"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."
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.)
