More About the Author
I'm THE RECIPE DOCTOR and my motto is...changing the way America eats, one recipe at a time! My other motto is...healthy food isn't going to do anyone any good if no ones eating it--it HAS to taste good and be easy to make.
So, are you with me? I spent a year researching all the research examples of FOOD SYNERGY (how components within food and between food work together in your body for maximum health benefit) and the result was one of my favorite books: FOOD SYNERGY (Rodale, 2008). If you don't have a lot of time, read the introduction and go straight to chapter 7. This chapter will blow your mind...it's the "aha" chapter and it puts everything together and shows you how the 10 synergy superfoods can transform your diet. The rest of the book is filled with fun and easy to make recipes and each recipe includes "food synergy notes" which list for you the various food synergy partnerships represented in that recipe (and there are usually at least 3 in each).
My next book is coming out in Spring 2010, TELL ME WHAT TO EAT IF I SUFFER FROM HEART DISEASE, and it's going to help anyone who is at risk of heart disease or has heart disease. I'm really excited about this book because it includes and makes sense of the latest research advancements. I had several well known cardiologists review the book and I'm thrilled that they loved it and thought it would help their patients greatly.
On a lighter note... I often get asked what my favorite type of cooking is and hands down it's good old homestyle cooking...you know...fruit crisps, lasagna, oven-fried chicken, chocolate chip cookies, etc. Nothing too fancy, just delicious! So, imagine how much fun I had working on my cookbooks "Comfort Food Makeovers" and "Fry Light, Fry Right!."
I love to "makeover" all your favorite recipes into healthful versions that taste just as great but have less calories, fat, and saturated fat and more smart fats (like omega-3s), and fiber and nutrients.
Please join my FREE Recipe Doctor club where I email you one of my all-time favorite recipe makeovers each month (just go to my website, www.recipedoctor.com and look in the upper right-hand corner).
If you've made it this far down the page, I'll let you in on a little secret--My big professional hope is to have a cooking show (a healthy one of course). In my books I try to write so that you feel like I'm right there with you holding your hand as we talk about whatever the subject of the book is (diabetes, menopause, IBS, etc...) Maybe with a cooking show, I really can be there with you!
