About the Author

Jen Arricale (pronounced ah-ri-KAHL-ay ) is an advocate for healthy eating while enjoying life. Having previously spent 20 years as a financial executive with Fortune 500 companies, Jen understands the challenges and benefits of nurturing a healthy self while living a busy life. As a fitness chef, champion natural physique competitor, published author and accomplished marathoner, Jen teaches corporations, groups and individuals how to eat healthy without sacrificing a fun, full and balanced life. Jen shares her passion and talents through television and film, public speaking, publications, video, blogs and newsletters.

Jen has a story that connects with many. As a late teen and young adult, Jen went through a personal journey of loss of control which affected how she fed and treated herself. Realizing she couldn't continue this downward spiral, Jen used these challenging times as an opportunity to learn new things and cultivate the only power she could find at the time: control over her body and health. As a result, Jen was able to reshape her relationship with food on healthier terms while never sacrificing taste or the joy of sharing and celebrating around food.

Jen's passion to share the comfort and happiness she found in something so simple loving one's self with healthy food has become the focus of her time, energy and thoughts. Jen's recipes and preparation methods result in delicious meals with little fuss, and always reflect a healthy balanced approach to food and life. In Jen's words, the most important thing of all is to love yourself, love your life, and spread it around!

Format: Paperback
Before Jen came to visit, I would buy lots of fresh veggies and lean meats, with lots of motivation and ideas to cook great dishes for my family. Then I'd run in to a wall a day or so later. I'd quickly run out of ideas for meals, or I would get caught up in things and next thing I knew it was almost dinner time, and I had nothing but a fridge of items. Or worse, I'd begin to forget what I had scoped out for dinners throughout the week. I always ended up throwing much of the good stuff away. Jen introduced me to "batch cooking". I set aside one morning, or afternoon, about 3-4 hours, at the beginning of the week, and I made 3-4 different meals that we could rotate through. We never ate the same thing two times in a row, which was great! Jen showed me little tricks such as keeping salad in a dry cereal container, in the fridge (it lasts for over 6 days, and is good...I actually eat leftover salad now!) Having salad ready to go, without having to pull 6 different ingredients out and cutting and shredding, allows me to eat a hearty lunch, topped with some already prepared protein (chicken or spicy flavorful ground turkey breast) and get out the door! She lead me to realize you don't have to have breakfast food for breakfast! protein and veggies are good any time of day! Jen helped me turn my shopping and cooking regime into a real system. Her cookbook now has little hand written notes in it, and it always accompanies me to the grocery store. I find myself exercising little tips like "as your spinich is turning...freeze it! its great in smoothies, or pasta sauces! It may not seem like rocket science, but with four kids, jam packed schedules and lots and lots of "to do" lists, healthy cooking becomes a chore, and Jens presense in my kitchen has removed one stressor from the table. This book is not a book you'll make one thing out of then toss to the side. Its a book you'll make three things out of at once!

This is an amazingly creative, yet easy cookbook. Not only are the recipes excellent and guilt free (hello, the protein brownies!) they are super simple to prepare. The color photos are excellent guides and, let's face it, pretty tempting. But hey, who cares? I know that the recipes in this book are healthy and most of all yummy. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is either wanting to learn how to eat healthy or who already is and looking for new ideas. Jen proves that eating healthy doesn't mean sacrificing taste or presentation. I love this book!

My husband and I were invited to a potluck dinner an hour before it began so I didn't have time or the ingredients to cook anything. All I had in the fridge except some lettuce and some veggies. I needed a killer dressing so I perused through Jen's Healthy Recipes for a Busy Life book.
Bingo...simple and delicious on page 147. But wait! Something on the page I have never seen in a cookbook before. Serving and leftover suggestions. Simply brilliant. I am stoked about making everything in the book and using the leftover ideas. Lets get cook'n
