Overview

Author of the Healthy Exchanges Cookbook has created more than 170 easy and delicious recipes to help you feel your best, maintain your health, and build a positive attitude while managing your arthritis.

Fruits, vegetables, and a good dose of light exercise are important for anyone’s health. But did you know that in the right amounts they can also lessen or even prevent the pain of arthritis? During the development of her Healthy Exercises program, JoAnna Lund has found a way to give control back to the arthritis sufferer—by creating a wide variety of fare guaranteed to tempt the palate and satisfy the biggest appetites, while still being low in fat and sugar.

Plan your menus from this wide array of down-home recipes, like Creamy Corn Chowder, Pepper Pork Tenders with Rice, and Honey Slaw Salad.  Then enjoy a luscious, no-guilt treat, like Black Forest Cheesecake, Peach-Blueberry Pie, or Mocha-Mint Cake.  Also included are charts listing foods high in vitamins that have been determined to improve resistance to arthritis symptoms. With JoAnna’s Arthritis Healthy Exchanges Cookbook, you can eat well and live healthier, happier, and in control.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Lund, well known for books like The Diabetic's Healthy Exchanges Cookbook (GK Hall, 1997) as well as her TV show Help Yourself with JoAnna Lund, has now adapted her recipes to the arthritic. Being overweight often leads to arthritis, and Lund, overweight herself, found she could alleviate some of her arthritic problems with changes in diet. Her recipes are basically intended to keep down fat, calories, and cholesterol, and she follows the guidelines of the American Dietetic Association. She also notes which recipes freeze well. Included are soups, vegetables, salads, main dishes, desserts, and miscellaneous items, such as dressings, biscuits, and muffins. Although she gives the food exchanges necessary for a diabetic, some will not agree with her use of NutrasweetTM and Saccharine TM as sweetening agents. Well written and offering good, sound advice, this book nevertheless appears to be aimed more at the diabetic than the arthritic, though most people would benefit from the information. Recommended where there is demand for her books. (Index not seen.)Loraine F. Sweetland, IPS Information Problem Solvers, Crossville, TN
