Do you think you have to choose between good food and good health? Between foods that might help you live longer -- or just make it seem longer? Between fast, high-fat foods and time-consuming, low-fat meals?
Now you don't. In Everyday Cooking with Dr. Dean Ornish, Dr. Ornish teaches you that you don't have to make compromises in your diet. You can enjoy fast, easy-to-prepare meals that are delicious and nutritious, made with familiar, inexpensive and easy-to-find ingredients.
Dr. Ornish and his colleagues present 150 simple yet extraordinary recipes for making fresh, delicious, everyday meals. These time-saving recipes are organized into 45 seasonal menus to take advantage of the freshest ingredients.
The recipes for everyday meals reflect good, homestyle cooking. You'll find slimmed-down versions of familiar foods like Old-Fashioned Potato Salad, Creamy Coleslaw, enchiladas and lasagna. And here are recipes for quick dishes that you may not have in your repertoire, such as Creamy Mushroom Stroganoff, Chickpea Stew with Couscous, Creamy Corn Soup and Pizza with Roasted Eggplant and Peppers. These are the kind of dishes you will want to make again and again, comfort foods that make it even more pleasurable to eat at home than to dine out.
In addition to offering an exhaustive and tempting selection of recipes, Dr. Ornish gives clear, detailed instructions that interweave techniques, charts and helpful sidebars; advice on using leftovers, suggestions for alternative ways to season or serve a dish, how to keep a plentiful pantry, a shop-smart guide with supermarket tips and traps, how to equip your low-fat kitchen, how to cook legumes and grains, how to pack a better lunch box, how to choose better bread and scores of other helpful tips. Each recipe is also accompanied by a nutrient analysis designed to give you a useful nutritional profile of the food you eat.
For the millions who were inspired by Dr. Ornish's previous books, this companion cookbook makes his way of eating fast and fun, easy and extraordinary. Drawing on his work training others to adapt his program, Dr. Ornish presents recipes that are extremely low in fat and cholesterol and high in flavor. These simple choices may result in powerful changes in your health and well-being.

to the heart as a result of following it. But, I went to all the
grocery stores in my location to see if I could purchase products that
have no fat, and no sugar and no eggs. Even in the Health Food sections,
I found very little items that would allow me to comply with the diet.
I don't mind cooking from scratch some times, but I am just not able to
most of the time because of my schedule. However, there are some good
recipes in it that I can use.
