Overview

     From the team that brought you SparkPeople.com, America’s #1 weight-loss and fitness site, and the New York Times bestseller The Spark, comes The SparkPeople Cookbook. This practical yet inspirational guide takes the guesswork out of making delicious, healthy meals and losing weight.

     Award-winning chef Meg Galvin and SparkRecipes editor Stepfanie Romine have paired up to create this collection of more than 160 all-new satisfying, sustaining, and stress-free recipes that streamline your healthy-eating efforts. With a focus on real food, generous portions, and great flavor, these recipes are not part of a fad diet. They aren’t about obscure ingredients, eliminating key components of a balanced diet, or slaving away at the stove. They are about making smart choices and eating food you love.

     But this is more than a collection of recipes—it’s an education. The SparkPeople philosophy is about encouraging people to achieve personal goals with the support of others. So along with the recipes, you’ll find step-by-step how-tos about the healthiest, most taste-enhancing cooking techniques; lists of kitchen essentials; and simple ingredient swaps that maximize flavor, while cutting fat and calories, plus you’ll read motivational SparkPeople success stories from members who have gone through life-changing transformations.

     In addition, you’ll find:

·         Results from the SparkPeople “Ditch the Diet” Taste Test, which proves that you don’t have to eat tasteless food to lose weight.

·         150 meal ideas and recipes that take 30 minutes or less to prepare—plus dozens of other meals for days when you have more time.

·         Two weeks of meal plans that include breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks.

     So whether you’re a novice taking the first steps to improve your health or a seasoned cook just looking for new, healthy recipes to add to your repertoire, this cookbook is for you. Learn to love your food, lose the weight, and ditch the diet forever!

One of the best cookbooks I have ever owned. Recipes are simple, yet tasty and more importantly they are healthy for us. And the best part, they don't take hours of preparation and cooking time. A must have in your kitchen!

Cookbooks can be a lot of fun and this one is no exception. Spark People is an organization that helps people lead healthier lives by promoting good eating habits and exercise. Nothing new, right? Well, I found some new ideas and think you will too. The book begins with tips and tricks as well as the success stories of real people. The Get Ready section helps you find out how to be a satisfied, sustained, and stress free diner. The Get Cooking section helps you prepare for cooking not only with the food, but also with your kitchen. There are sample meal plans, a guide to portion sizes, and more. Some of the many recipes are: Garlic Chicken Slaw in Lettuce Cups; French Onion Soup with Whole Wheat Croutons; Cornish Hens with Apple-Pecan Stuffing; Spinach Salad with Cherries and Pomegranate Vinaigrette; and Baked Starburst Fries. Come on and give this cookbook a try. What have you got to lose? I am having a lot of fun with this cookbook. The recipes are normal foods, so they fit into a normal lifestyle. The difference is in the preparation, and the guidance is all in the book. I really love trying the recipes, especially the smoothies. Thank you to Net Galley for the copy I have on my Nook. I can't wait to buy a copy!

This is a great healthy living and eating resource. The recipes are great, the success stories inspiring and the helpful resources includes a weekly meal plan and advice on creating a healthy food grocery list. The best part is that the recipes don't taste low-fat, the ones I have cooked are fantastic!
