Trisha Yearwood is set to release her third cookbook, Trisha’s Table: My Feel-Good Favorites For A Balanced Life, which will be released March 31, 2015 (Clarkson Potter). The new work offers recipes with healthier ingredients, as well as recipes similar to those found in Yearwood’s previous cookbooks, Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen (2008), and Home Cooking with Trisha Yearwood (2010).
Among the recipes found in Trisha’s Table are dairy-free Angel Hair Pasta with Avocado Pesto, vegetarian Smashed Sweet Pea Burgers, Edamame Parmesan, as well as comfort foods such as Slow Cooker Georgia Pulled-Pork Barbecue, and Chicken Tortilla Casserole.
Yearwood penned the book with sister Beth Yearwood Bernard, and it includes a foreword by Garth Brooks. In the past couple of years, Yearwood has emphasized a healthy lifestyle, and debuted a slimmed down physique at the 48th annual Academy of Country Music awards.
Now she’s sharing some healthier recipes with fans.
“I still agree with the famous quote ‘everything in moderation, including moderation,’ but I have adopted an 80/20 rule when it comes to my delicate relationship with food: 80 percent of the time I make good choices; 20 percent of the time I let myself splurge a little,” Yearwood writes in the book’s introduction.
She continues, “Growing up enjoying my parents’ and grandparents’ comfort food taught me early on about taste. It was always hard for me to go on a traditional diet because I had been led to believe I had to sacrifice flavor to shed a few pounds, so that effort never lasted very long. This girl likes food! I am not one of those people who gets so busy with my day that I suddenly think to myself, “Wow, I forgot to eat lunch!” That never happens to me. Never. I think about food all the time, so making peace with eating is a daily battle for me. I won’t say I’ve completely figured it out, but I will say that right now, I win that battle more days than I lose it, and I believe that’s the key.”
