Tilapia and Spinach Roll-ups with Shallot and White Wine Sauce

Serves 4; 3 ounces fish per serving

Mild-flavored tilapia, which blends so nicely with other foods, is complemented here with baby spinach leaves and a topping of crushed walnuts.

Ingredients
4 tilapia fillets (about 4 ounces each)
1/4 teaspoon salt
Pepper to taste
5 ounces fresh baby spinach leaves
1/2 cup shredded or grated Parmesan cheese
1 cup dry white wine (regular or nonalcoholic), plus more as needed
1/2 cup fat-free, low-sodium chicken broth or low-sodium
vegetable broth, plus more as needed
1 medium shallot, minced
2 tablespoons walnuts, crushed

To Prepare

Preheat the oven to 375°F.

Rinse the tilapia and pat dry with paper towels. Place the fish on a flat surface. Sprinkle the fish with the salt and pepper. Place the spinach on the fish. Sprinkle with the Parmesan. Starting at a short end, roll each fillet jelly-roll style. Secure each roll-up with a wooden toothpick. Place the fillets in a glass 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish.

Pour the wine and broth over the fish, using enough liquid to fill the dish to a depth of about 1/2 inch.

Sprinkle the shallot over the fish.

Bake, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the fish flakes easily when tested with a fork.

To serve, using a slotted pancake turner, transfer the roll-ups to plates. Sprinkle with the walnuts.

This is a very good weight loss/fitness plan.
J. B. Smith
I really like the No-Fad Diet book because it is easy to follow and it also has good, easy recipes.
Debbi Gobeille
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has tried and failed with the "fad" diets.

The recipes are wonderful. They use the best of the best nutritional and culinary knowledge to make low cost, low cal, low fat and easy to prepare menu selections. It's like having a new favorite cookbook: the kind that compells you to get excited about trying each and every recipe throughout the year, and I have tried several of the recipes already. As a former chef, I appreciate the dignity of the recipes but I am also pleased that the "lay person" would also be able to prepare all the dishes with confidence and ease.

I am a burnt out "Zoner". This summer I watched the scales go higher and higher, commensurate with my apathy for sensible eating. Unacceptable behavior but inevitable considering the five year stretch of in-the-Zone living I did.

I read an article in BOOM, a newpaper for baby boomers. The reporter was assigned the task of finding a "diet that worked". He had on his list the AMA NO FAD DIET. Intrigued, he and his wife decided to give it a try. He reported that within weeks he had lost inches and was experiencing that all important psychological feeling of wellness that comes along with a healthy balanced eating plan. It was good timing and I bought the book immediately.

I think it most important to have finally found some guidelines that are presented in a manner that really feels like new found knowledge, instead of a mixed up version of the same old same old. The first part of the book, which discusses three different eating plans and why and how to choose which works best for you somehow did a wonderful job of just "sticking" in my mind. It's rare in this kind of book to find that you actually feel satisfied in the reading of it and have knowledge retention afterwards.

I just got this book after searching for a plan that would work for me and my boyfriend. We are both average in weight and only need to drop 15 pounds which isn't outrageous, but our current lifestyle is clearly not conducive to that. I love to cook, but I don't want to struggle every night after work trying to make dishes that are confusing and frankly, sound gross. This book offers a structured plan that takes the guesswork out of shopping and many of the dishes are healthier versions of familiar favorites. One person here commented that some of the recipes don't seem heart healthy because they include trans-fats. Yes, there is a menu item titled "glazed doughnut" and one titled "bacon biscuit". But if you look at the entire 2 week menu, it is an exception to the rule. Let's face it, like many of us my boyfriend goes to an office that brings in breakfast Every Friday. At least it's built into the plan that, yes, Friday morning you can have a doughnut but then steers you back throughout the rest of the day. And what about the meetings where they pass around a menu and say, "pick something from this sandwich shop because we are having a lunch meeting"? Thankfully, the AHA has built these scenarios into the plan as well and suggests lower fat/lower calorie options. For working professionals, this book is great. I'm not going prepare elaborate homemade lunches and snacks everyday to take to work (one book called for soba noodles with peanut-tofu sauce and miso soup...I'm not making that at 5 a.m.!). Graham crackers, fruit, carrots and bean dip, though are do-able snacks and much better choices than whatever is in the vending machine.

As a final note - for those women out there whose boyfriend/husband is resistant to strict diets - this is the most reasonable choice.

This is a very good weight loss/fitness plan. Beware - there aren't any promises of dropping 10Lbs in the next week. Rather, this a a guide for an overall healthier life style. It has a great, easy to follow system for creating your own diets and exercise program based on your habits and personal experiences. It has over 200 recipes for soups, salad, cassaroles and everything else under the sun to help you eat right. While dieting is neither truly fun or easy, this plan will help keep you on the right track.

Format: Hardcover
This is a comprehensive book that tries to guide readers clear of get-thin-quick schemes and focus on the only tried-and true method of long-term weight loss. By counting calories and taking in less per meal by reducing the sizes or percentage of the foods consume per sitting. The book offers substantial advice for changing the reader's behaviors while focusing on meal plans based on 3 different calorie levels and healthy recipes.

There is a lot of good advice about customizing your approach using 3 key concepts

1.Think before you eat

2. Eat well

3. Exercise more

These keys are the author's "circles of success" for weight loss. Take home message Fad diets don't work, eat less, eat healthily and exercise more.

I purchased this book looking for a true guide to healthy eating habits without sacrificing the joy of cooking and eating. I was not disappointed. The recipes are great and the weight loss comes naturally. The transition is an easy one if you simply follow the technics and recommendations contained in the book.
