Summary (from Goodreads):

Sustainable and conscious eating made simple, fun, and delicious—the founder of Impatient Foodie shows how the “slow food” movement doesn’t have to be slow with these inspired meals perfect for everyone.

Elettra Wiedemann didn’t set out to be a foodie. At twenty-eight, with a burgeoning global modeling career and a Master’s degree from the London School of Economics, she understood the larger impact of her food choices, and the importance of a more conscious way of life. But whenever she walked into her apartment after a twelve-hour work day, all her ideals about food would collapse. Why did being a foodie mean you have to labor for hours using obscure cooking methods and ingredients? Why did good food always go hand-in-hand with slowing down? Wasn’t there a way to have slow, sustainable, delicious food without the “slow”?

Impatient Foodie bridges the gap between the ideals of the organic, slow food movement and the realities of a busy life. Loaded with shortcuts, pantry lists, and more than one hundred handy and delicious recipes for busy people, this vividly illustrated, easy-to-navigate cookbook shows how to get the most out of your meals in the least amount of time. Organized by ingredient to minimize grocery store trips and maximize seasonality, Impatient Foodie offers easy ways to spin off kale, chicken, fish, berries, and more into multiple meals, and offers home cooks a variety of inspiring vegetarian and vegan options. Unique, friendly, and entertaining, The Impatient Foodie provides the ideal foundation for thoughtful eating in a hectic, time-starved world. With her immensely popular Impatient Foodie blog, her profile at Refinery29, her degree in biomedicine, and her stunning beauty and charm, Elettra Wiedemann is the perfect spokesperson for this reassuring and helpful message.
