From the Author
As a nutritionist, I felt it was important to give family's a heads up on what constitutes good nutrition without putting additional spin on a very basic, but ever evolving science. Knowing what I do about nutrition and being a former caterer, I must admit to being discouraged when it came time to cook for my own family. The whole wheat recipes I found were disastrous: heavy, thick and almost inedible. Other "healthy" recipes had strange ingredients and no flavor. I sought to remedy that with this book: give families what they want: good, solid information about nutrition and then familiar family recipes that show the reader how to use this nutritional information without sacrificing what they love. I feel I have accomplished that with this book (and for the children, with the unit studies that accommodate the book).
