Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

Food and diet fads come and go, but throughout its history, Eating Well magazine has maintained a singular focus: to promote the value of eating food that's both nutritionally sound and delicious. This collection of 350 recipes culled from thousands of well-tested Eating Well favorites is an excellent source of inspiration for health-minded cooks. Addressing the current conflicting weight-loss trends, Jamieson, who directs Eating Well's test kitchens, makes the case for understanding (rather than eliminating) carbohydrates or fats, and provides guidelines for how to make healthy choices. Though not intended specifically as a "diet" cookbook, the volume includes per-serving analysis of each recipe for those seeking to monitor their intake. In addition, favorite comfort foods are subjected to the "Rx for Recipes" treatment, resulting in Updated Mac and Cheese, which substitutes whole-wheat pasta and low-fat cottage cheese and adds spinach, or Fettuccine Alfredo, which incorporates 1% milk and reduced fat cream cheese instead of cream. And vegetarian selections offer interesting, flavorful choices enhanced with fresh herbs and spices. Refreshingly, the "good carbs, good fats" subtitle is really just a hook that's explored only in the book's introduction. All the recipes are relatively low in fat and carbs, but that's nothing new for Eating Well cookbooks. 16 pages of color photos not seen by PW.

Like the magazine,this is filled with scrumptious healthy recipes that have flavour and don't feel like diet food. I've made carrot cake and chocolate cake from earlier cookbooks and friens have scambled to get the recipes. Patsy does it agsin.

Excellent results - even for a beginning chef Nov. 24 2004
By Renard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I enjoy delicious, healthy foods but I have neither the time nor the will to cook every night.

Since I bought this book, I can't wait until I can try a new recipe. Each dish has prescribed preparation time broken down into actual hands-on prep time and oven time. This has simplified my life and allowed me to quickly change a menu at the last minute if I suddenly have less time to spend at the kitchen counter in the middle of my multi-tasking.

Even the recipes that I'm skeptical of turn out delicious and I find I'm craving some of the new taste combinations.

I've developed some health issues lately and this book makes me confident that I'm eating the best possible foods to help me get well.

I suppose the best thing to say about this book is that the work that goes into the recipes is well-rewarded with delicious meals.

Other recipe books are inconsistent but, with guaranteed success, I'm more prone to cook.

Excellent April 18 2005
By Rachael S. Pensiero - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I checked this book out from my library because I was getting bored with chicken breast, chicken breast, chicken breast...Trying to eat more healthfully was taking some of the joy out of cooking for me. I love to cook and I always want the things I make to be the absolute best, so substituting low-fat products and reduced calorie products always made me feel like the dish was not going to be good. Since I checked the book out a few weeks ago, I have tried several recipes and they have all been GREAT. The moroccan style chicken kabobs marinated in yogurt were especially tasty. I don't often eat muffins for breakfast, but the recipes in the book sounded so good (and nutricious) that I tried a couple. The Maple Blueberry Muffins were great, sweetened entirely with maple syrup, no white refined sugar, and with ground flax seed for extra omega-3. The Bannana muffins were also great, made with whole wheat and unprocessed wheat bran. Seriously-try them. Delicious, and each muffin has 4g of fiber. You can't beat that! I plan on purchasing this book today. I don't want to retur the borrowed copy to the library ntil I get my own. Highly recommended.

Excellent cookbook! Dec 29 2005
By Oliver - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was given to me as a gift when I first began cutting out white flour, rice and sugar from my diet. I have cooked many of the recipes and have found each to be very good. I have five children and they all enjoy and ask for many of the muffin recipes. (They especially love the banana.) I have substituted other flours in place of the white flour called for in some of the recipes with brown rice flour, etc. and they have all turned out marvelous. I have served these meals to guests, brought many things in to work and everyone agrees, they are awesome! Just today I made the black bean with brown rice and chicken wraps. They were wonderful! It is very easy to eat healthier with this cookbook. You will not regret purchasing it.

Fantastic taste, easy to find ingredients. #1 on our shelf Sept. 23 2005
By Anne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I've got a lot of cookbooks and this one ranks #1 on our list. It's got clear instructions, tasty recipes, and it appeals to a variety of taste buds--tonight we served quinoa stuffed peppers for our vegan friend, the other night edamame/feta dip. We've not had a failure yet. And we're feeding a 3 and 4 year old too. No rejections on their parts either!

Clear the shelves. Rachel Ray move over (yeah--30 minute meals using ingredients that you spend hours trying to find in the gourmet shops mega miles away).

Buy this book.

Great Cookbook for Nutritious Eating April 19 2005
By Mary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm a little bit of a cookbook junkie, and I'm always on the lookout for cookbooks that emphasize healthy recipes with whole grains, good fats, and low sugar. This book meets and exceeds all those desires. So far, I have made several recipes, and all were delicious. Recipes that I have used have inspired me to experiment based on some of the interesting combinations presented--with great results. The soup and stew recipes are wonderful. I highly recommend this--especially if you have the fear that healthy eating will taste bad, because the recipes in this book will prove you wrong.
