Book Nook: Cookbooks from FlavCity – Keto Meal Prep and 5-Ingredient Cooking

Bobby and Dessi Parrish of FlavCity are featured on the Motherhood Moment Blog for 5 Ingredient Semi-Homemade Meals and Keto Meal Prep book reviews.

I recently had a chance to review two new cookbooks from Mango Publishing written by Bobby and Dessi Parrish of FlavCity.

FlavCity’s 5 Ingredient Meals: 50 Easy & Tasty Recipes Using the Best Ingredients from the Grocery Store

What I loved most about this cookbook is that you don’t need a huge ingredient list – in fact, many of the recipes were based around ingredients I often have on hand. The book included snacks and dinner ideas, all written in a way that new cooks will understand, and more experienced cooks will still find a few new dishes to add variety. Plus, there are tips about grocery shopping, to make it easier and less overwhelming for the new cook. 

Each of the 50 recipes are healthy and only take five ingredients. The book shows how to combine store-bought and fresh items for flavorful meals that can be cooked by anyone.

Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity: 125+ Low Carb Recipes That Actually Taste Good


I don’t follow a keto diet, but a lot of these recipes still looked good. The low-carb recipes in this book are appetizing and appropriate for any skill level. For those following a keto diet, it contains detailed macros and carb counts, meal prep tips, allergen information, and more.

125+ Low Carb Recipes That Actually Taste Good (Keto Cookbook, Keto Diet Recipes, Keto Foods, Keto Dinner Ideas)

Keto and meal prep are both trending very strong now, and FlavCity is positioned as a food authority in this space. Good content always wins out, and the authors’ keto meal prep content is top class and presented in a personal way that ensures the casual consumer will choose the book over others. FlavCity is about Bobby and Dessi, two passionate home cooks who just want to hook you up with tasty, healthy recipes. Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity will have a total of 75 recipes, but one can argue that since many of the meal prep recipes contain 1-2 recipes each, it’s really so many more. Keto Meal Prep by FlavCity will be organized by breakfast, lunch, and dinner but also by the various proteins featured. Each recipe will have headnotes and 1-2 photos. The book will also have a dietary restriction chart that will easily identify each recipe as GF, DF, Paleo, etc.
