Overview

A New York Times' bestselling author's guide to quick and healthy everyday meals

As weekly host of the Food Network's Healthy Appetite, Ellie Krieger is known for creating light and healthy dishes that taste great and are easy enough for the busiest people to prepare. Now, Ellie has put together a collection of meal solutions for those of us who love food and want to eat well but struggle to make it happen given life's hectic pace. With 150 delicious, easy-to-prepare, fortifying recipes, Ellie provides dishes that tackle every possible mealtime situation. Illustrated with 50 full-color photos, there are recipes for:

  • Grab-and-go breakfasts for hectic days, as well as easy breakfast options for more leisurely mornings
  • Lunches to go, each road-tested in a cooler pack, along with at-home lunches for when you have the luxury of eating in
  • A month's worth of different rush-hour dinners-fabulous meals you can whip up in less than thirty minutes-as well as dinners for days when you have a little more time to marinate or roast, but still want it all to be effortless
  • Decadent desserts, some ready in minutes, others truly worth waiting for-all easily pulled together

As a mom with a full-time job, Ellie knows how busy life is when you're juggling your family's needs. Now, you can stop stressing over whether to eat healthily or to eat fast. The recipes here-from Cheddar Apple Quesadilla, Pork Piccata with Spinach and Garlic Mashed Potatoes, Marinated Flank Steak with Blue Cheese Sauce to Chocolate-Cream Cheese Panini Bites and Fig and Ginger Truffles-are ideal, regardless of the time, or experience, you have in the kitchen.

When so much in life is complicated, isn't it nice to know that eating doesn't have to be? After making and enjoying the meals in this book, you will say along with the title, "That was SO EASY!"

Editorial Reviews

In Ellie Krieger's book, the emphasis is on easy; but with two nutrition degrees under her belt, this registered dietician doesn't sacrifice healthfulness. The popular host of Food Network's Healthy Appetite manages to infuse the 150 quick-fix recipes of So Easy with nutrition that you won't often find at fast-food restaurants. And, like the meals in her The Food You Crave, these recipes possess addictive appeal: sample, for instance, the Pork Piccata with Spinach and Garlic Mashed Potatoes; the Cheddar Apple Quesadilla; or the Chocolate-Cream Cheese Panini Bites. An artfully orchestrated cookbook for healthy families on the move.

I've been cooking out of this book for about 6 weeks now. The recipes are fantastic, and after you make them a couple times, then they really are, FAST, under 30minutes to make. My kids are eating the meals as well. They are young, so it wasn't hard getting their tastes accustomed. I think the meals are absolutely fantastic & i love the ease of use of the cookbook. She has a great set up with a "grocery list" in the front of all the things you'll need to use her book. And I like how her book is broke down into the under 30minute meals, and the "kicking back" meals. I have lost weight on these meals. i'm in my second trimester, so I know it's from these recipes! One supper recipe feeds my family of 4, and then i have enough for my lunch the next day. a great set up, keeping my daily calories low, with nutrient-dense food. I do like this book a little better than her other book, The Food You Crave. This book is perfect for a busy family!!

I found this cook book very easy to use. It demonstrates easy, how-to-use demonstrations of almost every recipe. For someone who doesn't know how to cook, it is a great book for them to have. Also for "great cooks" too. This is a better way of eating and cooking for a more healthful life. I found the recipes very easy to follow. Most of the ingredients you already have in your pantry. There are a few ingredients that you probably will have to go out and buy, but it is worth it. I have so many cook books already, but if you want oner with a purpose, this is it! I definitely will put this book in my library of cookbooks. This one is a keeper for me! Don't be afraid that the recipes are not very tasteful and delicious, because they are. There isn't any "foreign" taste in here, just very delicious, everyday meals you would ordinarily make. They are just healthy, and you would never know it. You won't be sorry if you get this cookbook. If you want to be more health conscious and get you family eating a more balanced meal which is also healthy, this book is for you.

