5.0 out of 5 stars Now you have no excuse not to cook healthy! April 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the biggest hurdles faced by people trying to cook healthy is that it can be time-consuming. And most of us lead very busy lives. So healthy eating falls to the wayside. But now you can eat healthy without spending all your time in the kitchen with these 35 delicious recipes. Even just trying to eat healthier part of the time is going to lead to a healthier you...

This author has managed to combine healthy with exciting and delicious in the kitchen. I can't wait to try the Salmon BLT, Sweet and Spicy Chicken, Spicy Orange Beef and the Thai Red Vegetable Curry. While I tend to shy away from vegetarian recipes, she includes several which actually look tasty. No matter what your tastes, I think you will find something you like in this cookbook. Finding things you actually like is key to eating healthier.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Recipes! April 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Always on the lookout for new recipes, this is a great book!

First of all, I had never heard of yogurt butter - this will be a keeper....

The NY Strip with Portobello mushrooms in red wine sounds delicious.

Also, two chicken recipes that I will try

Chicken breast with olives, lemon and feta cheese and

Sweet and Spicy chicken - the combination of hot pepper jelly and low fat cream cheese is great...

Can hardly wait to try out some new ones.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nice variety July 5, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The selections and ingredients were interesting and tasty. There are ideas for seafood, chicken, and beef that integrate a variety of vegetables and several different spices and condiments. The cooking tips were new to me and useful. However, there was not any specific calorie or nutritional value information.

2.0 out of 5 stars Fancy ingredients November 24, 2013

The recipes call for expensive and fancy ingredients. I'm a busy Mom and the recipes seem elaborated and time consuming. Not appealing at least for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Healthy in the REAL World June 23, 2013
By Wayne
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you're worried that eating healthy has to mean nothing but a couple of lettuce leaves on your plate, this book shows you that you can eat healthier without having to give up all the tastes you love or live on salads. This isn't the 5-minute meals plan, or the just-a-few-ingredients-thrown-together plan, either -- it IS real cooking. You might think some of the recipes look daunting, but they aren't really, and all the ones I've tried (with just pretty basic cooking skills and equipment) have turned out fine. And the food tastes good, and interesting enough to be worth the bit of effort to shop and prepare it at home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really good stuff! June 9, 2013
By Sarah L
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Most of these types of books are very thin on helpful recipes but this one has a ton of good recipes and helpful tips for preparing healthy meals in a hurry. Anyone who has tried to feed their husband a salad for dinner will appreciate that there is a difficult balance between fast, healthy, and still being something that they will eat! You will find lots of good solutions right here. Definitely recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just one of the tips I learned made it worth it. April 13, 2013
By Nate R
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
One of the most frustrating things for me when I cook is how fast fresh garlic scorches in oil when I'm trying to saute it.

Helen's tips and recipes in this book are awesome.

More About the Author

I am a San Francisco Bay Area resident, writer and food lover. I have been cooking, teaching, writing and eating great food for, well, a very VERY long time. I've written two heart-healthy cookbooks with John Schroeder, M.D., cardiologist at Stanford University. My work has appeared in the sadly departed Gourmet Magazine, as well as Bon Appétit, Self Magazine and Men's Fitness, among other publications. I have written many articles and online columns and have made numerous TV and radio appearances. I've given many cooking demonstrations and classes in the Bay Area and on the the east coast. For many years I have run my own cooking school and catering business and did menu consulting and development for restaurants.

In addition to my passion for cooking, I also teach creative writing, memoir and manuscript consultant. I have recently launched a collection of children's books with the Where's Emma and The Adventures of Farty Arty series, written under the pen name, Martyn J. Fartyyn, Esq., and When Mikey Made the Rules, by Helen Cassidy Page.

Under the name Cassie Page I have published The Darling Valley Cozy Mystery series and Tuesday's Tea Leaf Cozy Mysteries.

Soon I hope to putting the finishing touches on my first novel set in 18th century Ireland, The Equal of God. My creative streak extends to photography, knitting, for which my daughter is usually the beneficiary, and interior decorating. My ideal day consists of a walk through one of San Francisco's many Farmers' Markets, a stop at a café overlooking a gorgeous vista and a heart-meltingly good dinner, either home-cooked or in one of the city's world-renowned restaurants. Could life be better? Well, yes. If the 49er's win the Superbowl this year!
