The Queen of easy home cooking serves up more than 200 outrageously good recipes. And they're good for you!
In this long-awaited sequel to her million-copy bestseller Healthy Homestyle Cooking, Evelyn Tribole proves once and for all that home cooking can be just like Grandma used to make-- minus the fat and fuss! From easy oven-baked goodies like Spiced Apple Muffins to down-home Sunday dinners like Barbecue Pot Roast with Roasted Garlic Mashed Potatoes, these innovative new recipes will have your family clamoring for more, more, more! And with no hard-to-find ingredients or time-consuming techniques, you'll have no problem using these recipes again and again.
An award-winning dietitian, Tribole reviews the basics of nutrition and clears up the confusion surrounding carbohydrates, sodium, fatty acids, and phytochemicals. She also reveals her insider secrets to recipe makeovers, both tried-and-true and brand new. Here's a hint: Straight substitutions don't always work. (Anyone who has spread fat-free cream cheese on a bagel knows the truth in this.) Lots of reliable fat-saving swaps and flavor-boosting tricks are out there, and Tribole knows them all.
Besides sound nutritional wisdom and fail-safe cooking tips, what truly sets this book apart are the simple recipes, so delicious that you'll forget how healthy they are. For breakfast or brunch, try a new twist on an old favorite: Stuffed French Toast. In a hurry? Fifteen-minute meals like Speedy Tostadas or Spicy Garlic Shrimp will prevent a pit stop at the local fast-food joint. Expecting company? Chicken Kiev or Beef Pinwheels are sure to impress, and you can cap the meal with a satisfyingly sweet slice of Peanut Butter Pie or Strawberry Cheesecake. With chapters on meatless main dishes, salads, appetizers, side dishes, and a range of "pastabilities," More Healthy Homestyle Cooking has something for everyone at every course.
In each and every recipe, Tribole explains exactly how she reduced the fat, calories, cholesterol, and sodium or increased the fiber. Plus, she provides a complete nutritional analysis and a Nutrition Scorecard that takes a before-and-after look at calories and fat.
Packed with useful information, personal anecdotes, and easy recipes that have proven appeal, More Healthy Homestyle Cooking is sure to be as popular as its predecessor.
