Overview

Here are 150 mouthwatering recipes along with all the advice you need to keep your family healthy and energetic.
Eating together as a family makes for stronger families and more responsible children. Hope Ricciotti of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and her husband chef, Vincent Connelly, tell you their secrets for making family meals a time of joy and good eating. Dr. Ricciotti gives the latest nutritional advice for babies, children, and adults, so you know what your family's needs are. She includes advice on how to get the whole family up and exercising. Easy and fast-to-cook recipes (such as Pan-Fried Chicken Sandwich with Avocado and Jack Cheese) make meeting everyone's nutritional needs a delicious delight. The authors suggest how to entice even picky eaters (Oven Baked Tacos) and provide recipes where vegetables can be put as side dishes for children or combined for a more sophisticated dish, suiting everyone's tastes (Rice Noodles with Peanut Sauce and Broccoli). They finish off dinner with luscious desserts, such as Real Chocolate Pudding.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Obstetrician/gynecologist Ricciotti and her chef/husband Connelly combine a wellness strategy and recipe book, believing healthy eating "should be your lifestyle-not a diet." With two sections ("Health and Nutrition" and "Recipes"), the authors' fitness plan leaves almost no dietary contingency unexamined. They explain the myriad healthy eating "pyramids" and sort through the carbohydrate conundrum. To underscore the connection between diet, exercise and health, they include body-mass index charts for adults and children. In assessing today's trend diets (including The Zone and Atkins), Ricciotti and Connelly maintain "it's not what you eat; it is how much you eat." To support their "Don't diet-learn to cook" thesis, the authors include a "Kids in the Kitchen" chapter, and healthful, straightforward recipes for dishes like Spinach with Raisins and Pine Nuts, Smoky Backyard Chicken, and Hummus with Horseradish. A chapter on kids' favorites includes Oven-Baked Tacos and Fish Sticks made from halibut fillet. Another on treats like smoothies and Frozen Chocolate-Marshmallow Soy Cream Pie complete the book. Orderly and brimming with commonsense advice for seeing and changing unhealthy eating patterns, this gimmick-free cookbook's creative yet substantial recipes should appeal to seasoned cooks or to any readers looking to improve their diet.
