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.

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.
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.
