Overview

This long-awaited collection of more than 350 recipes represents favorites from EatingWell, The Magazine of Food & Health, that have migrated to the top of an elite heap of new and classic dishes now numbering well into the thousands. These are the exciting new recipes our own staff members take home at night alongside the time-tested winners that dedicated readers call and write to request over and over again. All are freshly updated, with improved nutritional analyses and an eye to today's fast-evolving nutritional guidelines. Within these pages you'll find clear, simple and often very quick recipes. You'll also find a unique Healthy Weight-Loss Index that identifies which recipes fit into particular diet guidelines, rating them on overall health (calories, carbohydrates and fats), fiber content, and which recipes best address the needs of those on low-carbohydrate weight-loss plans. Losing weight no longer has to mean sacrificing fine dining.

Editorial Reviews

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. (Sept.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    Great and GOOD

    What a marvalous cookbook. I have a nutrition backround and love this book. I love the tips and the stars that tell you if it is a high fiber, healthy weight or a low carb. I have diabetics that I cook for. It is easy to pick a recipe that will work. I have cooked more that 20 of these recipes. The tips, the VERY complete nutritional info and explanations of what they did to lighten up the recipes help inspire anyone to lighten up and healthy up their favorites. GREAT GIFT.

    Best cookbook ever!

    I love this cookbook because every recipe is easy and delicious. Most of the ingredients are already around; once you've stocked your spice cabinet. Everything is fresh and fabulous!

    This has become one of my favorite cookbooks!

    This has become one of my favorite cookbooks. The recipes are healthy but have not lost any flavor. There are several charts that are extremely helpful in understanding the basics of nutrition. The chocolate cake recipe is amazing and the carmelized onion braised roast is now the only way I will fix a roast.
