Editorial Reviews

The Jackson Sun
Those drowning in a sea of low-carb products and their advertisements can find some sanity in the October cookbook 'The Fitness Kitchen,' by Shelly Sinton, M.S. The book brings flavor instead of fad into the kitchen.
The Port Arthur News
Get the 'attitude' right that cooking is fun and beneficial to your family.
Wichita Eagle
The Fitness Kitchen by Shelly Sinton is organized around Sinton's 10 principles of a "fit kitchen," including the right kitchen gear, right cooking methods and even the right way to eat.
Oxygen
A well laid-out, informative health resource, this book makes cooking a joy and eating a thrill.
Wisconsin Bookwatch
The Fitness Kitchen will prove a welcome and popular addition to any personal kitchen cookbook collection.
Juneau Empire, (Ak) - Kathy Ward
Sinton makes it easy to start out the new year with best intentions.
Tri-City Herald - Loretto J. Hulse
"Author Shelly Sinton has delivered what the Atkins, the South Beach and countless other diet books only promised — a truly livable way to eat what you like and keep control of your weight, too."
Library Journal
Moderation is key in this beginner's guide to healthy cooking by recipe tester/reviewer Sinton. Ten "Fitness Kitchen Principles" make up the chapters, covering everything from cooking methods and tools to exercise while cooking and maintaining a winning attitude toward food. Sinton's mantra is similar to Kathleen Daelemans's in Getting Thin and Loving Food: she feels that deprivation will lead only to bingeing and self-recrimination. With recipes for all times of day, including condiments and drinks, Sinton has collected easily modifiable dishes for everyone, including both vegetarians and carnivores. Many recipes (e.g., Chai Spiced Brown Rice Pudding) are easy to make or sound like they would be worth a little extra time and effort. Sources and inspirations, as well as nutritional information for each recipe, are provided. Recommended for public libraries. (Index not seen.)
