Healthy Family Meals
I purchased this book for my 20 year old son who is studying to become a physical therapist. He is very health conscious. The illustrations are beautiful. The recipes are good and fairly easy to cook. Each recipe includes a nutrition analysis and includes helpful tips. I like to read cookbooks like other people read novels. This is a great one for your cookbook library. We have made a goal to try at least one new recipe each week.

Most of us know that we should consume more fruits and vegetables each week, include fish and lean meats in our diet and whole grains, while cutting back on sodium and cholesterol. Yet, at the end of each day, practice just doesn’t come into the picture. Well, here are over one hundred tasty and tempting recipes that won’t strain your budget or lead to exhaustion! Many dishes can be made ahead and simply served when the family has assembled for a meal.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It’s Greek to Me Chicken, Citrus Tilapia, Easy Stuffed Chicken and Meat Loaf Mud Pies can all be prepared in under thirty minutes. Blueberry-Apple Slushes, Chill-Out Sundae Pie, Asian Vegetable Soup and Ginger-Beef Stir Fry are a colorful feast for the eyes and Chicken Parmesan and Shrimp Tacos give dinner real pizzazz.
Each recipe is carefully detailed with caloric intake and a breakout of trans fat, sodium, cholesterol, carbs and protein included with each selection. There are also helpful hints on additional items that can be added to make each tasty dish a full meal. Stunning photographs round out this excellent cookbook. I found quite a few ideas in here myself and cannot wait to have my family try some of these recipes.