Another great book from Ellie Krieger. Ellie gives us all the tools we need to take care of ourselves. She provides everyon with information on essential nutrients of each recipe and also serving size. Also she includes different sections for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is also two sections on dessert included. If those who are in a rush this book is great. She also includes sections if you have more time to spare. You can try her start right smoothie. I dont like nonfat milk so I usually add soy instead. I enjoy having her chedar apple quesadilla. Its quick and easy and only three ingredients. For lunch I love the gazpacho with shrimp. Its light and yummy. I really like the asian chicken wrap. The best part is the asian sauce with thai chilles, soy sauce and seasme oil. In the section lunch at home there is a hearty salad with grilled beef, jicama and apple. This is another Asian inspiried salad if you have more time to spare. Now we move on to dinner I enjoy having the bbq chicken with classic coleslaw. I usually roast a chicken and save the leftovers for the next day. So I use the leftovers to make this dish. Its got liquid smoke, garlic, onions just fabulous. When I have a bit more time I like to eat white turkey chili. Sometimes I use chicken if I dont have time to get turkey. It comes out the same for the most part. I also like the salmon florentine with quinoa pilaf. The only part of the book I did not care for much is the dessert section. I know its suppose to be healthy but no thank you. I rather have a small piece of cake with the works. I cant give that up :-). The last part if the nutritional date index of all the recipes in the book. Enjoy I hope you all love it.

This book was given to me as a gift. I have enjoyed the recipes that I have tried so far and look forward to using many more of them. I am a registered dietitian and I have recommended this book to several of my patients that need "heart healthy cooking" ideas. The recipes are easy to follow and use standard ingredients. Some recipes sound very gourmet but Ellie's instructions are easy to follow and the food is very flavorful. I have only watched Ellie's show on Food Network a couple of times, but I hope to start watching it more often. This book is for people who want good tasting food that is easy and quick to prepare.

Delicious...that is what I say about Ellie's recipies. Beautiful...that is what I say about Ellie's books. My Ellie books are dog-eared, filled with sticky notes and stained...all the marks of a great cook book.

I consider myself a relatively accomplished cook and find that the main issue with a lot of "healthy" recipes is that the results lack good flavor and taste. I have had good success with Krieger's contributions in Fine Cooking magazine so I decided to give this book a try. I have had good success with the 7-10 recipes that I've made so far - regardless of whether the recipe was for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I appreciate the abundance of flavors, the unique spin of some of the recipes and the nutritional information. With a 10 month-old in the family, I need a variety of quick recipes at hand and now I have another resource at my disposal.

There isn't ONE recipe I've tried in this book that hasn't been absolutely delicious! Even the lentil with kale dish: I'd never tried kale and was so skeptical! The kale was so good, I had it the next day with Ellie's salmon cakes, and normally, I hate salmon cakes. You have to try one of these cookbooks! I also have "The Food you Crave," and the same review applies to those recipes, also. Ellie Krieger is a true magician when it comes to cooking/nutrition and all things related. I will be collecting and utilizing the rest of her cookbooks. Amazing food!

Hi - tell publisher to ease up and show at least one recipe to help in deciding whether to purchase for ebook - I suppose I could go to store and flip through - more convenient to have a :sample recipe...didn't buy

Ellie's recipes are great! They are easy to follow and most use common ingredients. I have not tried all the recipes I want to, but definitely will as time permits. Her attitude is great and she is thoughtful in her commentary and tips.
PSU_Kait More than 1 year ago
I love this book! I've tried several recipes and have had amazing results. I am new to cooking, teaching myself, and would definitely recommend this book. There are no obscure ingredients and the food does not taste like "diet" food. The recipes are so full of flavor you don't feel like you're missing out! My favorite recipe so far - the better burgers!

I purchased this cookbook for my daughter for Christmas. Iam so glad I did. She has really enjoyed the recipes, she is a novice cook but the recipes are easy to follow and she liked the photos of the recipe so she can see how the recipe will turn out. She tried out the curried chicken salad and it was great. She is a teacher and doesnt have alot of time for cooking but the recipe are very easy and delicious

As usual, Ellie Krieger's food is presented in an appealing way, directions in recipes are precise, and her creative, healthy approach makes her food interesting and fairly easy to prepare.
