Book Description

Sept. 19 2011
From the team that brought you, America's #1 weight-loss and fitness site, and the 'New York Times' bestseller 'The Spark,' comes 'The SparkPeople Cookbook.' This practical yet inspirational guide, which is based on the same easy, real-world principles as the SparkPeople program, takes the guesswork out of making delicious, healthy meals and losing weight - once and for all.

Award-winning chef Meg Galvin and SparkRecipes editor Stepfanie Romine have paired up to create this collection of more than 160 satisfying, sustaining, and stress-free recipes that streamline your healthy-eating efforts. With a focus on real food, generous portions, and great flavor, these recipes are not part of a fad diet. They aren't about spending money on obscure ingredients, eliminating key components of a balanced diet, or slaving away for hours at the stove. They are about making smart choices and eating food you love to eat.

But this is more than just a collection of recipes - it's an education. The SparkPeople philosophy has always been about encouraging people to achieve personal goals with the help and support of others. And this cookbook works in the just the same way. Along with the recipes, you'll find step-by-step how-tos about the healthiest, most taste-enhancing cooking techniques; lists of kitchen essentials; and simple ingredient swaps that maximize flavor, while cutting fat and calories, plus you'll read motivational SparkPeople success stories from real members who have used these recipes as part of their life-changing transformations.

In addition, you'll find:
* Quick and tasty 'Make It a Meal' suggestions to turn every main dish into a well-balanced meal.
* Results from the SparkPeople 'Ditch the Diet' Taste Test, which proves that you don't have to eat boring and tasteless food to lose weight.
* 150 meal ideas and recipes that take 30 minutes or less to prepare - plus dozens of other, more elaborate meals for days when you have more time to cook.
* Two weeks of meal plans - with breakfast, lunch, dinner, and two snacks - all within 1,400 - 1,600 calories per day.

So whether you're a novice taking the first steps to improve your health or a seasoned cook just looking for new, healthy recipes to add to your repertoire, this cookbook is for you. Learn to love your food, lose the weight, and ditch the diet forever!

5.0 out of 5 stars Cookbook Jan. 12 2012
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I rec'vd this book at noon, sat down at the kitchen table and didn't get up until 4 p.m. This isn't just a cookbook, its an educational book. This is the best cookbook I've ever bought, I love the explanations conversion charts. They have thought of everything from leaving pages for notes to grouping the recipies into categoires such as "vegetarian" etc. I don't think anyone could be disappointed with this purchase !

I could not wait for this to be shipped so I paid full price (27$ cad) and it was worth every single penny.

The cookbook provides instructions on how to cook using techniques like sauteeing, roasting, and grilling. It includes the advantages of all of them.

It gives examples on how to menu plan and do big batch cooking!

AND -- the main purpose, how to eat lighter without giving up on flavor.
