Many have the best of intentions when it comes to eating healthy meals.

The 500 Best Healthy Recipes brings together hundreds of delicious, nutritious and healthy recipes.

Nutrition expert Lynn Roblin offers a good start. In clear, concise terms, she explains daily requirements for essential vitamins and minerals. Correct amounts of carbohydrates, fat and sodium are the focal points of good health. Roblin explains the need for maintaining the right balance of these elements in our diet. In a realistic, conversational style, she outlines a healthy eating plan.

With so many recipes, there are hundreds of appetizing, healthy meals to choose from:

  • Chunky Artichoke Dip
  • Oriental Chicken Salad with Mandarin Oranges, Snow Peas and Asparagus
  • Leg of Lamb with Pesto and Wild Rice
  • Broccoli Pesto Fettuccine
  • Black Bean, Corn and Leek Frittata
  • Beef, Macaroni and Cheese Casserole
  • Blueberry Peach Cake
  • Glazed Espresso Chocolate Cake

10 best strategies for healthy eating

  1. Eat a variety of foods.
  2. Pay attention to portion sizes; use those recommended in the food guide to control the amount of food and calories you consume.
  3. Eat more whole grains such as whole-wheat, bran and oat breads and cereals, whole-wheat pasta and brown rice to increase the fiber in your diet.
  4. Include a variety of vegetables and fruits, especially dark red, orange and green varieties, to get more antioxidant nutrients like beta carotene and lycopene.
  5. Have fruit or vegetable more often that their juice to control calories and get more fiber.
  6. Keep your meals moderate in total fat and low in saturated and trans fats to promote a healthy heart by eating low-fat dairy products, lean meats and foods prepared without added fat.
  7. Balance the amount of food you eat with the amount of physical activity you do to maintain or improve your weight.
  8. Limit your consumption of salty foods to keep your blood pressure in a healthy range.
  9. If you drink alcohol, have it moderate amounts, which may help promote a healthy heart (1 drink a day for women, 2 drinks a day for men) or eliminate it altogether, as too much alcohol is linked with liver disease and increased rates of breast cancer in women.
  10. Cut back on high-caffeine beverages, which may interfere with bone health and are dehydrating.

5.0 out of 5 stars 6 stars!! Nov. 24 2008
By J. Sernik - Published on Amazon.com
As silly as it seems, this book has really changed my life!! The recipes are so easy to follow: the ingredients are listed in a column on the left and a few easy steps on the right. They are all easy to read, easy to make and everyone of them is excellent and nutritious. I no longer have to rack my brain and spend hours researching what to cook for dinner. Thanks Lynn!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent healthy cookbook! Sept. 7 2008
By Rebecca Beckensten - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have tried at least 50 of these recipes and have had only one that was not good (black bean chicken).
Everything else is excellent and I have made several things more than once. I'm not afraid to try any of these recipes with that track record.
Even the deserts I've tried have been good!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for basic recipes Sept. 22 2010
By Succotash - Published on Amazon.com
For anyone wanting an easy-to-reference book with healthy recipes, this is it. The author has broken down the recipes into groups making it simple to flip through, and has recipes for different items in the pantry. Color pictures are scattered throughout the book. The best thing about it is the book has a varied selection of many different kinds of foods: grains & beans (chick peas, beans, couscous, barley, wild rice, etc.), salads, seafood & fish (salmon, halibut, scallops, swordfish, sole, etc.), desserts & baked goods, appetizers, vegetables & protein main dish items (lamb, chicken, beef, pork, etc.).

The beginning of the book gives a run down of healthy eating tips and info, and making good eating choices. It also gives definitions and explanations of the different nutrients found in healthy foods.

All in all, if you're looking for a basic book with simple, easy to follow healthy recipes, this pretty much fits the bill. It contains recipes for just about everything, and is indexed for quick look up.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST cook book ever Sept. 2 2012
By L. Kunz - Published on Amazon.com
I bought this cook book 4 over four years ago. I am not a lover of cook books since one can find just about anything online now. I own only 4 other cook books and I love to cook. This book and the recipes are wonderful. First, there are many recipes in here I still want to try. Second, everything I have tried except for 1 (falafel burgers) recipe I cook over and over again. Third, the recipes are filling, many under 300 calories and have helped me lose weight and maintain my weight. I am online looking for a sequel.
