We have two great books in our contest today. First, Fresh: Simple, Delicious Recipes to Make You Feel Energized! by Donal Skehan which delivers healthy, fresh recipes that are as nourishing and energizing as they are delicious. Television and YouTube sensation, Skehan, believes in maximizing health and energy through the enjoyment of flavorful, nutrient-packed food. And the second title, Roots (Superfoods for Life series): The Complete Guide to the Underground Superfood by Stephanie Pedersen which shares 75 delicious and nutritious recipes for root vegetables. From the humble potato to beets, carrots, and yucca, root vegetables are packed with nutrients, vitamins, and antioxidants. Plus, they're easy to prepare, readily available, inexpensive, and a treat to eat. For more information on these books please  see our review post,  which shares two recipes - one from each title.

We are pleased to offer three sets of these titles to our EYB Members in the US. One of the entry options is to answer the following question in the comments section of this blog post.

    I love all the unsung root vegetables -- so I do Root Vegetables first.

  • lpatterson412  on  6/12/2017 at 5:07 PM

    I believe I would cook from "Fresh: Simple, delicious recipes to make you feel energized first"! Tough to say for sure though!

  • tapeitzman  on  6/12/2017 at 5:53 PM

    Cilantro and sesame fishcakes with spiralized Thai salad

  • lauriesk  on  6/12/2017 at 7:14 PM

    I would cook from the Roots cookbook first. I love root vegetables.

  • ravensfan  on  6/12/2017 at 9:03 PM


  • southerncooker  on  6/12/2017 at 9:04 PM

    I'd love to cook from both of these but I'm more excited about Fresh since my daughter loves watching his youtube show and I've watched with her.

  • jr0717  on  6/12/2017 at 10:48 PM

    Tough choice! But I think that Roots would have to be first, as it aligns best with what I have in my fridge on a regular rotation. It'd be great for weeknight meals, with Fresh being a great adventure for the weekends.

  • JanScholl  on  6/13/2017 at 12:03 AM

    Roots-love beets and rutabaga and that sort of veggie.

  • hedder14  on  6/13/2017 at 6:53 AM

    Fresh, I love Donal. I'm so glad he's starting to get the recognition here in the States..

  • dbielick  on  6/13/2017 at 7:00 AM


  • lhudson  on  6/13/2017 at 7:05 AM


  • daniellespinato1  on  6/13/2017 at 7:52 AM

    These both sound great but I'm definitely intrigued by the Roots book -- we've had quite a beet harvest this year!

  • Siegal  on  6/13/2017 at 11:31 AM

    I love root veggies! Would do that book first

  • melmaren  on  6/13/2017 at 2:39 PM

    Both sound lovely, but I think I'd like to try Fresh first!

  • lebarron2001  on  6/14/2017 at 10:36 AM

    I would cook from Fresh first.

  • FJT  on  6/14/2017 at 8:29 PM

    I would like to try Fresh first. I've seen some of Donal Skehan's cookery programmes when I've been back in the UK but Ive never tried his recipes.

  • sarahawker  on  6/16/2017 at 1:29 PM

    Roots, my CSA bounty is overflowing.

  • PennyG  on  6/16/2017 at 5:38 PM

    They both look like really interesting reads. I'll say Fresh.

  • cocecitycook  on  6/17/2017 at 6:29 AM

    I'm a fan of root vegetables!

  • mpdeb98  on  6/17/2017 at 8:25 AM

    Fresh but both look great!

  • JenJoLa  on  6/17/2017 at 8:56 PM

    Both look interesting but I'd have to choose Roots. I have a bunch of new-to-me root vegetables growing in the garden that I'm going to need recipes for.

  • Uhmandanicole  on  6/27/2017 at 2:08 AM

    I can't decide. Both cookbooks look delicious. Maybe Roots

  • abihamm  on  6/27/2017 at 5:42 PM


  • Teruska  on  6/28/2017 at 7:45 AM

    Roots, I think for sure. ;-) We often get roots that most don't recognize from our CSA. It is always nice to share possible recipes and cookbooks with our members.

  • stephlinde  on  6/29/2017 at 2:30 PM

    Roots - for more local cooking for the long Minnesota winter.

  • ohjodi  on  6/29/2017 at 9:58 PM

    I want to learn how to cook more root vegetables, especially the "unusual" ones. My goal is to eat more filling veggies, and I don't care for greens at all. Thank you!

  • laineylx  on  6/29/2017 at 10:47 PM

    I grow a lot of root vegetables so I would try the ROOTS book first.

  • Julia  on  6/30/2017 at 10:21 AM

    I think I would start with Fresh but would then look for a complimentary side in Roots.

  • Lafauvette  on  6/30/2017 at 1:47 PM

    Roots. I love root vegetables.

  • Katiefayhutson  on  7/1/2017 at 12:10 PM

  • bonita7878  on  7/7/2017 at 4:36 PM

    My kids would go for Roots first ~ they are far from being unsung heroes in my household :-)

  • lolako  on  7/7/2017 at 9:13 PM


  • Dmartin997  on  7/8/2017 at 12:09 AM

    I love root vegetables so probably roots.

  • BethFishReads  on  7/8/2017 at 6:12 AM

    Roots -- I adore root vegetables and am always looking for new ways to serve them. Bring on the beets!

  • jessncanfield  on  7/8/2017 at 5:57 PM


  • annieski  on  7/9/2017 at 6:53 AM

    sweet potato and black bean wraps sound delicious

  • Karla123  on  7/12/2017 at 6:11 AM

    "Roots" I love underground superfoods.

    Fresh would be my first choice.

  • oleslbswins4756  on  7/16/2017 at 9:56 PM

    Fresh but would definitely be cooking from both considering this diet that's about to happen starting July 31st ~ This would definitely help with a jump start! Thanks for the chance! These both look great!!!

  • donnak4  on  7/16/2017 at 9:58 PM

    I. Think roots but the other one is nice to. I'd like to cook healthy for my baby boy :)
